Good Comfort Food

Whitlows has always had good comfort food to go with the college bar / drinking atmosphere. Their outdoor patio is nice and they are dog friendly.

Not a authentic tiki bar. It is more of a college bar with tiki décor. They do have a nice rooftop bar, but I don't feel like they use it to their potential. My husband asked for a mai tai (came out HOT PINK) and let's just say they don't make good old fashion tiki drinks. Fun for a night... More

WOW is a nice place-not to be unfair, but it is just a bar. Nothing out of the ordinary, but not a place you will feel is taking advantage of you either. We had a crab cake slider appetizer (pretty good-four little crab-cakes in a mustardy sauce...no bun though, which we thought was a little odd, but the bread would've... More

This is a great local neighborhood haunt. The rooftop bar is great fun and usually quite crowded with folks enjoying the great outdoors.

The half priced burgers on Monday are always a draw to Whitlow's. I ordered the cheeseburger with pepper jack cheese. The meal was excellent and the outdoor seating on the sidewalk was great with good weather. I would definitely recommend the Monday burgers.

Was greatly pleased with the food, especially the omelette station, crab legs and salmon. Everything looked great and prepared well seasoned. Neighboring tables were friendly as they knew it was our first time. I did notice that the place looked a little dated, so some improvements could be done. However, thats not enough to deter me. Sometimes, the "greasy spoon"... More

We love Whitlows and the history. We like the menu options. But the service seems to be in a perpetual decline. We visit every couple months. Most recent visit no different than the last few. We were a large party. Ordered three Nachos for the table - black beans all veggies and sour cream and guac - we got that.... More

From the outside this looks like just another bar however the food lets you know it's sooo much more. The Mac and Cheese was without a doubt the top 5 I have ever had in my life ( Sorry grandma). The prices are good and they have specials everyday. The server also told us about an app that gets you... More

Stumbled onto Whitlow's while apartment hunting for my daughter in Arlington. Amidst all the chains in Clarendon, this is a great spot. Relaxing environment, good service and excellent food.
