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.
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.
A fun place to go. Good beer and AWESOME burgers. Homebrewers need only bring a mason jar, they give samples of more then just beer. That’s right, they give out the magic little critters that turn wort into....well, you get the point, bring a mason jar.
Visited for dinner while in the Destin area for business. Interesting mix of bar locals and tourists. All the bills pasted all over the ceilings and walls was pretty cool. I was also intrigued by the very small brewery on site and what appeared to be open fermenters. Service was excellent. I had a sampler (to start) and all the house beers are quite solid. The food was very good and my grilled steak paired with the Irish Cream Stout was perfect and at a reasonable price for a resort area.
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.
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.
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.
I’ve been to this place many times over the years, most recently on 11 NOV 06 (I must have about 10 $1 bills hanging about the place from my visits, you’ll understand if you’ve been there). A great Irish Pub feels to it and you have to love the taps. The beer is decent and the food is great. The barkeeps know their beer and are very helpful for those not knowledgeable in beer. I happened to catch the Scotch Ale (seasonal) this weekend while having an after race beer during the offshore race weekend.
Very nice atmosphere. Lots of great food and good service. The raspberry ale was the best beer I tasted that day.

This is basically a tourist-and-kid friendly restaurant that you wouldn’t know was a brewpub at first glance. But the beers are very good and so is the food. Service was efficient and friendly. Typically Destin high prices but the servings are much larger than in most Destin eateries. And there’s the beer, which is good to very good. A return trip this year found the place just as good, but the patio’s view of the Gulf has been compromised by one of those giant condo towers from hell that blight the Florida coast being constructed across the street. Highly recommended for vacationers who love beer and easier than most brewpubs to talk the family into going.
