Found this place online and looked like a place where a group of us could get together and enjoy a couple drinks and dinner. We asked to be seated at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party showed up. Once everyone arrived we requested a table. There was only two tables that were filled however it took us about 10 minutes looking for the host. The bartender eventually got our table for us. Our waitress was completely overwhelmed (mind you there were still only two tables in her section including us). After waiting another 10 minutes she came over to get our drink order. We then had to wait an additional 15 minutes for her to return for our food order and that tool 30+ minutes for her to bring it out. I ordered the fish and chips with onion rings. The fish was over breaded and overcooked. The onion rings were cold and soggy with some even being raw. Thanks to the slow service we ended up being late for an event we were gong to. The only positive is they took my dinner off the bill. Needless to say I won't be coming back and don't recommend this place.

Schooner's used to be "the place to go" when they first opened...always really, really busy and everyone went there because there was no other good restaurant in the surrounding area. The bad thing I noticed in the past 5 years or so is that the shopping center it's located it has gone really downhill and doesn't feel very safe.

I had ordered a steak and mash potato dinner. I had asked for the steak to be well done. When I received my steak it was medium rare, which is a simple mistake, so I asked the waitress to bring it back well-done. When it came back to steak was charred on the outside and still bloody red on the inside. When I showed the waitress she just seemed annoyed. I would never recommend this place to anyone and will not return again.

I've eaten at Schooner's more times than I can count & can honestly say I've never been disappointed. The food and the service excel, and as far as getting your money's worth, you get MORE than your money's worth. I highly recommend it!

From an employee POV, that schooners is one of the best places i've ever worked as a server (33 years). The Owner always rewards the employees with awards and gives you many opportunities to excel. They try to ensure at all times the best food and service with consistentcy through an through. No one is perfect, but schooners surely tries their best. Like the owner Shawn says, "You can't please anyone no matter how hard you try!"

Been going to Schooner's since it opened. Never had a bad meal (no one is perfect). Service is usually dead on! (most of the staff been there since opening) What can you say about the beer? World Class! These guys have been winning more awards then anybody in the Bay Area. When I go to any restaurant, I realize anyone can have an off day (I was in the business). When in their lobby take a look around and find me a restaurant in this town that supports/donates more to this city then they do. Almost $40K just to high school scholarships!! I know the owner, if he told someone to "kiss his ass", sounds like someone was looking for a free meal? Anyway, I will keep supporting Schooner's, although I'm not sure this town deserves them!

My husband, daughter and I enjoy this restaurant. I believe the food is tasty. I love their steaks and their prime ribs. We have never had a problem before with bad service or bad waiters.My husband is the beer drinker and loves their home brewed beers. My 10 year old likes their pizza's. It is best to go early evening as they can get crowded.

PROS: Beer and Steak
CONS:

Went to lunch and was seated the waitress help two other couples that were seated after us. We waited 15 mintues and had to ask the hostess if there was a waitress working in our area. once the waitress finally came over to take our order she was very rude and didn't apoligize for the mistake. The food was not worth the price. A simple little sandwich and a small cup of soup. The soup was not hot and the sandwich didn't have much flavor. I had emailed the owner Shawn Burns and all I got was a im sorry and we will try harder next time. Thought that was a little rude so I emailed him back stating that I will probably never eat there again and he told me I can kiss his ! and enjoy all the other new establishments to eat at.

P.D.

Schooner's Grille is located in a shopping Plaza with plenty of parking available in the plaza parking lot. I only ate there once with my family and we had to wait several minutes for a table although the restaurant was half empty as far as I could see. The server took our orders fairly quickly however it took a long time for us to receive our food. I had their turkey sandwich and it tasted just okay to me, it wasn't that great. Also, I felt a little like I was not welcome there because I was not caucasian from the way we were treated. Never gone back since.

This restaurant is just OK. I have been there five times now over the years and just wasn't WOWed. I have ordered different menu items, from a cheeseburger to chicken cordon bleu to prime rib and I never thought it was that good. It's not something I can really put my finger on, it seems like the food is frozen like the kind you would get at Costco. There's not alot of flavor in the food, like no spices were used. Everything seems like its dried out. Maybe its sitting on a steam table in the kitchen or something.
