Grand dining room breakfast is an experience; our granddaughter said the French toast was the best she'd ever had.

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at The Grand Dining Room and were very pleased with our Mahi Mahi and JP Morgan crab melt. The food was delicious and pretty views for lunch. My photo is our pool and Harbor view at lunch.

The menu selections were mouth-watering and we were not disappointed with any of our choices (we enjoyed dinner here two separate nights). There is a piano player which added to the ambiance. Our servers were most attentive and truly understood the menu options/entrees. The dining...More

Dinner was nicely served with the ribeye and swordfish presented well. The ribeye melted in your mouth. The she-crab soup, however, was served cold. Service was very nice and friendly. Breakfast was another matter. First of all, our package was to include breakfast, but the...More

We only had the breakfast buffet (3 times), but it was very good each time. Plenty of the basics, including a wide variety of fruit, fruit juices, and pastries.

We do ask that gentlemen wear a collared shirt. No jeans or hats or shorts at dinner.

I think so but I would suggest you call the front desk and ask to be sure. We did not eat lunch there just breakfast and dinner.

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.
