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.

Horrible looking dessert tray upon entry, dated decor, dirty carpet although other areas clean. The service was ok and the food was actually cooked well but I think the haddock I ate was a thirty year old recepie. Portions were too large and the atmosphere comfortable for the retired crowd. It was a shame because it could easily been so... More

Went here for dinner, upon entry it's more upscale and stuffy then the exterior would indicate. The customer base is...um..up there. Those under 60 will feel very out of place. Food was ok, if not a tad expensive. Service was slow and everything is very dated.

We have been to Schooners many times, but have not been there since March 2014. I took my 18 year old to dinner this Sunday. Even she said it was a horrible experience. I don't think they can stay in business with the way it is going at the moment. First: no hostess, one of the waitresses seated us. No... More
