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.

Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

The resturant is great with out the food. But when u eat it makes it that much better. The portions are huge and delicious. I always get the nathens special. That dish last me two meals. Beware of the liverwurst sandwich it sita 12 inch high and there is two of them. U definitly get what u pay for. I go there every time im in town. Get there early if u dont want to wait outside.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We enjoyed our recent lunch at McGuire's Irish Pub. There is a good selection of pub style foods. Prices are reasonable and portions large. The food is tasty too! There is a great atmosphere. The restaurant is divided into a number of smaller rooms so you get the feeling of being in an intimate Irish pub and not a large restaurant. Service was friendly and efficient. They brew their own beer on the premises so there are some unique offerings. The restaurant had lots of patrons and is obviously popular. We plan to return when visiting the area again.

“Great Irish Food & Crab Cakes Too!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Loved this Irish Pub. The Crab Cakes were wonderful and the Shepards Pie was very traditional Irish fair. Save room for the Bread Pudding, it's the best. However, be careful when going to the restrooms (read the door signs very carefully).

“Everyone's treated like a celebrity”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

An obvious institution in Pensacola and for good reason. Huge portions, fair prices, their own in-house brewery, and a culture of service that makes everyone feel like one of those "fancy people" who signed their 8X10 glossy's framed on the walls. Great fun, great food, and great service--don't mess with that recipe.

“Great food, service”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Lots of good food. I ordered the beer sampler and really liked the IPA and the Stout. The brownie was to die for!
Good value.
