This place is great. Organized pandemonium in an old style Irish Pub setting. The food is great. The people are fantastic. One of the best places in the area to eat, spend time watching the game or just having a beer. Service is beyond superb. Any and all staff that pass by your table will make sure that you have...

Food was very good. Portions were large . We had the fish and chips and it was enough for 2 of us to share. Our teenage grandson says it is the best Mac and cheese he has ever had and it was a very large portion. We were there early evening so was nice and quiet but as we left... More

I am a bit surprised about all positive reviews about this place. We ate there and 2 out of the 3 meals were just plain bad and the third was average. My daughter ordered the beef stew in a bread-bowl - there were maybe 3 piece of meat and they were all full of gristle and inedible. The bread-bowl was... More

Hot fresh food, great cold beer, fantastic cozy atmosphere, this place feels like what Americans THINK a pub should be. It can get crowded quickly, and with good reason, the palce makes you want to settle in! The menu is huge and has great options - Mac & Cheese, all the pizzas (wood-fired oven awesomeness) and the whole scottish pub-grub... More

MacDuff's has an old tavern feel with fast and friendly service. We were greeted promptly as we entered the bar at the top of the stairs and didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes for a 2-top table. The food portions are very large and there is a good selection of beer. We ordered the Corned Beef and Cabbage... More

Everything looked good on peoples plates. We shared a Wedge Salad and Margarita Pizza with added peppered bacon and both were very good. They have some good Irish... More

We went with a wedding party for dinner, we had a large group-, and we really didn't wait too long for our food. Everyone enjoyed their meal, the service staff was lots of fun - very accommodating.

Came here while visiting tahoe. It was great, friendly staff and great food. It got very busy so try to go at an off time or just plan to probably wait for a table. We loved the atmosphere and I can't wait to go back .

Nice ambiance, friendly wait staff, warm decor and everything you'd expect from a pub in the way of food (chicken pot pie, fish and chips) and drink (nice selection of ales). Would definitely go there again
