Super Pub to eat, drink and relax. We had one of the best thin crust pizza – garlic/sausage with great sauce and lots of cheese. Drinks were awesome and so was the service. Wish we lived closer – we would often be eating at MacDuff’s...More

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...More
