Great Seafood in Hull

Except for a wait to be seated and parking issues in the summer, it's great for a family gathering. Many choices and very good food.

Fresh fish but VERY TIRED surroundings- would NOT bring someone from out of town. The service is OK, the chowder and Fisheman's platter are good as well as the Greek salad.

When I asked my cousin who lives in Hull where we could go for good clam chowder, she recommended Schooners. I'm so glad she did because it was the BEST clam chowder I've ever had, seriously. It's thick, creamy and loaded with clams. My sister's family came here as well and they ordered the lobster rolls and said they were... More

We went on a cold windy stormy day. It was full at the bar side and warm while we looked out over the stormy sea on shore drive. A nice waitress served us caesar salad warm bread with real butter, ravioli and seafood medly. Everything delicious and prices very reasonable. Would go back.

Schooner's is one of my favorites. I have never had a bad meal there. The menu has great variety and the cost is reasonable. The seafood is especially good....very fresh, light non-greasy batter on the fried food with a choice of onion rings or french fries. My grandchildren can always find something they like also.....be it pizza or burgers, etc.

Good chowder, fisherman's platter typical in that it was deep fried and generous. Coleslaw was better than average.
