Need updated reviews for rehearsal dinner location

Our son is getting married next spring on Jekyll Island, and we're looking for a nice place for the rehearsal dinner. All of the reviews on this forum are several years old, so I'd really appreciate some updates--we all know that restaurants can get better or worse!

We need a spot with a private room (Latitude 31 has that but some reviews have said that the customer service was rude/unprofessional) and would like to be able to do a slide show. There will be about 15 people, maybe up to 30.

I will call Latitude 31 and the Driftwood Bistro because they seem to have the best reviews but would appreciate your input if you've hosted/attended a rehearsal dinner on Jekyll Island recently. Thanks a lot!

When you call Latitude, ask to speak with the manager Teresa. They do catering and know how to take care of groups. And you can't beat the setting!

Have you checked Courtyard at Crane's? It is such a lovely setting for weddings and like events. The setting can't be beat. Also check with the Jekyll Island Club because they have private rooms and have a great kitchen. I have eaten both brunch and dinner there several times and have had only good meals.

Ditto on Courtyard at Crane. It's a wonderful place for a dinner.

The Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is another good bet. And the Jekyll Island Club Hotel has several rooms where dinners can be catered. They also operate the Pavilion off Beachview Drive, across from Great Dunes Golf Course. It's open-air, but might be a good venue for a spring reception.

Jekyll Island is undergoing revitalization of their convention center, and a temporary center is being set up in the Historic District. The old Morgan Indoor Tennis Court has been renovated to serve as temporary convention center quarters, and the JIA is adding other temporary facilities there. You might check with them, see what they have to offer.

Kindest regards,

Rick
