For Sunday brunch, this is it!

I don't come here often, but when I do, it's ALWAYS very good! The brunch buffet at $24 is a steal! So much to choose from: breakfast, salads, meats, seafood, dessert. Crab legs are a $6 add-on. Mimosa setup (full bottle of Prosecco and a carafe of orange juice) for $14. A separate waffle menu... read more

Whitlow's was the Monday choice as the famous half price Monday burgers hit the spot. They offer happy hour specials in addition to the half price burgers on Monday. Wednesday is half price sandwich night, so you've got a couple of nights for bargain options at Whitlow's.

This is a really good bar in the middle of hot spot Clarendon. Virginia. The exceptionally good looking clientele is always actively looking for equally attractive members of the opposite sex. Lots of excitemeny here.

I have been coming here off and on since the late 1980s. The clientele range from your bar hoppers on Friday nights, to families, and neighborhood couples - old and young. Service is always excellent. The food is fresh, turkeys cooked every day, they cut their own vegetables, etc. Last might we went for the half-price hamburgers. We agreed that... More

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
