Not the easiest place to find but worth tracking down for the great food. Our party had the shepherds pie and macaroni cheese - both really good. Nice atmosphere and good background music. Definitely recommend

Not much of a drinker even though I appreciated seeing the unusual variety. The food was great for food to absorb the alcohol. Fantastic fish and chips, great fried calamari, unbelievable pizza with spinach, mushroom and feta cheese. By the way the pizza was soooo good we picked up one to go for our trip home to Orange County the... More

We read reviews on TripAdvisor and chose Macduffs for lunch. It was a late lunch - around 1:45 pm, but still within the 'lunchtime window'. We walked in - and found no one around, but a sign saying "Join us upstairs". We climbed the stairs and found no employees there. There was one table of people sitting and talking -... More

We visited MacDuff's again yesterday. As usual we had a great meal and the service and camaraderie was fabulous. The margarita pizza was a great appetizer. The ingredients were fresh, the dough baked to perfection and the sauce and cheese were fresh. The burgers and veggie burgers were fabulous. The buns were fresh baked and the fries were cooked to...

My wife and I stopped here after reading some online reviews, it is was great. We had an amazing pear and walnut salad. Most restaurants use canned pears for their salads, but MacDuff's prepares their own pears and they were excellent. We also had the shepherds pie which was also freshly prepared and wonderful. I highly recommend that you drop... More

Went on a date night with my wife. I had shepherd's pie and it was tasty. We had an appetizer of onion rings. Good selection of beers. My wife had fish & chips and became very ill afterward. **BE CAREFUL!** My wife has a shellfish allergy. The fried shrimp, onion rings, fish, etc. all are cooked in the same fryer.

I loved the shepherd's pie last time so went back some 2 years later. This time with a baby. It was as amazingly good food as I remembered. The corned beef and cabbage, we discovered, were even better than the pie...and I didn't know anything could be better. 2 adults, shepherd's pie & corned beef meals, 2 beers, around $55... More

We went with friends to enjoy some good beers and good food. Would definitely go back. The owners and the staff are really great people.

Service was attentive and beers were great. A lively and friendly place. Corn beef and cabbage was too salty; fried calamari was oily (sic) and rubbery; battered shrimp was crunchy and went well with the beers.
