The Tartan is the quintessential steakhouse known for Prime Rib on Saturdays, an assortment of steaks, a Redlands Famous Tartan Burger, and a full bar.
We opened the doors on April 15, 1964. The Tartan was founded by three brothers Velmer, Al, and Art Ctoteau, and managed by Larry Westin who then became a partner. Mr. and Mrs. Westin owned it till Larry’s passing in 2003. The restaurant was then passed down to Larry Westin Jr. In 2015 the Tartan was sold to its current owners Jeff and Lisa Salamon.
Jeff was born in Boston Mass, and served in the Marine Corps. Even with the changes in ownership, you will find that the old-school atmosphere has remained and the reputation of being the Cheers of Redlands where everybody knows your name remains strong.
