The Tam O’Shanter

Delighting diners for over 90 years, the venerable Tam O’Shanter is Los Angeles’ oldest restaurant in its original location still operated by its founders’ younger kinsmen. “Hoot mon!”

The Tam O’Shanter is a warm and welcoming outpost that dates back to 1922. Times may have changed, but they haven’t changed the good times we have with our mates.

World-Class Libations

We’ve been serving great cocktails since the repeal of prohibition.

From Across the Pond

Fancy something authentic? Our fish and chips, toad in the hole, and Scotch rarebit have been known to make Mr. McTavish shout, “Weel done, cutty-sark!”

Considering today’s health concerns, we have taken our time to carefully safeguard guests and co-workers alike. Reservations are now required, as are face masks when you’re not seated at your table. Social distancing, reduced contact, and touchless transactions are just part of the increased measures we’re now taking. Learn more about our reopening protocols here.

“We went to the Tam for its first day back taking customers.
They were welcoming, careful, and protective.
It was as if we were eating with family.”

—Mike via OpenTable

If you’re not quite ready to dine out yet, why not bring the Tam O’Shanter to your home? We have curbside pickup and delivery options available.

The Wall of Scotch at the Tam O'Shanter

Enjoy good cheer, warm hospitality and exceptional food in a cozy old-world atmosphere. 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, and maybe you’ll get seated at his favorite table (number 31, if anyone’s asking.)

“I love this place!
Amazing food, cosy environment, helpful staff!
I’m a Brit and it feels truly home from home.”

—Donna, Yelp

Today, we feature classic Scottish dishes alongside modern classics and, of course, Lawry’s famous prime rib dinner. With tartans of various Scottish clans lining our walls, a pub, a patio, many fireplaces and rooms that likely inspired Snow White’s cottage, the Tam O’Shanter is sure to delight one and all.

“Guid Health!”

—Mr. McTavish
