Bring our tradition of good cheer, warm hospitality and exceptional food to your home or office. We’re proud to be in our 10th decade of continuous service. We originally considered it a quiet pastoral road stop, since Los Feliz Boulevard was just an unpaved country lane traversed by rabbits and rabbit hunters, in that order.
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.
As a family-run establishment, we’re committed to keeping our community safe. We always practice strong hygiene protocols and rigorously adhere to all CDC food safety standards.
So until we’re able to welcome you back in our dining rooms, let us bring a little comfort to you.

    it was my first time there and I was really looking forward to experience the indoor ambience to celebrate my brother’s birthday. Sadly, I was moved to an outdoor seating which I did not request since it’s away from everything, but they insisted that is what I booked which I did not. This happened to other people we overheard that were sat outside as well. Besides the outdoor seating, the food and service were really good. I do recommend that if you want to experience the ambiance inside which looked really nice, to call the restaurant and book an inside dining experience through them.

    Our waitress was Okay, she did not bring us bread/butter. We had asked for the ceasar salad and she forget to ask us if we wanted anchovies. We asked for them and she charged us $2.00each even though we split the salad. She never came back the entire meal. If it was not for Gabriel the bus person, who saved the meal by being super attentive we never would have had such an enjoyable time. He saved the meal in so many countless way. He should be promoted to Waiter! Thanks Gabriel the Angel! By the way My girlfriend has come here as a child for over 50years on every special occasion and she was also impressed with Gabriel attentiveness!

    We had Thanksgiving dinner at the tam-o’-shanter, my mom‘s favorite restaurant. She is 91 and has been enjoying many happy occasions at this restaurant for 75 years. We arrived early for our reservation and the hostess could see that my mom was old and had difficulty walking and assigned us to a table that wasn’t as far as the one we were originally booked for. I could see in her eyes that she knew table 38 would be easier for her to get to. Everyone was friendly, from the young man who seated us and patiently asked my hard of hearing mother several times how her day was going until she understood him, to the gentleman who welcomed us and brought water to the table, lovely Tristene, who waited on us and cheerfully served cocktails, apps (scotch rarebit YUM!!!) Entrees, dessert and coffee. The busser charmed us as well. Turkey was moist, stuffing well seasoned, gravy was plentiful and the trifle as delicious as ever! We enjoyed a leisurely dinner despite the fact that the Tam was packed. It was an absolutely lovely evening and we even came home with leftovers!

    The Thanksgiving Turkey dinner was one of the worst meals I have ever had. Dry tasteless stuffing and potatoes and soggy, overcooked broccoli. The turkey was in dry chopped pieces (not sliced bit my husband’s was sliced yet still dry). Tasteless gravy. Never again.

    Love the ambience! Can’t get that at any restaurant. Prince Charlie cut, tam o Shanters cut and thanksgiving dinner plate. The bartending staff made a drink called the “Aviator” and it was delicious! Wish they would serve shrimp cocktail in a cup like tradition would have it. This place is a gem!

    Could of been seated right away but we wanted to go into the bar first. Which they were fine with. Ordered the Scotch Rarebit first and it was delicious. Shared a large salad but to much dressing on it for me. Next time will order it on the side. It was good dressing though. The bread was delicious. Started getting full so we shared the fish and chips and it was very good. Just took awhile to be served. They don’t rush you at all. Had a hot fudge Sunday. It was good but could of had a bit more ice cream. Toasted almond were very good on it. We will be returning! Our waitress was Jill and she was very nice.
