This bar was well hidden ... we drove around the building to finally see the neon in the window on the third side that we saw. Don't know why they hide it so well ... use your GPS, and when it says you're there, look for it. I had a burger & fries, along with a Goose Island IPA. All... More

Always liked the food and service at this joint. It's bar food, but then I really like bar food. Just seems so American. The last couple times I was there, the music was just high decibel-- and I love rock and roll. But when you have to shout to be heard, it diminishes the fun. Great value. Polite and helpful... More

I have had lunch and dinner twice at this restaurant during a visit to my family in Ridgecrest, California. it's usually pretty full during dinner which indicates it's a popular place for the locals. The food and service are excellent...lunch especially. I have visited this restaurant during all of my trips to Ridgecrest and have never had a bad experience.

Ordered garlic and Parmesan chicken tenders and a pizza. Pretty easy to do right? Nope. Both were disgusting. The tenders didn't even taste like chicken. They tasted like microwaved tenders. The pizza was all cheese. I don't think there was any sauce on it. It tasted like school lunch pizza. Stay away unless you are really drunk. Maybe then it's... More

Arriving in Ridgecrest rather late, I ventured to Schooners by default as almost everywhere else in this part of town appears to close at 9.00pm! I'm pleased about this though, as Schooners was exactly what I was looking for - great beer selection and good food. I tried a couple of beers (just 2, honestly) from an extensive range of... More

The food, drinks, and service here are always great! The food and drink servings are plentiful so bring your appetite and thirst. I think this is the best place to gather with friends for food,drinks and a great atmosphere.

Really neat layout - great service and HUGE beer gauntlets :) Best beer variety on tap and the only place busy enough to cycle through the kegs to keep them fresh. Here on business with coworkers? No brainer - come here. They also had food specials like Monday $1 sliders that were pretty bomb.

This is a good restaurant with good food. It's always busy so don't go if you're in a hurry. The lunch is a great deal and the sliders are amazing.

Wow. I've really liked this place a lot in the past. Food is good. Great lunch fare. Good service. The volume has been creeping up and it means you literally have to shout to be hard across the table. Mentioned to server, who didn't acknowledge. Mentioned it at a party Saturday, and got total agreement that they'd given up on... More

I have visited this restaurant three times in the last couple weeks and it has been fantastic every time. You get excellent food great portions at a very reasonable price. The staff is friendly and provides great customer care even when completely packed. I am still amazed at the quantity and quality of food you get for such a great... More
