There's nothing "fancy" about Schooners cuisine; it is simple, fresh and perfect. No sauces cover the unbeatable flavor of truly fresh Grouper sizzled to perfection on the Schooners grill. A platter of fresh Fried Oysters, Hushpuppies and icy cold beer blend perfectly with the salty breeze blowing in off the Gulf.

We were wanting something other than a franchise to eat at. This was an awesome place to eat. It is right on the beach. They had entertainment. Food was delicious and priced right. Our waitress was Breezy, and she was great! We will go back.

Great beach spot. Love that the whole restaurant is open-air. We were told it would be an hour wait and we were seated after just about one hour. We got drinks from the outdoor bar at the entrance and listened to the band while we waited. Service was predictably slow but the server was friendly and efficient. My husband had... More

Great atmosphere. It's always wonderful seeing the ocean and feeling the breeze as you eat. We were a party of 14 and there was an extended wait time but there is an area outside the restaurant that you can sit at tables and enjoy beverages while you wait. Security was convinced 2 in our party were underaged and had fake... More

This place has a great beach atmosphere. It's casual and a fun place to be. We went with 11 people.... we called ahead to ask about a wait.. they told us to come about 5 for less likely of a wait. They got us right in and the food was great! I highly recommend this restaurant! We will certainly go... More

Famous among locals/visitors alike, and a good mix of all age groups. A good alternative to the Superclubs if you are not into the younger 20-30s crowd. Good for Sunset, family dining or lunch and a beach day !!

My family and I went to here for dinner while on vacation in pcb and it was the best restaraunt we went to. Ray, our waiter, was extremely nice and gave us wonderful service. There was great live music and we all had a great time. Definitely a must if you're in the area!
