Went to Screwtop on a Tuesday to meet with a girlfriend for happy hour. The place is small compared to most places but a good size for Arlington. Other times that we had attempted to come to Screwtop it was extremely packed, so the fact that we were able to get a table was a plus. I ordered the cider... More

This is an enjoyable establishment with friendly service. They have a good selection of wines by the glass and very reasonable prices. Also good appetizers, cheese selection, and charcuterie.

The Mary's quiche was amazing and paired well with the peach sangria. The staff was so awesome and always suggesting great wines. They also have a shop inside with snacks and craft beers. Parking is your worst enemy unless you are patient or do the Indoor lot. I prefer bar seating more than the tables. The wine club is worth... More

Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich can't be beat. We were a party of 6, were seated quickly and service was great! Personal attention was wonderful...all of us had great wine and excellent food.

There were four of us and we all ordered food except they forgot to order one meal. The wine chenin blanc on the happy hour list was average at best. All the wines are realitively unknown. I had a greek salad that had a good flavor but the chicken was overcooked and dry. the portions were good sized

We went here twice this trip and I had the Truffle Mac & Cheese and The Whole Enchilada, both were delicious. It's a great place to go, even if you're not hungry, to just relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

I met a date here for drinks. We both had a $10 mason jar (glass) of a cabinet. It was so bitter my date winced. The service was great though.

Great staff / very good explanations / upbeat and clean decor. Really a very decent restaurant. We split a huge Cuban sandwich which was superb. The homemade tomato bisque soup was savory but s but too salty. Sun glare was a problem for all six tables. I'd consider some glare mitigation there. Hard to talk at a table but there... More

We are now members of the wine and cheese club. So worth it! The food menu is pretty fresh and they get busy every day. You can park in the indoor lot across the street but it's cramped! !!! Be prepared to wait for a table if you come at night time. Bar seating is also available but it can... More
