A short walk from the ferry, the Cargo Café—with an ever-changing mural on its concrete façade, thanks to local artist Scott Lobaido—was long the only nightlife game in St. George. It still has the area’s liveliest bar scene, with a great jukebox, live music, and a cherry-red pool table, in addition to bartenders shaking up their signature sweet-tooth martinis. Known as well for cheap lunches, fine burgers, and a giant digital clock (said to be counting down to the impact of an enormous, doomed meteor’s crash to Earth), its ambitious dinner menu surpasses basic bar food, especially with seared baby lamb chops and grilled pork chops with a bourbon-spiked spin on applesauce. Idiosyncrasy has its price, however: Cargo’s kitchen has been known to refuse to cook meat to a diner’s specifications, and the hard-working wait staff can seem dizzy or adorably absentminded, depending on your POV. Still, sitting in the open-air back room on a balmy day with the Verrazano in full view is a treat well worth the ferry ride.Recommended Dishes
