Love this restaurant! The food is awesome. The view of the beach is great and the wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Fun place to enjoy beach life! Love their web cam as I can always tune in to enjoy the beach once I have returned home!

The local reviews and recommendations may have set the bar high. The food was ok, just average. Had a crab cake, that did not seem to be made with fresh crab. Overall, not the worst food I have had, but not close to the best either. Service was slow and the seats are very close with very little room to... More

Great food, great service, and a great view!!! Most everyone with me got fish tacos and they said they were great. I got the Schooner burger and it was great. The Fries are awesome too. We will definitely make this a place we eat at every time we come to the beach!

Our family went while on vacation. The food was good and the view of the beach was awesome. The only thing is no air conditioning, so if it's hot outside, it's hot in the restaurant. Go at sunset!

My husband and I are always looking for a great meal when traveling. Who isn't? We saw Schooners advertised in the local attractions book and thought we would give it a try. Sooo happy we did! We made our way to a table overlooking the beautiful beaches of Panama City Beach, a beautiful sunshine day with a constant breeze blowing... More

My cousins and our families have met in Panama City Beach for a reunion for the last few years and each year the "girls" get together for a Friday evening out at Schooners. The band is good and the service is excellent considering the size of the crowds in this place during the summer. There is usually a long wait... More

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.

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.
