I am not sure how this place has such great reviews. The place itself is very cool but I would recommend going for drinks only so you can experience it. The food was not good at all. The burger was way too over cooked. I ordered the philly cheese steak. It was WAY too salty. I also found not one,... More

Had to wait quite a bit but they were able to get us in the upstairs bar which wasn't air conditioned but was still comfortable. Food was great, the prices are on the high side but we all only ate half of our food and took it back to our condo and ate the rest the next day for lunch.

McGuire's is one-of-a-kind and a required stop on any weekend trip to Destin! The drinks and food are great and the atmosphere is fun.

I have been to MCGUIRE"s several times. This time it was not the same. I always build a burger, but this time the waitress said the kitchen staff was not allowed to make my burger medium rare. I asked for as rare as possible; I received well done.

We had a wonderful family lunch at McGuire's starting with the best potato skins I have ever had and I am not joking! The molly cut filet mignon was tendor and seasoned to perfection. The bread pudding was delicious, but be careful with the rum sauce...very strong. The two negatives is the dark lighting of restaurant and if you are... More

Loved the atmosphere and the food! Ordered the NY strip and it was amazing! They were very busy during my visit, but we were seated and served quickly. The staff took the time to explain the menu and the money that is on every flat surface! It has a higher price point- but, I will pay more to actually enjoy... More

The location is neat, and the entire place in covered from wall to wall with dollar bills. It was cool to hang out at. Make sure you read the bathroom signs carefully before enterling lol...(you will thank me later) Overall the food was ok, bar food. Our waiter was weird, but I would still go back. The green drink they... More

So we have been to destin many summers and have been to McGuire's several times. The first few times this summer the food was to die for! We have had steaks and pork chops and both were amazing with great prices. All the bartenders have had great personalities and very competent until Jonathan. He took our order.... Kind of. He...

No other Irish Pub is like this one! Whenever we get close enough, we'll drive here. We discovered this in 2004 and now we tell everyone we know about it! Ate here on Tuesday, July 12, and the wait at 7:30 was 1:15 and we waited on it and it was worth the wait!! I wouldn't wait that long on... More
