Similar to the Pensacola location on the inside but not the outside. In a basic strip mall in a tacky little commercial zone. But once you get in it’s a really cool place with an unmistakable vibe and charm. Solid pub grub and decent beers. Friendly and lots of fun. Going to the bathroom at either Destin’s is fun.

Same kitschy, pubby vibe as the Pensacola McGuire’s. Solid service. Ribs from the smoker. A good time, even when the place was mostly empty. They had the barley wine on tap, too, which was a nice touch.
Nice location and good people. Visited on the way back from New Orleans.
Inside plastered with $ bills and nice atmosphere.
Friendly service and great beers as well.
Food was outstanding, don’t miss the 18c bean soup and their smoked ribs.
Some of the beers are average but their usual stronger and limited releases have always been amazing. A long drive to Tampa.
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.
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!
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.
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.
went here for dinner, food was pretty good, neat dark pub atmosphere with dollar bills hanging from everywhere. I think there were 5 beers on tap including a seasonal. I would say dinner will cost you roughly 15 bucks a person before beers. Overall not that bad considering this is the only place in the panhandle for craft beer.
