As an exclusive dining club, the heart and soul of our membership is found in our menus. Dining is available Tuesday-Friday for lunch and dinner and takeout service is offered. 

Reciprocal Clubs 

The Club maintains relationships with over 250 reciprocal clubs across the United States and abroad to stay, golf, or dine. Members are required to have a Letter of Introduction sent prior to arrival. 


Multiple meeting rooms for various group sizes are available to members. Rooms are equipped with a/v and wifi. Members are excused from room rental fees. 

Wine and Spirits

Members are permitted to purchase spirits, wine, beer or alcohol for consumption outside of the Club at wholesale cost + 10%.
In-Home Catering services are available to members planning at-home dinner parties or events. Menus and services can be arranged through the Catering Office.


Private Rooms

The Club maintains several private dining rooms on the first and second floors that are available for members for personal or business related functions. Private dining room seating ranges from 6 to 180 people. Private dining rooms must be reserved through the club office.


Spouses and domestic partners are automatically entitled to use the Club and reciprocal clubs at their leisure for all membership types except business. Charges reflecting their use will appear on your monthly statement. Spouses and domestic partners  may also serve on Club committees but may not chair the committee or vote.

Children's Needs

The Club is family oriented and realizes children's needs are different than adult's. The Club strives to provide programs, activities and food choices, which make their visit memorable and enjoyable. Children under the age of 5 eat free at the Club from the Children's Menu in our a la carte dining rooms.
