We have been to Schooners many times, but have not been there since March 2014. I took my 18 year old to dinner this Sunday. Even she said it was a horrible experience. I don't think they can stay in business with the way it is going at the moment. First: no hostess, one of the waitresses seated us. No... More

Stopped in at Schooners before a concert on 6/21/14. From the outside it doesn't look like much,I thought it was a bar type restaurant. It is casual. The menu has lots of fish entree's and Mahi Mahi was one of the specials which is what my husband ordered. He said it was delicious, and the fact that it was under... More

If your definition of brunch includes barely reheated leftovers paired with cold eggs, you're in luck. Gray, fatty prime rib swimming in a pool of greasy broth, unidentifiable fish/ chicken pieces in some sort of sauce, cold hard roasted potatoes, overcooked flat slabs of scrambled eggs full of small black chunks of something that never got cleaned out of the...

We had not been here in a few years as we live out of town. We were going to a concert at CMAC at 7 and made reservations for 5 pm. They assured me on the phone we would have plenty of time. We were seated immediately and received prompt service from our server. Two of us had the Chicken... More

Went with family eight people for the Easter buffet. When my wife went to pick up her plate at the buffet it was filthy . I don't mean just dirty it still had dryed food on it. It took looking over three more plates to find an acceptable one. Next came the salad bar. The iceberg lettuce wilted and looked... More

We ate there 5 years ago and didn't care for it. But it is close to us, so we gave it another chance. There was nothing bad about it, but there are several better places; so I don't expect to go back.

Excellent food, wonderful staff, friendly atmosphere. I eat here with family and friends often. The food is always terrific, the staff are friendly and it is always a comfortable, relaxed meal. I highly recommend it.

I was sorry to read the other negative reviews about Schooners. My family loves it and they serve the best chicken and artichokes French around. Ignore the décor, and be prepared for a delicious homestyle meal.

I use trip advisor all the time prior to selecting a restaurant and I am baffled by folks who had a bad meal or bad experience while at Schooners. I travel a lot and even abroad and I found this restaurant to be one of my best experiences. The hostess was so polite and asked me if I would like... More
