Tilted Kilt To Open Wilmington Location In Late Spring

By J. Elias O'Neal, posted Jan 28, 2014
A well-known national restaurant will soon locate in former restaurant space near Walmart on Market Street.

Arizona-based Tilted Kilt is in the process of upfitting the former Marlin and Rays restaurant at 11 Van Campen Blvd., on Market Street near the College Road overpass, company spokeswoman Stacy Rubenstein said Tuesday.

She said officials are targeting a late spring opening date for the new Wilmington eatery.

It will be the third restaurant to occupy the former Marlin and Rays location. Prior to Marlin and Rays, the site played host to a Ruby Tuesday.   

Tilted Kilt is part of the so-called "breastaurant" niche, a fast-growing segment of the restaurant industry that features scantily clad waitresses. The chain offers a variety of traditional American, Irish, Scottish and English cuisines. The eatery also carries a wide variety of domestic and imported beers on tap, including most Budweiser products, Heineken and Samuel Adams lagers.

Founded in 2003, Tilted Kilt operates more than 70 restaurants nationwide, including several in North Carolina – two in Charlotte and one in Raleigh.
