Have eaten here several times. Food and service always excellent. This specific occasion was somewhat spoiled by a VERY loud cocktail party at the front of the dining room during the first half of our dinner.

A lovely location! Always a treat to have Sunday Brunch at Jekyll Island Club. Food is consistently good but could use a little more spark in terms of presentation. Coffee is very good and you can't beat the scenery when you are walking off your meal.

The atmosphere was nice and the waiter was professional and knowledgeable. The food, what I consider most important, was surprisingly lacking. The cheese and charcuterie plate had tasteless bologna and just 2 types of cheese. For the price, I was hoping for a few more types and some prosciutto. The crab cake was actually very good. My wife got the squash ravioli. It was in a pool of broken sauce and after the temperature finally cooled, it was bland (and oily). I got the duck which was a good size portion but the skin was poorly done. I understand that cooking duck is tricky. The skin and fat were rubbery. The atmosphere was nice. There was a fire going and a great pianist. Hoping that the food is a step up when we return in October.

Went for Sunday brunch on a trip to Jekyll Island - were going to do dinner but honestly didn't want to deal with a jacket since we were on a beach trip. The Jekyll Island Club is an elegant but laid back space and it was cool to sit in the dining room where so many famous figures from history had dined. But enough about the space - the food was fantastic. Wide variety of great breakfast foods, cheeses, fruit, brisket and made to order omelette. Great variety of seafood too, and yummy desserts. The only hard part was having to pass up so many good options and narrow my choices. Great service also. Definitely recommend.

I always enjoy coming to the Jekyll Island Club and having dinner in the Grand Dining Room. The food is great, the service is great, and the atmosphere is great.

The dining room is beautiful and we enjoyed the pianist. However, our overall experience was below expectations for a restaurant whose prices exceed $30 for almost all a la carte entrees and whose appetizers exceed $10. We were seated at the front of the restaurant (which was less than half full) near the pianist. Unfortunately, a few minutes after sitting down, we realized we were right by the kitchen whose door swung open frequently. Worse, all the servers often went by our table and the floor shook as a couple of them ran by. This went on throughout the evening. Our server, Wilton, was very pleasant but service was slow and the food was not hot when delivered. My grouper was tough to the point that I wondered if it were another variety of fish. It was my husband’s birthday dinner so we were offered a complimentary dessert. We opted for decaf coffee and appreciated that we were not charged for it. Overall, the dinner was a disappointing experience and hopefully an abberation given all the positive reviews submitted by other diners. If staying at the Jekyll Island Club as we were, eating at the Grand Dining Room is very convenient. But be sure to request a table along the windows toward the back of the dining room to avoid the swinging kitchen door and the waitstaff traffic.

We felt that the Sunday brunch selections did not include enough creative breakfast foods. All food was set up in a very small area near the entrance to the restaurant. The only hot breakfast food was an omelet station , and the wait line was long. This made it crowded and slow when people were trying to get their food. There was an abundance of seafood and cheese and crackers and salad items, but not a lot of other creative entrees. For the price we felt that the value was just not there. We were seated in the sunroom. While not the full Grand Dining Room experience, we did enjoy the venue.

Champagne Sunday Brunch is spectacular. Prime rib roast, local peel and eat shrimp, crab legs, made-to-order omelettes, cheese table, smoked fish table, dessert table, salad table, fruit table and much more.

Service was very slow. Friendly but slow. Escargot came out w 5 pieces not 6 and was slightly burnt. Salad that said to be made with beets, the beets were so microscopic we forgot they were supposed to be there. Flounder was not bad. The woman serving water and bringing lemon was very nice.

The fillet was excellent! Best I have ever had! One of the servers was definitely not happy to be there. Other than that was a great dining experience.

We enjoyed having brunch in the dining room. It was nice to actually dine leisurely with the noise level quiet enough to converse. The live entertainment added a pleasant touch. It has been years since our last experience with true dining and plan to be back often.

Restaurant was busy for the number of waiters, but not full. Service was very good, but less attentive than on other occasions there. Wonderful atmosphere.

Atmosphere is always excellent. Food is outstanding, however my medium rare filet arrived medium. Service was great, but had to ask for things that should be replenished automatically( bread, water). Always a great experience at The Grand Dining Room.

While the service was excellent, the salmon I had needed a sauce to make it more tasty. My husband enjoyed the lamb chops , and they were well prepared. The decorations and cozy atmosphere in a fairly large room were welcoming and the music was relaxing. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate to make views as scenic as they were meant to be.
