The Clock Tower Café was originally constructed in 1931 and built alongside the Waveland Fieldhouse (currently the Sydney R. Marovitz Clubhouse), as a refreshment stand to accommodate the patrons of the surrounding golf course, tennis courts and ping pong tables. The Clock Tower was designed by native Chicagoan Edwin H. Clark in the same English Gothic style as other landmarks in Waveland and Lincoln Park to offer North Siders the same fieldhouse experience found on the South Side.
Today the Clock Tower offers more than just refreshments. Take in the surroundings during your meal with magnificent views of Lake Michigan or Downtown Chicago from one of our two patios (one of which is dog-friendly), or enjoy your meal inside and watch the game on one of our seven flat screen TVs. Our delicious menu provides not-to-be-missed options for everyone in your group!
