Going to Schooners? Be sure to tell people you are there and have them pull up schooners.com so they can see you on any of their three LIVE streaming cameras! FUN, FUN! We used go there quite a bit on our visits to PCB but after a few bad experiences with tasteless food we found other places to patronize. Well,... More

This was off the beaten path a bit, but it was great. Super close to St. Andrew's State Park, so it was perfect for lunch. We beat the crowd for lunch. Burger I had was delicious and so was the frozen rum runner. I even got a souvenir cup that came in handy for beach drinking the rest of my... More

We went in the afternoon and had some drinks and food. The atmosphere is very pleasant, and we had a great view of the beach while we relaxed. I would definitely recommend making this a part of your trip!

We always come to Schooners every time we come to PCB. The food is very fresh, and the atmosphere is amazing as it is right on the beach. Go for a great time and fresh seafood!

The food was delicious. The service was wonderful. The band was awesome. This is EXACTLY what you want in a beachside restaurant. We didn't want to leave and the kids were happy playing catch football on the beach. So we kept ordering so we could enjoy the atmosphere!!!

Typical Florida beach bar, crowded, fairly good seafood. You come here for the view and fun beach vibe. Had to ask for old bay seasoning for my peel and eat shrimp after it arrived, no problem, but like it marinating in it for awhile. Tough parking. Go ahead and do it, just don't expect anything upscale.

We went here on our first night. We all had a variety of things on the menu. The shrimp was great as was the grouper sandwich which one in our party got. The dessert was ok. We had the peanut butter pie which I don't think was anything homemade. Our waitress was really nice but went MIA there for a... More

In the twenty plus years I've been visiting Panama City Beach, I always make a point of stopping in Schooners at least once during my visit. Right on the beach, good food and good service. We had the fish tacos and a cheeseburger, it was alot of food. The voodoo punch can sneak up on you. We enjoy the live... More

We were told to try this place and specifically the grouper sandwich. I am so glad we did. We went by it on a Friday night and the wait was crazy!!! We went back on a Sunday for lunch and we walked right in. They are right on the beach you can walk right out and enjoy the beach after... More

First off, I realize it is a bar-ish restaurant, so I expected loud and music. What I didn't expect was other patrons allowing their kids to scream and Hollar while we were trying to eat and enjoy the music. I mean, I know it is open air at the beach, but let's have a little respect for others. Now for... More
