Visiting an Irish pub is like stepping into James Joyce's Ulysses without dealing with molemen, teenage detectives, and heavy-handed NASCAR references. Read the Cliffs Notes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of burgers, beers, and more at Maguire's Family & Friends Restaurant and Irish Pub in Senoia.
A wooden hand points revelers down the brick-lined stairs and through the solid oak door into Maguire's Family & Friends Restaurant and Irish Pub, where revelers can partake of traditional Irish and American fare and spirits in an inviting pub setting. Replenish proteins with the Maguire's sizzling steak skillet, a 10-ounce-sirloin that, like the wait staff, can soak in a Jameson whiskey bath by request ($15). A menu replete with big beefy burgers such as the chili-pepper-coated Green Monster ($9.50) silences whiny stomachs. Meanwhile, the fish 'n' chips ($12) neighbors its Smithwick's Ale–battered cod fillet with a side of golden brown chips, and the Monte Cristo ($8.50) plates an edible adventure novel of deep-fried turkey, ham, and swiss cheese mounting a carriage of Texas toast.
Thirsty guests can hoist a draft beer at the 30-foot wood bar or sip one of the pub's more than 40 wines near the impressive fireplace, which boasts a 14-foot mantle made from a fallen oak. Flanked by copper ceilings and a rich brown color palette, the lush décor establishes an elegant atmosphere for reciting Dubliner limericks, performing Limerick dubstep, or double-daring Rick Bayless to swallow an entire lime.
