It is a great value considering the amount of food you get for the price. I got the fish and chips and my wife got the shrimp and chips. Both were generous portions of fish/shrimp and a mound of fries and coleslaw. Also if you love hot sauce try the thunder sauce!!!

We were disappointed in the quality of the food. The portions were adequate, and my beer battered shrimp was good. The cole slaw tasted off and half the french fries were over cooked. My wife had the tree hugger veggie burger which she thought would have been better if not breaded and fried. The wait staff was attentive and the... More

My family came here because of the enthusiastic reviews. We thought that the service was great, the beer selection was outstanding, but the food was just ok and the prices are high. The fish and chip portions were huge, but the fish didn't have any flavor. The steak and Guiness stew was really expensive but just tasted like ordinary beef... More

My family and I dined at Macduff's for lunch a few days ago. It was a beautiful day, so we sat on the patio. We found the menu to have a great selection of food. I ordered a gluten free pizza. It was just okay, nothing special. We found the service to be okay. Our server did disappear for a... More

After reading excellent reviews we were looking forward to a strong dining experience. Since it was a beautiful evening we expected to use outside dining. Our party of seven was told that we could either squeeze around a table for five or sit inside but they were not giving us two tables. At the time four tables were empty on... More

We ate here on a trip to Lake Tahoe and really enjoyed it. I have been dreaming about their french fries ever since. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Great food, good service, outdoor seating...what's not to love?

This place was beyond fabulous! The wait time was a bit longer than we would have liked, but 100% worth the wait! It goes without saying that the Mac & Cheese is out of this world heavenly! We enjoyed our meal and the excellent service provided. A must!! Get there early though..

Fun place to people watch. The deck is active with both patron and servers. The food was the least of the attractions.

We sat outside on a beautiful day in Tahoe. The wait was about 10 minutes so we enjoyed an adult beverage. The food was GREAT, service was GREAT. We will do this one again but next time I am trying the pot pie. The Sheperds Pie was just a bit runny for me.

My friends and I went there for lunch and they brought their 80lb dog along. We sat out on the patio with terrific views and fresh air. The waitstaff was very friendly and even offered to bring our canine friend some water. Food was very good but a little pricy. (I paid $17 for a salad.)
