Everything was delicious!! All four of our kids enjoyed their meals (this never happens!). Everybody wants to go back again before vacation is over.

The definition of arrogance is the management or ownership. A large group of us booked one month in advance for the patio and when we arrived they told us it was closed? Oddly there was a table of their friends sitting there eating and drinking? When we advised them that we reserved the patio and would like to sit outside... More

We dined here twice in two days! We loved it! We tried the Wild Mushroom Pizza and it was excellent! We also had the lamb burger and the Truffled Mac and Cheese. Everything we ordered was great. Good beer and cocktails as well!

The name itself congers up visions of pubs abroad, and this place does not disappoint, It is definitely a pub atmosphere with jolly frivolity, good humor, friendly servers and fast service. Now there may be a bit of a wait, but that is a bit of friendly fun also as you mingle with others sharing experiences of your day at... More

My husband and I went to Macduff's for the first time in June. We were in Tahoe for a family vacation and wanted a dinner out without the kids, although this place is kid friendly. We aren't fancy-schmancy people though, and this restaurant fit our style perfectly. Good, simple food in a casual atmosphere. When we first walked up, we... More

We come here every time we are in Tahoe - sometimes twice in one trip. We always bring the fish we catch from our morning fishing trip and they prepare it for us. They are great!

We stayed at Inn by the Lake and Macduff's is close by so we walked over for lunch. Great pizza!!! We ate pizza there a second time even though there were lots of other good choices.

We went to Macduffs after reading trip advisor reviews and can not recommend it enough! We were staying in North Tahoe but after spending the day in Emerald bay we kept driving down to try Macduffs and boy were we not disappointed. We ordered an appetiser of chicken nuggets which were beer battered, the serving was huge and even though... More

WOW! This place was amazing!!! I did not know what to expect walking in, but had an amazing waiter, who took the time and explained the menu to us. He recommended that I try the Truffled Mac and Cheese with BACON!!! Oh my goodness! Words cannot describe how delicious that was!! My boyfriend had the Grilled Chicken club sandwich which... More

We ate here our last night in Tahoe. Macduff's does not sit on the main road so it would be easy to miss unless you are looking for it. We found out about it on Yelp. They have a nice patio area. I didn't make it inside so I don't know how the seating was in there. The service was... More
