We decided to try schooners this year on our vacation. They have all the same food as other "on the beach" restaurants. I got the baked flounder, it was kind of soupy and mushy. The atmosphere is fun, but I'd go eat somewhere else and come here for the drinks. Great view of the beach while you eat!

Crowded even in off season, but worth the wait. The waiter claimed that 3 varieties of fish were fresh daily, including the Haddock which I had. Main parking lot was also full.

Love this place. Food is just okay. We recommend if you are in the area, because there just are not many good food places in PCB. You come here for the beach, not the food.

We went on a Friday night, which is a busy time for eating out. There was 5 in our party, and we waited about 30 min for our table. It was gorgeous outside and we got drinks from the bar then sat at some outside tables to wait. There was some live music just getting started on the stage inside... More

We got there about an hour before sunset on a Sunday evening. The hostess allowed us to sit at a high top before our table was ready. When server came by and saw we had table pager she didn't want to take our drink order as we were waiting for a rail table. That is a table at the edge... More

We always come to Schooners for dinner when we are vacationing in PCB. You cannot beat the beach/sunset views that this place offers. The food is also consistently good. They have the best crab claws I have had in PCB.

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.
