Description: 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.

Super casual restaurant/bar where you have the choice of open air dining on the beach, or the inside restaurant. Food is typical of the area, might be a bit pricey for quantity. It is all worth it, though when you consider the beachside dining bonus. Very scenic, and open year round. I love the market price crab claws.

Schooners is a must when visiting the beach! The food is amazing. We have never ordered anything that we didn't love. Go right before sunset and you'll get a surprise that is unique to Schooners when the sun touches the water. Love Love Love it!

Schooners has been burned and changed hands several times but this is one place you need to stop into if nothing than more for a drink. At sunset, Schooners fires of a cannon with a large boom so be ready. While mostly a bar, they serve lots of food and do a very good job with it. Things like Oysters, Shrimp, Cra are all excellent here and if you stick around you can hear live music from a band who usually plays so there is night time entertainment also. Check out the last local beach bar.

We usually save money by staying in and cooking most nights at the condo we rent. Once or twice a week we'll splurge and eat out. This year we decided to eat out the last night of our stay because we were busy doing laundry and packing. We decided to walk next door to the local beach bar that shoots off the canon at sunset every night. It seems to always be packed for the dinner hour, so we figured people either liked the convenience (you can walk in from the beach), or the food was great. It was all that AND more. Great food, fast seating and efficient service. We sent our tweens down to get in line for a table because there were crowds waiting outside. We were seated within 15 minutes! We all ordered burgers from the menu - the portions were large and dee-lish! We were so impressed with this little bar next door that we just might have to make it a regular stop! For what we got, we felt the prices were reasonable. I don't know if I can recommend anything besides the sandwich menu, but I will tell you that what we had was spectacular. Schooners rocks!
