“Best dinner on our trip”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

You gotta eat dinner here. The fish and chips were by far the best ever. Great beer and service too!

“Amazing experiences at Macduff's :)”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The excellent staff at Macduff's is full of energy and excitement! The bar upstairs is unique and fun. The restaurant downstairs is nice and lively. The food is absolutely amazing and in addition is a great price! Their dessert is the best though... bread pudding. It sounds and looks yucky... but underneath that misleading exterior the taste is rich and awesome :) the two scoops of vanilla completes the fantastic dessert. I would recommend this place to anyone who has kids, is looking for a great place to eat, and seeking to have an amazing night!

“When it comes to pub food this place raises the Bar!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Large party had tremendous food and quality service. The fish and chips were awesome. Hand breaded everything made from scratch. The cole slaw had a delicious and unique taste. The corned beef and cabbage was authentic and excellent. Strong dill flavor to the cabbage and mustard taste in the corned beef, great! The Shepard pie was the best my group has had in years and that is saying something. In fact everyone loved their food. The hand cut fries and great beer selection put it over the top. This is a must visit in south Lake Tahoe.

“Not as good as advertised”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I went here because they will cook your fresh catch out of Tahoe if you go fishing. They charged like $15 or so per person to do this. They cooked our catch 3 ways: fried, blackened, and baked lemon-pepper. The food was just okay. They didn't clean the fish very well. The service was friendly, but unattentive. Tahoe is great, Macduffs is not.

“Nice local pub”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Not what I expected when we went. More of a pub. Got to see the dog as he wandered through the upstairs area. Scottish / Irish type cuisine was good. Enjoyed it.
