L.J. Schooner's worth effort to find

BLUEWATER BAY — The easiest way to find L.J. Schooner’s Dockside Restaurant in Bluewater Bay is to turn onto Bay Drive off State Road 20 and continue until you reach the marina.

The restaurant is inside the building that also contains the marina store.

The food
Arriving early for dinner, Schooner’s begins serving dinner at 5 p.m., we opted to sit and enjoy the sunset and a bowl of L.J. Schooner’s rich, delicious seafood gumbo.

Schooner’s has a nice variety of seafood and non-seafood appetizers, but the gumbo was a wonderful choice on a windy, cold evening.

In addition to the gumbo, they also offer a soup of the day by the cup or bowl. The evening of our visit, it was broccoli cheese.

If your taste runs more toward raw or steamed oysters or steamed shrimp, these items are available from the oyster bar during Oyster Bar hours.

At Schooner’s, salads, fried baskets and sandwiches are offered at both lunch and dinner. Chicken pasta and vegetable primavera with marinara or Alfredo sauce are also offered with a more extensive menu of build-your-own pasta available after 5 p.m.
