Jekyll Island Club Hotel Grand Dining Room Restaurant Review

: What surely must be one of the most romantic dining rooms in the state seemed always to disappoint in the food department. But with the arrival of chef Abigail Hutchinson, the tables have turned. Start off with the signature crab cakes with lemon-peach marmalade or the Georgia Local Farm Salad with greens from Sapelo Farms and Baker Farms. Tender veal cheeks are accompanied by morel demi-glace and smashed and fried fingerling potatoes. Chef Hutchinson does her fish as a nightly special so she’s not hemmed in by what may not be available. Desserts are a downfall; quite ordinary Key lime pie is probably the best of the lot, although the kids will get a kick out of the chocolate turtle. This wine list, like the food, is seriously improved over its predecessors, but we would completely revise the Champagne-sparkling offerings. But the long, intriguing dessert wine list makes up for it somewhat.
