The Sunday Brunch is something that can not be missed if you stay in Glynn County! My wife and I went over the 4th of July weekend. We did make reservations, which I highly advise. The food and experience is exceptional! The wait staff are...More

It's always lovely returning to the Jekyll Island Club- a well established historic hotel upholding the traditions of the beautiful area and those powerhouse families that originally built the area and were club members such as notable names like the J.P.

The hotel itself is gorgeous and inside the restaurant, the decor is beautiful and luxurious but our meal was disappointing. After enjoying the delicious hot complimentary bread, our special salad of the day was filled with a variety of lettuce and not much of anything...More

We met friends here for dinner and it was very nice. Every meal was perfect and the restored Victorian hotel and restaurant was really a treat. The cuisine was mostly "southern" but there wasn't a choice on Trip Advisor of that style of cooking. (They...More

My family and I enjoyed a delicious Sunday Brunch with an Omelet that was divine along with perfect grits and bacon so crisp you could hold it in hand. The sides were excellent, but took second place to Omelet. Service was way above average! Absolutely...More

There were 4 of us, celebrating 2 anniversaries. It couldn't have been any more special. The food is excellent. The atmosphere is elegant, yet not stuffy. The service was outstanding. Our server, Kathy, did a phenomenal job. Can't wait to go back!

We are planning a family reunion for our 50th anniversary next June. We will be a party of 15, 9 children and six adults. Do you have a private room? Is there a dress code (one family is traveling from Alaska so may not have proper attire). Can a fixed menu be planned or do we have to order from the regular menu. Are there special charges for a large group? Can a special desserat be ordered for the group?

The Jekyll Island Club Hotel Grand Dining Room continues to be the scene of social gatherings and gourmet experiences. Beautifully restored in the Victorian mode, the room is dominated by Ionic columns and gleaming white woodwork. Three handsome fireplaces, complete with intricately carved mantle pieces and marble surrounds, add warmth and cheer on a winter’s day. The lawns and the river can be seen through expansive windows, and the first blossoms of crepe myrtle and magnolia trees color the landscape in early spring. The glow of candlelight and piano music create an atmosphere of romance and anticipation of the gourmet meal to come. A cause celebre in Southern Georgia dining is the Grand Dining Room’s Sunday brunch, a culinary and visual delight. The last Sunday of most months boasts Sunday Dinner Dance with gourmet dining and ballroom dancing.
