Okay, looked this restaurant up here on "trip" and felt it's worth trying. I wanted the Mahi- Mahi and just good seafood. We arrived around 5:30 p.m. to try and beat the crowd and we did just barley. Parking is not the best. In fact when we was leaving there was a line of cars trying to get in and... More

We went because it was next to our condo and we had no desire to drive after a long trip. Its a fantastic atmosphere and that is not normally a priority to me. We went at about 6:30 and there was a steel drum player and guitar/vocalist playing covers. Our waitress was good and the food was very good. We... More

Had read reviews here before going, so we decided to try it one night for dinner. Had a wait when we got there, and I asked if we could sit at the bar and order an appetizer because we had 2 small children (3 and 5) w/us and knew we needed to keep them happy & fed. No problem -... More

We had a wait time of 45 minutes on a Friday night. Our server Wayne was on top of it all through service and they were so busy. The food was delicious, all 7 of us in our party were pleased with the food. A great place to hang out right on the beach.

We were seated with a fabulous view. 2 of us ordered grouper sandwiches plain. They came out grilled and we ordered fried. When they brought them back out they were dressed, not plain. Finally got them and the fish just wasn't good. The girls ordered grilled chicken and they loved it. They also loved the mashed potatoes. Waitress wasn't nice... More

Schooners in Panama City Beach is outstanding, a little pricey but we thought it was worth it. The surroundings are great, the food is great, the staff is great. Worth the Money

Got there early so we could get in with out a wait. Waiter was right there. Got us a drink right away. No bottle Beer not good. The blacken Mahi sandwich was good. A little over priced but good. The ocean view was wonderful. Took a walk on the beach afterwards. The locals hang out for sure. Go early.

I have always make sure to go to Schooners while in PCB but this time I was disappointed. The prices have gone up and the portions smaller. I ordered the fried oysters and got a plate back with about 8 very small oysters and one of them was just a clump of batter. Actually had more hushpupples than oysters. Great... More

The atmosphere was good and typical for the area. The Staff did a very good job with the amount of crowd at the time. The food to us was average at best. We will stick with our favorite down the road.
