Service was good and a decent choice of beers. The food was good and well presented. I will be back again.

I would agree with most reviewers, it is excellent pub food but at a linen table cloth price. We dined outside and don't have a clue what the inside ever looks like. First, the service was overall very good. However I personally prefer to have my own server rather than a team approach where every time some one serves us... More

Macduffs is a nice break from the other Mac-pub right on stateline. The food here is nice/higher end pub fair without being pretentious. The beer selection has micro brews from all over Northern California, which is solid. The atmosphere is very home like (it's in an old home), and there is a nice outdoor seating area that appeared to be... More

What a hoot is MacDuffs Pub. A "pub" in every sense of the word. From the moment the door is open you think your'e in a village pub somewhere in Ireland. Raucous, crowded very little space between tables. A real experience not to be missed when in Tahoe. Shepherd's pie is the dish to top all dishes. Very yummy and... More

I was recently in the UK and MacDuff's reminded me of a wonderful experience I had at a pub in Chiselhurst. MacDuff's has a cozy interior, a very nice patio, and shaded lawn with chairs just for drinking. We went three times, once for beer, once for dinner, and once for beer, cocktails and appetizers. We liked it. We like... More

Excellent atmosphere, food and drink! This is a regular place for locals and a must for visitors. I've never had a bad meal here. You can see the lake from the outdoor patio seating and during the winter they show old school snowboard videos on a big screen on the upper level.

I had a very good chicken sandwich with peppered bacon and my husband had a very messy burger. They serve way too many French fries which is a big waste. Don't know anyone that could eat all of them. Wanted to try the Shepard or cottage pie but they were $19 which is over priced. Casual place with nice outside... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner out on the patio. Good food, great service, nice beer selection! In addition to traditional Irish Pub food items, there were very nice salad and sandwich choices, too.

Service excellent with the friendly waitress and met our families needs with good pub food. Not for the light eater, portions beyond large and could have easily shared. Fun place
