I stopped in briefly to grab a bite at the Tilted Kilt between client appointments and didn't have a lot of time to eat. The service was very good - pleasant, informative, and speedy. The waitress had recommended the BBQ Pulled Pork Mac & Cheese, so I went with that and was very glad that I did. It was a... More

A Tilted Kilt visit a while ago was not pleasant. About two weeks ago I was in the Rockford area and thought I would give them a second chance. Was VERY glad I Did! Even though the football games were on, my server found a TV for me to watch the Blackhawks game. Kelcey (I am guessing at the spelling)... More

Ok. We know it's standard fair. Expect the food to be what the food is. It's bar food. Had the wings and beer and deal with it. It's not bad. Not great but not bad. Service was good the two times I went this trip, once at the bar and once at a table to watch hockey and get some... More

We had seen this chain on "Undercover Boss" and wanted to try it. Food was good. I had Shepherds Pie and my wife had the Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese. Both were good. Mine was a little too salty and the veggies were sort of mashed up and the flavor was great. Usually it's covered with mashed potatoes and heated... More

Had to wait at Clock Tower for a ride and stopped in for a quick bite. The server was refreshingly nice and I had a spinach chicken salad that was very good. I don't usually stop at places geared mostly towards men because the servers don't like to wait on single women there, but Chelsea was so nice and I... More

Stopped in for a hamburger and a beer. The service is great. The food was good. I suspect the night I visited was an off night.

It's a basic bar scene with very young girls dressed in some scantily clad Scottish / Irish outfit. Met a friend here or probably never would have ever gone to one of these places. Our waitress was pretty good with being attentive and making sure our glasses were filled. Food was your basic bar type. Nothing extravagant. All eatable fare.... More

Stopped in on Wednesday night, we were early and the place was slow. Drinks were served quick and fine but that ended the good service. We all ordered wings as that was the special for the night. Also had French onion soup. The soup was the worst I have had, a few onions, loaded with salad croutons and some cheese...... More

Maybe I chose the wrong day but I think I simply chose the wrong eating place. It was dull and rather unpleasant. The food was almost OK but not quite. They were out of a few things we asked for from the menu. Waitress was delightful and the beer was really good. Maybe an OK place for a drink but... More

We came here with about 50 people as we were in town for a baseball tournament with 2 teams. We called ahead and they were more than welcoming and willing to take on our large group. When we arrived we were told their air conditioning was out. Our kids (and parents) had just been out in 97 degree weather all... More
