Been to this restaurant twice during trips to Jekyll. Once when it first opened (as the formerly named Corsair) and again last weekend. The first visit, we sat at a table and hoped for a traditional full-service white tablecloth meal. It was unremarkable at best. Gave it another shot on Shrimp & Grits weekend. Made reservations but decided to share apps at the bar instead. The service is great. The restaurant is cozy and decorated so nicely - beachy, Cape Cod, casual. There is only one Pinot Noir by the glass, which is what we had. We enjoyed the pimento cheese app - excellent home-made naan. Shared the lobster rolls which are OVERLY mayo'd. They are stuffed with lobster and the chefs should let the lobster sing with just a tablespoon of mayo and not mixed up like a salad. The homemade chips are yummy. The pizza is awful. I don't know how you mess up pizza in a wood-fired oven but I think the formula for crap pizza is - premade lame dough, canned tomato sauce, low-quality mozz and even lower quality pepperoni. I took one bite and said it reminded me of pizza you get at the skating rink. Not a compliment. The bar has a really nice table shuffleboard. Unfortunately, the restaurant doubles as the hotel lobby. On this particular evening, some rowdy children had taken to the shuffleboard table and for 30-45 minutes proceeded to slam the metal balls together and scream and laugh. Their parents nowhere to be found. I felt bad for the couple sat in the table next to this nightmare, their date completely ruined by these rowdy hotel guests. I love the shuffleboard and we've played it on our visits and also enjoyed sitting in the lobby w/ the fireplace. But keep children out of the bar and off the beautiful wooden shuffleboard table that's clearly for adults. We ended our dinner with the berry crumble for dessert. All the components of an amazing dessert were there - berries, sauce, crumble and vanilla ice cream. But it was served lukewarm and the components were not merried.

Food & ambiance was REALLY good. One problem: one persons meal came 45 mins after the others (mixup). They did not charge for the late one! The seafood tower was amazing.
Our waiter introduced himself, then left after we ordered & another took over-seemed like he had a lot to take care of.
Very nice & apologetic about the delay.
They need to get some foot rests on the higher dining table chairs. It was hard to dangle for 2 hours.
We’ll go back there, but sit at a regular table next time.

My daughter and I are staying at the beach club and celebrating being together with old friends from CT and Sweden. It was a perfectly lovely dinner. The chef made fried green tomatoes special for me to share this Southern delicacy with our friends. They were delicious!

We, a family of four, sat outside for this dining experience. The wait staff was good overall and all were very welcoming. My wife had the daily special fish and I had the steak. For and $85 filet mignon steak, the cut of meat was not very good. I could only eat half of it. The unusual part was that the waitress never asked if I liked it or not...

This was a truly excellent dining experience. A close friend of mine and I were treating another to a late dinner after finally arriving on the island. Our host was able to quickly take our cards and make sure the check was taken care of correctly. We were all seated inside the screened-in patio section outside with background music, ceiling fans, a view of the pool, and sounds of the ocean. Our server was kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. Appetizers were fresh and shareable. Some of the small plates are in fact not so small after all! My entree was crisp and perfectly cooked. After two bottles of wine, my only complaint was that my friends were feeling too full to split a dessert. Perhaps this is just the standard on Jekyll Island, but we felt taken care of. Thank you, Eight Oceans!

This restaurant clearly is not interested in offering customer value. It also is not offering quality food. My rib eye was low grade. My 2 drinks you tried to charge me $28 for. The waiter did a great job. I would not visit this restaurant again.

This was our last stop on a quick weekend trip in jekyll as a “babymoon”. This was a random find due to some internet searching, and it did not disappoint. Great drinks, tasty apps, main dishes were tasty and the desert and very nice cherry on top. The wait staff were very attentive and timely. I would recommend.

By far the nicest place to eat on the island. The food was amazing, yet the setting was still a very laid back beachy kind of vibe.

I went for a business dinner, and it was easily the best food and atmosphere of any of the places I ate alt all week.

Located in the wonderful boutique Jekyll Beach Club Hotel, the venue is great. Overlooking pool and beach. The service for dinner was mediocre and took forever. Several ordered items were forgotten dragging out the dinner. The breakfast next morning however, was great. Service was great and the food was delicious. It's a very comfortable environment- overstuffed sofas, live music, and fireplace.

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.

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!
