This is a charming place to grab a small bite while sitting by the pool. Food was better than expected.

I recommend that you eat at the Pool House and have Lexi as your server. The food was awesome, Lexi was attentive, made recommendations and the atmosphere by the pool was relaxing.

I recommend you stop by to see Rachel
And April . They are amazing! They make you feel very welcomed . They lit the fire pit even though I was the only one there on
A cold day . They are setting up for Christmas right now and they do a greater
Job . Definitely worth the trip and be sure to walk past the cottages to see the beautiful huge oak trees . I hope management recognizes these 2 valuable
Employees. Thanks Rachel and April for
A wonderful afternoon! Diane from Florida

Had an appetizer and soda by the pool. Fried green tomatoes were very good. The staff kept bringing me free refills of my soda throughout the time I was by the pool. Great service!

We've been to Jekyll Island Club numerous times and could never understand why there wasn't a better restaurant by the pool. You're at the pool so you should be able to have a decent meal while there relaxing or watching your kids. And shouldn't someone be able to bring you a drink by the pool? NOW this can all happen! The Pool House has been refurbished and their menu redone. Compared to all the other restaurants on Jekyll Island, this restaurant rates a 5. We ate there several times and the food was always good. The food on Jekyll Island (overall, not JIC) is known for being pretty unhealthy-fried, limited options, lots of fries. But at the Pool House, you can get fresh salads (with more than just iceberg lettuce), child-friendly options, and great pizzas and sandwiches. We had the fried green tomato caprese, the crab cakes, crab dip, shrimp salad, and several other things. The kids' items can come with celery, carrots, and a ranch dip or watermelon. More than fries here!! And the drinks were tasty, too. The restructuring of the restaurant includes fans which keep the ever-present flies away (it is an outdoor restaurant).

And the service was fantastic. We had several different waitpeople and bartenders and their attitude was positive and helpful. Is it more expensive than other places on the island? Maybe, but you get what you pay for and I'd rather pay for something that is freshly prepared over a bunch of heavy fried food any day.

Thank you so much for your comments. This is exactly what we were trying to acheive when we decided to renovate the food and beverage service at the pool area. It sounds like we acheived our goal. And, we appreciate you pointing out about the kid friendly food and atmosphere. Kids love the pool so we needed to make sure we provided for them.
