probably good choice but there are several 'beach bars' with numerous screens and great beach views along the strip/strand. check them out and choose your favorite then sit back and enjoy.

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 of fresh Fried Oysters, Hushpuppies and icy cold beer blend perfectly with the salty breeze blowing in off the Gulf.
