Save room for dessert. The Bread Pudding is better than Grandmas. Great little Irish style Pub. Classics like Fish and Chips, Shepard’s Pie, even Pizza. During the summer they have an outdoor patio. Lake Tahoe is just a block away.

We were looking for a place for lunch with a cold beer before we could check into our condo. This place was perfect. Nice staff, good food and a nice selection of beers on tap

The food at the pub was very good and the entertainment afterwards was fun. Only complaint was they wouldn’t do separate checks!

We ate here twice this week during a visit to Lake Tahoe. Food portions are huge and very tasty. Staff were very busy but remained attentive to us and were great throughout. I would definitely recommend eating here. Good simple pub grub and beers. Winner!

We visited on a crazy, busy night (music festival in town). Macduffs was packed, but the service was excellent, food was delicious and the dessert worth every calorie!

During the summer months I don't think they have an issue with dogs on the outside patio, but otherwise, when service is strictly inside, no dogs allowed.
