Dining with a View
With a panoramic view of Galveston Bay, the Houston Yacht Club dining room has a reputation for fine cuisine served in an elegant but relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place to bring a business associate or friends for lunch or dinner. It’s a great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or any event. It’s also a wonderful place to have a quiet, leisurely dinner and watch the sunset. Reservations are suggested.
Dining and banquet options at Houston Yacht Club are as varied as the people who enjoy them. Members can munch on Ragnot Burgers and French fries in the dining room before heading out to the race course, or select their favorites from the menu after Friday Night Happy Hour. Order a box lunch from the kitchen if you plan to be on the bay all day Saturday, or have a casual lunch by the pool. Order from the menu anytime the dining room is open, choosing from all the options you’d expect from a full-service restaurant.
In addition to the regular menu, which features both comfort food and gourmet entrees, the chef offers specials, as well as beef, pork and poultry dishes.
And don’t forget, our professional staff is available to help you make special arrangements for business meetings, weddings, graduation parties or anniversaries. Whatever the occasion, we can help you handle it properly.
