Ocean Inspired Cuisine, Monterey Bay Beauty

Suspended right over the magnificent Monterey Bay and located at the Monterey Plaza Hotel, Schooners Coastal Kitchen and Bar serves contemporary American cuisine and carefully sourced seafood to both the public and hotel guests alike. A bustling exhibition kitchen, heated oceanfront terrace and bar offer a lively atmosphere that locals and travelers delight in. Our menu is highlighted by a wealth of sustainable seafood, signature chowders, wood-fired dishes, sharing platters and decadent desserts. Signature cocktails and a wine list highlighting local vintners have won us the “best drink with a view” in Monterey County. Elevated booth seats offer optimal bay views, where guests are treated to otter sightings and magical moonlit evenings.

  • “If you really like BBQ in a casual atmosphere with local craft brews, Schooners Bar and Grill is the place.”
    - Craig T.
  • “Just visited Schooners for the first time and I will definitely be back. They have several craft beers on tap and they are more than reasonably priced at $5.”
    - John K.
  • “Plenty of seating and good prices. One of those places where they will know you and what you like to drink.”
