    Dining at Schooners was a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delectable and everyone in my family was so happy with what they ordered. We were lucky enough to have a direct view of the ocean and were greeted by several otters and seals. This was an outstanding experience. Thank you, Schooners.

    We enjoyed our lunch very much! Our lunch was delicious and the service was excellent! The Seafood Tostada, the Fish & Chips, and the Lobster Sandwich were all outstanding choices!

    I have had luncheon on the terrace at Schooners many times with up to 8 family members. The food is consistently fresh and delicious. The servers and wait staff are well trained, friendly and prompt in meeting the needs at my table. This view is absolutely gorgeous rain or shine and I’ve been there on blustery days. Choose the fresh seafood when you can as it is right out of the bay!

    Great views of the bay. The tempura shrimp and shrimp cocktails were very good. The scallops were amazing as was the wagyu steak. The bolognese was just ok. Great service! We’ll be back.
