I have never been to a Tilted Kilt before, but a co-worker said that I would enjoy it. Has anyone been to them before? I saw a POI on here for them, however it is outdated by more than a year. I created a POI for this on my own, and would like to take this over as well. I contacted the current maintainer, however I did not receive a response from them.
Miss poi will take care of it...
This POI is already on the site, just not being maintained. I assume that the form is for new POIs, not updates to existing ones?

Funny thing about assumptions !!!
It seems that you have researched the old one and found it to be out of date and an orphan.
If you include that information with your submission, Ms. POI will indeed take care of it.......one way or another.
Having recently visited one of these fine establishments for the first time, you may have finally created a POI list that I would use. I had "assumed" that it was a one-of-a-kind.
My wife will not be with me next time though !!
but I see there is one opening soon in Pittsburgh. I guess my brother will be visiting so he has a place he can wear his kilt other than the once a year party.
good luck with the POI.

I just submitted the file, however I forgot to include the fact that it is obsolete on the site! Hopefully I'll get the hang of that. Still new at updating POIs.
Which one did you visit? I'm heading to the one in Hoboken after Easter, will be my first visit. I've heard good things so far
good luck with the POI.
Looks like your brother will be wearing his kilt again!

Quick response! Gotta love this site.
Would love to try one of these
Which one did you visit?
I've heard good things so far
Stumbled upon it quite by accident.
Food was good.
"Scenery" was good too.
Tell your bro to leave his kilt at home; that would kind of spoil the effect.
I work about a block away from the Kilt in Tempe. My coworkers and I go there often. It's got great...um...food.
That's good to hear. When I looked at the original POI, it had about 30 locations. Since then they have almost doubled, so they must be doing ok
Mayve I don't get out enough but what is a Tilted Kilt?
According to my Funk & Webster's: a canopy for a wagon, boat, or stall
Or, something that's higher on one side than the other.
I've never been to a Hooters or a Tilted Kilt but from the TK web site, I have this feeling that TKs are something like "Celtic-themed Hooters," at least as far as uniforms go:
Anyone been to both to help us two lost souls who don't get out much?
it's Hooters with a bit more taste, well maybe a little!
Well, all I know is that it is a restaurant that I supposedly will enjoy (heard from a co-worker). I honestly don't know what it is like.
Well, I haven't been to a Tilted Kilt, but about 120+ different Hooters!
I have an icon created, but I can't quite figure out how to upload it. Any ideas?
Just do a google image search for "tilted kilt" and you will immediately see what they are about!!
I just figured a Scotsman woke up drunk and didn't put his kilt on properly....
I think the Charlotte Tilted Kilt had just opened early last year and my sister said we'd have to try it when I visited. The food was good and they had my favorite Guinness on tap (yeah, I know it's Irish stout, but glad they had it at a Scottish-themed place). And in case you did not know the waitress "uniform" was closer to what you'd find at Hooters than in Brave Heart!
Thanks for the link. I looked around, but didn't find it previously. It has now been bookmarked
Well, it's always desirable to stay on the good side of this week's Contributor of the Week!
Anybody been to the one in Clearwater and if so how was it?
Those kilts aren't just tilted - they're barely hanging on! There aren't any franchises anywhere near where I live (northern California). I'd never even heard of the place until I saw this thread and looked online.
Where's shrifty at? This poi where "The kilts are barely hanging on" and he has also updated "Hooters".
umm I wonder? LOL (kidding...of course)
But so true. I was at the Hooters in Wyomissing PA today for lunch, not sure where I'm going for dinner in Philly...
Also, you forgot to mention the Twin Peaks POI...
I just submitted the icons, thanks for the link!
Who thinks of these? You don't see women doing this.
But they are developing quite nicely
Currently building a location in Kansas.
Opening a new location in Phoenix. The location in Lafayette LA has been removed from the site, can anyone confirm if this location is still open?
Tilted Kilt responded to my question, this location has been closed.
Tonight I decided to skip dinner completely for the benefit of the community and drove over to Hoboken NJ to see the progress of the Tilted Kilt location. It's not that I was trying to get dinner or anything.... DOH!
Well, I still have not been to a Tilted Kilt, maybe some other time
FYI, this location is not open.
Added Myrtle Beach SC location, if anyone knows the specific coordinates please let me know. I'm close, but not exact.
I have been to the one in Scottsdale, AZ and would highly recommend it....... Excellent food at a very reasonable price and the atmosphere is excellent and the help is not to bad either............LOL
That's good to know, I'm hoping to make it to one this weekend in Pittsburgh. Tried to go to the one in Hoboken, didn't turn out like I planned.
My first Tilted Kilt experience wasn't very good: I like the costumes (actually I love them) but the food was mediocre. I wish they knew how to cook wings like Hooters, juicy and tender. Instead, they're kinda dry! And the fries aren't that good either.
and had about the same reception! I find places of that ilk about the same, food was sometimes tasty but mediocre, kind of boring, as many of these "joints" are, i.e. Hooters, Applebees, BJ's, Bennigan's...the list goes on, and on, and on. I can forego cutesy little "perky breasted blond bimbettes" for an above average meal, served properly, with the correct flatware (always no spoons) not wrapped in a napkin.
Excluding Hooter's and TK, as I don't take women to these places, the waitperson approaches the table, and the first utterance, noticing males and females present, Hi! My name is _______ "How you GUYS doing? "Can I get you GUYS anything to drink?"
The waitstaff at many "fast food type" restaurants are ill trained and have long become mere "food transporters. These are usually college students trying to make money to support their education. While I have no problem with that, they lack proper training, expecting large tips at the completion of the meal for minimum service rendered. They pick up the completed "plated" dishes from the kitchen, with little concern that what they lay in front of you is what you actually ordered. They seldom double check to be sure the damned plate is WARM...which is seldom the case. Hot food turns cold in just a few short minutes. Since many people I have observed, seldom carry on little to no conversation after their food has been served them, grab their forks, and start shoveling in! If one actually wishes to carry on a conversation while eating, they usually wind up at the last with cold food.
I realize that I am probably in the minority, but I either cook at home (a hobby) or go to the restaurants where I am satisfied with both the quality of both food and service.

Actually you are not in a minority, but many have just come to expect lousy service. What many people don't realize is that a "tip" is not mandatory. In fact, I was taught TIP is actually an acronym for "To Insure Promptness." That's something you usually lack in a lot of places. In fact, just yesterday, Mother's Day, we each sent our plates back. The initial order delivery included one wrong dish, the others were not hot. When the correct dish was brought out, it too was cold so all 3 plates went back. The second delivery didn't go much better, parts of the meal were hot, parts were only lukewarm. In addition, the vegetable on one plate wasn't cooked properly in that it hadn't been cooked but just warmed.
The waiter did get a tip, but not the expected amount as the problem was primarily due to the wait staff. And yes, the manager was informed. OBTW, this was not a "casual fast food" type establishment, but a "white table cloth" restaurant. The problem isn't localized, it's rapidly becoming very universal at all but the very best places.
If you go to a Scottish themed restaurant, shouldn't you get some food with mutton, or maybe something boiled?
Actually you are not in a minority, but many have just come to expect lousy service.
your waiter should not have served you your dinner if it was not what you ordered! The manager should have comp'd your diner, and the waiter tipped as if you had the meal you ordered.
I take it, that you won't be going back there real soon?
Waiters often aren't the ones to bring the food to the table, they have both waiters and servers. Our meals were brought by a server and the server was questioned when the dish was presented as being different than the order. The server just told my daughter to try it and if it was wrong they would get the correct dish.
And no, we won't be going back to that restaurant in the foreseeable future.
I've been to a number of restaurants lately where I have no idea who is waiting on me, as I've seen 2 or 3 different people approach the table. They never seem to return a second time, just make a one time visit. Then the food is brought over by some other random person.
So, which one gets the tip? The first, second, or third? Or do they split?
I finally made it to a Tilted Kilt that was open for business (Hoboken is being built at this point, FYI). The food was decent, service was pretty good. I had a burger and fries.
Not sure when or where my second visit will be.
Added Schaumburg phone number.
Myrtle Beach SC is now open.
I need to update the coordinates for this location, it is a bit off. They have a nice s etup here, fairly packed at the moment. Hope the food is decent
