Out of town visitor, stopped in for lunch based on a recommendation by a local. The place is a feast for the eyes - cool decor, brick walls, wood floors, tin tile ceiling. The menu has lots of choices, each assigned a cute name. They are known for their crepes but I had a sandwich (BBQ w/onions and mac and... More

I am a local and have been to this restaurant several times. I think that it is an eclectic little gem in downtown Wheeling that I really enjoy. They offer a wide selection on Crepes, sandwiches, and salads. I have tried several. They all have clever little names like "Crepes of wrath" and "American in Paris". Sandwiches are also good,...

The food was fresh and seemed healthier than your average sit down. I really enjoyed looking at the memorabilia on the walls. The location is pretty great too. We love eating near the Ohio River and then walking around afterward.

I ate with my Mom and friend.It was neat inside-the food was expensive for the amount given-we left hungry. I went again with a friend and we were turned away from seating by the owner who seemed quite tart and not so friendly.

Food is a little pricy for what you get, One time you get a nice sandwich and the next hardly anything on it and the same with deserts. What isn't right is the owner speaks to her favorites and doesn't try to talk to the other people. But the sandwiches and the soup are good but got to look for... More

My husband and were in Wheeling a couple of years ago and we were looking for a good local place to eat. We stumbled upon Later Alligator and decided to give it a shot. The food and the atmosphere were excellent! The banana fo-fana crepe was one of the best crepes i've ever had! We are planning a trip back... More

This small local restaurant near the market house in Wheeling is bursting at the seams at lunch time (a very good indicator of a great eatery!) We visited with family including adults and children on a recent mild November day. After about a 30 minute wait, a few tables became available which they pulled together to accommodate seven of us.... More

The setting is calm,relax,cool,fresh,green. Creeps,salads,awesome sandwich combos! Took us 10 min. To decide what we wanted because it was so different. Not huge potions but enough. The sides were rather pricy & the sandwich came with only blue tortilla chips...not impressed. Would be better is sides came with. But,I'd go back. Good food,clean place. My husband is a big guy...

This place is a must stop if you are in Wheeling. They have been know for crepes, but if not you thing the sandwiches are really good. The shrimp sandwich is something you will crave if you try it once. They also have a delicious French dip on great bread. My latest meal there was a crepe with ham, bacon,... More
