Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine, Bar scene, Families with children, Large groups
Dining options: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Late Night, Takeout
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.

“Fish tacos”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Never tried fish tacos. Theirs were yummy. We had a drink in a souvenier cup that was tasty and everyone loved their food. My husband tried to make the crab stuffed shrimp.

“Fun, Fun, Fun!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We dined at Schooners for the first time while on a recent family vacation to PCB, and all I can say is that I don't know what took us so long. While, the food is not spectaular, the view, open-air dining, service, and entertainment makes up for whatever the food is lacking. I may have just chosen the wrong thing. (wings- sauce great, wings slimy). Drinks were great and we especially loved the take home plastic cups. Live band was amazing. Don't be afraid to take your children here in fear of a wild atmosphere. While I am sure on Spring Break and during certain periods i. e. late night could get a tad rowdy we ate there late evening and left about 9:30pm and our children had a blast, and it looked like the other children in other parties were having fun too. We WILL be back.

“Must-Go-To Restaurant in PCB”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I go to PCB almost every year, and I always look forward to eating a Schooners. The food is great, and the view is amazing. I always enjoy taking a walk on the beach before my meal comes. There are many amazing places to eat in PCB, but this is one of the best. A must-go-to place in Panama City Beach

“RIGHT ON THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

After years of visiting Panama City Beach, we finally went to Schooners. I now wonder, what took us so long. It is an open air restaurant with music and a great beach atmosphere. The staff was super friendly. The food was great even though we felt the prices were high. When visiting PCB, make sure you stop in at Schooners. I know we will go back!

“Old Fashioned Fun on the Beach of PCB!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Thiis is a fun place to go on the quieter side of PCB for lunch and it is on the water so people can hang out around the area and swim and play volleyball or swim too. We always like to find a place to eat that is right on the beach and there are fewer of these around these days since condos are now everywhere.

We ordered crab claws for appetizers and a grilled grouper basket for the main course and shared. We enjoyed some adult beverages as well.

We will go back but more for the view than the food though it was good. The service was very good. We can see where this would be a fun place for older teens and young adults to hang out in the evening but we just went for lunch as don't really love all the crowds.

Go for the old-fashioned feel of the bar/grill on the beach and you'll enjoy it!
