Great service and fun décor, tasty food, with a couple of disappointments. I spent the first 30 years of my life in Los Angeles, yet I'd never been to the iconic Tam O'Shanter in the Atwater Village neighborhood. After a family hike in Griffith Park,...More

The "Tam," as people call it, has been around for a long time, notable for its prime rib and also its fish and chips. The service is top-notch and the food is delicious and definitely filling. We went there for a birthday lunch, where you...More

Service was okay but the food wasn’t. Prime rib was under cooked and has more fat than meat. Turkey dinner was good but they brought extra beef gravy instead of the extra turkey gravy we ordered. Not a good dining experience tonight.

As JulieMack said, no dry rub on thr amazing prime rib. I would doubt that the potatoes have any gluten added and you'd need to ask your server about the creamed spinach and corn. You would have to skip the Yorkshire... More

Delighting diners for 90 years, the Tam O'Shanter is Los Angeles' oldest restaurant operated by the same family in the same location. Enjoy good cheer, warm hospitality and exceptional food in a cozy old world atmosphere. If you have some Scottish ancestry, you might even find your family tartan among the extensive collection decorating the walls!
