Food was excellent and the view was even better. Service was good as well. A must when visiting Panama City Beach.

Best place on the east side of Pananma city beach. Great environment, great service, and great view of the gulf. Ask for Larry. He's the best

We have been to lots of restaurants around PCB and this one I would consider middle of the road. It's good but not excellent. Sometimes they have bands playing so loud, you can't hear each other talking. This restaurant has some outdoor seating that's nice.

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.
