Description: There's nothing "fancy" about Schooners cuisine; it is simple, fresh and perfect. No sauces cover the unbeatable flavor of truly fresh Grouper sizzled to perfection on the Schooners grill. A platter of fresh Fried Oysters, Hushpuppies and icy cold beer blend perfectly with the salty breeze blowing in off the Gulf.

“Great atmosphere and view!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Loved our dinner at schooners. We were seated at a high top table by on the porch overlooking the ocean. There were gas fireplace/ heaters scattered throughout which set a really nice atmosphere. The music was at a perfect volume. Service was great.

I had the fish tacos which were good, but tried a bite of my husbands entree- shrimp and grits- I was so jealous! The shrimp and grits has an amazing sauce!

My favorite meal in pcb.

“Fantastic food and even better prices!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The staff are fabulous and the food is excellent. Always quick service and the prices are great. The restaurant sits right on the beach and day or night, any season, it's a great place to eat. Wonderful live bands as well.

“PNO (Parents Night Out)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of Schooners in PCB. We always recommend this place to family and friends. For a grouper sandwhich it's good, but I find I have to disagree with the guy below... I choose Sharky's for the grouper. PNO at Schooners.. This occasion was a night out without the kids, so we got to relax, sit back and watch the silly obnoxious yet friendly dancers, enjoy a martini or two and 3 plates of crab claws. Their crab claws are excellent!! Love the bread that comes with it too! Fun times!

ONLY COMPLAINT ((( Stop closing at 10pm )))

“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This is the first place we ate at when we arrived to PCB. It is a really neat place. If you don't like eating next to someone in a swimsuit this will not be the place for you. For me I enjoyed the atmosphere. It was a great laid back comfortable place. You can look at the ocean and feel the ocean breeze while you eat. The fish sandwich was great. I hope to come back soon.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

During our 5 days in PCB we ate there 2 times and both times were great! The service was good and the food didn’t disappoint. The shrimp are large and very tasty and the burgers are great as well! Loved being able to eat right on the beach.
