We made reservations for both the tea & brunch. The tea is served daily from 4-5pm off the Grand Dining Room in the Riverview Lounge. The room is so quaint with large windows, a fireplace & beautiful architectural details. A perfect elegant setting for Victorian Tea. We started with a very good glass of Jekyll Island Private Label Champagne not... More

Although the Grand Dining Room has a formal appearance, once seated it somehow becomes relaxed. Menu choices are plentiful including seafood, beef and chicken. We found the food to be of excellent quality and very well presented. Service was very good and a piano playing in the background was a welcome addition to the overall dining experience. This is fine... More

We love your description of the appearance seeming formal but you still make you feel relaxed and we agree that the pianist does set a mood. Glad it was a great experience. More

The Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is always our go-to choice for family celebrations and special events. (It's also nice to go for no special reason at all, other than to enjoy a nice relaxing environment.) The food is wonderful, the service is always top notch, and the setting is elegant, calm & relaxing. We had... More

Dinner was delicious and atmosphere lovely but the children were very disappointed when they tried to order dessert. It was about 7:30PM on Saturday night and we were told that they had run out of the chocolate sea turtles. How is that possible that early on a Saturday. They always look forward to the sea turtle dessert.

Those chocolate sea turtle desserts are popular!! I am so sorry we ran out and your children were not able to have them. We would love to have the kids back so we can make sure they get one next time. Can you call the hotel and ask for the Director of Marketing? 800-535-9547 More

When you go to the Grand Dining Room for dinner expect to be treated like a grand person. The service and food is very good!! It does come with a bigger price but is worth the experience. The breakfast is also very good. Eggs Benedict are wonderful!

The atmosphere was awesome with redfish meal to die for. Even better was our waitress, Robyn. I have never been served better anywhere. Be sure to book your reservations with Robyn. I assure you, you will be treated with royalty with Robyn as your waitress.

We made a terrible mistake and had New Year's Eve dinner here. For $160.00 per person before alcohol you expect a lot more than uncooked risotto and a dessert plate that looked like leftovers. The filet was cooked very well and was tasty but in no way rates $160.00. The dessert plate was baklava, cheesecake bite, and a small chocolate.... More

Description
The Jekyll Island Club Hotel Grand Dining Room continues to be the scene of social gatherings and gourmet experiences. Beautifully restored in the Victorian mode, the room is dominated by Ionic columns and gleaming white woodwork. Three handsome fireplaces, complete with intricately carved mantle pieces and marble surrounds, add warmth and cheer on a winter’s day. The lawns and the river can be seen through expansive windows, and the first blossoms of crepe myrtle and magnolia trees color the landscape in early spring. The glow of candlelight and piano music create an atmosphere of romance and anticipation of the gourmet meal to come. A cause celebre in Southern Georgia dining is the Grand Dining Room’s Sunday brunch, a culinary and visual delight. The last Sunday of most months boasts Sunday Dinner Dance with gourmet dining and ballroom dancing.
