We picked this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews when we were driving in the area and it did not disappoint. We were sat at a table at the corner of the back deck and had an excellent view of the ocean and the sun set. There was a band playing that night who were great and entertaining. The place... More

Fun locals place. Decent bands in the evenings. I like it on a Sunday afternoon for a late seafood lunch and then a cocktail on the beach waiting for the sunset.

We go to panama city every year and always eat at schooners!Always great service and food! I love the ribeye steak and fried shrimp and my wife loves the fried blue crab claws. Weekends they usually have a band going on! Parking gets a little challenging if you don't get their early.

Large portions and prices are VERY reasonable for what you get! The food and drinks are very good! I ate at Margaritaville the day before and the portions there were smaller and much more expensive! I would definitely return next time I visit PCB.

One of the few restaurants on the beach actually and it doesn't disappoint. The food is great and they always have live entertainment nightly. Our favorite time to go is for Lobsterfest in September. I am in love with the Jamaican Jerk Chicken sandwich. and don't even get me started on the hushpuppies and chowder...yummy!

This restaurant had a coastal family feel, located right on the beach. After dinner we walked out the back beach entrance and relaxed in Adirondack chairs. The service was fast, friendly and courteous. I had the crab claws off of the appetizer menu, they were delicious but I was surprised at how small they were, we later found out they... More

Location unfortunately doesn't make up for high prices and subpar bar food & service. But you pay this for incredible beach view, if sitting outside. Inside seating feels like any other bar.

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.
