You must go here. And for the best treat of all, go on a Saturday night from 7-10PM to hear the best saxophone playing ever (by Ray Flows)!!! The atmosphere is always excellent. The service is always exceptional. And the food is always delicious. Plus, it's where all the locals hang out. If you're a local the only thing I... More

The Tartan is a great place for a low key, delicious meal. Their burgers are delicious. They also have live jazz every Wednesday!

I've lived in Redlands for years. I always viewed The Tartan as a dive bar. Big surprise. For Valentines Day my wife and I had an early reservation for dinner. The restaurant is a 60's time capsule. Wood paneling, Sinatra playing in the background; and, incredible prices and food quality. $5.00 cocktails, $19,95 New York steak. Rapid friendly service. Outdoor... More

Stepping into the Tartan is like stepping into a time capsule. Although I never visited the place before 2015, I just imagine it being the way it was decades ago. Im not saying this as a bad thing, it is actually really cool. The food is very delicious, and the service is great. The Tartan is a place you can... More

If you're looking for a burger, steaks, strong drinks and a definite lack of the younger, noisier crowd, this is your spot. Local institution - perfect slice of American food, spirits, and attitude.

The Tartan is a bit of nostalgia and a good vibe. The martinis are as classic as the decor. Family friendly and a great place to hang during any holiday as they decorate with pride. The Pork Chop is consistently excellent as is the Signature burger .

The decor could use some help, but the food is really good. I had the pork chop, which was cooked perfectly and my brother had the New York, which he loved. My fiance had the Penne Carbonara, which was good, but needed a little more flavor. The drinks were good, and our server was excellent.

The Tartan is classic Redlands. While known for their burgers, I ordered the California Chicken sandwich -- grilled breast, two crispy pieces of bacon, slice of cheese, avocado slices, tomato slice, lettuce all on a toasted bun. Delicious and at a reasonable price ($10). I swapped the swiss cheese on the menu for pepper jack and it was the perfect... More

This is a local watering hole serving a well established clientele for many years. Typically it will take a few seconds for your eyes to adjust when you enter into the cave-like atmosphere from the sunlight. Serving locals for decades, there is a well worn gin mill feel once inside. Give it a chance. Once your eyes adjust, you will... More
