Relaxed atmosphere. Grilled steak salad is delicious. Can get a little noisy. Check for the specials.

Not a fan of Buffet style anything but this brunch changed my attitude. First off it is skewed more toward southern fare (Collard Greens, Macaroni & Cheese, Ham, etc.) What sticks out is the Crab Legs. Piping hot and meaty and plentiful. If they run out do not worry, more on the way! My best friend is more adventurous than... More

Fun for Thursday Nights if you live in the Arlington area and are a recent grad or someone in their mid-twenties. Nothing crazy or special, just a straightforward bar that serves OK burgers and regular beer.

Casual dining with great food and atmosphere. I eat at Whitlows every time i come to the area on business. I have never had a bad meal. Service is fast and the staff friendly. Live the hamburger and sandwich specials! Highly recommend!!!!

Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner we have been pleased when we eat here. Excellent selection of beers and drinks if you'd like. Wonderfully delicious everything we have tried. Eggs, sandwiches(which are on special mid day) and dinners and desserts are GREAT! Its not fancy, its a larger bar restaurant with excellent music and very attentive friendly staff. We will be back!

WOW was a go to place for many years. It still remains a Father's Day tradition. However, the noise level is awful, the interior too dark and the food and service mostly just average.

Whitlow's isn't a great place to grab a bite to eat with 80's music & a comfortable atmosphere. The Brussel sprouts & bacon were awesome! The Bloody Mary was decent & the buffalo chicken salad was pretty good. Our waitress was awesome & attentive! Over all, a pretty cool place to visit while in town.

This place is a gem. Great atmosphere and awesome food. Good music playing loud enough to hear it but not annoying while eating. The staff was very nice and stayed attentive. The crab Mac & Cheese and the bacon fused brussel sprouts were out of this world. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
