The meal and service were great, as usual, and the ambiance was outstanding. This hotel decorates for Christmas, both inside and out, like none other. The huge Christmas tree and the white lights in the magestic old oak trees turn the grounds into a fairyland. Our holiday season is not complete without an evening and dinner at the Jekyll Island...

We ate in the Grand Dining Room two nights and enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving brunch on our stay at the hotel. Food was delicious and they had a nice selection of menu choices. Food service was a bit slow but that had to do more with the kitchen than the staff who were very nice - shoutout to Jennifer and... More

As a former Glynn county resident, I always plan weekend trips around being able to have Sunday Brunch in the Grand Dining Room. The food is excellent - everything from the local cheeses, olives and smoked seafood to the hot entrees. And the desserts are the best! Thank you for the outstanding food and service!

We had an issue with the wait staff when instructions were made very clear prior to the meal. No matter how good the food, the wait staff can spoil an evening.

My wife and I are sailing our boat south and this was her first stop at Jekyll island. This is one of those historical jewels but also with incredible food, like the scallops. The lobby bar has one of the best cosmos we've ever had served by Michael. FYI if you r at the marina, the hotel has complementary pick... More

The Thanksgiving Brunch buffet is not just a treat for the palate, it is a true experience. From cheeses and pates, to steamed seafood, to traditional turkey and prime rib with all of the trimmings. And the desserts - Wow! Our waitress, Kathy, was wonderful and it was obvious that the entire staff was prepared and efficient. Looking forward to... More

Grand dining room breakfast is an experience; our granddaughter said the French toast was the best she'd ever had.

The Jekyll Island Hotel Dining Room is grand in every way. The staff is professional and attentive and the food is exceptional. Our family has been coming to the Jekyll Island Hotel Dining Room on Thanksgiving for 27 years. I hope the new owners will be as accommodating as the previous ones.

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at The Grand Dining Room and were very pleased with our Mahi Mahi and JP Morgan crab melt. The food was delicious and pretty views for lunch. My photo is our pool and Harbor view at lunch.

Description
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.
