We went here on a recommendation and loved it. My husband and I tried Cottage Pie, a first for us. Wow, that was fantastic. I'd make a trip back to Lake Tahoe for that alone. Service was great!!

The service was prompt and friendly, with no fewer than 4 people checking on us during our visit. The food was excellent. We had their fish... More

We went.here with three teenagers to have the fish we caught on a charter boat cooked up. We sat on the no frills patio outside and it was lovely. No heaters, fancy lights, weird lattice walls. Very tahoe and simple. We had great service. It was a little disorganized with two waitresses asking g the same questions, but who cares?... More

Food was good. Portions were large. The calamari and artichoke spinach dip delicious. Also ordered pork sandwich, pizza, and a mushroom/Swiss hamburger. Great bar with Scottish decor. No ocean view on the patio if that's what you are looking for...

Ate outside on the patio at Macduff's on our last night in town and it was a fantastic finale for our visit. The fish and chips, shrimp and chips, shepherds pie and caprese salad were all great. Portions were huge, service was handled efficiently and courteously with a team strategy, and the overall atmosphere was one of happy people enjoying... More

First I will say the fish and chips are excellent. So fresh and crispy. Tartar sauce was homemade (I think) with capers!! Soooo good. Fries were delicious as well, but hated to fill up on them when the fish was so tasty. The wedge salad was large enough for two to share and very fresh and delicious. Wasn't crazy about... More

We both had fish and chips with a side order of onion rings. The fish was excellent, the house tartar sauce was really, really good, and the onion rings were perfect. The pub seemed to be a nice blend of locals and travelers all seeking good food.
