A word from Tilted Kilt
Welcome to Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, where good times are always on tap. That's because we're more than just a restaurant, and so much more than a sports bar. Our fun, festive atmosphere makes us the go-to place to watch sports, enjoy a cold beer and hang out with friends. We offer a delicious, mouth-watering menu, more than 40 draft and bottled beers to choose from and an extensive spirit selection. All this, plus year-round, nonstop pro and college sports action on all of our 42 HD screens.

    It just felt blah from the moment we stepped into the restaurant. It reminds me of a cheap, franchised gentleman's club. If I was mid 50's, unhappily married I may have enjoyed the experience. Ordered a drink that should've been great but it was blah. Just didn't enjoy myself

    This place is awesome. The food is good and the service is outstanding. It will get quite noisy during a big game but that is expected. If you like Scottish themed pubs you will love this place, I do. So go for a good time and remember to tip well.

    Despite an overflow crowd, the restaurant did their best to find us a seat and they kept us updated in terms of how much longer it was going to take to seat us. Really good management. So, I shall return! Good job to the kilt!

    There is a good variety of menu items to choose from. The beer cheese soup is outstanding! The service was great. Some of the specialty seasonal beer selections came with a higher than expected price, which the server informed me of when I ordered, so there were no unpleasant surprises when the bill came. Casual sports bar atmosphere, in a comfortable pub decor.

    We just went to watch the UFC pay-per-view while we were in Chicago. Food was average at best, and "scenic views" provided by the waitresses were hardly worth what you had to pay to park in downtown Chicago.

    First time to a Tilted Kilt. I don't think I'll be back. Food was okay pub food. The scenery was less than expected. MayBe I'm spoiled as a New Yorker but the talent in Chicago was underwhelming.

    Yes, ladies abhor the fact that men go to these establishments to gawk. But, as far as "sports bars" are concerned, Tilted Kilt has what people (not just boys/men) want - - casual atmosphere, a little bit of background noise, a variety of sports playing on T.V. and solid food choices whether more traditional (Hamburgers, Nachos, etc.) or something unexpected (Salads, fish, etc.). Worth it for the food (ladies, look the other way while your men gawk at the beauties).

    When I reached there no one cared. I had to ask attendant to sit us. After sitting it took 5 min. before someone dropped off menu. She did not introduce herself. We waited another 10 min. no one cared to come ask for order. Finally we decided to leave without eating or drinking there.

    First, Holly was a great waitress. Punctual, polite and attentive. And you know what?! When people rate tilted kilt they always down it for the uniforms but... You GO THERE for the uniforms and yes holly is pretty which helps :). The buffalo chicken flatbread pizza was great. The beer specials were $4 and $5 which is great for the city, there was plenty of room an the Tvs were AWESOME for sports. It's one of the very few places you can catch a game in that area without dropping a small fortune. Overall a great experience, very affordable, and we will be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/5/2013
    We were a large group of 15. We had an hour to order and eat because we were heading to a play. Our food starting arriving with about 25 minutes to go, which was great. Unfortunately, it took 15 minutes from the first plate to the last plate to get served! It was ridiculous. The waitress gave a lame excuse about the size of our party. They are serving over a 100 people in the restaurant. The kitchen should be able to serve a large group within 5 minutes. We only had one waitress and we should have had two. Other than that, food was good.

    We went for. My brothers bachelor party. We had 15 guys and we had 9 orders of buffalo wings and 3 orders of nachos. Our waitress and the other waitress es were great and kept checking in. For any party like this I would definitely reccomend. We split the bill and only paid $23. Each. We also had 6 buckets of millet lite

    The meal descriptions on the menu make it sound wonderful. But, when we got our order (grilled spicy sausage), it didn't match our expectations. For one, it wasn't spicy! The potato skins were ok, the chips were crunchy but plain, and the sandwich roll wasn't exciting either. Our waitress, Alison, was attentive and kind, which was the only perk! I am thankful we used our OpenTable credit here so that we didn't pay full price for the experience!
