Schooners was crazy busy, but they get people in and out. The staff is extremely friendly and the drinks and food were delicious. The hamburger I had was amazing, the tuna dip was yummy, and my husband's fish sandwich looked good! Would definitely go back!

Was not impressed this visit. We are there in October and we're impressed by the amount and quality of food. We just ate there last week (aug) and the portions and quality has shrank. Service was also pretty slow. We won't go on our next...More

This is not just one of those hyped beach side restaurants. It has the look, feel and vibe that should be part of every beach vacation. The food is fantastic! It's an open air setting that's very comfortable. They usually have live music. The beach...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.
