On vacation with the family looking for a nicer dinner spot. Found the Courtyard at the Jekyll Island Historic complex. If the weather permits, recommend asking for a table outside in the courtyard vs. inside. Really felt like we were in Italy with the beautiful...More

7 of us had a great meal I had shrimp and scallops, which were wonderfully done. Very good service. Great atmosphere. Rainy evening forced us to eat inside - would like to try the outdoor seating.

Courtyard at Crane is a smaller venue than the main dining room. Historic setting. The Crane "cottage" felt like what must have been a very elegant home. Many furnishings are likely original. The food was inventive and tasty. The service was adequate although I felt...More

We had a lovely dinner on the veranda overlooking the courtyard. The shrimp, scallop and risotto were outstanding as was the flank steak. Very generous portions, beautiful presentation. House wines are very good quality-a bargain relatively. Excellent service.

We have reservations for a 5:30 dinner on a Sunday. I'm wondering if our four year old and one and a half year old will be out of place. We are not the type of family that lets the kids scream and make a mess, but the toddler can be loud because he's a toddler : )

Would like to make a dinner reservation - celebrating our 45th anniversary! Do we need to decide in advance whether we want indoors or outdoors? It would depend on the weather. I'm inclined to go with indoors, just in case. Is there a dress code? Would like to reserve 7:00 pm for 2 people on Monday, June 13. Can we do that here or do we need to go to a different website?
