Enjoy the Tam O’ Shanter, the Oldest Restaurant in Los Angeles, at Home

tam o' shanter

Since 1922, the Tam O’ Shanter has been providing Atwater Village (well, at the time just Atwater) with delicious old fashioned food in a classic Scottish pub atmosphere. Located in what looks like a modern medieval cottage, the restaurant is the oldest operating restaurant in Los Angeles that remains in the same location and run by the same family. Its gorgeously decorated interior and beautiful outdoor dinner garden are a draw to many. Although these are not open right now, don’t worry. Like other restaurants, the famed venue has adapted for the current circumstances. Those wishing to enjoy a nice lunch or dinner from the Tam O’ Shanter can still enjoy the famous prime ribs, brisket, and sandwiches.

The Tam O’ Shanter, a Long History

For nearly a hundred years, the Tam O’ Shanter has been a Los Angeles staple. The Storybook Style restaurant on the corner of Los Feliz Boulevard and Boyce Avenue is well-known for its prime rib and Yorkshire pudding. Not only has the restaurant been a local favorite for nice dinners and business lunches for millions of people. It has also seen its fair share of history. In fact, you might see the plaque commemorating a frequent patron of the restaurant. During the fifties, the restaurant was a favorite spot of Walt Disney. He would get lunch with his team of Imagineers and discuss plans for his upcoming theme park. You can sit on their usual spot near the back.

Order Dinner for Delivery and Takeout

Of course, right now it’s not exactly possible to enjoy the restaurant’s unique Scottish atmosphere, its long history, or its beautiful garden. However, you can still enjoy their famous prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, and brisket dinner through local delivery and curbside pickup. For a limited time, you can even enjoy 50% or 25% off respective wines on their menu. Honoring their traditional role as a go-to location for holidays, they are even offering their distinct Mother’s Day menu. By visiting their website, you can order online and browse through their menu.
