I stopped in here for lunch while exploring the area and was happy I did. Being of Scottish heritage I felt compelled. Very cozy and love the decor. I had that day's lunch special, which was meatloaf and 2 sides, and all were satisfactory. Would certainly come back the next time I'm up that way.

We have been coming to this restaurant for the last 20 years. They have all-day breakfast. Best item is the homemade soup and fresh salad bar. They recently added potatoes and sweet potatoes to the bar. Friendly service. Very busy on Sunday's after church. Daily special offered.

We took our family of 7 for breakfast and the service and food was spot on! I ordered soft scrambled eggs and they were cooked perfectly. This restaurant is one of our favorites in the area.

We can't say much about the food here. We stopped for a very light snack close to lunch time (a little past). It is a very popular restaurant (the only restaurant near Grandfather Mountain that we know of). Many tables going the length of the restaurant toward the back. Nice people there though. We had sausage biscuits which were just... More

We stopped in for lunch and I saw that the special that day was chicken and dumplings. That is one of my favorites . We finally were seated and asked to order . I immediately order the chicken and dumplings . I was told they were already sold out . It was only 12 : 30 . Needless, to say... More

Serves breakfast all day. Fresh salad, potato and soup bar. Homemade desserts and chili with beans. I think it closes the doors at 2:00, but we were still there well past then and didn't feel rushed.

Recently my wife and her family had lunch at the Tartan. We have been here many times over the years. It basically serves comfort food. Prices are reasonable and service is average to a bit on the slow side. Handicap parking is an issue with only two spaces and they are standard size making it difficult for anyone with a... More

Glad we found this place. Good regular old restaurants are hard to find in this area. Ate at the Tartan 3 times, and everything was very good. They have an expansive menu.The soups were tasty and satisfying, and the sandwiches were equally as good. One issue, all three times our server vanished when we were ready for our check. All...

I stopped in for lunch here with a friend and had a great meal and good service. This is only my second time here but both were great. This is a local restaurant with lots of regulars but I had no problem with the food or service. I had a club sandwich and fries and it was very filling, and... More
