I have eaten at the Pool and Yacht Club many times over the years, and have never been disappointed. The specials are always unique, and the servers have consistently provided great advice for what to order. The menu has some classics like prime rib and steaks, but also mixes in a few fish/seafood options that are always exceptional. The service... More

Service is second to none. The food is excellent, we've been here several times for dinner and weekend brunch and have been very pleased with both. I would highly recommend. Excellent place to have a large celebration or meeting. The staff will attend to you as if you are the only ones there.

We went for a birthday dinner with a friend who is a member of the club. The location on the river was beautiful. The staff was attentive. Surprisingly large menu. Pretty good wine list. Steaks were excellent. One of the better meals we've had in the city. Can't wait to return to try some other dishes.

We are members here, and consistently find the food to be disappointing. Pool menu is very limited. Mostly fried foods with a few other attempts at healthy fare (e.g., very bland "Asian lettuce wraps"). Food is very basic. Food at the restaurant is OK. Lots of typical Midwestern, heavy food. Overpriced for the quality. Brunch buffet on the weekend is... More

This private pool is clean and safe. Lifeguards are on duty. Food and beverage service is available. The kids come home tired, fed, and clean. It is very busy weekends in early June.

This is a private club but you can get a one day pass to evaluate. Poolside has full bar and grill with chair side service. Get there early though on weekends it will fill up. Lifeguards on duty, nice slide for the kids. Across the street is the Lounge and Dinner Restaurant. There is a dock with room for 3... More

Private club, but open to prospective members. Only fine dining restaurant taking advantage of the river front in the Metro. A quiet oasis with a great bill of fare. Reservations encouraged.

It is a nice place for a short meeting. The lunch is good, a little small in quantity and the prices a little high. Service is great.

We would tell anyone who was in town to stop at the Pool and Yacht. It is in the Top 5 for food and Drink, it is a members only club but they will let you tour the club and let you enjoy all the have to offer. Go to place for meeting who's who in St Paul MN.
