Over the years Schooners has had its up and downs. About a year ago, based on the recommendation by a friend, we tried it and found it's definitely up. We have had dinner and lunch there many times over the past year, and found that the food is consistently good, and prices are very affordable. There is a good variety... More

Schooners is a family style neighborhood restaurant with lots of seating, a fireplace and free wi-fi. It features soups, salads, sandwiches and burgers. It has a salad bar and a bar bar (full). There are daily specials. I had the fish fry. The golden beer-battered haddock came out perfectly cooked and was white and nicely flakey inside. It was laying... More

I went with 8 Sr Ladies for lunch. Several had the "Chicken and Biscuits Special" and said it was excellent. I had the fish and ordered the sweet potato fries with it. Best I've had in a long while. Service was great and it was quiet enough so we could chat. No complaints from any of us and we ALL... More

My son picked this restaurant for his birthday dinner with my husband and his wife. We each had something different. I had the blackened salmon which was incredible! Also a side of lobster mac and cheese also incredible! My son had the fishermen's platter with scallops as big as my fist! Delishous the shrimp were so very tender and the... More

Schooners has always been a place that catered to an older (> 50) crowd. The food use to be very good at a reasonable price. However, this place has gone down hill significantly. The service is so-so, the food is barely acceptable and the salad bar is a joke. We will not be back.

lunch buffet was offered but decided to eat light and just ordered soup of the day (chicken noodle) which was filled with chicken (not just essence of chicken) plus plentiful vegetables and elbow macaroni....very flavorable.

I have read several very poor reviews and not having been here for a few years I was concerned how it would be. Arrived at 4pm on a Friday so only bar was busy. Waitress got our water and drinks asap. Expressed our concerns for 91 year old mom in law needing soft foods. Attended to our needs with no... More
