Facilities and Operations Updates

Service Fee and Check Verification
A service fee is included in all restaurant checks when dining at the Restaurant and Pool Bar. The service fee goes towards compensating our staff; no additional tips are required but can be added if you wish. Upon completion of dinner service, we ask all members to sign their checks for verification of their orders.

New Menu at the Pool Bar
We have added new items to our Pool Bar menu to satisfy all your cravings.

Upcoming Closures

  • The Restaurant will be closed on the following Saturdays: October 15, and October 22 for events. The Pool Bar will be open for extended hours for your convenience. Dinner service will resume on Saturday, October 8, and Saturday, October 29.
  • We are excited to announce that we are renovating our Pool and Pool Deck. Please note that while we enhance the space, all of our pools will be unavailable from Monday, November 7 until Friday, December 2. Take advantage of the great weather and dip into the pool before the closure.

Children & Guest Waivers

  • All guest waivers must be signed by adults. Children are not permitted to sign guest waivers for themselves or other children.
  • Parents are fully responsible for their children and guests’ children whenever they are on the premises. Children under the age of 12 must be supervised by an adult at all times when on Club premises.
  • Noise or actions that may be disturbing or unsafe to other members may result in disciplinary action and will incur fees.

Childcare Reminders
As we settle into our school year routine, we would like to remind you of some important items:

  • Advanced reservations are required. We will only accommodate drop-ins if it is safe to do so.
  • You can make reservations up to seven days in advance. Please limit reservations to ONE visit per day.
  • Arrive promptly at your reservation time. Reservations will automatically be cancelled after 15 minutes of the start time and open to another member.
  • If you do not need your reservation, please cancel it as soon as possible on Bay Club Connect. This will free up space for another family.
