About St. George Island Cantina

The St. George Island Cantina is family owned and operated. After visiting every summer since the 1990s, the family fell in love with our beautiful island. They realized something was missing: a Mexican restaurant! Mexican cuisine pairs perfectly with the beachy vibe of our area, so they decided it was time to make SGI their home and open up the St. George Island Cantina. 

What's on the Menu?

The Food 

The St. George Island Cantina offers a variety of dishes, each with a St. George Island twist. Each dish is inspired by Mexican and Latin American flavors, and they are created with local and sustainable ingredients. Menu items range from tasty tacos to quesadillas. If you’re not in the mood for Mexican, don’t worry! You can get dishes like the island’s famous peel-and-eat shrimp, raw bar, burgers, and more. There’s something for everyone here; they even have a kid’s menu picky eaters will love. 

The Drinks

What would a Mexican restaurant be without margaritas? Each cocktail on the menu is made with freshly squeezed juices and seasonal fruits. As soon as you step inside, you are sure to hear the bartenders shaking these handcrafted drinks for your enjoyment! 

Classic margaritas aren’t the only thing on the menu-- they have some great wines and beers, too. The wine list has been curated from the Central Coast, Spain, and South America. Draft beers are available, and you can even get beer buckets! 


Not only does the St. George Island Cantina have excellent food and drinks, they also have some great live entertainment! Local bands play here, and you can stay and watch their set as you enjoy your meal. Check out their Facebook page for information on upcoming artists.
