About the menu editor

Restaurants can list their menu items on their Business Profile on Google. This feature is available to food and drink businesses that don't already have a menu list provided by a third party.

How the menu editor works

In Google My Business or Google Search, you may find an option to add menu items, along with their descriptions and prices. To keep your menu organized, group items into sections, such as appetizers, desserts, and main courses. It can take 24–48 hours for your changes to display on Google Maps and Search.

When customers find your Business Profile, they can find your menu items listed under "Menu."

Important: If you have a menu provided by a third party or the GMB API, you may not have this feature in Google My Business or Google Search.
