Had a great cocktail here called a Jekyll Peach, and a decent wood-fire-oven-cooked mushroom & pesto pizza. Service was good, but not as attentive as we'd have liked. It's a good choice on Jekyll where there are not that many restaurants. I downrate the atmosphere here because the view looks out on the hotel pool, not the ocean, which we'd have liked a lot more.
Delicious food & great service! A real highlight of our vacation. I enjoyed an excellent nonalcoholic cocktail, a rare treat.
Kid-friendliness: Restaurant accommodated our kid food requests with speed & grace!
Hit or miss depending who is working
Had dinner here with my wife and three small boys. Ambience was beautiful. Love the dimmed setting with lit candles everywhere. The atmosphere was perfect. Food was delicious and flavorful. Server was very nice and food came out lightening fast. Bar tender came out and described the cocktail he made. Kids loved their dinner. Thank you we will be back!
This was a surprise...my wife had the New York strip (best strip I have ever had... tender and tasty). I had the special, which was a white fish over pureed mushrooms... went out on a limb with that choice, but I was pleasantly surprised. Service was great and I had the beer flight for drinks...so that was fun to try while waiting for our food. Views are ok... typical Jekyll Island view of overgrown dunes. Over good experience and would be a top choice for dinner on Jekyll.
Food is good but expensive - like most things on Jekyll Island.
Cute hotel lobby restaurant but service is kind of terrible and the food for the price is subpar. We were kind of ignored a fair amount. No one asked if we wanted separate checks and when we asked it was obviously an inconvenience and then it didn’t actually even happen. Bottomless mimosas were a joke since no one ever asked if I wanted more - I had to get up and ask the bartender for help. The shrimp and grits were not good… the menu didn’t say there was sausage and peppers in them but there was and they didn’t taste very good. I obviously wasn’t eating them but no one asked if they could get me something else etc. for the price the service was just not great and the food was not anywhere close to what we expected. We won’t be back.
TLDR; have drinks here, but go to Reid's Apothecary for brunch. I love the ambiance of this restaurant and the cocktails (5⭐) are always amazing. Our beautiful server (Jody-Kay) was friendly and attentive. She checked on us repeatedly. The new brunch menu is really disappointing, though. The old menu was interesting with fantastic loaded grits, a cathead biscuit sandwich, chicken and waffles, or french toast. From the boring new menu, I opted for the avocado toast with salmon. It was pricey for what I got. The thinly spread avocado on my one slice of toast was under seasoned and looked old, like the avocado had been smashed earlier in the day and allowed to turn brown. The extra $8 for two thin slices of salmon was excessive. Reid's Apothecary is similar in price but with much better portions and food quality. Folks also should be told that the sparkling water is $8 per bottle, but it was better than trying to drink the marsh-flavored tap water.
Brunch was really solid! Well prepared & presented. Eggs Benedict was different, but in a good way. Rate it 9/10. Asked for potatoes well done, came out just like that. Definitely fresh prepared, not processed.
Service pacing was off, very nice and hospitable, just need training on timing of approaching table throughout service.
