The atmosphere was a classic warm Nordic style bar. Our server was very friendly and intuitively helpful. My family was into the extreme snowboarding video playing on the flat screen. The food was spot on. We enjoyed the chowder, French Onion soup, Reuben, beef stew, burger, and pot pie. Nice thick cut of homemade corned beef and fresh sauerkraut. Their... More

The clam chowder is to die for! I should have just ordered that in a bread bowl for dinner. We splurged and ordered the fish and chips and Shepherd's pie. Both were delicious! Lots of garlic fries with the fish. Our daughter ordered the mac and cheese. She was happy! The ambiance is nice and cozy British Pub. Definitely will... More

We went here for dinner 1st night in the area. Service was great. nice family friendly atmosphere yet a pub. Food was really good fish and chips great. Our son got the beer battered nuggets on the appetizer menu more than enough for a meal! Adult cocktails were good also!

We had the corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips and bread pudding. The corned beef was very tender and it came with a wonderful mash potato side. The cabbage could have been cooked a bit longer. The fish was wonderful - not overcooked like most fish and chips. The chips were skinny and I prefer the steak fries. The... More

Macduffs is off of the beaten path in South Lake Tahoe, but is well worth the search.From the outside looks like a little white house but inside you will find a restaurant with great food and 2 bars they serve upstairs and downstairs.They have tvs visible everywhere,so great place to watch the game.I will be back.

Mcduff's is off Lake Tahoe Blvd about 1 block, so you might pass by it never knowing it was there. BUT you need to go here to eat while in Lake Tahoe. The food and service are very good and the staff is friendly. Everyone was always smiling. We tried the fish and chips which were plenty enough to feed... More
