    How the Naval Academy Club Upgrades Your Whole Navy Experience

    The Naval Academy Club and its offerings are traditions of excellence on the Yard. Read on to learn how you can be a part of this tradition.


    Join the Club

    For over 100 years, the Naval Academy Club (The Club) has been an important part of our USNA history. Throughout this time, this elegant, stunning space has hosted festive wedding receptions, famous brunches, beautiful banquets, important meetings, and even more important everyday moments. The Club was recently refreshed to feature a more modern decor while paying homage to the USNA roots through the beautiful artwork displayed.

    The Club has a variety of categories, with varying eligibility requirements for prospective members. Membership fees vary by category. Additionally, the Club offers an incredible membership opportunity to Plebe parents and spouses. Plebe parents may join the Club for a one-time fee of $150 that is valid for the four years that your midshipman is at the Academy. Additionally, your plebe receives membership for their tenure, plus an additional five years after commissioning.


    Never Go Hungry on the Yard

    As members, you’ll have access to some of the most unique dining spots in Annapolis. Dine at the award-winning Alley Restaurant, where we feature high-end dining choices in a classic and upscale casual atmosphere. The executive chef dreams up weekly specials with fresh and innovative seasonal cuisine. Enjoy exclusive members-only club dining events, including the Mongolian BBQ, Cinco de Mayo celebration, Valentine’s Dinner Dance, and Wine Pairings. Try the “All You Can Eat” Maine Lobster or feast on the tantalizing swordfish steak. The cheeseburger and crab cake sandwiches are equally delicious.

    Sunday brunch mornings are the talk of the town, featuring a mouthwatering all-you-can-eat buffet. We also run a popular 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. happy hour and offer dinners between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. After filling up, you can kick back and relax at the comfortable Club Bar.

    Members qualify for special lunch discounts.

    If golfing is more your speed, then you are welcome to pull up a stool at The Club at Greenbury Point (CGP). Here you’ll find a full bar, large screen televisions, and even a shuffleboard court! CGP serves light fare and snacks every day and hosts Happy Hour every Friday. Members can relax, unwind and enjoy tasty dishes after a week of adventures.


    Host Your Special Event

    If you’re looking for an upscale space to host your next get-together, look no farther than our extraordinary banquet facilities and our unparalleled Naval Academy Catering services. Take the worry out of planning your event and partner with one of our Catering Account Executives, who will help coordinate your special event. Your guests will be delighted to partake in this beautiful setting while helping you make memories.


    Shop ‘Til You Drop

    Club members are granted access to the Midshipmen Store, which is only open to authorized patrons and offers many products and spirit gear items not found elsewhere. You’ll also unlock discounts at our online store, Navyonline. Not only do we want you to have special privileges, but 100% of profits from your purchases are used to help support the brigade's extracurricular activities and quality of life events.


    Create Your USNA Community

    Being a part of the NAC connects you in so many ways to the Academy. Whether you’re visiting midshipmen, enjoying shopping and discounts, or being sated by our scrumptious food, most importantly, you’ll be spending time with friends and family on the Yard.
