The University Club is a great club, offering a wide range of activities for adults, kids, and families. Plus Yoga and a fitness center. The pool, sandbox, clay tennis court and playground are great for the summer.

F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald danced in their ballroom and partied at the University Club, so it's an American literary heritage site. But the food is pretty average. My friend had a hamburger and fries and the burger was okay but the patty looked pre-formed...More
