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 went around 4 PM on Saturday and were seated right away. Our server was very friendly and checked on us frequently. Food was great...We all had different choices. Lots of food for the price. Atmosphere was great as expected. We would definitely come back. I

We should have left when we saw the *tour bus* but since we were meeting 2 other family member groups, we didn't leave. We had 11 people. We waited for over an hour but used that to talk & laugh. Then finally got seated in back hall. It was so loud and packed!! Wait staff were having trouble moving around the room. Just crazy!! Then it took 20 mins or more for our drinks to arrive (no alcoholic drinks just sodas & iced tea). Then no bread...took our server so long to come back to get our orders. By then the drinks were gone so we needed refills. Finally got food ordered...they were out of bread (baking will be out soon-HA), out of Senate Bean Soup. About 20 mins again, here comes the soup, which tasted like hot water with beans in it...NO ham flavor at all. Terrible!! Waiter said he'd take that off our bill. Then the food came. By that time I think we would have eaten anything!! Our food was good but I don't think waiting for 3 hrs for a meal was that good!!

Now, I will say this...all the other times we have eaten here...the meals are fantastic!!!

Usually a wait on the weekends but you will want to wait. This is the second visit to McGuires we have made the first was in Destin. Both places were fantastic. Fun, funky place worth great food and drinks.

We were looking for somewhere fun to take our kids while on vacation. You've got to see all the dollar bills all over the ceiling. It's crazy! Most of us ordered burgers/fries for $10. They were huge! Couldn't even eat a quarter of them. Maybe tomorrow as leftovers.

Our server was good and the atmosphere was fun. We were there early on a week day so we didn't have a wait. This place is a great stop for those who try new places while on vacation. The French onion like soup was yummy. We had the bean soup too for $.18. It wasn't my thing, but my husband liked his.

Calamari appetizer, seared tuna, and grilled mahi mahi! Fabulous service, incredible atmosphere, and delicious food. Wish I could give this location 6 stars!
