Johnny O’Quigley’s is an Irish-themed sports bar that’s been serving a variety of beer and pub food in Destin since 2005. I was curious as to whether there actually would be any Irish-type food here, and meeting our hostess and server, Leah, who was from England, made me think the experience held promise.

The food

The menu at Johnny O’Quigley’s is extensive with normal bar favorites such as chili cheese fries, wings, quesadillas and burgers. However, they had a menu filled with such entrees as bangers and mash, steak pie and shepard’s pie.

My friend and I chose the bangers and mash and the steak pie. For an appetizer, though, we decided to try some boneless wings with interesting sauces. One was a chipotle raspberry, and the other was a mandarin sauce.

The wings were pretty good, with the chipotle raspberry winning. The mandarin sauce was good as well, but the the chipotle was a definite favorite.

When our entrees arrived, my bangers and mash were served with the sausages poised over a mound of mashed potatoes all glazed in a brown gravy.

My friend’s steak pie came served in a silver crock. The steak was baked along with gravy, vegetables, mashed potatoes and topped with cheese.
