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.

“A Victorian Christmas Experience”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

On visits to the Southeast Georgia coast, we often stop at the Jekyll Island Club Dining Room for lunch or Sunday brunch. We have never been disappointed! This time was no exception. On our trip home from Florida in early December, we hoped that we would find the hotel decorated in its special Victorian way. We entered a scene of Christmas trees, wreaths and garland reflecting the atmosphere of an earlier time. Our lunch was excellent, well prepared as always and served with the care that is so typical of this restaurant. We left looking forward to our return when we hope for a longer stay.

“Great lunch and wonderful service!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

I was traveling on business and decided to check this place out for lunch. So glad that I did! My server she was wonderful and helped make my decision on what to have so much better. Her recommendations were spot on! I definitely will be back next time in the area.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

We went here the two mornings we were there and it was delicious. We did the buffet - the food tastes great and they have a different "special" menu item each morning. It was ham and cheese wraps one morning and sweet potato puffs the next. The waitress was friendly and accomodating. For instance, they make their eggs with cream cheese and I cannot stand the taste of it. When I inquired about the eggs, the waitress said it would be no problem to have the cook make me some without it. It was a great experience overall and we will definitely come back when we return to Jekyll Island.

Reviewed October 31, 2013

We had a "date-night" here during our vacation on Jeckyll Island. Wow -- everything was perfect - food, service, live music. First class in every way!

“Happy Anniversary”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We made reservations for our Anniversary dinner. They made us feel so special. We had a side room all to ourselves. (very nice)
Excellent food and service and a special treat from the Chef.
There is not a better place to dine on the island.
