Lots of cars in the lot for Sunday lunch — a good sign. Food was great. Service friendly and efficient. Only disappointment was that they did not have any authentic Scottish food. You will enjoy your meal.

Visited Tartan's twice during our stay in North Carolina. One breakfast and one lunch. Excellent service (thanks Adam), great food, and personal attention was tops! Food was VERY good and our stay there was well worth it !!

We dine here every day we are in the area. Always a good value along with great quality and always an emphasis on cleanliness. Can't go wrong with the breakfast, sandwiches, salad bar or the daily special.

My friend and I were trying to find a place to eat as we drove from Linville Fall to Blowing Rock. There weren't many places we saw and cell reception is pretty much non-existent. We saw a sign for this place and took a chance....More

I live in the area, and decided to eat here for lunch, before doing my grocery shopping. Mind you I have worked in many tourist areas in Orlando. I can’t believe they charge a 3% addition if you use a Credit Card or Debit Card....More
