The owner, Matt, runs the bar. I have never been there when he is not. The bar stools are filled with regulars, having a pint and watching the game. Matt talks to them by name. Good pub style food. Great selection of local and imported beers, and there is almost always one on special. Although it's been Tartan for a... More

Service was prompt and friendly, Beer was cold and the food was good. The decor was typical Canadian Scottish Pub. Just what you would expect with a name like "Tartan"

I took a seat & waited and waited with no response from anyone. After... More

I went to the Tartan for supper, a couple of beer, and to watch hockey. I was not too busy and I was served quickly. They had a decent selection of draft beer, although they did not have a hoppy IPA. Instead I had a Beau's Lug-Tread lagered ale, which was good. I also ordered a deluxe cheese-burger (1/3 pound)... More

Our hockey team booked a dinner party for 40.... the kids were served within the first hour of ordering but parents were still waiting after 2 hours. Food was average minus and NOT worth the wait. On the other hand drinks were served very quickly.

Dropped in here with 5-6 other people for drinks last night. The Tartan is nothing special, but some of my friends have an affection for it. The decor needs a cleaning or update, and some of the furniture needs some TLC. Alcoholic drinks are reasonably priced, but soda is a rip-off, at about 2/3 the price of a mixed drink.... More

A great pub! Has the look of a decent British pub, clean, but the food is excellent! Had the fish & chips, they let me substitute a garden salad for the fries. The salad was fresh & awesome; red pepper, carrots, lettuce & cucumber. Service is great, and quick. A great place to try and hang out with friends. P.s-... More

First time at the Tartan Pub for their Monday night Absolute Comedy Night. Fun night out - didn't have to drive to Preston Street, lots of parking right in front, good crowd, good show, good service, good food. Enjoyable evening out. Loved the convenience. Appetizers were all half price! Everything was good except the nachos. Not sure if they get... More

They have a nice variety of food and it's always good. The bartenders are great too, Orleans' finest! They have booths, regular tables, pub-height tables and bar seating plus a few TVs.

Everything that came out of the kitchen was piping hot. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was quite bland and borderline tasteless. The venue in need of a solid scrubbing down.
