Jekyll Island Club Restaurants
A Delightful Trio Of Settings, Renowned As The Best Jekyll Island Restaurants
Culinary excellence and enjoyment are honored traditions at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. From the turn of the century when the Club welcomed the discerning palets of J.P. Morgan, Rockefeller, Astor, Macy, Vanderbilt and Pulitzer, to today, the Hotel takes pleasure in pleasing guests with inspired cuisine and attentive service.
Refined or relaxed, inside or out, lavish or light. The Hotel invites you to enjoy a trio of dining experiences at the top restaurants in Jekyll Island:
Grand Dining Room
In its ambiance and flavors, the Grand Dining Room is the essential Jekyll Island Club dining experience. While elegant in its stunning Victorian architecture, crisp service and river views, the Grand Dining Room remains a family-friendly retreat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s been awarded 4-Diamonds making it the perfect setting for our legendary Sunday Brunch, elegant Sunday Dinner Dances and Victorian High Tea.

This magnificent Cottage, a short stroll from the main Hotel, welcomes you to casual fine dining where the sense of history is as sensational as the food.
