Delighted that my sister suggested this place for our Sunday breakfast. Upon arrival, we were told the wait would be 2 hours. My sister had already warned me about the wait, so before we sat out in the courtyard, we ordered a bottle of champagne on ice and some orange juice. She said, "This is part of the overall experience."... More

Omelettes, "the mess" and French toast were awesome. The views of the harbor can't be beat. The service was good and and prices were fair. Would definitely eat here again.

If you decide to go on a sunny weekend day, go early! If you can't go early, relax while watching the water and/or drinking champagne or beer. The food is great.

I went here because it had a high rating and it was on the bay. I wasn't shocked about the overpriced beer but was unimpressed by the service. I asked if the crab Louie salad was made a particular way and the waitress said yes to only discover she had no idea what I was talking about because it wasn't... More

Schooner or Later has lots of good things going for it, but if you're like me and hate to wait, make your visit during the week - or even skip it. The food and the view is just as good on weekdays, and you won't starve while you wait what seems like forever to have brunch. The last weekend I... More

On weekends the wait can be 1.5hrs. But have a fabulous bloody Mary while you wait and the food is worth it. Split the crab and avocado eggs Benedict and crab cheese melt with someone. Great harbor view and good people watching. Ok to bring your dog's for outside seating.

Sitting outdoors on the marina is so relaxing. Couple that with a great breakfast and the day is near perfect. Love all the egg dishes and particularly the fresh salsa. They are always pretty busy and so there might be a wait. Simply grab a Bloody Mary and the wait will be not so bad. As you sit waiting the... More
