Came here for my first time and paid $24 for a lame brunch buffet. Was not what I expected for the price. It's definitely a rip off so don't get the buffet.

We came here for a business lunch and the layout was good for frank discussion of a court case, political events and private business without worrying about being overheard. Neighboring tables were a safe distance away and there was sufficient activity to drown out our conversation beyond our table. The staff was very accommodating to the staggered arrival of members...

Large pub atmosphere that needs updating. Half priced sandwiches for lunch at the time we arrived. My pulled pork sandwhich - when I cut it on half the liquid fat flooded my plate. Husband had open faced meatloaf sandwhich and he enjoyed it.

I truly enjoyed the food and atmosphere but was taken aback by the greeters at the front. I clearly saw a lot of open tables and was told that there would be a 15 minute wait. Then they proceeded to place other people at those tables. We took a table top and enjoyed the good but I got the impression... More

The hostess was unwilling to seat us outside, claiming that it was a maximum of four, but luckily, the manager intervened and allowed us to pull up a chair to a table. Food was good and the service was adequate.

Very popular since it opened 10-12 years sgo. Great sandwiches. Casual atmosphere. Aimed at the young adult crowd, but also families. Can be pretty noisy in evenings. Reasonable prices, American food. Not gourmet, but a good neighborhood restaurant .

Most people don't get excited too excited for Mondays but with half price burgers at Whitlow's, my family looks forward to Mondays. The burgers are big, juicy and HALF PRICE. If you work nearby this is even better at lunchtime, much less crowded and easier to grab a seat outside.

There to check out local brunch, $24 for adult, but if all you eat is steamed crab, then they will empty your shell bucket as many times as you fill it. No sharing, no dogge bags, 20 % tip for groups of 6 or more. We had brunch from that menu, plus bloody marries, there is a bloody mary bar... More

Fun place to visit to hang out with friends after work for a happy hour. It is a place worth visiting on a hot summer day.
