We had a long wait which we were told about in advance and their time estimate was right on. The restaurant was open air but very comfortable with the ocean breeze and fans.

We decided to try this place and it was well worth it. The location is right on the beach and when we went it was an open air restaurant cooled by tons of ceiling fans. We both ordered hamburgers which were 10 oz and very tasty. My son had the kids shrimp which he also loved. Our waitress was prompt... More

The view by the water is gorgeous! We waited about 30 mins or so. Kids can go play while waiting on the food. And last but not least food was delicious!

This place is just perfect! You can't beat the view of the beach while enjoying delicious food and fantastic service. Definitely the firing of the cannon at sunset is enjoyed by all ages! This place is at the top of our list to visit.

Let me start out by saying that the location is beautiful, the music was decent, but that's where it ends. I ordered the crab cakes with mango salsa, while my mother opted for a grilled chicken salad, we also ordered a appetizer of onion rings. The onion were delicious and HUGE while being piping hot. When our actual food arrived... More

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.
