Always a fun and friendly atmosphere and service, the food is a little pricey but good and portions are large, kind of a dive bar atmosphere pool tables, live music, fun place to go for a night out and some drinks.

Went skiing in Heavenly this year and were looking a real pub. This was the only real pub we found and it turned out to be a pretty nice place. The place is kind of small and the Pub atmosphere is better upstairs but sometimes it's hard to get a table there.

The service was very fast - not the place for a long, leisurely meal. The servers were friendly and all work together to give you the best service. As the downstairs dining room was closed, we had to eat upstairs in the more informal bar area. My husband had the shepherd's pie which was good and I had the corned beef and cabbage. It was served in a soupy liquid which made the meal soggy. Will not order it again, but will go back and try their pizza or fish and chips which both looked good. Be sure and check out the kilts on display in the downstairs dining room.

While staying at the "Inn by the Lake", my family and I decided we were hungry after a long day of traveling. Not wanting to go very far, we were going to stop at the diner right near the restaurant...but on our way, my fiancé noticed "macduff's public house" tucked away down the street. We decided to go for it! Boy are we glad we did. The seating area is a bit small, but it adds to the charm big time. The staff was really friendly and made great recommendations. It is a little expensive for "pub food", but well worth it considering the quality. $18 for a WONDERFUL shepherds pie, or $15 for a mediocre Denny's entrée??? I'm thinking the extra 3 bucks is worth it! Since there were so many things that we wanted to try, we came back the next day for lunch and it was just as satisfying! You have to try the Shepherds Pie, Mac & Cheese, and the Tree Hugger Burger (one of the best veggie burgers I have ever had). Oh! and the bread pudding is unlike any other I have ever had. YUM! You wont be left hungry! We will definitely be going back.

Wow, this place was great! After a long drive to tahoe, we were starving! Decided to stop here since it was open on thanksgiving day while most businesses were closed. Upon entering, you could smell all the delicious, mouth watering smells emanating from the kitchen. We were seated upstairs. The owner was very friendly and hospitable. Started off with a beer, hamburger, and margarita pizza. Food was amazing! fresh, and homemade. Ended our lunch with the bread pudding dessert, omg it was sooo good! Hot caramel bread pudding, smothered in melting vanilla ice cream. We ate it so fast I didn't get a picture, haha.
This place was so great, we decided to cancel our thanksgiving reservation at another restaurant and came back here for dinner. They had their own special meal which was complete with all the fixings, potato soup, and dessert included. Will definitely return when we are in Tahoe!
