The place looks huge from the outside, and it takes a minute to adjust the eyes to the dim, red lighting. I sat at the bar and just looked around. The place was entirely covered with dollar bills and bras in just about every inch of ceiling. The food portions were unbelievable; ginormous. The beer is sessionable and considering the styles available, is pretty great. The stout is a great stout and the porter is pretty awesome. A great stop whenever there is a reason to be in Destin.

A standard tourist brew pub on the beach. The microbrews are decent, but nothing to write home about. The food is okay. The pub has a great atmosphere, with live music and fun decor. Service was pretty good. Went on a Friday night and the place was packed. People seemed to enjoy this pub. It’s worth a visit if there isn’t a crowd, but don’t bother if there’s a long wait.

Double story Irish pub with dollar bill wall paper - begging you to rip them off the wall. Service was very friendly and attentive, knew what was on tap and how to serve it. Selection was limited to their beers on tap, but none of them were horrible. fresh if nothing else. Food was decent, 18 cent soup and plenty of Irish fare, nicer cuisine, and bar food. Value was average for the booze, food was what you would expect for the area if not a little skewed for tourists in areas. Nice place to stop by when in Destin, would like to check out the actual brewery in Pensacola if I get the chance.

Wow what a place, very packed on a Saturday night, but very expected. Dollar bills hanging from every inch of the place. Huge seating areas that accommodated a party of two within 15 minutes. Server was nice and friendly, wasn’t to assure of herself on the beer. Food was some of the biggest portions I have ever had and left me with a few more meals. Beer was true to styles and enjoyable. Had a great time.

Great spot - beers were mediocre, but they have a sampler available and the food was outstanding. Cool vibe with dollar bills all over the joint.

Fairly standard Brewpub atmosphere. Extremely busy for dinner on a Tuesday. I did not try the food. Beer is so-so, but the bartenders are extremely accomodating.

McGuire’s is the ONLY microbrewery in Destin; which is a plus. The seasonal brews can definitely be worth my while, but the standard brews (although correct by style guidelines) tend to be a little boring for me. Millennium is my favorite seasonal and their Porter is my go-to standard beer. Mug Club on Wednesday is a great time to drink $1 beers! Food here is great. Some of the best burgers and reuben sandwiches in town and the steaks are the best value for legitimate Prime meat in the area.

Stopped by while doing an orchestra gig in the area, and was pleased with the place.

A nice little pub setting, but weirdly covered in dollar bills. It’s like they’re begging you to rip them off the walls.

The bartender when we were there on a Thursday night was awesome. He was prompt, funny, kind, and knew at least basic knowledge about their brews. There was a girl bartender there as well who knew quite a bit less, but she was still friendly and prompt.

Their selection is limited, I guess... their brews and macros, but still... you go there for one of those two things.

Didn’t try the food, if they even have any.

Decent prices. $3.50-$4 a pint for their brews.

Overall, I’m sure it’s one of the better bars to stop at in the Destin area. The beers aren’t going to blow you away, but you’re going to have an awesome time if you try, and it’s a pretty fun place!

Went to this one to go try Tom’s(the brewmaster)beers! Atmosphere: Same as all of them. Attempting to capture the Irish pub feel with dollar bills EVERYWHERE. Quality: The beers served were incredible. Tom does a great job with his beers. I especially enjoyed the barley wine. Don’t just go by the menu. Always ask if they have something special on draft. Service: Fantastic. Food: Food was great. My family loved the food and the price is reasonable. Definitely a place to go here in the Panhandle. The ONLY brewpub there is.
