My husband and I came to Tofino after the long weekend in November. We had tried the previous 2 nights to order seafood at other restaurants with no success. Several people recommended the Schooner to us, so we gave it a try. They did not disappoint. We ordered several kinds of the oyster menu options, all were outstanding! We then had crab and the thai seafood bowl. The meals were good in size and great in flavour. The suggested wine pairings were also good. The atmosphere was inviting and comfortable. Our waitress was very friendly and made sure that we were well served. I would definitely recommend.

Good food, very good portions and attentive service, but in the end ... you'll pay for it. The cost is pretty pricey, but again, the food & portion is better than other comparable places I've been to.

We struggled to find a restaurant in Tofino that had something to suit us all. The schooner was excellent! Something for everyone! Seems a little pricey at first but the choices, quality of food and service were well worth it. We ate there two nights running.

We arrived around noon and ordered within 10 minutes. Our food arrived just after one and the restaurant was not at all busy. On the other hand, the food was excellent. Four mains ordered and no one had any complaints about serving sizes or food prep. Presentation was also very fine. Seafood entrees were better than the steaks, but what would you expect in such a location--you could see the dock from the windows.

Had a great meal and the service was superb. Although a high end restaurant the atmosphere and service made us very comfortable
