It was a freezing cold day and I was happy to stay warm next to the fire while we awaited our table we had reserved. Service was very attentive. Did have a very long wait for entrees however. Noticed there was a large party in other room that they were whisking plates of food to. Also noticed that the people... More

Traveled to the island in search of glass balls but took some time enjoy a fabulous lunch at the Courtyard at Crane. Menu included a variety of options that were generous in portion size and fabulous in taste. Paid attention to plate presentation details that added to the dining experience.

What can you do to a salad? Dressing tasted homemade. Accompanying bread was fresh. The waitress was quite attentive. The restaurant is so quiet, I would not talk of anything personal.

We had the opportunity to experience the beautiful location as we attended a friend's wedding there. This is a perfect location for a bride and groom along with all of their guests to enjoy the happiest day of their lives. The Chapel is beautiful and the entire area/grounds are quaint, historic, picturesque and simply gorgeous!

We have eaten at Crane Cottage, the Jekyll Island Club, many times. We have always enjoyed the food and this week was no exception. We both loved the filet mignon and next day I had the blackened Mahi and my husband had the chicken breast. Very good. We had a wonderful waiter as well. A really romantic and enjoyable experience.

I can't think of another room that is so personal and intimate. The fireplace adds such a nice ambience in the cooler months. The food choices are in my opinion better than in the main dining room. It is so intimate that you will find some conversation staying at a table and some across tables, all still at low voice.... More

As a tradition, my wife and I always have lunch in the Jekyll Island Club area. Sometimes we hit the Grand Dining room and sometimes the Courtyard at Crane, we love them both. But, on a nice springlike day, sitting outside in the courtyard is extra special (yes it's nice inside too). The prices are moderate for lunch but the... More
