Worth the price of admission. Feels like you're sitting on the ocean. Tons of seals, boats, kayakers meandering by.

Schooners is a great place for dinner, snacks or cocktails. Nice martini and wine list and good food. they do have a bar/snack menu, so if they don't present it, ask for it.

As a local we love coming here. They have the greatest views of the Monterey Bay and service that matches. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner this is our go to restaurant.

We spent several nights at the hotel with our adult children and eating here at lunch and dinner. Would definitely recommend it if you are in the area and want a nice meal. Soothing atmosphere, great service, good food.

First of all the service is a little slow. Second my dad has very brittle Celiac disease. They took good care of him. Third they have the Mud pie. Which is the best dessert in Monterrey. Last they have good eggs.

Masha G is to be commended for the excellent service she provided. She was attentive, kind and a good sport. I arrived very hungry but decided to make do with appetizers as anything more would have been too much that late at night. I had the artichoke chowder and the calamari. I always order the latter when it's on offer... More

After a day of exploring Cannery Row, we stopped in to rest our feet a have drinks and snacks. We had Calamari and a cold seafood platter with signature cocktails to wash it down. The service was fast and friendly and the food was wonderful.

We enjoyed everything we ordered. The fish special was cooked well. The texture and taste was not sacrificed by the seasoning or method of cooking. The artichoke cream and clam chowder was great.

When I called to make a reservation I requested a table by the window if possible. It was possible! And things just got better from there. The clam chowder was the best I have ever had. The Sole as a main course was also very good. The wait staff was top notch and there was lots of them to look... More
