Very unique establishment. Tens if thousands of dollar bills attached to walls and ceilings. Maybe more. Always a WAIT list, because it is popular, and great food. Consider splitting a meal with your spouse. Steaks are 16 oz's, and Great. Burgers are 3/4 of a pound or more. The largest wine store that I have ever seen on premises and... More

The portions were gracious. My husband's pork chops were huge. The mashed potatoes, shrimp & asparagus cold never disappoint. The restaurant was very busy but the wait was decent. Would definitely recommend!!!

We always visit McGuires when we are in Destin and they do not disappoint! I tried the Shepard's Pie and it was very tasty! Mashed Potatoes for days! Hubs had the Hickory Prime Rib and said it was perfection! Kids had burgers and the pasta...they raved too! Robert was a great server too! Try sitting in the upstairs area...the views... More

I've been coming here ever since they built this place. I always preferred it to the original Pensacola location, but the tourists have found this one and it has changed over the last couple of years. The food is still delicious, the service is still good, and the atmosphere is still unique. On the other hand, they've added a pizza... More

We got to the restaurant and saw a ton of people waiting outside and were worried it would be a long wait. Surprisingly it was only 20 minutes! The service was quick and friendly. We got the prime rib and it was delicious. Unique atmosphere. Close to the harbor, we walked from our parasailing adventure.

I think the title sums it up pretty well. They have the best wait staff and some of the best food around. We've been to Fort Walton Beach three times and have eaten at McGuire's four times. The steaks are seasoned and cooked perfectly, burgers the size of your head and dressed wonderfully, I forget what else we have had... More

Seriously, go to McGuires and ask for Chance as your server. He is such a great ambassador of this establishment. He is knowledgeable, personable, and professional. Now about McGuires: second to none in taste, service, and prices. The atmosphere is "rich" and unique. Best place to eat in Destin! Make sure to go here on your first night and I... More

Worth the wait. Steaks were done perfectly. Excellent flavor. Excellent portions. I ate till I was miserable and brought home the rest. I had to force myself to put the fork and knife down

The absolute best food, friendly wait staff and a great place to visit. If you come in the evening, good luck finding a parking place. The ceilings, walls, and any free space are covered in dollar bills. I have heard that there is about 2 million dollars plastered around the interior of the building. Try the Navy Bean soup, it...

Went to McGuire's first night in Destin. I was not starving, so I ordered an appetizer for my dinner. I tried the Irish egg rolls. Egg rolls stuffed with corned beef and cabbage, ad served with a side of Thousand Island dressing. Very good, and such a large portion that I took some home. Service was terrific, too..
