Dinner is a grand affair here, in the historic dining room once populated during the Gilded Age with the American barons and their ladies. My husband ordered the crab soup, which arrived deconstructed--a bowl of ingredients with rich, creamy soup poured over them...yum. He also...More

There was a lot wait between ordering our lunch and being served. The food was good but not exceptional. You're paying for ambiance not quality.

We do ask that gentlemen wear a collared shirt. No jeans or hats or shorts at dinner.

I think so but I would suggest you call the front desk and ask to be sure. We did not eat lunch there just breakfast and dinner.

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.
