We only spent a day in Destin and this was the only place we were able to stop in and eat at. The atmosphere is very irish bar/restaurant and very cool. There are $1 bills hanging everywhere on the walls, the ceiling; all over. When you visit, you are supposed to sign one and hang it yourself. Cool concept and the waitress told us there was around $1.3 million in bills in the whole place.
We needed a good pick-me-up after wasting our time/money on a terrible "snorkel" tour. We had a late lunch - around 3:30pm. It was still fairly busy so that was a good sign - they are popular, and it's hard to be popular with bad food.
The food was a little slow to come out but nothing major. We ordered the spinach and artichoke dip as an appetizer and it was excellent. The chips that come with the dip were fluffy pita chips, I believe, and they were a welcome surprise over just regular chips.
Oh, and there's the $0.18 Senate Bean Soup. Get it!! They give you a large portion and it really is only 18 cents if you include it with your meal. It was DELICIOUS and probably my favorite part of the meal. I had the naked fish and chips and the fish was cooked perfectly. The "chips" are thick, homemade potato wedges that were good as well.
I enjoyed McGuire's very much and would like to go back try some more things on their expansive menu if I'm ever back in the area.
