Tam O'Shanter Ale and Sandwich Bar

What's the protocol for eating at the Ale and Sandwich bar at Tam O'Shanter? Do you sit down and someone takes your order or do you order your sandwich at the cutting station? Can you order off the regular menu?

  1. It seems to work every possible way. You can sit and someone will take your order. Sometimes, it's the carver. Or you can order directly from him, fast food style. If you want something from the regular menu, just ask him or a server and they'll get it for you. It's very informal. It's also very good.

    1. When is the sandwich bar open? Is it only on weekday lunches?

        According to their website:
        Sun - Fri: 11:00 am - 9:00 pm
        Saturday: 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

          OK, cool, so you can get it for dinner on a Friday. It's always closed when I go but maybe I usually go on Saturdays.

      2. If you are not in the mood for a sandwhich from the carver, they also do a pretty decent burger at the 'Tam.

        1. Avoid the ribs. They boil them then slather some BBQ sauce on them...huge abomination for such an established restaurant.

          1. What kind of sandwiches are we talking here? Of course prime rib (I assume) but anything else? Prices? Thanks.
