I did not realize this was an Scots-Irish themed hooters type restaurant when I bought the groupon so it was a little weird to go there as a single woman surrounded by half naked waitresses. Â That being said the food was outstanding. Â I had the gaelic chicken and it was just this side of being as good as my sister's homemade recipe. Â The serving was huge, I took home leftovers and had enough for two additional meals. Â The cookie sundae was extremely good. Â Next time I make homemade cookies, (which will be never) I plan on making one. Â I would definitely recomend as a great place to eat and to watch sports.Review Source:
Roxee and Jill are awesome ladies that took care of my needs for a few late night drinks and a sandwhich. June 11 2011. The door greeter was very attentive to my questions about the place and i loved her for that. There was another greeter that greeted my nephew and was messing with him and he loved it. He said she was hot! Bonus points for Uncle, hell yeah! Jill just started guys so be gentle with her and tip her well! She is a hottie and deserves money! Thank you for being attentive!Review Source:
The Tilted Kilt of Clearwater
I went there for the first time last November to eat dinner and watch the tv show "Undercover Boss" because the Tilted Kilt's ceo Ron Lynch was
being featured incognito. Well I have eaten at the location in Mesa, AZ so
then I knew what to expect from this place. I got there just as the tv show
started and got seated quickly. My server was friendly and told me how she
was a vegetarian. Did not expect to hear that though I ordered one of my
favorite menu items which was the pastrami sandwich w/garlic fries with a
glass of Guinness Stout. The sandwich was tasty though meat was obviously
pan fried and greasy and the marble bread was good too. The fries had lots
of garlic flavor though a bit salty and greasy too. I will also recommend the
shepherd's pie and blue cheese burger as well since these are some of my
other menu favorites. The shepherd's pie for those who have not tried one
comes in a piping hot black kettle type dish so don't touch the sides! Very
tasty the first time I ate one and will order it again.Overall I had a nice time
that night and would return. The place is basically an american sports bar
and grill with an irish-scots twist. The lady servers are young and sexy
and the service is usually reliable though can be hit and miss depending
on how busy the location gets. Their target market is definitely single men
who like to eat and drink while being served by attractive twenty-something
women though have seen both couples and families at the location in Arizona.
Had lunch here with a Â friend today. Â She ordered a salad that looked fresh, and she said it was very good. Â I chose the black and blue burger. They cooked the meat correctly, and the "add on" onion rings were crispy and good. Â
I will say that the menu is pretty basic, and nothing really "stood out" as their specialty offering.
It is another restaurant based on low cut tight blouses, but I was not the restaurant selector in this case. I must say that the staff is lovely! Â Still didn't make the food taste better, though..
We ate in the bar area and the service was just right. Â Lots of TV's to see your favorite teams.
One negative - getting south on US 19 from here is very difficult - and the traffic on the service road is a real mess. Â I suggest jumping over to McMullen Booth to avoid the traffic mess, if your heading to south Pinellas.
Got to the Tilted Kilt late in the afternoon for a late lunch. 4 pm the place was 1/2 full. They had plenty of TV's showing the big NASCAR crash. We ordered the following:
Black and Tan Â Â Â 4 stars only got one the tap for the Guinness broke
TK Red Lager Â Â Â 4 stars nice smooth flavorful
Black and Blue Burger Â 4 stars The burger was good not enough blue cheese
Fish and Chips Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 4 stars nice color nicely done
Pastrami Sandwich Â Â Â Â 2.5 stars the pastrami kinda greasy and pan fried
TK Cheese Burger Â Â Â Â Â 4 stars good burger
Garlic Fries Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 2 stars soggy limp and they added lots of Parmesan
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â cheese
The Service was good. and when we left the entire place was full of Spring training Phillies fans. Go for the burgers and beer.
I had been to this Tilted Kilt three or four times over the past few years and had always had a good time, so I was more than happy to buy a groupon when it came up.
When we got there, the hostess took about a minute and a half to seat us. Not horrible, but I was a little confused why it took so long as there were only four other tables seated at the time and a surplus of waitresses just standing around chatting at the food window. We were sat, and then it was easily five more minutes until the hostess came back- we listened to the entirety of "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions". She had come back to tell us that she sat us at the wrong table, and that was why Â no one had come to take care of us yet. We get up, move over to the new table, and happen to be seated next to a table full of four gentlemen that were enjoying their night very loudly. Of all the open tables in the restaurant, we were put next to the most obnoxious. It was several more minutes before the waitress came to take our drink order. She had been sitting at the table next to us with the loud, drunk gentlemen and could plainly see we were there. Once she did get our drinks, she disappeared for a while longer, running shots back and forth to the other table, sitting and chatting, etc. We had ordered the garlic fries for an appetizer, but they had arrived cold and soggy after we had ordered our meals. Between her running around for the other table, it wasn't until the bill had come that she stuck around long enough to ask us how everything was, and we had the chance to tell her about the fries. When told that they were cold and soggy, she pointed out that they would be after sitting on our table the whole time and didn't seem to believe that they came out that way. She did take it off the bill, but the way she handled it was rather rude. We were also rather unimpressed with how the food came out- the Shepherd's pie was really good, but there didn't seem to be enough meat, veggies and sauce compared to the amount of potato that was in the pot. My fiancÃ© had gotten the Big Arse Burger, medium rare. It came out more towards well done, but again- never saw the waitress until she came back with the check so it couldn't be brought up.
I used to love going to the Tilted Kilt, but with all the other options available in the area I probably won't be back of my own volition.
I know I'm supposed to be distracted by the huge beer selection and my waitress with the skirt cut up to her g-spot... but the food sucks. If you are going to put the word "Eatery" in your name, you have to try a little... and they don't. Â
Lots of great beer on tap and many games on big screens but that's where the awesome stops. The food tastes like the usual frozen shlock you would find in most corporate cloned bars. And this place is not unique just because they make the waitresses dress like Catholic school strippers.
But if that is all you are looking for, this is the place. Just remember, you're server doesn't think you're cute, she wears that micro-kilt for all her customers.
A good place for some cold beer, good food, and scantily clad female servers. Â
Service seems a bit slow at times but was not overly so. Â I ordered a flatbread pizza which was great, a friend had wings which were also good.
The only negative here (which may be due to deficient training) is bar service. Â Drinks that were ordered (Rum and coke) had no taste of rum. Â When a double rum/Coke was ordered, there was no taste of rum. Â Thirty dollars in rum drinks later we asked for a manager to investigate what was occurring. Â No real resolution to the problem came about, but I asked if we could have a "full" shot of rum for our drinks comped....the gracious manager complied and apologized and delivered our shots of rum for our drinks. Â
Perhaps its just a training issue with the young bartender on that night. Â No biggie...our issue was resolved, but only for our last drink. Â Beer specials were awesome (a Smithwicks Ale) was on special for $3.50 for a pint....can't beat that. Â
Service was great and delivered with a laugh and flirty flair....just as it should be at this chain. Â A good job but some improvements could make this place excel.
At the insistence of a guest who was in town, we had dinner here the other night. Â The only thing that was decent was the Irish Nachos app, which I could make at home to be honest. I have no idea what was Irish about it, but with thick potato chips covered and beef and cheese how could you really go wrong? Though the service was fine, everything else was mediocre, forgettable, and not worth the price.
They do have lots of TV and drink prices weren't outrageous. I'd squarely put this place in the category of going only for a couple of drinks and maybe an appetizer if you want to watch the game. Anything else just won't be worth it.
What is there to say about this place? It's a chain. I strolled in here with a buddy of mine after a grueling day at the arcade and decided to have a couple pitchers before heading home. Our bartender was great. She was on top of her game. Albeit , it was just around 2p on a weekday so business was slow. Happy hours are actually a really good deal! I believe it was $0.99 mugs for domestics. We were, unfortunately, finished just as HH had started. We grabbed ourselves a mug each before calling it a day. Lesson learned. Arrive later.Review Source:
This place did not compare favorably to the two, recently opened, Tilted Kilts I've been to in PA. While it looked like a Kilt, the vibe was somehow off from the moment I entered the place.
Just one hostess at the entrance and not overly friendly or enthusiastic while seating me or when I left. My server stopped by promptly but it was very much a "what would you like to drink?" conversation, no welcome, no my name is, have you been here before, our drink specials tonight are...
This continued for the rest of the visit. No recommendations, no do you have any questions, enjoy your meal, do you need anything... Essentially no conversation.
I will admit that drink and food came reasonably promptly, as did my bill when I was finished.
Lackluster at best and it seemed the norm here. Girls seemed to "man" their stations, did not linger whatsoever with the customers. This is quite the contrast to the ones here in PA where the girls know the menus, often have tried many items themselves, make recommendations, make conversation, and are in general FRIENDLY. Not here.
Almost forgot to mention I wore my TK St. Patrick's Day T-shirt. Did anyone here acknowledge it? No.
Hopefully this is an isolated location but TK Corporate really needs to pay this place a visit and straighten out the local management. The Clearwater location is doing a very poor job at representing the brand.
The second stop on my "Breastraunt Tour" and by far the best. Out of all the mammary themed bars in town the tilted kilt has by Â far the best waitresses, food, and beer list (O'boobagan's does win on beer prices though, and funniest name). I don't normally oggle, but i had a case of the shifty eyes while hangin round there, judge me, i don't care. As for food the star for me was just the simple garlic fries. I couldn't give it 5 stars though, I'll reserve those for real restaurants.Review Source:
I guess you could look at this place two ways.
The food was really not impressive. And I thought over priced. Maybe some think the Celtic termed American fare is cute. However, there are so many authentic Irish & British pubs in the area I don't recommend this place.
On the flip-side, if what you are looking for is a loud sports bar with hotties in short skirts, then I would give this place *****. The waitress was great, very friendly and my glass was always full.
Overall three stars: one star as a restaurant and five stars as a sports bar. So go here for the hotties, but for food go to Cricketers or Flanagan's.
My wife and I pop by here occasionally, less often now that we don't live as close by. The food is dependable, while not especially memorable.
I'd recommend it if you truly want to focus on your dinner companion. Maintain eye contact at all times. It's a test of will power. You can do it if I can do it.
The food is not that great. I guess its mostly for guys with the skimpy clothed waitresses. Prices are OK. The only time I had a really good meal there was on St. Patty's day. Their corn beef and cabbage was awesome but that was the only great meal I've ever had there. Service is very slow also.Review Source:
What's not to love about this place? Â Great menu full of delicious food and drinks (and not just generic wings and burgers). Â The meatloaf sandwich was delicious. Â The Parmesan fries were great. Â Most of all the incredibly gorgeous girls are what seal it. Â It might be because this is located in a town that has beach weather most of the year but just about every server there was a 7+. Â
We went there on Thur and Fri last week when in town for a friend's wedding. Â Our server Thur was Tara who is in the running for the 2012 Tilted Kilt calendar. Â Lacey served us Friday. Â Cute little brunette.
It's obvious this place emphasizes "sex sells" more than Hooters. Â The girls wear a uniform that consists of midriff-baring tops, plaid pushup bras, plaid miniskirts, and white stockings. Â The servers even do the "flirt with the customer to get more tips" schtick. Â This was to be expected but I thought it was funny that they talk like this to every customer, even the family at the next table. Â Our server Lacey seemed like she was constantly in "work" mode and even called the father, mother, and their two kids "sweeheart" whenever she addressed them.
It's a sports bar so lots of TV's around playing different games. Â They had soccer, baseball, pool, ESPN, and their own TK channel playing when we were there.
All in all, I'd come back here next time I'm in town. Â The food and drinks are good enough to bring us back, the waitstaff is just the delicious icing on the cake!
Sad to say, but in four visits total, my rating has fallen lower and lower after an initial very positive impression. On that first visit my buddy got the waitress recommended Gaelic chicken dish, two breasts (ahem) in a heavy cream sauce, while I opted for the blackened chicken pasta. Mine was decent, not noteworthy. When I tried those chicken breasts on a third visit, I found the sauce too heavy. Worse, though I asked for it to be served over pasta, it came over mashed potatoes. 'Heavy on top of heavy' did not do my stomach well. The cookie dessert is tasty, but a bit pricey for what you get. Â The coffee had been chargrilling for several hours, so I switched to milk. I wasn't charged, but then our otherwise pleasant waitress offered Â no apology for that horrid cup of java. Â My fourth visit may well be my last. Â The Irish Stew tasted more of salt than anything else. There were some healthy pieces of meat, but elsewise the 'stew' was a pulverized mass of indistinguishable and identifiable ingredients. I upgraded from fries to a side salad, but was surprised that this cost $3, about the price of any side salad just off a menu. And a pedestrian salad it was at that, with a dressing that came straight out of a Kraft bottle. As a restaurant this is, in point of fact, very mediocre at best. The beer brat was the tastiest of all the meals I tried--order it all the way (peppers, onions, and sauerkraut; ask for the spicy mustard.
However, most people likely come for the scenery. Â The outfits are undeniably sexy, featuring pushup bras, bare midriffs, low waisted and notably short plaid skirts, Â and stockingless legs. Â That said, these women are YOUNG. As in, not far out of high school. Â If you are even a bit over 21, they are not likely to be so appealing. And Â IF they talk to you beyond the necessities of ordering, your illusions will be shattered. More and more the girls seem to be on strike against flirting (hey, I thought that came with the price of admission). Â None of the waitresses came anywhere near to the ease and skill with which the first one had my buddy and I wrapped around her finger. Even then I thought she was too good to be true, and apparently, she was.
For the sports fan, there are two large screens, several smaller ones, and the spirit of a sports pub permiates. I wouldn't recommend this place for families or for dates. Â And unfortunately, just like Hooters and Wing House, this chain fails to deliver on its promises....
Two field ops were sent in to establish political relations. Â We were welcomed immediately by a cheerful hostess, who sat us at a table with menus. Â The place was almost empty.
This is when our political talks, and soon all political options fell apart.
After flirting for 10 minutes with the men at the table next to us, a waitress was forced to walk by us on her way to the hostess stand. Â When she did walk by, it was in silence. Â We had time to study the menus well enough to reproduce them for intel purposes.
The sounds in the room included a quiet buzz of TVs over the bar, slightly outweighed by the giggles and chatter of two waitresses hanging out with the hostess at the front door. Â
After about 10 minutes of communications silence from the establishment, we headed for the door, where the hostess gave a very cheerful but puzzled 'Goodnight!' then she looked at her 2 friends and started to ask them who dropped the ball.
We had to laugh.
Recommendation: The only option the government has with regard to this place is to send in an MGM-52 Lance missile. Â Wikipedia says we have lots just sitting around, much like the wait staff here at the Tilted Kilt.

First time eating here (by the way, ouldn't check in using the mobile app - kept telling me I had to be there to check in while I was sitting at a table).
This is a SPORTS BAR. Â If you are looking for an abundance of TVs, a decent draft selection and good food in a clean and fun place then the Tilted Kilt is for you!
I had the Irish Nachos and loved them. Â My husband had the wings and fries and they were very, very good. Â
We will go back.
Despite what one review stated this IS a great restaurant. Â Try the signature wings and the garlic fries and you'll never question that again. Â Yes the costumes..errrr....uniforms of the servers are very enjoyable to look at from a male perspective but I have plenty of female friends that love going here too. Â It's reasonably priced and the staff is very friendly. Â I highly suggest it as an alternative to the other wing places in the area.Review Source:
When Hooters says they are family friendly, they mean in comparison to the Tilted Kilt. Ok, this place has great beer and a great bar, but it's not where I would go to eat.....it's a drinking establishment and the servers are in half tops and mini-kilts. A great idea for the male reviewers on here, a great alternative to Hooter's and some local bars, but a great restaurant? give me a break.Review Source:
A nice place to hang out and have a drink with friends. Â They have 24 beers on tap, and good happy hour deals. Â The theme is a Scottish Hooters. Â Bartenders wear kilts, and waitresses wear very little. Â Not really a great place to take a girl on the first date.
The food is much better since they changed the menu. Â More variety and more flavorful that previously.
This is a place that we go to to kick back and relax, not for a meal.
Their French Connection Burger is awesome! The Garlic fries are great by themselves or you can have them with your entree. I have tried a few things here and have liked all of them. Their wings aren't quite as good as Wing House or Hooters, but they are not bad.
All but one time that I have been there the service was good. For some reason the server when we went to watch the NCAA Men's Basket Ball championship was pretty much ignoring us. We sat in a corner by the bar and saw lots of food going by. Our pint glasses sat unfilled for a while before being refilled. Every other time I have been my next beer was brought as soon as i was sipping the last bit from my glass.
They never give me any guff about changing a TV so I can see the game I want. This is important because I am a Redskins/Nationals/Penguins fan. They change the channel promptly. Most of the time they don't have to because there are enough TVs and the place is well laid out so you can see from most anywhere you sit (especially in the main dining room)
The servers are more scantily clad than Hooters or Wing House. Imagine (not too vividly now) Hooters girls wearing short plaid "kilts" and showing some midriff.
Only downside is the cover charge for UFC events. The last time i checked it was $5. Maybe we'll give it a try. IT would be nice if $5 kept us from having to wait for an hour to get a seat at one of these events.
