Dined here with our three children aged 11,8 and 6. Was a wonderful and delicious meal. Fantastic service and diverse menu. Loved the live piano music. He played both classical and current hits- kids had fun making requests. Would highly recommend for a nice dinner out.

Brought a friend from PA here for brunch and it could not have been more delightful. Ambiance was wonderful. Food was plentiful, delicious, and a great value. Service, including a table visit from the lovely manager, was 5 Star all the was. PLUS the piano player was a very nice touch.

It was our 10 year anniversary, and even though it was just coincidence it was so sweet that the piano player played our wedding song. Food was delicious will definitely return.

We very much enjoyed our anniversary dinner. My only qualm would be that the whole dining room was open when we arrived, and yet, all other customers that came in to dine, were sat directly adjacent to our table. I understand servers have different sections, but I am not sure why the sections were on the same side of the dining room with only two servers. Only slightly disrupted our quiet romantic dinner. But overall, the food was fantastic and the servers/manager assisted one another to accommodate every aspect of the meal. We will definitely return.

The hotel and dining room are lovely. The dining room is formal, large and beautiful. The server was informative and friendly but the service was very slow. They had a computer outage, but did not seem to counter the problem. The food, except for the dessert, was not as good as I expect from a AAA 4 diamond restaurant. Salads, soup, and main course were well below expectations.

The Grand Dining Room was amazing. The food was excellent with the best crab bisque we have ever had. We feel that the prices were very reasonable.

William was our server and he went above and beyond to meet our needs. He was at all times polite, prompt and professional.

It is a beautiful venue steeped in southern traditions (I would suggest losing the LED lighting however). Additionally, in respect for all patrons, PLEASE enforce your own dress code in the dining room. I do not need to see young men in shorts and sneakers at dinner.

My wife, son and myself all ordered the Prix Fixe and really felt like this was the way to go if you eat here. When you do the Prix Fixe you get the experience of a five course meal but still have some say in the food options. The meal was amazing and the service was impeccable. If you have the option to request a server ask for Gary. His knowledge of the food and the level of service he provides will ruin your opinions of every other server you’ll ever have. The dinning room is quite other then the awesome piano player and the food was just.. wow! The taste, playing and timing were on point. A five course meal for $49 per person (not including drinks) that was worth every penny. You can also order off their menu for less but why would you.

This is our 4th Sunday Brunch at Jekyll Island Club, and it has always been a great experience for us. We have taken out-of-town friends and family on each occasion, and they all have enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We have recommended the place to our family and friends and some have eaten there also other than with us. It has a very nice dining room, it is elegant, and reasonably priced. We will return again.

It was not an elegant formal dining experience as it was made out to be. More like an overpriced piano bar. Disappointing

This restaurant takes you back to the gilded age as far as atmosphere. Entrees are pleasant. Not large but proportional to the appetizers, soup or salad entrée and dessert.

What a awesome dining experience! The physical setting and it's history allows you, if only superficially, to experience a bygone era of true opulence. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The food was fantastic and very well timed to allow for a relaxed evening with friends. I was surprised, somewhat, that a jacket, or at least a tie, was not required for men in the dining room. We will definitely be returning, and will let other family and friends know of the great experience that awaits them at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel Grand Dining Room !

I did not have any of the food out of the warmers because the serving spoons were all clumped with food on them from earlier use. This should be kept clean or changed out. The omelet freshly made was the best item I enjoyed. Serving staff were all wonderful! This was an ok buffet meal and price was ok if you are not a vegetarian like myself and enjoy the meats served.
Thank you we will dine with you again.

While most everything was great, the veal was so tough that it could not be cut with a knife nor chewed. I would have sent it back, but would not do so with 5 other people with me at the table. It was extremely hot in the dining room, too. Our waiter was wonderful, and we really enjoyed the piano music.

We let them know ahead of time that we were vegans, so we got great meals from Chef Barbie who would always come out to great us. Everyone was very friendly. Hopefully, they will start to put the vegan desserts and entrees on the permanent menu for the many people who want to eat plant-based foods for reasons of environmental responsibility, health, or animal protection.

We visited the Jekyll Island resort for my husbands birthday and dined in the Grand Dining Room forhis birthday celebration. The hostess greeted us with a “happy birthday” wish for my husband, and since it was a special occasion, I had requested a special table and they didn’t disappoint. We were seated at a quiet table by the fireplace. Great ambiance and the food was exceptional. Our server, the hostess, and the manager checked in on us throughout the evening to be certain everything met our expectations. A perfect Evening!
