We had a 7pm reservation and was immediately seated in the dining room. When we requested to sit outside, they were very accommodating. The outside courtyard is beautiful with plenty of seating. They have an extensive wine list. I decided on the German Blufeld Riesling and my sister had an Italiam red wine. Both were delicious. For dinner, I ordered... More

This is such a lovely restaurant in the historic Crane Cottage in the historic district of Jekyll Island. The food and service are just wonderful. While not inexpensive, it is not to be missed if you are staying on Jekyll Island and worth the drive if you are not.

It was like stepping back in time, but a luxurious step back. The room was spacious and lovely and the food at the restaurant was wonderful. Everyone was so helpful and courteous. The only thing that could have made it better would be if they had coffee downstairs in the morning. My husband sleeps later than I do so I... More

We had lunch with our future in-laws and the salmon salad and fish and chips were excellent -- as was the service. Not to mention the lovely location.

Had a late lunch at the Crane Cottage on Christmas Eve and everything was great, especially Gabriella. She has waited on me several times in the past and she always does a great job. I highly recommend the Crane Cottage for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant was recommended by Renee at Three Oaks Farm Equestrian Services. The restaurant is quaint and charming. It had several wood fires burning in the restaurant and it added to the ambiance. The food was very good, as well as the service. I would go back again. The horse drawn carriages could be seen from the restaurant as well... More

In the past two years we have enjoyed Christmas brunch at the Jekyll club, but I overlooked calling early enough to get reservations so we were a little excited that it necessitated our trying a new venue. The food and variety was average for a buffet and even though lots of it, there was nothing spectacular tasting. The overall presentation... More

We had great dinners two nights in a row. Everything was perfect and our server, Gabriella was the best part of it. Great customer service and was very helpful. She gives the phrase, "Above and Beyond" a new meaning!
