Business Spotlight: Tartan Restaurant satisfies all appetites with homemade cuisine

Jamie Shell / (

For 33 years, Sharon 'Shad' Peters and her staff have been cooking up success in downtown Linville at Tartan Restaurant.

A favorite of locals, seasonal residents and tourists alike, "the Tartan," as it is affectionately known, never fails to satisfy hungers large and small.

The Tartan serves breakfast and lunch each day, and is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Featuring daily lunch specials ranging from roast beef to chicken livers to flounder to homemade meatloaf, any diner is certain to find something to his or her liking at Tartan Restaurant.

According to Peters, the Tartan began due largely to the work of her father, who operated several restaurants and afforded she and her sister, Kay, the chance to run a restaurant during the summer season.
