We met some friends there for drinks and decided to order some food. It was incredible! The wings were straight from the Northeast. The fried tofu was the best I've ever eaten. The bartender was on top of it and the cook even came out...More

Cheap eats that were pretty good. Great bartenders, no waiting for drinks. Its gets busy in waves. We had some good bar seats and enjoyed the decorations and talking to others who happened into the bar area.

A great super chill bar. Good drafts and ciders. Bar tenders are nice and the people are laid back. Highly suggest it

Decent bar food. Very eclectic clientele. Tater tots are very good! Can get crowded at night, especially on the weekends or if the weather is nice.

Totally unexpected. The name makes one think of a high society pretentious expensive hipster bar. On entering, staying and drinking it's clearly the opposite of pretentious. Wonderful place for drinks, great service. Quirky!

Membership is $1.00. Great selection of beers. Friendly patrons and staff. Ordered chicken Ceasar wrap and a bowl of the vegan chili. Both were good plus must order the tater tots.

The Yacht Club is now members only, but membership is free and worth the effort. The name is somewhat misleading...more like the Pirate club, as the decor is done in mid-century pirate. Drinks are great (get The Painkiller, complete with burning sugar cube) and the...More

We loved the yacht club. Excellent people watching, friendly staff and entertaining decor around the bar. I love a good dive bar and we will return to the yacht club for sure! Maybe tonight 😊
