A - Sort of a fancy sandwich shop. Nice booths. Open and well lit. Clean. A entertaining dog motif. Good for a couple or a famliy with kids. Has take out and a small bottle shop in the front.

Q - Be careful on bottled dates for the hoppy beers. Food is of a high quality.

S - The wait staff at the tables is excellent. Friendly, attentive and quick. The wait staff are not necessarily well schooled in the beer they serve, even in a cursory manner. BUT worse, the bar can be at the best, hit or miss. Sitting at the bar can be very frustrating. The bartender I have had a couple of times ignored me for 15 minutes (not even a menu). Thus my average score in this area.

S - A wide variety of beers on both tap and in the bottle. But nothing too rare or unusual. Did find a Bruery Tart of Darkness in the coolers out front once.

F - Not a fancy restaurant, but all the food from the pizza to the sandwiches are fantastic. A wide selection. Something for everyone. Meat eaters to vegans. Picky to not so much.

V - Great value on food. Beer is average value.

Of special note - Lost Dog has a big selection of bottles, but no bottle menu that I have ever seen. So if you are not sitting at the bar you are at a loss. Lost Dog would do itself well (and sell more of their higher priced beer) if they had a beer menu.

I went to the Lost Dog Café with family after a soccer match in NOVA on 2920 Columbia Pike in Arlington (not the North Arlington), but figured it should be about the same. Nice low key-laid back sandwich shop atmosphere. Huge bottle options and decent 20+ draft options. I opted for a 5oz pour of Boulevard's Rye on Rye (12%) because I had to drive home. I liked the different size options (5oz/14oz/22oz) offerings and pricing right on the menu. Nothing hidden and nothing you have to ask about. Very nice to see that for a craft beer establishment.

Food was decent and the menu was extensive and could please anyone. Again this isn't a fancy place nor anything quaint but a pizza/sandwich shop with a catering to the craft beer crowd.
