Diner Reviews
  • "This was my first trip to the Jekyll Island Club. The Grand Dining Room is just beautiful and has so much history to it. My daughter and I felt like we were back in time when the elite stayed there. The Ladies and Gentlemen who work in the dining room were all very pleasant and engaging. Their uniforms fit the motif of the era. Our dinner was prepared to our liking and the service was superb. Looking forward to going back in October for my daughter's wedding."

  • "My husband, son (10) and I dined in the Grand Dining Room. The evening did not disappoint! We had been looking forward to going back for dinner after first going a couple of years ago. The food was fantastic, as was the service. You cannot ask for a more beautiful and elegant spot. Highly recommend the escargot and the seafood risotto. Be sure to save room for dessert. We'll be back!"

  • "We stayed at the Jekyll Club and dined for dinner during our stay. Beautiful dining room decorated with style and character. We enjoyed a delicious dinner special that was offered including filet and shrimp. Both were excellent. We were treated to a complimentary dessert that was included in the special and chose an AMAZING macadamia nut pie. Overall an excellent experience."

  • "The Jekyll Island Club's Sunday Dinner Dance is the highlight of our the month. The chef always has exciting entrees to experience while the service is top notch, professional, and very friendly. Dancing to the music played by the very talented Jekyll Island Club Quartet is an escape to an elegant time in the past."

  • "The Grand Dining Room is just that: Grand. A throwback to an era where food, service and ambiance came together for a great dining experience. On top of a wonderful meal and outstanding service (thank you, Jed) in beautiful surroundings, there is a pianist. That's really hard to believe nowadays. We ate there this past Saturday and Sunday and if we were still on Jekyll Island today, we'd eat there again. Thank you to the entire staff who make dining there a real pleasure."

  • "The brunch was like so many. Very good cold items, poor hot items. The brunch come with one glass of Champagne. extra glass is $7. The entire bottle of the Champagne (sparking wine) costs the restaurant less then $7 a bottle. If you in area it is OK for brunch, but not a great brunch."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 24th anniversary here Saturday night. It was our first time here. We had 8:00 pm reservations, so it was not a full dining room. Therefore, it was a calm atmosphere and we could hear the live piano player across the room. Jed was our server and he made us feel right at home. He was very personable. He explained the menu very clearly and he was very detail oriented. My wife had the marinated chicken and I had the fresh catch. Both were cooked perfectly and delicious. The highlight of the night was the chocolate mousse turtle for dessert! It was delicious, creative and a great presentation! All in all, the night was fantastic! Thanks to everyone who made our night special!"

  • "I was recently treated to a Mother's Day dinner in the Grand Dining Room. The setting was beautiful - table linens, candlelight, and a small arrangement of roses on each table. Service was friendly and attentive. Cocktails were well-made. Nice wine list. Salad and entree - attractive presentation, nice proportions, and delicious. The same held true for dessert. A truly pleasant experience. "

  • "Foods were very good and plenty of choices. You don't have enough room to taste everything. The cold boiled shrimp were excellent. The only thing I did not care for were the desserts. Chocolate pineapple upside down.....no, strawberry mouse....no, however the key lime and pecan pie were good, but as I said your so full you don't have a lot of room for dessert. Also, they suggested my husband bring a sport coat for brunch, so we schlepped a coat all the way from Maryland and several stops along the way, and people were dressed in shorts and tshirt......wish I had known business casual would be fine."

  • "Stayed in the Hotel over 20 years ago. Wanted to go back. Ate in the Dining Room then too. At this time, our meal was wonderful. Best steak in a long time. But it took too long. We were there for a little over 2 hours. Other guest were seated after and left before us. Waiter was very courteous and the dining room was not crowded- maybe 30% full. But after our meal was served, we hardly saw him. If we want to linger over dinner, that is our choice and should be made after the meal is paid for. "

  • "I understand the building originated in 1886 ( it says it on the plates ), but the dining room and entite hotel in general are SO DARK. I am a person who enjoys natural light or good ambient light. The room has these heavy plantation shutters on and they were all closed giving the room a dark depressing atmosphere. REMOVE THE SHUTTERS THEY ARE NOT NEEDED. The food was just OK and the service was great to start, then after I received my entree we couldn't find the waiter for 25 minutes. I almost walked out and let him find me to pay the bill. I should not have to beg to pay. "

  • "Our experience was great from start to finish and the food was outstanding. Our waiter was not as attentive as he should have been, i.e. refilling wine glasses, clearing the table, but otherwise it was very good experience."

  • "The Grand Dining Room is beautiful and is full of history, even if the details of some of the history are lost. It appears to be treated with considerable respect by the serving staff. My wife and I try to eat there at least once every time we visit Jekyll Island. In comparison with the prices we would pay for anywhere compatible in the UK, it is very good value for money. This is truly a gem. Oh, and the food is really very good."

  • "Dining is certainly Grand in the Grand Dining Room We dined two nights in a row at the Grand Dining Room. Both meals were outstanding! Between the two nights we had a fair sampling of the menu. The appetizers were exceptional. The salads were fresh with locally sourced ingredients, and wonderful. The Shrimp and Grits entree certainly deserves the award it won. The Duck Breast was delightful and well prepared and presented, as was the Mixed Grill. The Grilled Angus Ribeye was exceptional. The deserts were delightful especially the molded Sea Turtle Mousse. The service was impeccable with everything done properly as it should be in a fine dining room. We also had as excellent breakfast one morning."

  • "Dining in the "shadow" of the millionaires who built the Jekyll Island Club was a rare treat. The ambiance and history of Jekyll Island looms large over the entire experience. The selection and quality of the brunch was as good as any we've had anywhere. Topped off by a complimentary glass of excellent champagne, it was the complete experience. We look forward to repeating our visit again next year."

  • "We booked the Jekyll Island club for Sunday Brunch and for $29 its a fair price considering the location, food and ambience. It is definetly a step back to a time when dining was more formal, my wife commented that she felt she was eating on the Titanic. There was something for everyone on the buffet. The homemade soup was actually a stand out amongst all the dishes. Best thing to do afterwards is to walk the grounds an learn about the history of the hotel and surrounding buildings."

  • "Visited the Grand Dining Room for 43 Anniversary celebration. I selected surf & turf and wife had seafood risotto. Surf & Turf combination of cheese plate, salad or soup, entrée and desert is too much for one person to consume. Let wife have cheese plate as appetizer and we shared a desert. Have lived in the area for 6 years and this is the first time we ate at the Grand Dining Room. It won't be the last."

  • "Stated with pumpkin bisque wich was fresh but too thick & not salted enough. We had lamb (slightly too much on well done side but delicious & subtle flavor!). We also had catch of the which was crusted Halibut & superb! We didn't have room for dessert & had tea/coffee instead. We would have enjoyed a small plate of cookies or chocolates to finish the meal. The live piano music provided very romantic ambiance for our dinner. Service was very attentive & excellent!"
