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.

We recently stayed at the JIC and tried the five-course taste of history from the menu.
Every course was beautifully presented and well prepared.
The ambiance of the room cannot be topped with the welcoming fire and nice piano music. Service was correct yet friendly.
A wonderful experience

We ate in the Grand Dining Room a few times during our staff at Jekyll Island. The dinner was fantastic - I had most delicious duck breast with quinoa.

The Grand Dining Room of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is a formal dining experience. A coat is required at dinner. The dining room is a spectacular space decorated from an earlier era, in keeping with the theme of the hotel. The menu is excellent and the food is very good. The white coated servers are attentive, friendly, and capable. We were there on Saturday and there was someone playing tunes on the big grand piano in the restaurant foyer.
This is a place for a special occasion. My wife and I spent over two hours having dinner. We never felt neglected, and weren't rushed. If you want t quick dinner this probably not the place for you. It's a great place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday.

We had Christmas brunch there this past Christmas and the service was not what I expected. The food was at best, just average, although there was a lot of it. Side dishes were uninspired and bland, meats were acceptable. Crablegs were gray and rubbery, although there was a mountain of them. Dried out cheese, limited dessert, for the money, save it and go to the Waffle House. Had a reservation for 12:45 and waited for 30 minutes...not impressed! Seated right next to a buffet table and in the waiter's path, definitely NOT worth the $400.00 I shelled out!!!

Went there for a Red Hatters luncheon. The service and the food and the view was very nice.
