My family of 10 ate here after I saw it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and insisted that we go and try The Mess. This dish was great! We also had the crab and avocado benedict (good), fish and chips (average), mimosa (good)! We didn't have too long of a wait and even if we did, the kids enjoyed watching... More

Like every popular brunch joint on earth, Schooner or Later has quite the wait time for Sunday morning. Especially if you're an idiot like me and arrive right at 10 AM with no res. But that's okay, there's a nice little bar and cafe to keep you preoccupied while you wait, plus fun pic opportunities! We waited about 35-45 minutes... More

Went for breakfast with family. The food was fantastic. I highly recommend the the Mess and the Crab and Avocado Benedict. The view from the patio is very nice. It's next to a harbor full of boats. The service was average. However, because we had two small children with us, we called ahead of time to find out if there... More

Don't get me wrong, I like this place. Location is awesome. Food is pretty good. And on the right day, good weather, it's pretty wonderful to sit out here look at the boats. I only gave it three stars because of the frustration level of waiting for your table. Sometimes the wait can be over an hour and 1/2. If... More

Brought the extended family here to finish up our trip to Disneyland and Southern California. Some locals said we had to try out this restaurant. We had a very large party, 18 people, and they never blinked and we received excellent service. Our waitress, I wish I could remember her name, was one of the best we have ever had.... More

My wife and I joined with very good neighbor/friends for lunch at the Schooner or Later! Excellent casual, outdoor dining! The sun was quite bright, with a clear sky, that made for a pleasant lunch in the Long Beach area Marina. A nice lager beer accompanied by a fried fish pieces made my meal very filling and quite tasty! All... More

On first day in Long Beach we got a marina-side table on a beautiful day. Great location, busy, fun setting. Mushroom burger could not be improved upon, large portions, well-seasoned, fresh mushrooms, cheese...and onion rings a good choice. My daughter got a bacon burger with fries. Excellent all around...including wait staff and busers.

I've been coming here ever since I was a kid (1970s), when this place was just a modest little diner for sailors, called the Little Ship's Galley. Now it has expanded to be a popular place especially on weekends, with a large outdoor eating area, that seems to be pretty hip these days judging by some of the people, yet... More

During a recent business trip, my collegaues from the area told me I had to visit Schooner or Later. It was some of the best breakfast I've had in a long time. We went right at open, and the overall experience was fantastic. The three of us ordered different things and were all very happy. The service was quick, attentive... More
