Wow! First of all our waitress was wonderful. Told us about the history in the building. My wife and i both had different kinds of soup. Both were very good. We also both enjoyed our sandwiches as well. Very tasty. Very well done later alligator. We will be back again and again. Keep up the great work!

Went here for lunch. Wait to get a table and for server to come take our orders seemed excessive. Menu has a lot of unique sandwich choices. Flavor was good, but serving sizes were a little small. Decor is unique in that there is a lot of interesting Wheeling memorabilia. The overall dining experience was just so-so. The food was... More

Interesting décor, interesting menu, price is not cheap or jacked. I llike the Deja Vu - flatbread with pesto, tomato, cheese and a Grolsch beer (especially on Tuesday afternoon - half price beer). Tuesdays are visiting chef night right now and a reservation is required. Go to their website and call'em if in doubt about hours or anything else.

This is one of my go to places when I am craving something different and less ordinary. I love the menu choices. The tomato basil soup is one of my favorites. The building has a neat atmosphere and history. Crepes are super for dessert and so many great combinations.

My husband and I visited for the first and the last time tonight. We were seated right next to the register so we were able to hear whom I assumed to be the manager talking badly about a certain employee putting the dollars in the wrong compartments in the drawer and she also told ever other waitress there to keep...
