Great steaks! Plenty of valet parking or you can park for free on side streets. Could be a little more Scottish menu wise. Smoked haggis? Pork pie?

I am a huge Lawry's Prime Rib fan. I've gone to the Beverly Hills and Las Vegas locations. I love this place because the food is excellent, the prime rib, creamed corn, yummy English Pudding- all of it. Well, The Tam O'Shanter (TOS) is part...More

I love this restaurant. I have been a customer for years. Best prime rib in LA. Great creamed corn and creamed spinach accompany it. Good choice for lunch or dinner. On my visit yesterday, I noticed that they are remodeling outside. Instead of the drive...More

Haven’t been to Tam O’Shanter since I was a teenager. It has never changed, known for their Prime Rib. It was excellent, service was very good.

Really enjoyed the food. They have a counter you can walk up to inside the restaurant and order prime rib that's cut right in front of you. Ask for the size you want and if you want blood running or not!! Mine was delicious. Others...More

We went to Tam O’ Shanter for an 80th birthday dinner. There were 10 of us, all ages and levels of mobility. To our surprise, and dismay, the parking lot was under construction and was full. There were no provisions for handicapped parking. We were...More

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

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!
