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 was plenty plus the sides made a great meal. Lots of seating, no wait when we arrived around 5:30p but when we left there were people waiting for their turn for a great meal.

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 second time we went there for under 10 dollars I chose breaded and my wife broiled pork chops plus 2 sides. needless to say the food was excelent and portions were of a size that sent us back to the hotel with go boxes.

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 along with some Mahi Mahi. The shrimp was really good and the fish was a bit dry. The onion rings were homemade and delicious - so worth the calories! There were 5 in our party and we each got some form of the shrimp, which was quite tasty. It was all fried and that is not something I usually get, but it was good and I would go back, but we would share dinners!

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 for lunch and although so many restaurants we wanted to try we went back for dinner the next night.
