The atmosphere was perfect. The food was very expensive. The servers were excellent. The desert tray was scrumptious. $35 for a seafood-pasta dinner was over-priced.

I had lunch here three times on my stay.Twice it was wonderful,third not so much.I ask for a medium well hamburger and it was very overcooked.The homemade vegetable bread will keep you coming back for more though.They also have a fantastic chicken sandwich.

We ate here before a wedding rehearsal. The food was all spectacular, 8 of us were sat immediately and our orders arrived shortly after ordering. Sandwiches were quite large and will fill you up. My wife got the fresh catch fish tacos, a must try! Other foods at the table were the Ruben, the seafood sliders, shrimp pasta, and fish... More

Based on the reviews and past experience, I made reservations for the Crane. The reservation was for 1:00 pm but we were not seated until 1:35. Drink order arrived at 2:15 and the meal at 2:50. The food was poorly prepared and lacking in taste. Tuna over cooked and placed on salad greens with no dressing, the special was a... More

The second and remaining bites not so much. The tuna was over cooked. Specifically asked for rare. It came out almost medium. the salad didn't have much... More

With an ambience that is amazing, and a staff that was attentive to every detail, to a manager that made sure that everyone was happy and taken care of and then to a meal that was gorgeous. It was an exceptional experience.

This is NOT a Marriott Courtyard. Dennis our waiter was exceptional giving us great insight into the Jeykll Island community as well as providing great service. The food quality and presentation were superb. The outdoor courtyard is a perfect setting on a perfect evening for a very romantic dinner.

As soon as I walked in I was hit by the ambience of this place. It is airy and pretty, not too big or small. We were seated right away outside on a perfect day. The food was good, great brunch fare and not too expensive. Would highly recommend to anyone going to Jekyll Island. Plus check out the historic... More
