This place is everything it is advertised to be. While other places have really good sunset spots this is the best. Everything about this place lives up to its hype. It's called the last local bar and I'm not sure because it's near the end...More

Didn't have items on their special menu, drinks were terrible. Was cold and windy in the place. Asked us to hurry and eat and leave. A special party was scheduled. Rude..Maybe they just stay remodeling.

Went there New Years Eve for an early Dinner. Service was exceptional and food was great. Drinks were certainly a plus. They have the best view of the Sun Sets on the Beach. Always a Favorite place.

We love Schooner's. The food is always good, service is usually equally as good and the view is great! Would recommend giving them a try.

The food was excellent and hot a large amount for a good price. Clean restaurant, service was excellent. Strongly suggest getting there early for dinner or expect a lengthy wait.

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.

Salty Sue's is at the other end of the road towards Fort Walton Beach and it's excellent too.

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.
