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 ... Read more
of fresh Fried Oysters, Hushpuppies and icy cold beer blend perfectly with the salty breeze blowing in off the Gulf. Every morning, Schooners restaurant in Panama City Beach chefs buy fresh local seafood from local boat captains and, by lunch time, they have created a menu of daily specials which make the most of the fresh seafood and fresh local produce. There is a decidedly "Southern" flavor to the menu... Gumbos and Blackened dishes from New Orleans. Hushpuppies from the Mississippi Gulf Coast... succulent Grilled Shrimp and Tomato Greek salads "stolen" from friends and restaurant legends at Capt. Anderson's restaurant. Homemade Key Lime Pie and fresh baked bread from local pastry chefs. It is a magical mixture that keeps locals coming back for more.

Local from Panama City Beach

Great open air beach restaurant. Although my wife didn’t like the chicken, I was there for lobster fest and WOW it was the best day of my life. $30 all you can eat.

I have been to this bar/restaurant many times. It has a nice breezy atmosphere and good food. The service is OK. The greatest thing about this bar is the location. You can go out the back and step right onto the beach. If you sit toward the back you can hear the swish swish of the beach. They do have some good entertainment as well. The tropical beachy atmosphere makes this place a great beach place to go!

Local from Panama City

Beach bar and restaurant. No shirt and shoes requited. The kind of place you can have lunch in your bikini. We spend the day on the beach out front and get our drinks from here. The daily sunset celebration is a cool thing. Live music and events per the schedule. Live web cam is a good one to check.

Love this place. It was my favorite local beach club when I lived there 93-95 and it's my go-to place when I make a yearly visit. AND, I recently received excellent customer service from Molly and Jennifer in getting me a bright orange Schooners shirt to replace one my brother had worn down to rag status. It was the second one he had worn to pieces, but I hit a snag when they didn't have any in stock and weren't looking to stock that particular color any longer. Well, Molly worked with managers/Jennifer and got another order placed and then went out of her way to get that in the mail to me here in Northern Virginia. My brother was thrilled as was I. Again, Molly really went the extra mile to keep me updated with the progress and not even charging me to mail it to my house can't be beat!!
Plus, their food rocks, the view is great and it really is an awesome place to hang out!!
If you're thinking about visiting the place, stop thinking and just do it! You won't be sorry!!

Great local hang out located on the beach. Enjoy a variety of food and music. Food is usual fare but the atmosphere is fun and friendly and the sunsets are spectacular.

Schooners is local treasure that's right next door to Seychelles. It's a great place have a casual meal or drinks while taking in the great views. You can also get food or drinks to enjoy while relaxing by the pool or hanging out on the beach on the padded wooden beach chairs and umbrella we provide to all our guests. Schooners also has live music several nights a week. Our favorite meal there is a the grouper sandwich with french fries.

One of the original beach clubs, where the locals come to dance, Schooners offers live music and casual fare. Lunch and dinner, or cocktails while the sun goes down all can be enjoyed here.

This place can be fun. They have a live band. It's open to the beach and the food is pretty good. It's very popular so expect a horribly long wait during peak times. Parking is also a nightmare. Also, since they play live music, it can be very loud.

Go for the grouper, stay for the sunset. This is a great place to go when you just want to hang out at the beach. You can also check out their live beach cams now, or stand in front of them and wave to your jealous friends back home!

This is a fun place with a great patio bar and the best grouper sand which on the beach. They shoot off a cannon everyday at sunrise. Live bands at night with adult atmosphere.

Walk out of Nautical Watch B-9 boardwalk (VRBO 434505) onto the BEACH and turn left along the beach.
Walk directly into Schooners from the beach.
Don't open any doors- just walk directly from the beach onto Schooners beach deck.
Live, laid back, music year round, oysters, bar. What more do you want?
Walk peacefully along the beach back to Nautical Watch B-9.
Really doesn't get much more relaxing than this.
Oh yeah- they have really good food.
The last local place
