Lake Elsinore: The Diamond Club…The Storms’ Hidden Gem for Great Food and Drinks 

The Diamond Club is Open to the Public so Come in and Savor some of the Chef’s Unique Creations

Nestled just behind the far left field bleachers at Diamond Stadium in Lake Elsinore, is the Diamond Club. This little restaurant and bar is the perfect place to enjoy Storm Baseball.

Many people have been coming to the stadium for years and have never ventured in because they thought it was a “Private”, member’s only club. Not so, so be sure to stop in during your next Storm Game.

The relaxing dining room features glass windows looking on to the field so that you can catch all the action. This is the ultimate in Dining Theater for local sports fans. The restaurant features a impressive menu that you can dine in or take out. The Diamond Club also has a Full Bar and the service is exceptional.

We tried several of the Chef’s creations. The Boneless Buffalo Bites were amazing. They were all natural chicken breast meat tossed in chipotle raspberry sauce (Other sauces are also available). The Fried Pickles were delicate and delicious.

Next, we sampled the Fried Mac & Cheese. This dish absolutely floored all 3 of our tasters. It’s a “must try” when you visit the Diamond Club. I’m a traditionalist and needed my hot dog and beer for the game. We split the Doganator. It’s a half pound all beef hot dog served on a 10 inch bun, smothered with chili and cheese. It was just what the occasion called for.

The Mucho Gusto Chicken Taco Salad came in a tostada bowl filled with Spanish rice, lettuce, diced tomatoes and beans. This was covered with cheddar cheese, black olives, sliced chicken breasts, salsa, sour cream and guacamole. This was Becky’s favorite.

The Diamond Club’s menu features 11 appetizers, 5 salads and 10 entrees. There are 4 different kinds of Thunder Meals for the kids and also 4 desserts for mom and dad. The Full Bar carries 14 beers all the time and sometimes some special seasonal selections.

It was tough to decide but we settled on the Broken Bat Sundae for dessert and I’m glad we did. The dessert came with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with a freshly fried and broken churro. This all topped with cinnamon, sugar whipped cream and caramel sauce. There are no proper adjectives to describe it.

The Diamond club is also available for special parties and events. The 5,000 square foot facility can accommodate up to 250 guests. It has multi-media capabilities, including a state of the art PA system. There is also a dvd player, 5 big screen plasma televisions, a digital projector and a 10 foot drop down presentation screen.
