Longtime fans of the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery in Myrtle Beach were upset to learn the national chain had closed its doors at Broadway at the Beach. The good news is that they won't have to travel very far to find the new and improved location on the Grand Strand.

Located just across from Broadway at the Beach on 21st Avenue North, a roughly one-mile, straight shot from The Breakers Resort, the Tilted Kilt’s new, 7,500-square-foot, stand-alone location beside The Mellow Mushroom serves as an upgrade from its smaller former venue within the Broadway complex. The change of scenery has provided more room to roam in the popular sports bar/restaurant.

Ideal for groups of golfers on a guys’ night out or a night out with friends for fun and games, the Tilted Kilt offers an entertaining venue in a pub-and-grub setting. Serving a wide selection of hot food and cold beer, the Tilted Kilt also features an array of flat-screen TVs lining virtually every wall for excellent sports viewing, and the long list of bar games includes billiards, darts, video games and sports-related challenges such as a golf swing simulator and Pop-a-Shot.

But the real appeal is the food and drink, as well as the people who serve them. Scantily-clad and flirtatious waitresses in tartan kilts take service to the next level, often joining tables for friendly conversation or to put on a hula-hoop performance. The casual atmosphere allows patrons to relax and mingle while playing games and feasting on Scottish-themed dishes and a wide selection of beers and mixed drinks. More than 40 draft beers are available on tap, as well as countless microbrews, domestics and imports in bottles and pints.

Irish and Scottish fare includes the Danny Boy’s Shepherd’s Pie, the Gaelic Chicken and Chef Flannery’s Steak, but many of the items are good, old-fashioned American pub fare. Chicken wings are one of the most popular appetizers, which also include nachos, potato skins and garlic cheese fries. The sandwiches are meal-sized and hearty, such as the Irish (French) Dip, the Scottish (Philly) Cheese Steak and the 10-ounce “Big Arse” Burgers that come with fries, onion straws or salads.

In addition to serving as a nice spot for lunch, dinner or drinks, the Tilted Kilt is also a popular gathering spot for watching major sporting events, such as NFL and college football games, NBA, NHL and MLB contests, and UCF fights. More than 50 televisions scattered throughout the dining area and bar provide patrons plenty of perfect vantage points, and the large, cheering crowds offer perhaps the best atmosphere without having to travel and purchase tickets to see the games live. It all adds up to the perfect place to visit during your Myrtle Beach vacation.

The Tilted Kilt is one of many new restaurants to open in the Broadway at the Beach area over the past year, with even more set to launch this spring. Hard Rock Cafe and Broadway Louie’s have relocated within the Celebrity Square complex, offering fresh changes for longtime visitors. Dave & Buster’s is perhaps the most anticipated arrival, bringing its brand of national sports bars to the old Hard Rock Cafe pyramid location. American Tap House serves more than 100 types of beer, as well as handcrafted food dishes, and Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen promises to be a Southern-fried treat when it opens for business this spring. Wahlburgers recently opened at Broadway to give guests the chance to try the national chain seen on the hit TV show featuring the talented Wahlberg brothers.

Whether it’s the Tilted Kilt or another one of the new restaurants, Broadway at the Beach is the ultimate place for guests at The Breakers to eat, drink and be merry.
