First of all, Schooners has the best atmosphere. It is situated right on the water at the beach, in the sand. The people watching is amazing!

The Shady Grove Tomato... More

We went to Schooners last night for a late dinner. It was a party of 11 and we were surprised to be seated in about 20 minutes(told it would be 45 minutes to 1 hour). We were seated near the beach entrance at a high top table. The stools were fairly uncomfortable to sit in for that length of time... More

Food is super yummy, fantastic location. We walked from our condo with shoes in hand and walked right off the beach up into the open restaurant! We have to hit Schooners EVERY time we are in PCB!!!

Finally found a reasonably priced restaurant with a great beach view that serves a grilled grouper fillet. Most food items are served casual beach-style in baskets, but with real silverware. The waitress said that my meal would be less expensive if I ordered it fried. No thank you. She was quick to pick up that I do not care for... More

Absolutely Disgusting! Nasty people. Shrimp lunch special 5 shrimp for $15.99. Rude bar tenders, shady and management very rude. Not worthy of what PCB has to offer at nearby restaurants. No class in management and bar tenders.

This restaraunt was within walking distance to Treasure Island. Allowed both myself and my husband the opportunity to enjoy some adult beverages without having to drive.

We love Schooner's! Great food, great atmosphere, wonderful service! Open air seating and live music. There is a little wait usually, but not bad.

Started with the Calamari. Excellent ! Cooked just right. At our table there was 4 people. We ordered the Seafood Platter, Shrimp Platters and... More
