Tilted Kilt, a new pub and eatery that opened Dec. 1 in Novi's Fountain Walk, is the first of its franchise to open in Michigan.
The restaurant features 30 draft beers on tap including local beers like Short's Soft Parade, Fat Tire and Magic Hat #9.
"It's a great sports viewing atmosphere, great service. Our slogan is: Cold Beer Never Looked So Good," said General Manager Brian Meussner.
The female servers, who wear plaid kilts, are a big part of the Tilted Kilt experience and are featured in their own calendar.
Sports watching is another part of the experience as there are more than 50 televisions in the Tilted Kilt, so patrons can count on seeing their favorite games, Meussner said.
"Wings and burgers are always a big hit," he said about the most popular menu items. "Also our entrees like Irish stew, Shepherd's Pie, and fish and chips."
He said appetizers start around $7 and most of the burgers and entrees are $10 to $15.
"We do a good job of combining English, Irish and Scottish tradition with our own American twist. That’s why we’re tilted," Meussner said.
Tilted Kilt takes reservations for parties and is already getting booked for Superbowl Sunday, he said. Also, the pub does a spin on St. Patrick's Day on the 17th of every month, he said.
Meussner said there are plans to open more Tilted Kilts in the metro Detroit area, but nothing is ready for announcement.
Although Tilted Kilt is already open for business, the official ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening celebrations will be held on Feb. 8.
