and Bar

 

Cantina 76 is a lively, independently-owned restaurant and bar that specializes in Mexican-inspired cuisine and hand-crafted margaritas, providing a fast yet satisfying dining experience in a casual, upbeat atmosphere that encourages guests to hang out before, during and after dining. This comfortable, inviting restaurant and bar, first founded in Columbia, S.C., by college friends who love food and travel, is a go-to for families, couples, young professionals, the business community and college students – perfect for a night out and drinks with friends or a quick meal with coworkers during a lunch break. 

The bar is stocked with a selection of premium tequilas, and "skinny" margarita fans love the Cantina Margarita, sweetened with low-glycemic agave nectar. With contemporary, eclectic décor and TVs for big games, Cantina 76 works whether you’re in shorts, a party dress or a suit. Lunch and dinner are served seven days a week, and the bar has been known to stay hopping well after the last Peruvian shrimp taco of the day has been served.
