Schooners was recomended by a local resident to have a nice dinner. Didn't happen. We were ignored for 10+ minutes. The web menu still shows steaks available but we were told they no longer serve them. The fried items were greasy and overly salty. Most...More

I was completely amazed by the view from our seat. Then the food came along. The cheese curds were yummy! Margarita was awesome and the shrimp was the best I’ve ever had! So glad we stopped here. We will be back again!

Even though the weather was really cold, we wanted to experience a sunset at Schooners & watch the cannon go off. And, we weren't at all disappointed. The wine & beers were really cold, and the shrimp & french fries were DELICIOUS! Can't go wrong...More

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.
