I ordered the shrimp Alfredo flat bread (with bacon)..yummmm. My husband had the grouper sandwich. Both of us opted for the gouda cheese with Tesso (type of ham) grits as a side..very unusual and...

Great seafood and amazing sunset views. At sunset, they fire off a small cannon which is fun for kids.

This type of casual, on the beach dining was what our family was looking for with dinner. The scenery and restaurant style was perfect. There are not too many of this type of place left in Panama City amongst the hotels and condos. The food was mostly seafood and good, but prices were a bit high for the quality, although... More

Schooner's has a perfect location on the beach with outdoor seating to watch the sunset. Each evening, a cannon is sounded just as the sun sets and music plays. It's kind of a cool tradition. Schooner's is a fun atmosphere and has good food as well. Two of our friends need gluten free options. The server and kitchen staff were... More

Have eaten here more than once for lunch. There is a lunch special every weekday. You can eat inside or on the outer area which has windows that open if warm and/or heaters if it is cool. Great view of the beach.

We always enjoy the food and sunset celebration each night. Every trip to PCB includes at least visiting Schooners once. We enjoy their burgers, music and views.

Had a great time at Schooners, adults sat inside for apps and drinks while kids body surfed and played beach volleyball within view. Loved recognition of the sunset, great view from beach side Schooners. Food and drinks fresh and tasty too!

Went for dinner with a group of 20 and they could seat us fairly quickly. Menu is predominately seafood other than a burger, jerk chicken sandwich or salads. Burger is good, as were fries. Fun drink menu with a ton of options. Prices were ok too. Fun thing is a "cannon" that goes off at sunset. There is plenty of... More

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.
