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.

Good basic food, burgers and sandwiches. Get anything more complicated and you're tempting fate. Service is erratic, sometimes prompt, sometimes poor. Outside sidewalk seating is nice. They regularly have kids meal specials and the place is filled with mothers with multiple kids. I've found those days to be so loud and disruptive that I've just turned around and left. Similarly,...

In the mood for a burger? I should have gone to Shake Shack. Dry. Flavorless. Such a shame. Luckily, it was Monday, so it was half price. I only ate half though.....

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