If you’re a Florida resident in need of Celtic cuisine and beer, you’re in luck! Southern Florida has several Scottish pubs and eateries that are sure to satisfy your cravings. Following a grueling day of lifting heavy furniture and lugging boxes to and from their truck, our friends from a Miami moving company like to kick back and relax with a pint of Dark Island Preserve or a glass of Glenfiddich at one of their favorite area pubs. After all, the strenuous work of moving leaves these guys feeling like they’ve spent the day competing at the Highland Games. For the best Scottish restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami metro area, here are their top recommendations to check out.
Kings Head Pub and Restaurant
Located in the metropolitan area of Miami, the Kings Head Pub is a popular place to grab a beer and good Scottish cuisine. With live music on Fridays and weekly open mic nights, it’s a local favorite amongst all ages and offers affordable prices. Their best selling dish is (unsurprisingly) their authentic fish and chips that are served with Guinness gravy, which is reported to be just as good as the original in England. And if you’re looking for a fun time with the whole family, the Kings Head Pub is an excellent choice.
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink
While this Florida spot doesn’t exactly sound like a Scottish bar, it certainly boasts a few delicious menu items that you’re sure to enjoy. With a menu of deviled eggs, braised rabbit, fresh seafood, and thick cut chips, fans of Scotland will feel right at home at this Miami pub. And for those visiting from out of town, there are plenty of entertainment venues and designer shops that surround the restaurant to enjoy as well.
Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery
The Tilted Kilt is a fun and lively restaurant with Celtic flair and features lives music, authentic Scottish dishes, and watch parties for professional sporting events. They even serve an Irish-inspired menu for a limited time that serves up Irish chip dip, corned beef hash and eggs, and many other Celtic dishes. Located 20-minutes away from the heart of Fort Lauderdale, the restaurant is a top choice for many locals who come to enjoy both the music and the featured waitresses, who wear kilt outfits in a much more attractive way.
The Pub Pembroke Pines
Located in the Miami area, The Pub has the feel of a local neighborhood bar and serves wide-range of Irish and Scottish cuisines, including a delicious London Broil, bangers and mash, and shepherd’s pie.

And whether you’re celebrating a special anniversary or gathering with friends, it’s a great place to spend an evening.
