This place is okay for a chain restaurant. The food is passable, but the selection of beers is poor at best. Initially it seemed as though the owner had been listening to the advice of the Charlotte Beer Club and was devoting more of their taps to craft, but since the opening they have dropped off considerably. Now, of their 20 taps, only 1 or 2 have decent craft beer while the rest are occupied with "crafty" or BMC beers.

The place is similar to Hooters, the waitresses are a bit scantily clad kind, but the girls are wearing kilts.

The servers are attentive and friendly, but know nothing of the beer menu. The downside is that I think they are a little pricey for the selection, and the lunch rush will leave you waiting for 20-30 minutes sometimes.

Overall: Friendly but uninformed servers, mediocre food, and poor beer selection.

Went to the Tilted Kilt today after some fishing. Brought a guy that had never been before, and he was more than impressed with the talented women hanging out in the foyer when we walked in.

The draft beer selection is impressive, they have OMB Copper, Dunkel, Foothills Maelstrom, Four Friends Uptown Brown, Highland Gaelic, Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard, Stone Russian Imperial Stout, Bell's Two Hearted, and many more. The girls behind the bar are more than friendly and will let you sample a beer or two if you ask them.

Today they tapped a keg of Saison du Buff and we all tried a small sample. Wow. That brew is highly impressive for a brew that has so many spices.

P.S. - The girls at Tilted Kilt put the girls at Hooters to shame...

I have been here several times, including openeing day, and wasnt too impressed on any of my visits. I have been twice for lunch and once for dinner. The atmosphere is okay. The bar area is pretty cool but the dining room is pretty lifeless. Large and vacuous and just your average sports bar feel.

The food is okay. I have had the burger which was good, but the sausage sandwich and the salads are not very good.

The beer leaves much to be desired. They have a decent, not good or great, beer selection that includes Stone products, New Belgium and not much else. The majority of the drafts are macro types with the typical "Scottish" and "Irish" drafts (like SMithwicks, Guinness, Harp, Stella, Killians, etc.). I would rate the selection as a 2.25. There are tons of better places to go in Charlotte for food and beer. If you want to look at hot waitresses, this is your place. However, as most bars and restaurants with the focus on "hot waitresses", the focus is on hot waitresses and not much else.

I havent been back since shortly after they opened and unless I am there on business, I wont go back again.

Beware, the wait for lunch is often over 30 minutes so get there early!
