Great View, Great Food

My wife and I enjoyed everything about Schooners. We had a great waiter, a great view and a great "light dinner." Crab soup was particularly good. The Dark & Stormy was the best I've had "this side of Bermuda." The menu isn't extensive, but has something for everyone, especially if you like a... read more

We generally come here about 1/week during their open season. Sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner, sometimes twice a week. We usually have one of the veteran servers wait on us or John Lee/Terry behind the bar. However this past Saturday 9/20/14 we went to have a nice dinner on the water, which we did but not here. We...

Great spot to get a nibble and a cocktail in the quaint town of Oxford. I would definitely go back. Enjoy the steam shrimp Allah Maryland style and a skinny margarita made my way.

The Dark & Stormy was the best I've had "this side of Bermuda." The menu isn't extensive, but has something for everyone, especially if you like a lite seafood fare. Very casual.

Spent some time in Oxford, and loved going to Schooner's, which is right on the Bay. Had perhaps the best soft shell crabs I ever ate, fried in a light tempura-like batter. Next night I joined some other customers for steamed crabs, fresh from the Bay that were fantastic. Outdoor bar is right on the water. Great beer selection. Bill,... More

OK everyone craves a good burger from time to time right? And how many times do u bite in and experience disappointment? The Schooners' burger will never let you down. We. toe it best in class. Oh and it comes with a water view and a cute town. Worth a trip to Oxford! Enjoy! DJ

I have had dinner here twice on summer evenings. It's a big crowd on a big deck, and the music can be loud. But it's a fun atmosphere for all ages and the food is actually both better and cheaper than it has to be. Our group of 7, comprised of 3 adults and 4 teens, ordered 3 beers, 3... More

Picnic tables are great for a crab feast which is why we chose this restaurant for lunch, but they were out of crabs when we were there. Tried other items which were tasty and prepared well.

Everything you want in a dock bar/ restaurant. Water views, good drinks, and great food. The bison burger was a standout.

Came here on a beautiful night in early July. Sat outside and enjoyed the breeze and the views. Very lively place filled with local boating people and tourists. Very good crab cakes and good service. Would return here for casual dining. Prices reasonable.
