St George Grub, Coffee and Hang Outs

“But Can I Get Coffee & Beer?”

Yes, of course you can.  As a former Clevelander, food and drink is important to me. So I have been picking through the St George dining scene, which has been s-l-o-w-l-y improving over the last 9 1/2 years and I will tell you some of my favorite, local places below.  Local Places only.  Applebees, Olive Garden and that stuff, you can find those on on your own.  The little gems here are places that I like and frequently take my real estate team members and are a part of every day life here in St. George.

Coffee to Go

Perks Espresso and Smoothies on Sunset Boulevard.  Friendly, personal service, good coffee, reasonable prices with a drive thru window for on your way to work or school.

Breakfast in St George

Bishop’s on Sunset near Dixie Drive.  Large portions, fast service, great value and locally owned.

Bear Paw on Main Street.  Really cool, quirky place for waffles. Bon appetit!

The Egg and I  Located at Sunset Corners, a perfect place to get a skillet.  Open until 2:00 PM.

George’s Corner.  At historic Ancestor Square.

Lunch in Land O’ the Sun

The Black Bear on Bluff Street.   Large menu and miniature pies,  small Utah/Idaho chain.

Dinner in Dixie

Painted Pony The Pony is considered by many to be the best restaurant in town, year after year.  Great meal, white table cloth experience. Local family owned.

Cliffside Restaurant  On the mesa located across from the old St. George Airport site, now Dixie Tech Campus.  A quality restaurant with a lovely view over the bustling metropolis.

Entrada At Snow Canyon  Private dining experience for those fortunate enough to live in the Entrada community.  Nicest dining room in Southern Utah with the most breathtaking views. Members only.

Anasazi Steakhouse – On Sunset Boulevard.  Although I go to a restaurant so the chef can prepare my food, this is the  only place in town where you can cook your food on a hot rock at your table.  Interactive dining and don’t forget the Chocolate Fondue as a dessert.  Simply delicious.  Call ahead on the weekends to get a table…

George’s Corner is less expensive than Painted Pony, yet still excellent.   I really enjoy the Lamb Burger and their mixed drink menu is quite nice.   Located at Ancestor Square, LIVE MUSIC too.  Check their website for who is playing.

Panda Garden on 900 East above the Boulevard.  Really good Chinese food, nice ambiance, clean and great service.  I like the Walnut Shrimp.  Tasty!

Xetava GardensLocated out at Kayenta, great little scenic drive 20 minutes from the center of St. George, I highly recommend!

Cupcakes and Desserts

25 Main Located on Main Street, how quaint right?  Cupcakes-ooh lala,  get the coconut ones.  Scrumptious and really cheap after 7:00 PM.

Veyo Pies.  Yes, yes,  you will drive all the way up Route 18 to Veyo (16 miles) to get pie.  This pie has been discovered by international athletes.  They do their race (St. George Marathon) and return for their pie.  Like cream pies?  Try the Veyo Volcano -erupting with creamy, chocolate and caramel deliciousness. Its probably, like, 8000 calories a slice.  Amazing and so far, not yet outlawed by the govt.  Yep, I just said that.

Night Life

George’s Corner-Full liquor License and Live Music

Wingnuts  Sports Bar with many televisions, excellent baked wings and a full bar.  Open til midnight on the weekends.  located on River Road nears Dicks Sporting Goods.
