Servers bedecked in plaid livery pile plates with savory pub fare in Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery's expansive Celtic-themed dining arena. To kick off their party, crews of up to 15 eaters pick a slew of appetizers from the menu. Diners can dive through seasoned ground beef, cheese sauce, and tomatoes to reach the Irish nachos’ crunchy-chip core ($6.99), then challenge a seatmate to an edible duel with battered mozzarella sticks ($6.99) and catapult-hurled daubs of spinach-artichoke dip ($6.99). The Five Quid Squid bribes palates with golden rings of fried calamari ($8.99), and the roasted-garlic fries attempt to persuade with the eloquent aromas of garlic butter and parmesan cheese ($3.99).

Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery
Conceived by Las Vegas restaurateur Mark DiMartino, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery evokes Ireland by way of Vegas, with waitresses dressed in plaid mini kilts shouldering trays of chilled beer and pub fare. Like an enchilada stuffed with four-leaf clovers, the eatery’s irish nachos interpret a south-of-the-border classic in a Celtic way, slathering potato chips in cheese sauce and seasoned ground beef. Alternatively, pot roast and vegetables simmer traditionally in the Olde Dublin irish stew’s Guinness-infused beef stock. Barkeeps pour a full bar’s worth of wine, cocktails, and beer, which surfaces in bottles, bombers, and multi-brew mixes such as the Blue Moon-and-Guinness combination. 56 high-definition TVs—including three jumbo TVs and four screens on the outdoor patio—glow with a ceaseless parade of professional and college baseball, basketball, and hockey, and live bands add to the entertainment smorgasbord on Friday and Saturday nights.
