I've been here for diner before and it's good. Not that many side choices available which I did not like. BUT, they have a delicious lunch sandwich bar. I've had the beef brisket ( my favorite), prime rib and the pork. They are sooooo good, the meat is very tender! You have a choice of bread that is very soft. You can also get a side of coleslaw and potatoe salad.

We've been going to Tam O'Shanter since I was a kid. It's the first in the Lawry's stable and is so charming with a country inn feel and decor. Lunch? Don't miss the absolutely best double-dip brisket on an onion roll. My grandson called the au jus "black gold!" For dinner you can get the same awesome prime rib that you get at their Lawry's signature restaurants. Also, in the winter, don't miss succulent duck done on a glass-in rotisserie in the main dining room. I've salivated watching those birds go round and round. Last night I had trout ... large portion and just wonderful.

Food was very good as expected. Service was outstanding which is why this place has been here for 92 years. We will return for sure.

I've always been a big fan of Tam O'Shanter's lunch in the bar area. It seems like something has changed there. The usual chef at the carving station wasn't there and the menu board was no longer there either. Perhaps they are making some changes, but I did like it the old way.
