We ate at Cosair both nights we stayed at the Ocean Club and it is fantastic. Great varied menu and a wood fired oven. We had the seafood tower both nights!

The seafood at Corsair was outstanding! We ate at the restaurant for lunch and also for dinner. The shrimp from the Raw Bar was perfectly cooked and the cocktail sauce was fantastic. The shrimp cocktail in the evening would be better served if it came out on a bed of ice, as is done at lunch, vs on a plate because some of the shrimp were not chilled. I would skip the pizza as it was not very good, remarkably tasting a bit like a bland frozen pizza. However, the burger and other lunch selections were fresh tasting, well cooked, and full of flavor. The lunch and dinner fish selections, especially the Grouper, were out of this world. Very fresh, perfectly prepared, and bursting with flavor.

As for the service, the wait staff was friendly, but quite slow to come over to take our orders, bring drinks, or check in once the meal was served. This was worse at lunch than at dinner. Considering that the restaurant was never overrun with customers, this seemed as if it could be addressed with management direction and more training.

Overall, we would definitely return and would highly recommend the restaurant.

beautiful setting and nice people but very mediocre food. each meal was average to small size and without distinction. snapper, sea bass, and polenta were fair to bland. Grouper was more flavorful. This would be perfectly acceptable in a chain or low end restaurant, but not in a luxury hotel. the high point was the choice of salad dressings, all of which were good. there is no bread served, although that did not affect our opinion.

Dinner was a relaxing experience. Candlelight atmosphere, attentive service, and cuisine that was creative in both ingredients and presentation. Everyone in our group raved about their entrees and we left the restaurant entirely satisfied.

The wait staff is well trained, polite, and very efficient. Food was well prepared and delicious. My only negative comment is the seafood tower is not much of a tower. For the price, I expected more seafood...in comparison to McCormick and Scmicks.

We enjoyed our meal at the Corsair. The roasted oysters and crab cakes were very good. Unfortunately due to the weather, the doors were not open to the outdoors so I would love to go back when the restaurant opens to the pool area. I think the closed doors contributed to the noise level. Great service!

This was my first time dining there and I found the food to be very good and well worth the price on the menu. The service was great too. My only negative comment is alcoholic beverages. This is not the place to order a glass of wine. It may have been the bartender that evening, but the amount was well under 5 ounces (a Utah pour), but the price wasn’t discounted. I will return as I liked the ambiance and the food/service was extremely satisfying. I will just have a nice glass of wine somewhere else!

This was the worst dining experience of our trip to Jekyll Island. No signage, no visibility, no ambiance, no value.

We have had seafood towers on three continents and this was the worst. Here on coastal Georgia where shrimp and fresh seafood abound we were served the most overpriced and poor quality food we have ever had to pay for. Overpriced and unworthy of anyone's palate or pocketbook.


Jekyll Island doesn't have much to offer but this is at the bottom of the list.

I've never written a review before but this warrants warning others.

Lovely room, but very poor service. Food was average. My husband and I ordered a nice bottle of wine. The waitress brought it to the table already opened, poured 2 glasses and left. She did not pour a small sample to taste first. She came back a few minutes later and set the cork down on the table. She never touched the wine bottle again. We waited a good half hour for our food with nothing on the table to eat. No bread, crackers, anything. After food was brought, waitress never came back to ask how we were doing or if we needed anything. Food was ok, but nothing special. I would not recommend dinner here. We enjoy fine dining, but this was not worth the price. They need to train their servers properly.

Food was ok, but not for the price. Tried to order an after dinner drink- did not have Sambuca; tried for anisette, Uozo, and two other "licorice" cordials and they did not have them. same goes for Drambui and Gran Marnier.

Before dinner Beefeater martini was not beefeater. Tasted too flowery; probably Tangerey or Hendricks.

Expected better!

We found hostess a little bit morose, not a happy smiley person you would expect! Our server was great! Food was ok but unfortunately my husbands yellow tail snapper was raw on one side. Fair play they comped us for it but he’d eaten one half before realizing so we were a bit concerned for his stomach the next day! All in all not too bad!

We ate here twice while on vacation in Jekyll. The service was wonderful, the food was delicious but definitely on the expensive side. Not sure if the value measured up to price but it was the best restaurant on the island as far as flavor and ambience and service. Great variety with healthy and delicious choices. Yummy fresh seafood. Def on the foodie side. Will visit again.

Had an early dinner with a friend here and both of us were pleased with the service and quality of food and drinks. We didn't feel pressure to eat and run, but instead encouraged to relax and enjoy. That was nice! Only complaint was price of the food which likely is due to being on a small island rather than anything else. Order the seafood pizza (really good!) and have a couple drinks.

Our favorite reastarant in Jekyll had been the Crane Cottage. We were so disappointed when they stopped serving lunch there and in the main Club dining room. Food and service at Crane were always 5 star in quality, but more than that it was elegant in a way that reflected another era. Corsair did not compare on either measure. I had a Mahi sandwich. I would have liked it blackened but that option was not available. But more importantly it was served in a bun that did not hold together. My wife’s fish tacos were OK but not great. We were in a group of six and everyone had the same opinion: OK but we would probably not come back.
