Excellent pub food and beer garden

Staff are very friendly and efficient. Food was excellent and the pub provides a lovely outdoor environment on a warm summer evening. Fish and chips, Shepherds Pie and Mac & Cheese are all great.

We visited Macduff's Pub specifically because of the outstanding reviews that it was given by Trip Advisor. What a huge disappointment! I went hungry for Fish & Chips, as this was often referred to as "the best" around. The fish wasn't terrible, but the batter was very greasy. The cole slaw was actually quite interesting! I think it was seasoned... More

For our first night in South Lake Tahoe our concierge recommended this pub and gave us a 15% off coupon. It turned out to be a great meal, so after trying out other places over the week, we came back for our last night as well. I personally tried the American Burger & Carnivore Pizza, both of which were excellent... More

Went out boat fishing with my family in South Bay and was looking for dinner. Our concierge recommended MacDuff's Puff. It was a few minutes drive away from the main village but the food is authentic and brings back childhood memories of good, old taste of food. We had the steak stew in Guinness, sherpberd pie and pizza. Food was... More

Waitress was very nice. We had Shephards pie it was good but not great crust. The corned beef was fantasstic, tender and yummy. The blackened blue cheese bacon burger was wonderful, juicy and nice. Shrimp and slaw was also great. remember it is small.

This place is great. All the food is great. Pizza's are good, but the fish and chip are the best. The shepherds pie was soooooo good.

The staff is so friendly and fun! We love their fish and chips (and homemade tartar sauce!) but this time we also tried their pizza and French onion soup! So delicious! We have never been disappointed with any meal we've had there which is why we go there every time we're in Lake Tahoe! And DON'T confuse them with McP's... More

We’d been to MacDuff’s once before and loved it. This time was no exception. There were two couples and each shared a wedge salad and the fish and chips. The servings are huge that’s why we shared. The salads were fresh, an iceberg lettuce wedge, peppered bacon, blue cheese, tomatoes, candied walnuts and the fish and chips were served with... More

After reading reviews we decided to try Macduff's and were glad that we did. I had the fish and chips and they were excellent.

I sat here for a few minutes trying to summarize a title for our experience at MacDuff's. Parts of it were good, and other parts needed improvement. The menu has typical pub fare, which was just what we wanted. At the recommendation of the owner, who looked like a Scottish oak tree, we ordered the fish and chips. The portions... More
