Description: Located in picturesque Cayucos, California, Schooners has been offering guests an unforgettable dining experience since it opened in 1993. Embracing a nautical theme reminiscent of the early history of the Central Coast sailors and fishermen, Schooners boasts the best ocean views of any restaurant in the area. Gaze into the deep blue while enjoying one of our signature cocktails, or perhaps some of our famous calamari strips. Schooners menu features fresh seafood and steaks, prepared thoughtfully by Chef Beto Gonzalez. Take time to stop in, take a look and say hello; chances are you'll find yourself wanting to indulge in our house specialty Bloody Mary, our fresh seafood, and some lively conversation with our local patrons. Hope to see you soon!

“Love this place”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We go all the time. We get the steamers and ahi rolls. Served with sourdough bread it rocks. I advise to go early or reserve a spot up top it's small an fills up quick.

“yummy calamari”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I had a great calamari app with my daughter here. Beautiful on the deck- thanks for the heaters. But also glad I had a jacket.
Had the salmon Caesar salad- great.
Daughter had chicken pesto fettucini and seemed to love it- none left when we finished our meal!

Lots of families, and some groups on young people. I say always ask to sit up high, or in the bar, so you have a view. This bar outside eating really is spectacular. Particularly at sunset.

schooners is a standard fallback when we want comfort food and a great atmosphere.

“Good restaurant, ocean view”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We have eaten at Schooners before and it is our first choice when we are in Cayucos. We like to eat on the upstairs outdoor deck. Ocean view, heaters to keep you warm. There is also a small and lively bar. Service was great. The food is good, perhaps not the highest gourmet quality, but very good. We had the calamari steak--a huge portion! (enough for 2 in our case). The setting is rustic and interesting. We love Schooners Wharf and hope to return.
