The dining experience at The Florida Yacht Club is unforgettable. The warm, fun and friendly environment is present all of the time. Our Chef prepares a wide variety of world class cuisine ranging from hand cut steaks and local produce to the best seafood in the City. Along with seasonal menus in the dining room, our “Chef’s Market” menu is created nightly for our members’ enjoyment.

Our Chef receives daily deliveries of whole fish, hand selecting the best available, and then preparing our nightly features with a sushi grade product. There are many dining traditions at The Florida Yacht Club, for example, fried chicken on Wednesdays and Pasta Bar on Thursdays. These have been some of our specials for over half a century.

St. Augustine Cruise and Offshore Fishing Tournament

Tournament days are Friday and Saturday (pick one, Captain’s choice). To register for the tournament and receive a copy of the rules please email Tim Monahan (tim.monahan@ml.com). As always there will be a social Saturday evening. This year’s will be a poolside potluck at Camachee Cove weather permitting. Bring your favorite dish to share. Hopefully, the fishermen will have plenty of mahi, but to be safe bring something for the grill.
