RAMSEY ROOM

University Club members enjoy a breathtaking view in our formal dining room. Open for lunch, dinner, and brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

MEMBER BAR

Located on the first floor, adjacent to the Ramsey Room, the Member Bar provides a natural "meeting and greeting" place for members, especially during our Friday Night Member Night.

VARSITY GRILL

The Varsity Grill, adjacent to the outdoor deck, offers a refuge on hot summer days, and Full Members enjoy the option of poolside dining.

THE DECK

Our beautiful outdoor deck overlooks Downtown St. Paul and the Mississippi River Valley.

Open from Memorial Day until Labor Day, brunch, lunch and dinner are served on the beautiful, private two-tiered deck that overlooks the University Club's "backyard" - the swimming pool, playground and tennis court - all with a view of downtown Saint Paul and the Mississippi River Valley.

The outdoor deck is the perfect place for casual dining, and members and guests may also choose to dine inside in the Varsity Grill.  Located on the lower level of the Club that opens to the deck, the Varsity Grill features a historic bar and a comfortable and inviting dining area.

POOLSIDE

Members and their guests can choose to order from our popular Poolside Menu. Pool Runners will take your order and deliver to you as you bask in the sun, or enjoy eating your lunch or dinner at one of the umbrella tables poolside.

Food service is available every day during the summer from 11:00am–8:00pm.

Pool Shack

We also have a fully staffed Pool Shack for lighter fare. The Pool Shack is open daily from 11:00am–8:00pm.

FIRESIDE ROOM

Filled with comfortable overstuffed furniture and tastefully appointed with brass chandeliers and Audubon prints, the Fireside Room invites conversation and exudes warmth.
