Love this restaurant. It never disappoints. We travel and stay at the hotel when we want to have a special dining experience.

The Grand Dining Room is a focal point of the resort and we are happy that you dined with us. We agree, everyone should talk a stroll around the hotel and grounds to enjoy the unique history of the hotel.

Our brunch here is a highlight! And, you are correct in mentioning the lawn bowling and bocce-it was a favorite of the original millionaires that built the Jekyll Island Club. Hope to see you again soon.

I think so but I would suggest you call the front desk and ask to be sure. We did not eat lunch there just breakfast and dinner.

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.
