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.

I went for for an afternoon High tea which is rarely offered these days. It was held in the Grand Dining Room for $15. The layout was quite nice. There were several teas to choose from varying from loose leaf, to tea bags as well as different flavors. I had different blends that were great and fresh. Each person had there own tea pot with hot water inside to make your own tea. Scones were brought to each table and there were the proper accoutrements such as jams and jellies to go along with it. In addition, there was a table of lovely cucumber sandwiches desserts to munch on for an hour or so. The staff was very helpful and an overall great experience.

High Tea is offered in the Grand Dining Room every afternoon. Price is $15. There were four different kinds of bite size sandwiches and about ten different types of desserts. The tea lasts for only an hour but you can eat all you want in that time. There were many different flavors of tea in tea bags and loose tea. The room was lovely and everything was served on fine china.

If there is one single place to eat on Jekyll Island that you should not miss, this is it. The restaurant is elegant, the service outstanding and the food delicious. We really look forward to returning next year.

This restaurant dates back to the 1880's, when the richest millionaires in the North East lived there in the winter. The service is excellent, white starched table cloths, perfectly dressed wait staff, and very reasonable prices. Lunch is a great deal, and dinner is a little pricey, but wonderful. I have been there for Xmas, and New Year's eve dinners, when the food was beautifully prepared and tasted divine. The decor has not changed in 130 years. Elegant and beautiful.
