Place we were going to meet friends was closed. Note on door sent us here. Somewhat hard to find. But got right in and on beach. We had 3 popcorn shrimp baskets and I had Grouper sandwich. Everyone liked the shrimp even commented on size larger than most popcorn shrimp. The 3cheese grits also hit. Fish sandwich while fish was... More

A local recommended this place to my husband and I. It's right on the beach so it has that beach house feel. The service was great very friendly staff. The food was pricey but well worth it I got the crab cakes and my husband got the lobster Mac and cheese. Both were amazing. The French fries were terrible but... More

Had lunch at Schooners. Great view of the beach and ocean from the restaurant. We had the grouper fingers and fries, which were OK. Mixed drinks were OK. The server we had only came back once to see if we needed anything else.

We visited Schooners last year when we were in PCB and decided to come back this year. We arrived shortly before sunset on a Thurs night. Had a short wait to be seated but were lucky to b seated at the rear of the restaurant which was beachfront for a perfect sunset view. The weather was wonderful that evening and... More

The food is no better than any other local restaurant, but the price was outrageous. We spent well over $70 on a dinner for 2. No appetizer. No mixed drinks. Only good thing was the environment. Right on the beach. But, there are also 2 other restaurants located right on front beach. Try them for a cheaper meal. Experience is... More

Love this place, casual open-air, right on the beach, unbeatable location for the sunset. Server was very friendly. Overall food was good, only negatives was meditterean salad was way too salty, and the lobster bucket was delicious, but swimming in too much butter/garlic and needed to serve with wet wipes. Prices are reasonable and not overly priced like many tourist... More

Schooners is one of the best kept secrets in PCB. The food is delicious. I recommend the fried crab claws and hush puppies. The view is unbeatable. Perfect place to watch the sunset.

The grouper fish sandwich is wonderful, can't go wrong with it but they have a gruben sandwich which is grilled grouper fish with all the fixings of a ruben, man it's supreme. Everything we have ever eaten here has been delicious. Service always great, fast and friendly no matter how busy they are. No need to dress up, can go... More

Just had a fantastic meal here! First, we were seated at one of the high tops looking directly out onto the Gulf! Wonderful location and beautiful breeze blowing in off the water. Our waiter, Aaron, was great. But the food... I had the best blackened Mahi-Mahi I've ever had. My wife had fried shrimp (we seldom eat fried foods) and... More
