On our last night on Jekyll Island we celebrated by coming to this elegant historic restaurant. We shared the Low Country She Crab Soup (a must try) and Artisanal Greens Salad. My husband had to have shrimp and grits once again but these are famous for winning first prize at the Shrimp and Grits Festival. I had the Pan Roasted... More

We enjoyed five-star dining last year and knew we needed to repeat the experience when we visited again this year. The menu is interesting but not intimidating. Every dish was approachable - so much so that we wanted to try one of everything. We eventually chose a shrimp appetizer, which I could have eaten all night. My filet was absolutely... More

We enjoyed a Saturday evening meal here, while staying in the hotel. I enjoyed their shrimp and grits which had just won top honors in the weekend's annual Shrimp and Grits festival in Jekyll. Service was good. Lovely atmosphere. We tried a bottle of the house cabernet, and it was quite good, as well as being the least expensive on... More

Typically, I will skip a buffet. However, this one is very good. They have a large selection of items from French toast, sausage, bacon, eggs, grits, potatoes, cereal, yogurt, biscuits, gravy, juices, milk, and muffins (I am sure I left something out they had). I don't like grits but I liked these. For $16, it was the best value. Service... More

We visited for lunch on a weekday. We were one of the first in the dining room for lunch that day. The lady who seated us knew so much about the hotel and was so nice and friendly. Our server was very attentive. There were four of us for lunch. We all got different things. I ordered the Jekyll Club... More

Each time I've eaten in the Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Inn I've been more than pleased with the service and food.

I had lunch in the small semi-circular windowed room off of the main dinning room overlooking the pool. The room is lovely and light filled. So many choices on the menu and they all sounded wonderful. I finally chose the crab cake appetizer and the goat cheese salad. The crab cakes were wonderful, full of large chunks of crab, no...

For the past 3 years, our visits to Jekyll Island always include enjoying at least one weekday breakfast buffet in the beautiful and historic Jekyll Island Club Hotel Grand Dining Room. Elegant way to start one's day! This trip, besides all the typical breakfast dishes, we were pleased to see the addition of Shrimp and Grits! The regular cheese grits... More

We have been staying at the Jekyll Island Club many times in the last 20+ years. The setting of the hotel and its grand dining room is something we treasure. Not unexpectedly, many things change in so many years. While the quality and presentation of the dinners changed to the better, we would hate to see one of the last... More

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.
