The Dolphin Diner will be open during the pool hours. Only cold items will be served 30 minutes prior to closing. We will have a new grill located by the pool pavilion available for member use this summer. Please remember that it is member’s responsibility to clean the grill and make sure the grill is turned off once you are finished grilling. If the gas tank needs to be replaced, please notify the manager on duty. Please note that only one grill is available for member use. The flat top grills are for Dolphin Diner staff. It is also important to remember FISH and SEAFOOD may NOT be cooked on the grills. This is for the safety of members with seafood allergies.
