I was delighted to find a vegetarian dish on the menu. And it was excellent. It was a gourmet tofu vegetable pie. The best one I've ever had. Everything was excellent--food, service, wine, ambience. Highly recommended.

Relaxing & Beautiful
We made a special stop just to have
Lunch at the Grand Dining Room at The
Beautiful Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
We were on our way home from a
Weekend in Florida.
We are previous guests of the hotel
And it's always relaxing to visit!
One of our favorites!

Southern Hospitality at Its Best!
The service was excellent as was the food. One member of our party dropped an expensive laser pointer and our server found it after we had left. They called us to let us know they had it and we could pick it up at our convenience. Nice to know there are honest people in the world and a restaurant will go out of it's way for the customer even after the bill has been paid.
If you go, save room for dessert. The chocolate turtle was AMAZING!

a MUST around JAX/Brunswick
I have been flying in for the Jekyll Island Club Hotel Brunch several times, and it is a GREAT experience, each time anew. And a stable one, over the three years that I know it.
Congratulations to all staff: cuisine, reception, service, management! And last not least the piano player(s) (they are probably changing).

We were there for our 25th
We were there for our 25th Anniversary. My only complaint is that our table was a two top located right next to a column. I looked around and there were several 4 top tables with couples sitting at them and I think we should have been afforded the same courtesy. Not only that but with all the open tables why seat people right on top of each other. Otherwise, our experience was great.

We came to the Club Hotel for a special family dinner. The hostess greeted us professionally and warmly. Our server, Jeb, was outstanding; the service and food were flawless. The background piano music was pleasant, not too loud.Thank you for a wonderful memory.

5 Star Perfection!
We enjoyed our 4th dining experience at the Grand Dining room recently & will most definitely return! I can't say enough good things about this restaurant! The Ambiance is romantic, splendid, classic - a return to a finer, gilded age. Breakfast was superb, the Sunday brunch was absolutely the best brunch that I can remember attending in over 20 years! The tables were perfectly appointed & every classic dish that one would expect in a "real" brunch was on display & more.
We so appreciated the grand effort of their pastry chef & staff to create the most gorgeous & delicious anniversary cake in the world & our most recent dining experience was topped off by the most creative dark chocolate mousse sea turtle dessert! I will never forget it!

Wonderful place. The food
Wonderful place. The food was delicious - the rack of lamb was the best ever and my filet mignon was delicious and I could cut it with a table knife. The atmosphere was great and the wait staff were excellent. It reminded us of being on a cruise.

It was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Our waitress Zoe was excellent .The piano music was a lovely touch.

Every time we visit St. Simons Island, we have Sunday brunch in the Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Club. We love the good food, the live piano music, and the historic, lovely ambiance. We miss the days when you had to "dress for dinner," but it still was very nice. We will come again next time.
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I are fans of old historic properties and this certainly fits the bill. The grounds and building evoke thoughts of the gilded age. Men are asked to wear jackets at dinner but it's not stuffy. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive, as well as being quite honest when asked about certain dishes—we appreciate that. We shared an appetizer of a squash blossom stuffed with crab and cream cheese, which was then batter dipped and deep fried (folks down south do seem to love fried food). We both had beef tenderloin, mine medium rare and my wife’s medium well. The food was very good to excellent and prepared exactly the way we asked. We will certainly return here next time we're in the area.

It's the bomb
Wonderful dining experience. Great food, great service, reasonably priced. A brunch to be remembered!

A Great Experience for our 13th
Besides the food and the ambiance,we were impressed by the thoughtfulness of the staff. When I made the original online reservation, I mentioned that it was our 13th Anniversary. Both the hostess and our waiter acknowledged it when we entered and after we were seated.
Our server, Jed, was outstanding.. He was a huge part of a successful dining experience and an education in formal dining as well. He was, without a doubt, the best server we ever had.

Great old world hotel with great food. Only wish there was more breakfast items.

Remembering Times Past
During the seasons of 1903/04, my Grandmother was a waitress in the Club House dining room. We had a place set for her at our table. It was great to reminisce, read her diary, and look at her pictures. It was a very special lunch for us and the staff was very accommodating. The food and wine were excellent.
Many thanks for making our lunch truly special.

Father's Day at Jekyll island club
The dining room at Jekyll was lovely, like going back in time. The tables were lovely, it is an elegant setting and the food was outstanding. The wait staff were dressed in period uniforms and the service reminded me of a more genteel time. Everyone was attentive but it was not overdone. It was a wonderful experience.

A Beautiful Evening
We celebrated our anniversary here and what a perfect evening! The food, ambiance and service were all perfect and accompanied by a wonderful piano player. We will absolutely return on our next trip to Jekyll Island.

Great Dinning Experience
My wife and myself enjoyed spending our anniversary evening dinning here. The service was great and so was our server, however reading from a notebook was a little unprofessional. We both ordered the Filet Mignon and it was very good. Enjoyed the complementary champagne. I very satisfying dinning experience.

A great historic dining experience
The Grand Dining at The jekyll Island Club offers a great experience at the historic hotel. The food was excellent! The only reason we did not rate service a 5 was the lady serving the bread seemed to ignore our area and was not attentive. Our server was excellent she noticed and promptly took care of it. Our server was excellent! We will go back to the The Grand Dining Room.

Excellent food and historic setting
Jekyll Club Hotel offers excellent food, superb service, and unforgettable setting. The historic ambience of the location provides the guest with a trip back in time to an age of elegance! Perfect for romantics. They also do a great job accommodating gluten free allergy needs.

Best restaurant in the area
Had high expectation about this restaurant because it is part of Jekyll Island Club Hotel, it is supposed to be good, right? But our experience went above beyond our expectation. The service from a great gentleman named Gary was professional, precise and really friendly that we felt the service alone is part of our enjoyment. The menu has great choices that we felt like we should come here several more times to complete the gourmet adventure here. High recommendation for this restaurant.

Grand at the Grand
The main dinning facility at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel makes you feel like you've gone back 100+ years in time! The Victorian splendor of the room with table settings to match lets you know your on for a special evening. The good doesn't disappoint. A good variety of dishes all with a certain Southern style to them await you. My wife and I enjoyed our meal tremendously.

Grand Dining Room at Jekyll
We loved our dinner experience. The service was exceptional, attentive without hovering. Our waiter, Jed, was knowledgeable about the various dishes, their ingredients and method of preparation. The tables are well-spaced. Several menu items are creative. The wine list is ample but not overwhelming. Prior to our meal we enjoyed a cocktail at the Lobby Bar, outside the dining room. The bartender, Kelly, makes a 'solid' drink and was quite personable without being too friendly. We hope to return to the restaurant again.

It's like going back in time. I felt like old money! Her the award winning shrimp and grits and a bottle of Jekyll island reserve.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
knows how to do this right. The whole place has plenty of class and they do the small things that a lot of good places don't do from the kind of butter and bread to the quality of the plates and silverware and napkins.

Sumptious meal, mavelous setting
One of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The food, service and ambience were absolutely remarkable. We both had the delectable she crab soup and the filet, cooked to perfection for both of us. Cannot wait to go back!

Excellent Sunday Brunch
Our group of friends decided to make the Jekyll Island Club a destination for brunch. Most of us hadn't been there before. We had high expectations and they were all surpassed. Food was delicious and displayed beautifully. Service was top notch and friendly. Very relaxed atmosphere in such an elegant room. Piano music was lovely. Highly recommend this to everyone. We intend to go back.

Dining at Jekyll Island
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.

Almost as Good as Expected
My wife and I were both looking forward to an exceptional meal in the Grand Dining Room and it was, overall, very good. The appetizer we shared was terrific, as was the dessert. In between, my entrée was good, while my wife's pork tenderloin was tough enough that she asked for a steak knife. The management was appropriately apologetic and adjusted the bill in response to our disappointment.
We would certainly be willing to return for another meal as we enjoyed the ambiance very much.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love the Grand Dining Hall at the Jekyll Island Club! The ambiance is amazing... It's as though you've stepped back in time. Fresh flowers on gas-lamp lit tables, gorgeous arrangements at the entry, and wonderful piano music set the tone for a terrific experience. The service is superb, the menu selections are magnificent, and the food is out of this world. From the award-winning shrimp and grits to the veal Oscar, the options are divine. We can't wait to return!!

Grand Dining Room at Jekyll Club
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.

A special place

Definitely a wonderful dining experience! Service was impeccable (we were treated like royalty!); food was excellent; ambiance was lovely (piano playing in the background). Would highly recommend the Grand Dining Room to celebrate a milestone or life's special event.
