We caught our fish in the lake and we were able to take it to Mcduffs and they prepared it for us. Was very affordable and delicious. Had a fantastic beer selection as well. Will definatly come back.

This is my second visit to MacDuffs after fishing Lake Tahoe. They will cook your fish and serve a family style feast. The fish are cooked three different ways; Battered and fried, pink pepper sauce, and Cajun blackened. You also get fries, grilled veggies and cole slaw. It is an amazing feast.

I read the great reviews and I was not disappointed. I had the Steak and Guinness stew and my husband had the Shepherd's Pie and both were delicious.

Wow - this place has wonderful food. We took the fish we caught to Macduff's and they cooked it three different ways and served it family style. Best fish we have ever eaten. The best part - the bread pudding. Yummy! You have to try this warm delicious dessert.

The food in general tasted very good and was well prepared. The fries could have been more well done if you like crispy fries. I think Fries should be crispy on the outside. The burger, while being well-prepared with good ingredients was disappointing in that it was half the size of the bun. I mean literally there was at least... More

We'd been in once before years ago...a friend suggested we give it another try. So glad we did. Great (big) burgers, sandwiches, salads, pizza (cooked on the deck)...good beer/wine selection...and cocktails. Wait staff is amazing. Go.

I had business recently in South Lake Tahoe and was looking for a place for a late lunch. The ratings of MacDuff's from both TA and other rating sites almost sounded too good to be true but I figured it was worth a try. I'm glad I did. We ordered the fish and chips and the corned beef and cabbage.... More

My husband and I just got into Tahoe and saw the reviews of Macduff's and were eager to try it out. Let me just say the clam chowder was great to start and my husband had the fish n chips and it ranked in the top two of his favorites. He's a fish n chips junkie! The pieces of haddock... More

We visited Macduff's and were mightily impressed with the ambience and atmosphere of this cosy and busy pub. The food was delicious, the wait staff were magnificent and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We would definitely recommend this pub to visitors to this region.
