Maguires Hill 16

There are quite a few Irish pubs in South Florida. All of them have great beer. Most do not do great food. Tucked away on North Andrews avenue in east Ft. Lauderdale is Maguires Hill 16. This dark, smoky, landmark is great place for lunch, happy hour or just to chill out and have a beer.

Every day there are several lunch specials. They change daily and are all reasonably priced from $6.99 to $12.99. They also have a complete menu with something for everyone. One great reason to eat at Maguires is their potato soup. For an up charge of .50 cents you can get a loaded bowl of some great potato soup.

The opening order was the standard fish and chips. This consisted of one large piece of golden fried cod and a healthy amount of steak fries. It was well done and very tasty. It rivaled any English Pub I have eaten at. They keep vinegar on the table for the fries and fish, but unfortunately, they never heard of brown sauce at Maguires. We also ordered a Hot Corned Beef sandwich which comes with a side of fries which was good. It was served on marble rye bread and served warm with extra hot and spicy mustard. Finally the Shepard's Pie was seasoned ground beef over a bed of mashed potatoes. The dish was served hot and the seasoning was just right. Most of the men items excel for pub fare; however, I would think twice before ordering the Teriyaki Chicken. Finally, the beer. They have an impressive selection of imports and drafts although I was a bit disappointed they had no hand pumped ales. They also have a full service liquor bar for those who wish to hit the hard stuff. Service is above average and the servers are very attentive to their customers.

Maguires opens early and closes late. They have live bands on the weekends and a free buffet for happy hour. Pay them a visit at 535 N. Andrews Avenue in Ft. Lauderdale for some good old fashioned publike fun.
