The Duff clan can be traced back centuries in the Scottish Highlands. Years before the Romans arrived, Duffs governed and served the lands, and the family's place in history has lived on for generations through literature and even the works of William Shakespeare. MacDuff's Public House, which Yahoo! Food named as one of the "Best Irish Pubs in America for St. Patrick?s Day Celebrations", evokes the culture and spirit of Scotland with a spread of authentic dishes and the inviting atmosphere inside their Lake Tahoe destination.
Many of the dishes are inspired by owner Iain Sievwright's Scottish descent?he and his brother opened the original MacDuff's in Greenwich, Connecticut, after relocating from Aberdeen, Scotland. These specialties include shepherd's pie and Guinness stew, the latter of which is served in a house-baked bread bowl rather than a freshly blown pint glass. Whether in the area to ski or enjoy a summer getaway, visitors can savor other items such as wood-fired pizzas and lamb burgers. Bartenders complement meals with a selection of beers and spirits that includes regional craft brews and classic cocktails.
