The service was very attentive. There were nice menu selections for lunch. Overall the food was delicious but my salmon was a little overcooked. It was called Crab and Potato Encrusted Salmon but came with just a smear of white sauce (pureed crab and potato?)...More

The service was just right - quietly there when needed but never intrusive. A varied menu including lots of seafood (and not fried!); the salmon special was delicious. A lovely setting - we sat at a window table in the round glass space. Nice piano...More

What a lovely place to have dinner! The service, the food and the ambience of this lovely old place was wonderful! The seafood is delicious and not to be missed when on the Georgia coast!

Perfect dining and later breakfast experience for our Anniversary. The meals were superb, the dining room very historic and 100 yr old elegant. My wife almost immediately said we now know where our Daughter's weddings will be held. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Very good piano player in a beautiful old mansion dinning room sets the stage. The food was very tasty and nicely presented. Service was very good. Get their early and walk the grounds and have a drink at the bar just outside the dinning room.

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?

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.
