Schooner Commons

Dining at Schooner Commons is offered to our guests all year by reservation only. We can accommodate groups up to 125.

At Schooner Commons, we strive to cook with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.  Soups, dressings, sauces and baked goods are prepared from scratch daily.  In addition to a “chef’s choice” hot entree, guests at lunch and dinner are invited to prepare their own salad from our salad bar furnished with fresh vegetables and hearty proteins.

Our talented and friendly staff at Schooner Commons prepare and serve three meals each day to guests with prior reservations. Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate diners on a drop in basis.  Bag lunches, private parties, and receptions are also available.

Dietary needs: To the capacity we are able, we accommodate the allergies and dietary restriction of our guests.  It is imperative that we are made aware of any and all special dietary needs in advance of your visit. If you have a restricted diet we recommend you bring food with you to supplement your diet.

All food and beverage served or consumed must be purchased, served and prepared by Schoodic Institute food service staff.  Outside food and beverage are not permitted at Schoodic Institute with the exception of food provided by licensed caterers at Rockefeller Hall.
