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.

We have enjoyed McGuire many times but the latest was one of our favorites. We tried the house wine for the first time. Excellent! Even the food we couldn't finish that night was delicious the next day.

“Consistently good food!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

McGuire's has a fairly extensive menu, so there is something for everybody. The food is always good and the portions are large. My last visit I had the rib eye steak. It was cooked perfectly, was tender, and flavorful. I think this was the best steak in Pensacola.

“A Fun Place”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

A bit crazy at times. The waits can be horrendous. If you go here, eat BEEF--skip the other stuff since beef is their main thing and they do it very well with their thick cuts and that lovely garlicy butter they drizle on the steaks. The nonly thing I did not like was the appetizer of potato skins. Perhaps it was a bad night in the kitchen? They had zero taste--like cardboard with cheese that also didn't offer up any taste---weird. That aside the main things, main course and drinks were great. The live muisic is another plus. I've been here before for great experiences a few years ago which is why I am not knocking anything off for the stuffed potato skins (or whatever they were called) this time. Judging by the crowd the night we were there, they are obviously still doing it right. It can get pricey wuith the meat entrees. Also, this is not the place for an intimate, romantic date--too noisy. Better for a first date or established couples. My life partner and I had our very first date here back in 1997.
