“Great local Pub and Grill!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Didn't feel like going to the casino so I asked for a good local bar. I was told to try macduffs. It was a great bar the service, food, and atmosphere was great. I would recommend the fish n chip, pizza, and the bread pudding.

“Great food - a favorite of locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

The place is small and has no wow factor for atmosphere, but the service was good and the food was great. The Mac and cheese appetizer was absolutely great. I had corn beef and cabbage which was the best I have ever eaten. The service was good and prices were reasonable. It is off the beaten path, but worth finding.

“A TRIP ADVISOR-FIX THE FLOOR!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Let's get to the issue that bothered me, THE FLOOR! The floor is higher around the tables leaving it raised so that the chairs are uneven with floor. A man across from us (being that the floor is uneven) , while getting up, had his chair fall backwards. He hit his head on the floor! This seemed like it has happened before and should be addressed!!! The the host politely mentions to "watch your step" while entering the dining area to each new party to be seated.tHowever,this doesn't help w/the uneven table issue.
I am surprised that the uneven entry isn't lighted up and/or the flooring be EVEN throughout the area.

On another note: the people that work there are VERY nice, eager to please and the food is quite good. I had a freshly ground burger that they put on salad instead of a bun. That was really fresh.The other dish was the fish and chips.

This place has wonderful help and food BUT PLEASE help the customers by fixing the floor!!!

“Looking for the correct accolade....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Outstanding isn't good enough. Fabulous has been used before. I'm not finding the correct accolade that this business deserves. I had 15 family/friends over to celebrate my birthday and not only did they locate us in a private area away from noise (so that I could be roasted properly), but they provided extraordinary service. Every guest had the option to choose from the menu independently (as opposed to arranging 2-3 choices for everyone) and they meticulously had everything prepared and delivered at THE SAME TIME! The entire order for 15 people came out together and our servers remembered exactly were each plate belonged. (Very impressive). Needless to say the food was fantastic and meet every expectation my guests had. MacDuffs staff was very accommodating, allowing us to decorate the area and just overall …. well … we had 15 happy people and everyone talked about how well MacDuffs had handled the event. Thank you everyone at MacDuffs .
And for you readers, sure MacDuffs is an outstanding place for a few friends, but if you happen to have an event …. I would definitively consider placing them in the #1 spot if you’re having an event/party in South Lake Tahoe.
