|Huron Yacht Club|
From its austere beginning on the banks of the Huron River in 1955, the Huron Yacht Club (HYC) has emerged as one of the premier clubs in the western basin of Lake Erie. Offering a full-service restaurant and bar, HYC has been the place to be for members and transient boaters alike with club activities designed for both boaters and non-boaters.
The quaint town of Huron, with its proud history as a fishing village, offers a relaxing atmosphere. If you’re inclined to pick up the pace Thunderbird Hills golf course, Sawmill Creek golf course and the famed amusement park, Cedar Point, are just a short ride away.
There is no view comparable to the sights from HYC’S top-deck dining room. Seating for up to 150 HYC members and Inland Lakes Yacht Association (ILYA) guests provides unique views of the Huron River, Municipal Boat Basin, HYC Marina, the Huron Lighthouse and beautiful Lake Erie. The fullservice menu features fresh cut steaks, pork chops, Lake Erie yellow perch, an array of salads and sandwiches and freshly prepared daily specials. Reservations are encouraged.
The club’s friendly bar staff is eager to help you relax, unwind and put aside the trials of your hectic daily life, if just for a little while. Cocktail hour specials on house wine, domestic beer and house liquors each Wednesday through Friday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Whether you need intimate dining for two in the top deck main dining room, luncheon meeting in the Captain’s Room (also newly remodeled) or cook-out for 100 on the Riverside Patio, the Huron Yacht Club has something for everybody, including a power and a sail fleet that cruises all summer and into September.
Guest docks are limited to members of the ILYA, but HYC’s proximity to the Huron Boat Basin provides more than 100 docks for your use. Either way, it won’t be difficult to find your boat as the night winds down. The club can fill your fuel tanks with either gasoline or diesel, as well as give you a pump out at its gas dock.
