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.

“Fun place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Came out on a recommendation atmosphere was great and the service was outstanding. Ordered steaks they cut like butter! They have a happy hour after 4 where you can get half off their in house crafted beer. It wasn't the least expensive place to eat at but worth a visit at least once if in the area

“corned beef capitol!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Corned beef and cabbage, yummy. They have quite a variety of vittles to choose from if your not into corned beef. Crowded, always and noisy. It has a maze of rooms and you can get lost easy when looking for the bathrooms and then navigating your way back.

“Must Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

The food was great. The staff was extremely friendly. The atmosphere was outstanding. Busy place so go early! Waiting time may be lengthy for elderly but staff was very accommodating by bringing a chair out for us. You have to try the Reuben Egg Roll, YUM YUM!

“Great food & atmosphere- GO EARLY!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

The food is amazingly delicious, but going on Saturday night at 6 wasn't the best idea. Try coming to eat before prime times. Though the wait time was enormous, the staff was extra friendly. They have everything down to a fine art with organization. The steaks were delicious as well as the burgers. Yum!
