Diner Reviews
  • "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. "

  • "Good Sunday brunch in a lovely setting at very fair prices. The hotel is an old-fashioned, gracious charmer."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 were traveling up the eastern seaboard and decided to stop at Jekyll Island, so we could try again the wonderful dining at the Jekyll Island Club. Had not been there for 10 yrs.. So glad we did!! Was absolutely wonderful!! Excellent food, great selections, and our waiter could not have been better. Was exactly what we needed after spending many hours on the road. Can hardly wait to return. Will definitely be our place for stopping when traveling to and from florida."

  • "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."

  • "We we're sadly disappointed with the "average" food served given the very interesting menu at the Jekyll island Club Grand Dining Room. The service was excellent and attentive but cannot make up for the somewhat warm main course and the tough veal in the Veal Oscar."

  • "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!"

  • "We had our anniversary dinner there and it was the perfect setting for the occasion. Good wine, attentive servers, marvelous food and great ambiannce. It was a step back to "class dining." Something that has been lost in todays food environment. Try it...ypu'll love it!!"

  • "While the atmosphere was quiet and romantic and the service was excellent, the food was not worth what was charged. I am not a cook but I know I could have managed to make the chicken that was served--not that unique. My husband said his steak was very good. All in all, it's very overpriced. No wonder the restaurant, very beautiful, was almost empty."

  • "The last Sunday of every month, the Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel has a dinner dance with a preselected menu.Selection items vary from month to month. Atmosphere is without peer and the service and food quality is equally excellent. This evening was no exception. Our server, Jedd, was very attentive and offered a wonderful dining experience."
