We went to Schooners for dinner. I did not like the entree I got. The waiter saw me make a face and was adamant on getting me new food. I don't like to complain ( I've seen Waiting) I opted for a salad and soup....More

Schooner's is a really popular place! We waited 90+ minutes, and I think those that came after us waited longer, but the food was worth it, and you eat right ON the beach! We ate a variety of items, and everything was good.

We stopped by last week to eat lunch while waiting on family members to come back from a deep sea trip. Despite the crowd, we were seated quickly. The waitress was very polite and attentive. I ordered a seafood platter and you could tell that...More

This restaurant is a must visit every trip to the beach. The location of this place is perfect, they call themselves "the last local beach club". It's not really a club, maybe it used to be. I love getting a table right on the beach....More

Food was delicious, and the atmosphere was fun. I hadn't realized it was more of a crowded bar kind of atmostphere until we got there, so I was really thankful when they sat me and my family (including my 7 year old son) at a...More

Response from Matthew H | Reviewed this property |
During the season (March-Oct.) there is typically a band every night. The Schooners website is the best place to find the entertainment dates.
When I ate here in Oct. 2014 they had a lobster menu, and I got the Lobster Mac N Cheese. Was wondering if they have that on the menu now? Will be there next week.

Sorry for the delay in responding, but I'm not sure if they had what you are asking about on the menu. I suggest you go to their website and view the menu. I caution you tho, it may not be a current menu. The best would be... More

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.
