“Typical bar grub”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

Typical bar food with attentive service. Decent food but nothing to write home about. It took a while for food to be served even though there were only a handful of tables at the time we were there.

“Go For The Lasses, Stay For The Grub”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 via mobile

Staff is as capable as they are lovely. Appys were not treated as afterthoughts. I had the Pastrami and it was g-double oh-d. Guinness was close to perfect. Put it on your list.

“Trust me, your kids will see more on TV than they will dining at the Twisted Kilt.”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

I have only been to the one located in Vernon Hills and to my surprise unlike Hooters it seems to be more family oriented and not so quick to cause the ladies visiting to feel uncomfortable.

The service is pretty good and the food and drinks are reasonable. I am a burger fan and the meat quality and grilled flavor is worth mentioning. However, the appetizers are a bit overpriced or expensive in my opinion.

The restaurant is very clean which is always a plus combined with giant flat screens with HD from every angle.

“Better than I thought it would be”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

This place is not for everyone but if you are looking for a sports bar theme with friendly young ladies as servers this is a good choice. We went as a couple and they did go out of their way to make my wife feel welcome. The Gaelic chicken gets high marks and the fish and chips were good quality, although the breading on the deep fried filets was a little too crunchy for me. The drunken clams appetizer was very good but I would pass on the cookie dessert - the cookie was not completely baked - and I think that was how it was intended.

A word must be said about the outfits - the kilts are short - but they don't show anymore than you can see in a mall nowadays. The midrif baring shirts and pushup bras are the provacative attire - yes it is like hooters with plaid instead of orange. The guys do wear kilts, so if the ladies want to come in for that aspect it is here too. The crowd was 85% guys - but there was a UFC fight scheduled for later so that tilted the crowd - if you will. But if you are offended by young ladies dressing in a sexy way to attract a crowd - this place may not be your cup of tea. But if you figure these ladies know what they are getting into, are being treated well by management and the customers, what's the big deal? Supermodels parade around in their underwear and make millions - the servers here very hospitable, are well trained on their product and I assume make nice tips.
Its a good place to go and tell your friends about - the ensuing conversation alone will make it worth the trip.
