This awesome little place is now permanently closed. For sale signs up and shop is empty. Very sad to it gone loved going for coffee and enjoying the patio

If you visit downtown St. Mary’s, you should have a coffee, sandwich, glass of wine, cheese and fruit plate, or just a glass of tea at the Blue Goose! If the weather permits, you can sit outside and enjoy the delightful setting and watch the...More

We are here all of the time, whether it's just me needing a break from work, the boyfriend and I stopping by on the weekend, or bringing out of town guests here. This place is like my second living room.

Thanks for making the Goose a part of your day. We love cheese and soon will be offering some from one of our Georgia dairies!

Order cheese plate for two and you will not be disappointed! Quirky design adds to atmosphere. Informal and friendly service. Seemed like they had an excellent wine selection, though I'm nothing close to a wine aficionado.

Thanks for the kind words! Love the "quirky design". I designed the shop and that is exactly where I was going. I like my wines, like I like my design, little quirky and kinda memorable. We look forward to seeing you again soon. ~Donna

My wife and I had lunch at the Blue Goose during a daytrip to St. Marys. The décor is nothing special, however, the blueberry coleslaw is really special. The chef throws in a little cinnamon and hummin to spice it up. The sandwich wraps are...More

My daughter and I stayed just one night before going to cumberland island to hike. The beds are basic but comfortable, the place was really clean. I would definitely stay there again.

Don't be fooled by the ranking here on tripadvisor! Take your special someone to this place! It's quaint and well done inside! The entire menu is great. Doesn't matter what you order it will impress you! Bagel sandwich and mimosas were killer!

They do make picnic lunches for the ferry but they don't have cold-packs to take with you. I hope this helps.

The Blue Goose is your kick back have a glass of wine kind of place. We offer a variety of fresh menu items through out the day. All fresh, nothing fried ... We carry local and imported wines and a fairly extensive variety of craft beers. We've got a dog bowl for your furry friend and sidewalk chalk for the kids. Perfect place to slow down and watch the world go by.
