Really good food (had to take some home to have the next day) friendly prompt staff comfortable atmosphere and the money goes to local Dog related humane organizations to help local canines who have been abandoned or dropped. A few doors down is a partner restuarant that helps cats. And no I'm not making that up.

Had the opportunity to eat here this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The menu is huge and every combination looked appetizing. Very moderately priced, as well. Between the pizza and sub/sandwiches, you could eat here 50 times and still not try everything. They have some pretty cool artwork on the walls telling the story of the area. If you... More

If you think you might enjoy a picnic lunch on the deck of an aircraft carrier, first check out lunch at the Lost Dog Cafe. The decibel level at the Lost Dog must be close to 100. Just put in a few tables of folks eating and talking, add in a howling baby or two (Arlington mothers love this place,... More

Huge menu, tons of sandwiches and pizzas. Gluten free pizza if you so desire. Waffle fries. AMAZING beer selection. Root beer. Fantastic milkshakes. All VERY yummy. Clean. Casual dining. Fun artwork on the walls inspired by the local history. Huge supporters of helping homeless animals. Not cheap eats, but definitely a great value for the money.

Our first time there. Great place to go with kids. Great atmosphere. Loved the murals. My daughter had a custom individual pizza. She loved it. I had a dinner salad with tuna. The tuna was a bit over cooked for my liking, but then I like it raw. When the weather is nice we'll come and sit outside where you... More

I have been here multiple times over the past few years and have yet to be even slightly disappointed. Their signature sandwiches are amazing, be sure to get the Cowboy - roast beef, roasted peppers and onions with melted brie cheese on top. They also have a great beer selection with plenty to choose from to drink either in the... More

What's better than pizza, subs and beer? Beats me! But every time my family and I visit the original Lost Dog in the Westover section of Arlington, we usually have all three and they never disappoint. There are unique offerings in all three categories, so there is something for everyone, from the tried and true to the more exotic. I... More
