The server was professional and attentive. Dennis does a great job! The food was fabulous but more importantly the ambiance of Crane cottage is beautiful and memorable ! To dine in an historic Mediterranean villa on the coast of Georgia is great!

Has been our favorite restaurant on Jekyll Island for a number of years. Great food and ambiance in an historic cottage. Unfortunately they informed us that they will be closing as of July 14th and moving to a new site on the wharf. I'm sure that will excellent as well, but the Crane will be missed.

We have dined in the main dining room at the JI Club many times and have always been very impressed. This was our first time at the Courtyard at Crane and to be honest we are a bit disappointed.

Two of the four people in my party had the Filet Mignon and they were improperly cooked. One was completely unacceptable and it had to be replaced. My wife, who is on a low carb diet, asked to substitute mashed potatoes with additional vegetables. Those additional vegetables did not make it to the plate.

Our server seemed to think nothing of making these oversights right with us. And since I was with company I was not going to create a scene.

WE WERE SAD TO LEARN FROM THE WAIT STAFF THAT THE RESTAURANT IS CLOSING BECAUSE THE HOTEL WISHES TO PROMOTE SOME NEWLY OPENED VENUES.

Lovely restaurant, good service, over rated food. Appetizer, fried green tomatoes was good, but not special. The special for the evening, salmon, was over cooked and and the sauce was a non event.

It's always a pleasure to dine at Courtyard at Crane Cottage. I had the shrimp salad which was delish. Hubby had the chicken salad which he enjoyed. Service is excellent and the Courtyard was beautiful. Don't hesitate!

This was our 30th anniversary and third time at the Courtyard at Crane - Jekyll Island Club Hotel. We have had outstanding service and atmosphere every time. The staff genuinely wants to provide exemplary service. Some of the best meals I have had anywhere. This is a first class dining experience in one of the world's most unique locations.

We stopped for lunch while vacationing on Jekyll Island. A friend had recommended it. The surroundings were lovely, the food so tasty, and the service was wonderful. Our waitress' name was Wendy, and she was so friendly and very helpful. Wonderful experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Courtyard at Crane. The ambiance was lovely, romantic and calming....and a gorgeous sunset after dinner. The setting is just lovely this time of year (mid May) with the jasmine in full bloom.

The service was attentive, but not overly so. The servers recommendations were very good.

The squash blossom appetizer was delicious, as was the shrimp and scallops with risotto entree. We took the chocolate dessert to go and it was quite tasty. Prices were reasonable.

We will definitely go again next time we visit Jekyll.

Was a really nice place for my mom's 80th birthday. We could hear there and the food was good, a little different from your everyday menu items. The peanut butter pie was yummy! I loved the old house atmosphere and our table overlooked the intrcoastal. Several folks were dining outside.

Our hostess and server were excellent!
