Had a good time...

Been here twice in the last couple of months. Didn't expect too much on the first visit, went there to meet a couple of friends. What a pleasant surprise, we expected this place to be a beer joint hang-out for the kids attending CNU. Instead we found some really good, freshly prepared food. The... read more

Not sure what the deal was tonight but it was the worst service I have ever had. My food was terrible and instead of getting a manager or offering something else the server just said 'oh' and I paid 16 dollars for a side of sweet potato fries, because I didn't eat my disgusting crab cake sandwich. I then called... More

We were at CNU for graduation last weekend and needed a place to take the moms for Mother's Day brunch. Who woulda thought of Schooner's? Our kids of course! Glad they did! The staff handled all 11 of us without a problem. The food came out together without the mix of breakfast and lunch items throwing anything off. This isn't... More

Tried to call in a order using there online menu. Just to be told its outdated. If your going to post a menu online it should be correct. You just lost our business.

Very convenient to the Mariners Museum. It is definitely a local watering hole for CNU. The service was good and the food was a great value for the money. They also had good beer specials. I was a little disappointed in my burger, but my wife's chicken salad sandwich was excellent.

It's on the menu but for two consecutive weeks in a row at lunch they have not had this item... they state they are out of it. You can order a tuna steak, or a tuna sandwich.... the sandwich is tuna with lettuce. The week before last the waitress told us they had run out of wasabi so they couldn't... More

I like Schooners. I like it more during the day and early evening before the students come in to play. It can be quiet enough for a business lunch or quiet lunch between appointments. Good pub-like menu, good drinks, good selection of beers.

Loved the wings. Was busy after a game at CNU, but the staff did the best they could when it was inundated.

Bad Service, WORSE FOOD, Unacommidating management. DO NOT GO THERE, only thing halfway decent is the the beer and liquor, perhaps because all they have to do is put it in a glass. It's hard for them to screw that up too.
