If you are a fan of Mexican food and heading up to Pier Park anytime soon, then you absolutely must check out the new Cantina Bar & Grill at Pier Park. When it comes to Mexican, there are already several Panama City Beach restaurants that are popular both in terms of menu and atmosphere – but the Cantina Bar & Grill takes the experience one step further. The Pier Park location is a bonus (the restaurant can be found opposite Red Robin in the spot that Baja Grill used to call home), and in addition to the unique, mouth-watering cuisine, there are plenty of extras that you won’t find anywhere else.
The menu, although similar in style to a traditional Mexican restaurant, offers a much wider variety of choices. Appetizers include Loco Queso al Fuego – Chihuahua cheese with roasted poblano peppers, spicy chorizo sausage and mushrooms, fired tableside. There’s a great selection of soups, salads and lunch specials, and entrees include Baja Fish Tacos – grilled tilapia served in flour tortillas with red marinated cabbage, pico de gallo and one side. One of the best things about The Cantina Bar & Grill’s menu is that it offers some side items that you won’t find anywhere else. Jalapeño sweet grits, coconut rice, sautéed green beans and sweet potato chips are just a few of the delicious options to accompany your meal.
The Cantina Bar & Grill is an excellent choice when you are looking for a new Panama City Beach restaurant, but it’s not just the food that will impress. The Cantina is actually the place to see and be seen! Perfect for after work drinks, weekend margaritas or fancy cocktails, the restaurant is incredibly spacious and airy and is a great space to relax with friends. There are daily drink specials including buy one Margarita and get the 2nd half off on Wednesdays, and bloody Mary specials on Sunday mornings. Not much of a Sunday morning person? Every Thursday night at 8:30 pm the Cantina Bar & Grill is offering free traditional salsa lessons, and on Friday and Saturday nights from about 10:00 pm onwards the whole place goes from laid-back restaurant to hot Latin nightspot! Disco nights are hopping till the early hours, and there’s no cover until the season is in full swing!
The Cantina Bar & Grill in Pier Park is so much more than just another new Panama City Beach restaurant. If you like good food, culture, and vibrant music, it is definitely worth stopping by and seeing for yourself why this recent addition should be sticking around for a long time to come.
