My son and I have made it a tradition to go here. He loves the Shepard's Pie. We tried the onion rings this time and they are fabulous. The bread pudding is amazing. You cannot go away from this place hungry.

Was there on New years day. Went there after a hearing quite a few recommendations. From the hotel front office, guys on the Ski lift, and friends. Really liked the food, especially the beer. Also had their best bread pudding. Very nice ambience, Yummy food and great Service.

MacDuff's is a 5-minute taxi ride from Heavenly Gondola. The pub is quaint, the service is excellent, it is very casual and the food is great pub grub. Highly recommend this establishment for a great home cooked meal. The Shepherds Pie was the highlight and the the bread pudding dessert was delicious!

Guinness, Wild Mushroon Pizza, Wedge Salad. Very well done hand crafted very thin crust pizza, fast hot delicious! Offered a Turkey dinner as the special which we did not try. Off the beaten path but you should try it!

We had a great dinner here on a Saturday night, the place was busy but we didn't wait very long for a table. The craft beers were excellent. Mains included an awesome Corned beef which was tender and very tasty. The Caribbean spice burger & chips was also really good. Would definitely return - recommended!

Friends brought us here for the first time last weekend, and I will definitely be back. The beer selection is good, the lamb burger was "just OK." The real star of the show was the Shepard's pie. Outstanding! The calamari appetizer was excellent as well. We had no problem getting a table for lunch on Saturday, but I understand dinner... More

A must stop while in Lake Tahoe. We stopped for lunch and didn't expect such large portions. Definitely a bang for your buck. Food was excellent and service was great. Say hi to Bob, the restaurant mascot. Loved the quaint feel!

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 Pub.

The atmosphere was a classic warm Nordic style bar. Our server was very friendly and intuitively helpful. My family was into the extreme snowboarding video playing on the flat screen. The food was spot on. We enjoyed the chowder, French Onion soup, Reuben, beef stew, burger, and pot pie. Nice thick cut of homemade corned beef and fresh sauerkraut. Their... More
