The buffets are outstanding! And I'm not a buffet person. Waitstaff is great and live music some nights.

“Never disappointed - and beautiful view”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

Go early when possible -- the Yacht Club Dining opens at 5:30 pm, Weds-Sat PM only. The Sunday Breakfast Buffet is probably their most popular offering -- and the family members love the waffle station. For evenings, when WYC is busy and tables filled, service can lag. Beautiful view and dress code augments a nice dining atmosphere. It's not jacket- required, but golf shirts (no tees, shorts, etc) and usually lovely, live background music.. Good wine selection and the entree recommendations for the evening are usually spot-on. Buffets are fine -- a lot of people like more food and grazing. My personal preference when dining in a lovely place, I like to order a special dish and enjoy the chef's handiwork.. Bread pudding as a dessert in the past has been very good. The fish dishes are good choices. Fresh bread at the table after being seated is served hot and salads offer a nice selection. If a veal dish is offered, I recommend it. Some real estate types will sometimes occupy large group tables and can be louder than most people; however, you may always be re-seated if they are noisy. If you come early, you also have a higher chance of being seated at the windows overlooking the lake -- and it's a lovely way to enjoy a glass of wine and the sunset. Ask to be seated away from the bar also if you don't enjoy the louder noise that can detract from one of the prettiest places on Lake Conroe.

“Beautiful view and great service”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

We visited the Walden Yacht Club restaurant for a date night, and were pleasantly surprised. A wrap-around patio along the lake side of the restaurant provides a beautiful view of Lake Conroe, especially at sunset during the summer. The grounds are very nice. Dinner quality varied - my Sea Bass Napal was excellent, but my wife's Snapper Pontchartrain was mediocre. Servers were very attentive, and the live music was tasteful and not overbearing. We had a great time and will return.
