We gave it another try and so happy we did!!

Schooners has changed hands multiple times over the years. Its now in good hands. For a few years we avoided this restaurant due to a bad experience it has turned around. We were here last Friday night and the good was great. Love the Shrimp Scampi - Offer a small salad bar or Soup. Oh my if... read more

I personally won't be back. But if you find yourself here it is not a disaster but just a place to get food and forget it.

Friendly wait staff and good food. Our filet lobster and prime rib was cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. Their salad bar was fresh with your choice of blueberry muffin or dinner roll. No baked potato except on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

I had the worst waitress ever. She offered no drinks water was it. No salad with our $20 dinners. She enjoyed talking other waitresses. Our family was no priority here. Hardly anyone there so I understand why. Top it off with a dirty glass and dish. No I will never be back.

There were 11 people in our party and everyone was happy with their dinner. The prime rib was seasoned perfectly and several sizes were offered. The lobster tail and 3 different haddock preparations were also excellent! They have prime rib and batter fried fish on the menu every night along with the salad bar. They have chicken, haddock and artichoke... More

Three of us stopped in for some dinner before a show at CMAC. One had an excellent meal (beer battered fish), one had an average meal (a shrimp dish), and one was not happy (pasta/chicken). We chose this place because we don't like to eat at chains. Maybe we should have hit up an Applebees instead.

We (husband and wife) arrived at the restaurant about Noon time on Sunday, 6/14/15. We were in town to scope out the area for a decent eatery when we attend a concert in August at the (very) nearby GMAC. The exterior of the restaurant was disappointing, to say the least. But we hoped for a better interior and we certainly... More

We came to Schooner's with a restaurant.com coupon in hand and set it on the table. After we ordered our waitress told us that the coupon would not be honored because of a dispute between the restaurant and restaurant.com ... apparently there was only to be $5 coupons, which set me back a bit given the prices of the entrees....

While in Canadaigua, we had a nice dinner at Schooner. This is not a fancy place, and it was not crowded in January, but I expect it is hopping in the summer. Serviecable decor -- again, nothing fancy. The dinner came with a salad bar, which had crisp lettuce and nice veggies. We happen to have been located right next... More
