On a road trip and stopped in Wheeling. Read good reviews so decided to stop at Later Alligator for dinner on a Friday night. Wasn't particularly busy for a Friday evening but we seemed to wait an inordinate amount for what is basically a sandwich shop. I ordered the caprice sandwich - basically one piece of mozzarella with one half... More

The place is known for their crepes. These are lunch and dinner crepes. We were a little unsure but ordered them anyway and were pleasantly surprised. The drinks were pretty good as well. They have outside sitting but there isn't a view. The menu isn't extensive but enough variety that every should be able to find something.

The atmosphere and decorations alone make this creperie worth the trip. The crepes are great, the soups fresh, and the staff friendly. Always worth the trip, and a great reason why centre market is reviving.

Very reasonable prices. Meals are a good serving not too big and not too small. We had the ham salad and mushroom feta cheese. Good service.

We returned to Wheeling after 30 years for a reunion of friends and family. Later Alligator is the leader into a wonderful resurgence of downtown Wheeling. Food is delicious, waitstaff is caring and attentive, and the owner is delightfully approachable, entertaining and a bevy of knowledge. Can't wait to see you later!!

Nice menu, but don't expect any gater tails. My pulled pork sandwich was enjoyable. They have a large crepes menu and fancy salads

We were pleasantly surprised to find this adorable restaurant complete with tin ceiling, historical decorations and photographs and a friendly, helpful wait staff. The owner, Sue, is the creator of this magical menu and the funky surroundings. Everything from the coffee to the crepes is yummy, making me wish I lived in the area.

Quant and Inviting. Sandwich choices are a bit eclectic. Enjoyed the overall experience and will visit again next time I'm in Wheeling.

Off the Charts! We are staying at Oglebay and wanted to hit the downtown in Wheeling. Wheeling is trying to make a come back and they got some help from this really great little restaurant. Very cool atmosphere for casual dining. Decorated with Wheeling artifacts. But the menu and the food is so ridiculously good. I've lived outside of Philly... More
