Food: I couldn't decide what I wanted but eventually ordered a Cesar salad and fried crab claws. It was OK not anything special. Everyone else ordered the fried shrimp and the seafood flatter. They said it was OK as well. Atmosphere: Perfect place to grab an expensive drink with friends while your taking a break from the beach. The restaurant... More

Always good music, hot food and excellent beach service!!! Try the wings as appetizers, and forget the seafood...try the Schooner's burger. Best tasting burgers in the gulf coast from Tampa to Brownsville, TX!!!

Upon advice from some friends we ate dinner here at Schooner's. Place was kinda cool in nature and they are the last local beach bar. You can walk out straight to the beach; beachcombers come in, use the facilities, order a drink or have lunch or dinner. The food on the other hand was bland and I don't understand WHY... More

Kinda of a slow Sunday night, and stormy out. I ordered the Ribeye, which for 16 oz was about $22 and it was cooked perfect, and had a good seasoning! I was really wanting a baked potato...but all they had was these small "baby 1" baked" potatoes, that didnt impress me what so ever...and seemed like they would cost the... More

Being a resident of Hawaii, I can't tell you how many times I hear "It's so expensive there" but I can tell you, the price for a fish sandwich at Schooner's cost more than many decent places on Maui. The pre-packaged tarter sauce was a turn off. How can you claim to have the best grouper sandwich and serve it... More

The view was topnotch!! I ordered a "Greuben" which is a reuben made w/ grouper instead of corn beef (I had them hold the thousand island dressing), it was GREAT!! My friend ordered a burger that she just raved about!! Definitely go there again!!

This was our second time to Schooner's & we enjoyed it as we did before. We had four adults & two kids & had an excellent server, Jimmy. The seating on the open air beach was great, with a gentle breeze, good music & good food. The lobster corn soup was really outstanding, & I would certainly order again. My... More

This is one of the best "beach scene" restaurants you can go to which offers a great hybrid of indoor/outdoor seating. They have great service and servers and a nice selection of food which is reasonably priced seeing they are right on the beach. They offer way cheaper mixed drinks than their competitors which are just as good if not... More

I was torn between rating this average or very good. I rated it very good mainly because the food is good, not great, but good and between that and it being on the beach with a great view, I thought it was "very good". I got the Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich with fries. The sandwich was satisfying, but had a... More
