We loved everything we ate, or drank, here! The clam chowder is to die for; as was the Fisherman's Net meal on the dinner menu. This place can go from breakfast casual to dinner divine, and you'll feel like you're in a different place each time. Very friendly, helpful, bar and restaurant staff. The views are beautiful too!

With a view window on Monterey Bay and the magical reflections of sunset, the setting could not have been better for this wonderful dinner at Schooners. The food was excellent and the server, Steve, lifted the experience a step above. He was personable, knowledgeable, and accommodating. When my husband wanted only one item from a charcuterie board, Steve, without hesitation offered to have a dish made up featuring the single item. We all had fish - all served beautifully and delicious - and we all agreed that the clam chowder was among the best we'd ever had.

Ambiance was perfect with gorgeous water views event at night. The food was amazing! I had the nightly special which was a very flavorful halibut dish. Service was top notch and Steve, our server was incredibly knowledgeable.

This is a great restaurant. The food was above average and the views of the bay and harbor are wonderful. Be sure and ask for a bayview window, well worth the visit. Food is good although a bit expensive
