You can dine early, watch the sun melt away and enjoy some of the best bar food at the beach. If you want to make an evening of it, come a little later, dust off your dancing shoes and enjoy one of the best bands from up and down the east coast. Schooners is just like its t-shirt says "The...

We enjoyed a late lunch at Schooners right after it reopened for the season. The grouper sandwich and stuffed flounder were amazing! My son and I really enjoyed the smoked Gouda grits that we chose as a side! They were the creamiest grits we have had in PCB. The view of the gulf is not bad either! As it was... More

We ate here last night and had a great experience. The food was delicious. The atmosphere even better. Our server, Ray, was attentive and took good care of us. The restaurant is right on the beach. While we waited for food, we went outside and took pictures, witnessed a marriage proposal and watched our girls dance in the sunset. Highly... More

Made our usual visit to Schooners. Had great food. Our waitress Franzi, did a great job. Made sure our drinks were full and took great care of us. She was super friendly even with how busy she was. The live music was great and we love the torches. Thank Scponers!

With great apprehension we went out for dinner around 6:30 on a Friday evening. Surprisingly we didn't have a wait, and were seated immediately. The beer selection is pretty limited, but they do have local Grayton beers available. I had the baked flounder with grits. It's hands down one of the best seafood dinners I've had, and could've easily served... 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.
