Was staying at a hotel close by and someone in our group suggest we could grab a beer and watch the game around the corner. Walking into this restaurant I could not believe it was 2016 The theme is Scottish I.e "Tilted Kilt". The wait staff are all attractive young women in very tiny kilts with small tops for their...

I stopped by for a quick dinner while in town. I like their wings so I got some of those as my meal. The wings were good as usual, but the service is a little slow. My waitress was ok, but the couple at the table next to me seemed a little frustrated as it seemed like their waitress was... More

Went for the really spicy burger and was not disappointed. Washed down by a couple of 5 buck beers. A little Scottish theme with the waitresses dressed in white shirts and tartan mini kilts

We called in as we had seen the chain but never been to one. We met by the hostess who said it was self seating at the bar. After being sat there for almost 10 minutes (in a quite bar) no one had looked to serve us, probably not helped being a couple and not a a group of guys,... More

Nothing fancy- just watching sports is a great venue. Food is good- service is ok. Great place to go ifvu are in the loop. Don't let the street construction stop you from coming to the kilt!

A business colleague and native of the area took us here. I was not extremely impressed but not disappointed either. I had the WICKED BOSTON BURGER which has maple pepper bacon, American cheese, Samuel Adams Boston Lager, caramelized onion relish, burger sauce, lettuce &tomato. Pretty good burger. It is somewhat like a Hooters. I am not a beer guy but... More

Our group had a lot of fun at the Tilted Kilt. Our server was beyond polite and attentive. Our drinks we're always full and appetizers always on the table. It was a hot day in Chicago so this was an excellent find to get us off the blazing streets.

Easy to think this place is tacky and it kind of is but it's also fun and my food was great. I had sports on tv all around, decent food, great service from a beautiful waitress. I'd be lying if I were to tell you I didn't enjoy.

Love this place!! Yes, the clientele is mainly male, but the waitresses are absolutely great!! Of course, the only reason they're dressed the way they are, is to attract men to come visit the bar over and over again. But they're also very kind. And attentive! We went there twice (stayed only 2 nights in Chicago) and had both times... More

Service was pretty good but the food was just average. The establishment caters primarily to men as the servers are attired in kilts and tied off shirts. I had fish and chips, but it was not memorable, only OK.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
