    The prime rib plate is too good! Seasoning it with their salt and pepper makes it even better. $22 was worth it!

    Rumor has it that this was one of Walt Disney's favorite places to dine. If you get a seat in a back room, it certainly does feel like a Snow White/Sleeping Beauty cottage in Fantasyland!

    A city treasure. Enjoy a great cut of Lawry's prime rib, or, better yet, try the Tam's signature Toad in the Hole for filet mignon in a giant popover / Yorkshire pudding bowl.

    I recommend the Tam O’Shanter prime rib cut. All the sides are family style, try the Mac’ & cheese and creamed spinach! Live bands are there on weekends!

    The prime rib is always outstanding! But if you are looking for a fine dining experiwnce , stay away from the pub. At least on Tuesdays, it gets overcrowded and loud..Make a reservation!

    The Prime Rib is a must, as are the souffle's. Good wine list. Kid friendly. We go every time we are in L.A. area.

    Opened 1922. Designed by storybook architect Harry Oliver. Classic Scottish steakhouse with ornate interior.

    The Prime Rib is still the best overall place for prime rib in Los Angeles, but this Scottish cottage in Atwater Village, owned by the same company, offers pristine prime rib in an unbeatable space.

    The Toad In The Hole is perfect ale food: filet mignon, pearl onions, mushrooms, and Yorkshire pudding.

    Regular Walt (the 1st Disney studios were nearby) was inspired by the pubs wood-frame Tudor building. Mary Pickford and Tom Mix were also fans of the hearty Scottish menu which has changed little.

    I've only ordered prime rib here, and for good reason. The lemonade is good but perhaps a tad too tart, as it actually made my throat hurt.

    Order the Moscow Mule: "spicy, not too sweet and sneakily alcoholic, with the odd, velvety fizzing sensation that happens when carbonation encounters soft metal."
