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.

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

Average neighborhood bar in a great location. I can't write home about the food, service, or drinks, but they do a decent job with entertainment, and due to location it is always busy.

Great place if you're looking for a lively bar scene. The rooftop has a tiki-bar feel. It's a lot of fun.

A classic diner-type experience, Whitlow's is THE place to eat breakfast in Arlington. Brisk, friendly, efficient waitresses who bring you coffee in thick white cups and keep them refilled, fresh squeezed orange juice, biscuits and eggs perfectly cooked. I had the classic benedict, and it could not have been better.

Came in for dinner last night with friends and although it was crowded we had THE best server, Andrew. Everything was perfect. Guac and chips, artichoke dip, fish tacos,and the best Cobb salad I've ever had. Seriousy, the food here is delicious. Andrew paced us with perfection, helpful but never intrusive. Let us converse. Refilled drinks with speed. We'll come... More

Past visits have not impressed me as much as this trip. Tried the cheeseburger with pepper jack cheese and it was excellent and hit the spot.

Went with my company during Happy Hour. Excellent assortment of appetizers. Very quick service. Pretty crowded and good ambiance. Parking is hard around that area, but doable. Can't speak to the pricing as I was not paying. Young professional crowd.
