Did not eat downstairs, we went upstairs after hours and it was open to the not so outside breeze. No AC and very stuffy. The beer was not cold whatsoever. I heard good things about the food.

This is. very cool place! They brew the beer right inside and their root beer is so authentic. I got the Reuben and it definitely did not disappoint. Our waiter was quirky and fun, and I really enjoyed the friendly service. Many people suggested eating upstairs on the deck and I had my heart set on it. Unfortunately I stopped... More

I had passed this place many times on while on our vacation to the Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area and this time by, we decided to stop in. WOW! The décor is Irish themed with lots of pictures of the Notre Dame football team plastered everywhere, plus hundreds of $1 bills stapled to the walls. The food is excellent and the... More

Heard so much great referrals to this place. It was just ok to me. Had a Onion/Mushroom/swiss hamburger. Burger was undercooked. Their root beer was awesome though- brewed in house.

Brought some friends from out of town for Sunday brunch. Ken was our waiter, and as always, he was wonderful! Though McGuires breakfast food is limited (no eggs, bacon grits Southern style breakfast) what they do have is WONDERFUL and much more then most can eat in one sitting! Plus they start you off with YUMMY beignets! And you can't... More

Excellent food and drink, good value. Great atmosphere. They brew their own beer. This was or first visit, and it will be our new tradition.

We stumbled upon this place after leaving the boardwalk and couldn't have been happier. It was busy when we arrived but well worth the wait. The bean soup was a great starter and my kids loved their steaks. The seafood bouillabaisse wasn't the best in the world, but the atmosphere and service well overshadowed that. I would highly recommend this... More

What caught my eye when I first opened up the menu was an 18 cent bean soup. Yes that is correct 18 cents! But you have to purchase an entree. It was well worth it. Read the story behind it too. Nice change of pace from all the seafood restaurants in Destin. The selection of Irish Pub Fare was nice.... More

Came here because of the burger reviews and was not disappointed! 3/4lb steak trimming burgers that are big enough to share and well seasoned. Very good! Don't miss the Senate Bean soup. Service was ok, hostess must have been having a bad evening. Bar drinks were so-so this night, but priced well. The James Bond tasted water down, the Manhattan... More
