This was a great find in Wheeling. I travel and entertain for business a lot so I've become very picky about food. We had a hard time choosing from the numerous salad and sandwich options. Everything looked great on the menu and on diner's plates. The food was fresh, quality ingredients with thoughtful preparation. We both had spinach salads -... More

My wife and I had an opportunity to visit the Later Alligator for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed outstanding crepes offered in a large variety of choices. We appreciated the guidance of our server Lauren who took time to suggest and explain the offerings. While they had a large selection of sandwiches and wraps, the restaurant is especially noted for their... More

Quaint little restaurant-lots of Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel memorabilia and the Crepes are very, very good. There is even a nice outdoor patio in the back for Spring, Summer & Fall !!

We traveled to Wheeling WV to Oglebay to see Festival of Lights. Decided to explore town the first night. Came upon several restaurants and decided upon this particular one. Very good decision. The place was quaint and cozy. The menu was vast. Mostly specialized sandwiches. I had a chicken wrap that was so amazingly good. The waitress was very friendly.... More

This place has such promise. Charming atmosphere. Intimate seating. Decent waitstaff. Alas, the food quality is poor. A restaurant can have any number of negatives that can be overlooked if food is good. The converse is not true at all. They sell "crepes" that barely resemble any real crepes I've had anywhere else. Mine was served with a bland little... More

weather permitting, suggest the outdoor patio out back. This casual place has very friendly team serving interesting and yummy .....soups, sandwiches, salads, sweets.....and, if you're interested, drinks too. I loved my salmon wrap; the tomato-basil soup; the spinach salad with fresh fruit.....not enough room for the crepes but they sure look great. The manager is sooo friendly too.....

Hi folks. Give Later Gator a try! The place is crazy busy and consequently slow during lunch (be sure to budget at least 1, if not 1.5 hours,), but I will give credit where credit is due and say that everyone is super polite and friendly. The food is unique -- I love trying new things and Later Gator doesn't... More

The restaurant is in a very old building, and it has a lot of charm. When I was there, our table was at the rear, which is past the kitchen area. We could see the "action" in the kitchen. I would call the restaurant "trendy." I was there for lunch and found many sandwiches that seemed attractive. However, I was... More
