Schooners Last Local Beach Club “Possibly the most perfect place on earth.” Every table comes with an incredible view of the beach….
Capt. Anderson’s restaurant is one of those rare “family” restaurants that not only survives, but strengthens and improves through the years. The landmark waterfront restaurant is celebrating its 46th anniversary in 2013, and every year has witnessed remarkable growth without loss of quality. The restaurant has grown to 725 seats and, six nights a week, serves over 250,000 guests during its 8 month season. Founders, Jimmy and Johnny Patronis set high standards of hard work and consistency for the younger Patronis generations, and they still pull their shifts at the busy restaurant, stopping by to welcome old friends and loyal customers… occasionally bussing a table or taking a special order. Their passion for the business is undoubtedly the root of Capt. Anderson’s success.
