Nice Fish Dinner, nothing fancy.

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... read more

My husband and I were planning to stop at several places in Canandaigua on a Friday night. We were going to grab a good sandwich at a Bistro but it was closed. I suggested we try Schooners. It was about 5:30 and the place was filling up. We were able to be seated right away. The atmosphere isn't anything special... More

This is my second visit in years to the restaurant. We wanted something nice and cozy and we got it. From the moment we walked and were seated the staff were excellent. The buffet was incredible. Not a lot of fancy dishes. Traditional items like you would prepare at home but better and no mess to clean up. I cannot... More

The food was scrumptious. I especially like the homemade seafood pasta salad which was included in the salad bar. The meals were reasonable and very tasty. I had 4 in my party, including a child. My daughter really enjoyed her meal as well. The waitress was knowledgeable and very friendly. We were seated right away which was great because we... More

We happened here on a Sunday around lunch time. I normally hesitate to pay for a brunch since I don't eat that much generally to get my money's worth. But at 13.00 per person, this was a decent meal with plenty of breakfast and lunch-type dishes to choose from. It's not fancy; just good food.

We stopped for lunch and was pleasantly surprised at the extensive menu. I ordered a turkey pannini sandwich which came with roasted red peppers with pesto. This included a large variety to choose for a side. My husband ordered the chicken salad melt and that too was delicious. We both chose the chili for our sides and it too was... More

Great food at a tremendous price! I found Schooner's to be a very "tasty" and fast for lunch.I was pleased to say the least and my "picky"companion found the salad to be very fresh.
