Always enjoy getting lunch or dinner at this gem. Love sitting at the bar and looking out at the beach while enjoying a cold beer and fish tacos. We’ll be back for sure.

Brought my family of four to eat lunch. No wait but server took 10 mins to get to our table. Food was just average. Too expensive for the product served. There’s better places to go.

The grilled grouper is amazing. We tried the calamri, the crab cakes and wings. All were delicious. In addition to great food, they have great live bands in the evening.

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.
