Friendly staff. The food can be hit or miss but the view makes up for it. The wings are yummy. I travel alone and appreciate a sweet bartender.

We keep coming back to Schooner's too easy. We enjoy the atmosphere, food, and servers. We have not had a bad meal or any complaints about this place. We try to keep coming back as much as we can.

A few of my friends recommended eating at Schooners. We tried one night and couldn't find decent parking, so we tried the next evening. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated, which isn't too bad. Our waiter wasn't the most social guy, he seemed...More

There's nothing "fancy" about Schooners cuisine; it is simple, fresh and perfect. No sauces cover the unbeatable flavor of truly fresh Grouper sizzled to perfection on the Schooners grill. A platter of fresh Fried Oysters, Hushpuppies and icy cold beer blend perfectly with the salty breeze blowing in off the Gulf.
