That’s when Walt Disney and his animators, set designers and crews would trek out between takes for a bite and a refreshment. So often in fact, the Tam was once dubbed “the studio commissary.” Join us and see why the Tam is said to have been Walt’s favorite restaurant.

We had two scotch drinkers in our group and they wanted a particular brand and that was not available, they each chose another (two different brands) and they were also not available. We chalked it up to just returning from the pandemic and costs, but it set the wrong tone to start. Our service from Jennifer was everything a restaurant could want, so kudos there. Two dinners were really good and one not so much. We will still go back and truly love the Tam. I believe when everything is back to normal we have the same old Tam O'Shanter and we look forward to it.
Iconic restaurant with excellent, friendly service and delicious food. The prime rib was yummy with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach.
Our waitress was fantastic. See you soon. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$7777777
Prime rib was very tender, though not as well marbled as Lawrys in Beverly Hills. The food was brought out quickly.
Love the new menu items. Service was exceptional. Already planning my next dinner out!
Server was nice and helpful. Overall value was good
Thanks for the review, Tommy! Cheers :)
All good as usual …except bring back the deviled eggs!
Thank you for the review, Yoko!
There were no tables available indoors so we had to sit outside at a plain table with
loose gravel flooring. Not the same ambience as in the past. Servers were very helpful. Everyone pitched in to make sure the food was delivered in a timely manner. Friendly staff.
Thank you, Lawrence, for sharing your experience and for your understanding of accommodations. We do hope you come back again soon and that we can ensure a better experience. All the best.
Terrific food in the kind of place your parents went to celebrate special occasions. Wonderful set-up with some of the best service I've ever seen. And try the rarebit. It's delicious.
Thank you for the review and the stars! All the best :)
Thank you for the review and joining us on such a special day. Happy Anniversary.
Prime rib needs better presentation

The Tam O'hanter Cut prime rib is always delicious.
Happy they brought back the chocolate soufflé. Its so chocolatey and amazing topped with the creme fraiche.
The mojitos were refreshing.
Thanks for sharing the details of your experience with us, Maddy! Wishing you all the best and we hope you return soon :)
A great time was had by all! Prime rib, Pimm’s cups, red wine, chocolate soufflé, and champagne—what’s not to like? Our server was a consummate pro.
Thank you for sharing your experience & the yummy details! Please come back soon :)
Wonderful food and the outside patio is perfect for avoiding close contact with others!
Thanks for the review, Randi! We're happy you enjoyed our patio dining :) All the best.
An LA classic not to be missed - hasn’t missed a step from Covid. We all need to support gems like this
Thank you for the review, Laura, and the recommendation! Please come back soon :)
Fun patio area. Good vibes
Thanks for the stars and review! Please come again soon :)
The prime rib was the best I have ever had. It just melts in your mouth. The creamed corn was amazing
Thank you the the review, Nett! Cheers to Prime Rib :) We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent from entering the property to leaving. Greetings and service was wonderful. The meal was an epicurean’s delight. The brisket was cooked to perfection.
Thank you for sharing your experience and for the stars! Please come back soon :)
We used to dine at Lawry's in Singapore quite often. Lawry's bought the historic Tam O'Shanter, and offers Lawry's prime rib, with the restaurant's historic vibe.
Thank you for the review, William. We hope you join us again soon. Wishing you all the best.
Not what it used to be
Thank you for the review, Mr. Hill. We apologize we fell short of your expectations. Please share with us how we can improve, so we can work to insure a better experience in the future. Wishing you all the best.
I’ve gone here over the years because of memories attached to the people I was with, but have never really been a fan of the food, and unfortunately I was reminded of that yesterday. While I’m glad they’re open, so many other restaurants put effort into making the outdoor dining experience nice, and this was a hodgepodge of outdoor patio furniture, indoor chairs, while under a tent. I’ve decided this is probably a lunch place where you can just get a sandwich rather than a $200 evening for two people.
Thank you for the review. We apologize we fell short of your expectations. We will share your review with our management and will work to insure a better experience in the future. Wishing you all the best.
Our server was incredible!! Was so personable and friendly and great with a table a teenagers and over middle agers.
Thank you for the review, Jamie! Please come again soon :) All the best.
Love the Tam! Drinks and food are excellent.
Our server, Jonathan was friendly and attentive.
Thank you for sharing your time with us, Abby! We appreciate the review and are grateful for Jonathan. We hope you come again soon :) All the best.
I enjoyed the prime rib and my son and wife were delighted with the filet. The food was served hot, at the same time, and cooked properly to order. I missed the salad, thinking it was included. I was surprised to see a chunk of fat an inch wide and two inches long in the center of my prime rib. I would have sent it back, but a) I was hungry, and b) I know how hard it is to get the highest quality provisions at the moment. We did ask for more bread, but it never came. The parking was easy, we were greeted as we walked in the door and taken to our table. Service was fast and everything was tasty. I have been coming here since the '50's and the place brings back fond memories of dining there with departed family members.
Thank you for the review and sharing the details :) We're grateful for our loyalty and look forward to having you back in the future. All the best!
Spot on just like always. Love the outdoor patio.
Thank you for the stars and review, Heather!
I had so much fun last night. It was a reunion with 5 friends. The staff was excellent and very solicitous. The variety of food and cocktails was great. We sampled new items
Thank you for the review! Wishing you all the best and we hope you and your friends come back again soon :)
This nearly-100-year-old restaurant isn't inexpensive, but it's always very good. The brunch menu has something for everyone and the choice of dining inside or on the large patio is a bonus. Plenty of easy parking, also. This is one of my favorite Los Angeles restaurants.
Thank you for the review, Donato! Please come again soon :)
Great historic location. Good ford. Outstanding bar. Excellent service.
Thank for the stars and review! Please come back soon :) Wishing you all the best.
Average meal at a high price. Restaurant is run down. Ambiance, especially given the price, is not good. Noisy and wait staff is unattentive.
Thanks for sharing your experience, Stephen. We apologize we fell short of your expectations. We will share your review with our management and will work to insure a better experience in the future. Wishing you all the best.
The food is decent here. Not great, not bad, but certainly worth a visit if you're a fan of history, Disney, and the charming cottage look of the Tam O'Shanter. Our primary server was nice, if a bit slow, but other employees that came by seemed clueless. Our table was cluttered with empty plates after the appetizers, and they didn't even clear the table at that point (standard practice).
However, the worst thing was the ambiance. We sat on the porch, and they were playing 70s rock. The Tam's entire appeal is in the charming Scottish cottage look and feel and menu, and 70s funk/rock and soul pretty much ruined the ambiance entirely.
Not sure who made this decision or how that happened. It was so shockingly awful it was almost funny.
Thanks for the review, Nathan. We apologize we fell short of your expectations. We will share your review with our management and will work to insure a better experience in the future. Wishing you all the best.
Lunch outside and the weather was great and the food and service first rate.
A great date place. Great ambiance, food and service. At 5pm very open and relaxed with immediate service. My date was impressed and loved it.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Joseph! Wishing you all the best and come back soon :)
Think the creamed spinach has changed. Didn't seem to taste the same as before. Maybe not as fresh?? Nevertheless, have been a fan for your years and it's always nice to be there and see such lovely staff.
Thank you for the review, Janet! Thanks for sharing your experience, Renee. We will share your review with our management. Wishing you all the best.
Very good food and service.
Thank you, Beverly! Wishing you all the best and come see us again soon :)
Tam O'Shanter is always good. The staff is friendly. Service was quick, and accurate.
Thank you for the review! Please come back soon :)
Understaffed - Waiter had at least 8 tables outside to service, an impossible number to handle well. Waiter did not know menu - told us there was garlic in creamed corn and creamed spinach, but those who had those dishes sensed none. Food came cold to table. But, it came without utensils, which took several more minutes to get. No salt or pepper on the table. Outdoors on gravel base in a tent with many bulbs out = zero ambiance.
Not an experience that either Lawry's or Tam O'Shanter can be proud of.
Thanks for sharing your experience, Ken. We apologize we fell short of your expectations. We will share your review with our management and will work to insure a better experience in the future. Wishing you all the best.
