Had a great breakfast here on 10/22. We had a late breakfast so missed the morning rush but the lunch crowd was showing up as we were leaving. We didn't have to wait for a table and the food was good made fresh to order.

I always order breakfast when here at the Tartan. They serve lunch but they also serve breakfast until closing at 2pm. It has always been good and hot and the staff here are super nice. Very relaxed atmosphere.

Good food, consistently. Friendly service. Menu is a bit limited, but certa8nly enough. We laugh about the eggs. They are cooked as the cook wants to make them... regardless of how you order them. But, we still go back each trip to Linville.

Was told about this hideaway. Service a little slower for some but we were not on any time constraint. The cheeseburger was good, the Cameron sandwich was good but onion rings need to be crisper.
