Description: McGuire's Irish Pub first opened in 1977 as a small neighborhood pub in a shopping center. In 1982 McGuire's moves to its current location; Pensacola's original 1927 Old Firehouse. Inside the pub you'll find a turn-of-the-century, New York Irish Saloon themed 615-seat restaurant. We are celebrated for our atmosphere boasting more than One Million signed dollar bills hanging from the ceilings and walls of the Pub. In 1996, McGuire's Irish Pub of Destin opened on beautiful Destin Harbor with the same great food and live Irish entertainment. For the most current Menu's please visit our website.

“Wish we'd tried McGuire's on our last trip!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

WOW!! We loved McGuire's and so wish we'd tried it on our last trip to Pensacola! The atmosphere is wonderful, with great service, delicious food (the portions are huge!! you will not leave hungry!), and at very reasonable prices (we spent more in the gift shop than on a meal for 3 adults!) I've never seen my husband so excited about a restaurant! I just overheard him telling a friend it'd be worth the 3 hour drive to Pensacola just to eat and drive right back!

And...without ruining it, I will say I had the best laugh in the restroom and came back to my table with a hilarious story to share!! :)

“Great Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is a very fun place everyone should visit at least once! You never know what might happen, on our most recent trip we saw Emeril Lagasse! The food is always good, the service great, and the burger choices endless:)

“Pensacola "Must Do"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

McGuire's is one of those must see - must do stops while in Pensacola. Traditional pub fare, excellent steaks and who can't go for a bowl of Senate Bean Soup. The thing I like most about McGuire's is that you can order off the menu at just about any price range. Corned Beef and Cabbage is an excellent value as is the Reuban. Steaks are amazing if you want to spend a bit more. Go for the Irish Wake -- one of the best specialty drinks around. If you come to Pensacola and don;t visit McGuire's - then you have missed out.

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Ate here with some friends back in September. The food was excellent! I had a beef stew and a homemade beer (McGuire's Light Ale) and both were very good. The service was great and the atmosphere in the place is fantastic, even at lunch. I would highly recommend this place if you're in the area.

“Awesome place. Good service, great burgers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This place knows what it's doing. I love the burgers here. Service is pretty good for the size of the place. One beef is that the live music is rather loud, and prohibitive to good conversation. It is fun however.
