Dining & Social at the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club

The heart of BHYC is in the camaraderie and activity of members in the clubhouse. Members and their guests can enjoy lunch or dinner in the dining room or informal bar, or join friends for a post-sailing round. Special events can be found every week throughout the season: the dock party, prime rib night, family nights, special musical guests, wine tastings, the author and speaker series, and more.

The Dining Room

Members and their guests are invited to join us for lunch or dinner. Our chef regularly offers special event dinners, stop by or check the calendar for the latest news. The Chef's menus change with the season, based on fresh and local ingredients and reflecting the tastes of summer in Boothbay Harbor. Reservations for lunch or dinner are kindly requested. Please call the hostess desk at 633-5750 after 9:30 AM (except Saturdays and Sundays) to make your dining reservations.
