Went fishing on Lake Tahoe today and caught some nice lake trout. Mcduffs prepared the fish for us three ways... Dill cream sauce, blackened and beer battered. Absolutely cooked to perfection! We also ordered a number of other dishes that were great. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

'had lunch here and food was great--nothing fancy, but we weren't looking for something fancy!!! Beer/wine menu was interesting--some were listed as "market price?" All listed the brewery/distillery and how many miles away--really fun, since some were from Ireland, Scotland, England, etc.

I don't even know where to start. Service was amazing. They have a rotating tap for ipa and nitro. Cozy place with a real pub feel. Ordered the shepherds pie and truffle mac and cheese with bacon. They both were sooooooo perfect! I would say this place is a MUST if you are in town. And, don't forget the bread... More

We were in the mood for fish and chips so we headed to Macduff's. It is in a less-touristy area of town than our hotel was, which was nice. It has the feeling that the locals hang out there. We ordered the fish (haddock) and chips and the shrimp and chips. Both were very good; the breading was light and... More

The food was pretty good. I thought when we had the bread pudding the ice cream melted really fast with it on top of it, so it should probably go on the side. The worst part of the dinner was that a guy had his dog on a stool next to him at the bar and the dog was eating... More

We dropped off our fresh fish earlier that day, and came in for 8:00 reservations. Fresh Lake Trout, cooked to yumminess, 3 ways, fish and chips, Baked with Sherry Cream sauce, and blackened. It was yummy and too much food. It came with slaw, veggies, and a huge salad. Atmosphere was a bit loud for my liking. Bachlorrette party and... More

I ordered the lamb burger and my wife had the shepherd's pie. Both were excellent as i finished my wife's. Healthy portions and great drinks. All the servers team up and make sure every table is being tended to. Never had an empty glass or an unattended issue. Food came out promptly and they serve smaller portioned versions of several...
