Outdoor seating was nice and menu is greatly improved. New items like watermelon and shrimp salad complimented the great nachos and the fish tacos! Good caesar salad too.
Enjoyed the Friday music which starts at 6!
A definite recommendation.

I would be willing to bet any of the negative reviews of this place were from customers sitting outside on the picnic tables. It can be a bit dusty and hectic outside. With kids running around and dust from cares trying to park, I agree the outside area is not really the atmosphere one would expect for a fine dining experience. If you want to enjoy the best of this place, go inside. It is warm, cozy and comfortable. The food is amazing, especially the soups. The menu is creative and the chef clearly knows what he is doing. On the last visit, I had a simple french country style baked chicken with an amazing risotto and lemon au jus. So simple, yet so amazing. They have a small wine list, but good wines at great prices. Bottom line, chef quality food like you would find in Vail's finest establishments without the price and pretense. Well done!

This place could be a goldmine - great location and quaint but the service and food is horrendous! Just getting an Italian Ice from the cabana was a "not good" experience and then the food for 4 at the table was very disorganized and disappointing. We spent 3 days in Wolcott and told everyone we met not to waste their money on the Wolcott Yacht Club. Maybe they just smoke too much dope??? Not sure but there sure are problems.

They close at 9 and we arrived at 8:05. A little late, but not extreme. The bartender who was coming over to give us menus stopped to make idle chatter at another table so we sat there for almost ten minutes with no menus or water. The food was pretty good, but not memorable. We'll give it the old local's try again next year.

Don't be fooled by the cynical name of this being a fancy, stuffy, pretentious yacht club. It's really a great restaurant on a stream. Super creative menu, warm, talkative staff and value for the buck. Make the drive from Avon (15 minutes) for the best meal you'll have in months.
