We did not have time for dinner here but did have scrambled eggs. It tastes like they put either a tiny bit of butter or cheese in the scrambled. Delicious eggs. Excellent service in historic Jekyll Island Club.

We ate breakfast and was amazed at such great service. The food was great and no strict dress code. Very beautiful room. I’m sure dinner is wonderful but probably requires a more formal dress.

Answer
Response from BruceW1996 | Property representative |
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.

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.
