Schooners Bar and Grill

Theodoros Gouletas and George Garofalis founded Schooners Bar and Grill together in 2005, hoping to create a space for local residents to enjoy both the fun ofschooners_SC a bar and the comfort of a restaurant from its CNU Village location. After over a decade of operating, Theo and George decided to move to a larger location to accommodate increased clientele levels and purchased the property at 12567 Warwick Boulevard for that purpose.

Upon purchasing the property, Theo and George transformed the existing building into the new home of Schooners through significant investment and work. Since opening at its new location earlier this summer, Schooners has had to double its payroll as residents from throughout the area have eagerly followed the restaurant. The restaurant’s menu combines seafood with restaurant entrees, including a number of Greek specialties, and the trivia nights and band performances are a popular draw.
