Calamari was absolutely the best I have ever had on the beach . The drinks were nice and strong, the burgers are like they should be and their specialty salads are addictive! A beach restaurant that actually has great food and great drinks.

View of the ocean from the outside seating is amazing. We went during the off-season (Mid-April) so I am interested to how everything is during peak season. There were volleyball areas and lots of places for live music, but none of that was being used...More

probably good choice but there are several 'beach bars' with numerous screens and great beach views along the strip/strand. check them out and choose your favorite then sit back and enjoy.

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.
