Location and views are spectacular! Service was also very good. Wait time was minimal for as busy as they were. Food wasn't anything special. However, the eating on the beach feel can't be beat!

We went with friends for Sunday Brunch. It was quite good and all one can eat. The views are beautiful looking at the beach and gulf. Often at night they have a band playing that is most enjoyable to listento.

There is sand for children to play. Also there is a volleyball court. No specific playground.

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.
