Description: The Courtyard at Crane, Jekyll Island, a less formal dining option, is located in the center courtyard and loggia of the historic Crane Cottage. The cottage, designed in 1917 by Chicago architects Adler and Dangler, was inspired by an Italian Renaissance villa admired by Richard T. Crane Jr., the original owner. Guests are offered the option of dining inside or outside.

We dined here one night. Sit outside and enjoy the courtyard dining experience even if a chilly night. The entrees are very good. Service was excellent!

Had a great lunch here last week. Charming setting and exceptionally friendly staff. We had the Lamb Gyro and Shrimp/Artichoke Pasta, as well as the chicken salad within our group. All were very good. The bread to start the meal was simply to die for. the kids in our group could have eaten the entire loaf. the ONLY complain i have is that the kids ordered mac and cheese and it was clearly easy mac (for 7 bucks)

We wanted a light lunch while on Jekyll Island so chose the Courtyard at Crane which is in the historic in the Crane Cottage. We had the feel of stepping back in time to a gentler and laidback time.

The menu was excellent, and we had the shrimp/crab salad on croissant and the catch of the day which was fresh fish cakes. Both were outstanding! The portions were just right for lunch.

The server was very attentive and well trained.

The desert tray unfortunately did not offer anything unusual or (to us) exciting to choose from.

This an excellent casual place to have lunch.

We ate lunch here while day tripping on the island. The courtyard is beautiful and relaxing. My husband had the shrimp tacos and I had the salmon kabobs - both were outstanding and the portions are just right. They served a loaf of sundried tomato bread fresh out of the oven on the side that was delicious. The food prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend!!!

I love in Northeast Georgia and have a home on Jekyll Island. Whenever we go to the island we make time to eat lunch at Crane. The setting is beautiful, the atmosphere is perfect, and the food is top-notch. Today Gabriella from Hungary was our server, and she was a sweetheart! Very friendly and personable. Some of our favorite menu items are the Salmon BLT, the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich, the Reuben, and the Grilled Chicken Sandwich. The Pasta Salad, with feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes and tri-colored pasta is AWESOME! A trip to Jekyll is not complete without lunch at Crane!
