Upon entering the Grand Dining Room, you are immediately impressed by the historic architecture and decor. For us, that was exactly where we stopped being impressed. The jumbo sea scallops were anything but jumbo and the French onion soup was nothing but broth. There was...More

If you’re staying on Jekyll Island, treat yourself to a night of elegance, attentive service, fine dining accompanied by piano tunes in the background. The prix fixe dinner with wine pairings was perfect from start to finish. The evening was magical.

Had the price fix 4 course with fillet mignon as my main course. Every course was to perfection. I don’t think the Vanderbilt’s, Rockefeller’s, or Gould’s had it any better in their time staying here. They are long gone but the tradition lives on.

There is not a dress code per se for breakfast. We prefer no hats or cut offs and for the gentlemen to have sleeves on their shirts. Also no bathing suits. This Thursday, 8/23 we will have a buffet.
