Try to get there before 6 pm on a Friday . It is packed. Locals know the fried shrimp dinner is fantastic! Shrimp are butterflied and have a delicate batter. You can choose which sides you want. Datil pepper sauce..worth bringing some home.

This locally owned seafood restaurant has great daily specials along with their specialty seafood items. The food is consistently good and servers are very friendly and accommodating. Expect to wait a little while during peak meal times, but it is worth it. I would give it a 5 except the restaurant is not there for fancy atmosphere, just every day... More

We wanted seafood, local, not the tourist location type of place. I checked out Trip Advisor, thanks to all the reviews it help us pick Schooner's! Service was excellent, food was great and a lot of it too. Fried Catfish came with 3 huge pieces of fish, broiled stuffed shrimp was "stuffed" with crab and the broiled shrimp and scallops... More

We were given the name of this restaurant when we asked our hotel staff for a reasonable but good seafood restaurant. We visited the restaurant 2 times. on the first we took advantage of the special of 12 shrimp fried plus french fries or baked potato and saw or salad and hush puppies for a remarkable price of 9.25. the...

Overpriced and expensive, no substitutions on a combo platter, just plain no, coleslaw tasted like a chemical was in it, stuffed shrimp was deep fried. Not a good experience.

We went to Schooner's on the recommendation of a local. Glad we did. The service was excellent. The portions were enormous. If I had known that, we would have shared some dinners. We did get the crab fritters as an appetizer and they were spectacular! The waitress said they were known for their shrimp, so that is what I got... More

Lucked up on this place on the north side of town. Unlike so many restaurants around Saint Augustine, parking is easy and free. You'll notice all the local cars when you drive through. Very reasonable pricing and just plain good food. Fried seafood battered (but not too heavy) was good and vegetables were fresh. Fantastic value for families. Stopped in... More

This is a VERY busy place on the weekends. We arrived early (around 5:30) and waited about 30 min. for a table, which seemed reasonable. Once seated, our waitress seemed inconvenienced by our presence. Everything was slow and our food came warm, not hot. My husband had to ask twice for the beer he ordered. Good flavor, but we were...
