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.

We visited here a couple of years ago and loved it. Coming back to PCB, we considered this to be a must-do!

Schooners is right on the beach. Our last visits were during the day and we really enjoyed the beach view from our table. However, this was an evening visit so no bikini views this time. It was a little cool for outside, but they had their heaters fired up so the temp was just right.

All four of us were hungry for shrimp so we each had the all-you-can-eat fried shrimp. Definitely not the usual for any of us, but like I said, we were hungry! We each had a different side so at least there was a little variety on the plates.

The shrimp came out pretty quickly...four plates piled high with golden brown shrimp...larger shrimp than what we expected and more than we expected. The batter on the shrimp was light and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. Yum! The three-cheese grits were awesome as were the black beans and rice.

We had great service here and the food was great. Since it was night we missed the beach ambiance and there wasn't a band playing. Still had a good time!

Schooners makes the point that it is the last locally owned beach bar on PCB. Regardless, the food is terrific and so is the service. Nothing better than to sit on the deck right on the beach, whether just having drinks or eating a great seafood dinner.

An outstanding location near Ft. Jefferson Park directly on the bright white beach. The Thai Wrapped Shrimp are delicious! Great drinks and always fabulous service with particular accolades to Sarah and Aaron!! Enjoy the beach and a memorable beach experience! Can't wait to get back and enjoy a Bloody Mary with the world's biggest olives!!!

Food was really good like always. They are very accommodating with a special request not on the menu. Service was fast and friendly. 2 diners ordered salads with added chicken. Neither noticed that there were less pieces, but the waiter did and brought out extra pieces for both. Beach view fun as well as the welcoming of the sunset.

We always go out to Schooners during the Lobster tournament and enjoy the atmosphere and food. There are a lot of activities going on including sand sculpting, live music, face painting, the lobster feast and of course the SCUBA divers weighing in the giant lobsters caught right offshore. The winning lobster weighed 10lbs. this year. He was a monster. What a blast. Don't miss out next year!
