“No blackened Tuna Salad?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

It's on the menu but for two consecutive weeks in a row at lunch they have not had this item... they state they are out of it. You can order a tuna steak, or a tuna sandwich.... the sandwich is tuna with lettuce. The week before last the waitress told us they had run out of wasabi so they couldn't serve it, this week the waiter had no clue. It is mind boggling.

The tuna sandwich was mediocre at best.

“Good little college pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

I like Schooners. I like it more during the day and early evening before the students come in to play. It can be quiet enough for a business lunch or quiet lunch between appointments. Good pub-like menu, good drinks, good selection of beers.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Loved the wings. Was busy after a game at CNU, but the staff did the best they could when it was inundated.

“Pitiful, A Pathetic excuse for a restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2011

Bad Service, WORSE FOOD, Unacommidating management. DO NOT GO THERE, only thing halfway decent is the the beer and liquor, perhaps because all they have to do is put it in a glass. It's hard for them to screw that up too.

“Gotta try Schooners!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2011

If you get a chance to try Schooners, especially when CNU is out of session, you ought to give it a try. Their Loaded Fries are the best I've had anywhere, and I've yet to have anything bad there.
