Went for a Sunday afternoon lunch. They had a buffet which we all ended up having. To begin with there was only one waitress for the entire place. She was the bartender, waitress, hostess and cashier. I think there was a chef out back. Drinks- no Chardonnay. Come on the world's most basic wine you do not have. Buffet was... More

I live close to a touristy area where many of the old standby type restaurants have switched to an attempt at fine dining. A few get it right, but many just start calling flavored mayonnaise "aioli," raise the prices and are done with it. I'm happy to say Schooners hasn't gone the route of fancy food and fancier rates. It... More

This is the perfect small town restaurant. The food is surprisingly very good, and the prices are affordable! We like to go there often! A should try restaurant if you haven't been there.

The restaurant was able to accommodate my take out request 30 minutes before closing. The bisque and fish fry's were tasty and served the purpose for a late night meal in our hotel.

The restaurant is tastefully decorated on the inside. From the outside decor I thought it was going to be pricey. Perhaps they are for dinner, but lunch prices were very reasonable. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. My rueben sandwich was very good, and they garnished my plate with a slice of watermelon. I thought that was a nice touch.

Very friendly staff. Very limited, but good, salad bar. Excellent broiled haddock. Fried seafood platter had great tasting haddock, but average fried shrimp, fried scallops and fried crab cake. Rough neighborhood.

I was craving French Onion Soup, and I couldn't have asked for better. My companion enjoyed the vegetable soup, saying it wasn't too salty and there was even an artichoke in it. The atmosphere was nice, with a seaside feel, and the service was excellent.

Over the years Schooners has had its up and downs. About a year ago, based on the recommendation by a friend, we tried it and found it's definitely up. We have had dinner and lunch there many times over the past year, and found that the food is consistently good, and prices are very affordable. There is a good variety... More

Schooners is a family style neighborhood restaurant with lots of seating, a fireplace and free wi-fi. It features soups, salads, sandwiches and burgers. It has a salad bar and a bar bar (full). There are daily specials. I had the fish fry. The golden beer-battered haddock came out perfectly cooked and was white and nicely flakey inside. It was laying... More

I went with 8 Sr Ladies for lunch. Several had the "Chicken and Biscuits Special" and said it was excellent. I had the fish and ordered the sweet potato fries with it. Best I've had in a long while. Service was great and it was quiet enough so we could chat. No complaints from any of us and we ALL... More
