We happened to find this great restaurant purely by chance while visiting Wheeling this week. Everything from the name, to the décor and menu are unique and interesting. Our waitress was extremely helpful giving us needed information due to my food sensitivities. She was attentive and ensured we were satisfied in every way - my husband's coffee mug was never... More

We were passing through this evening and wanted a non franchise. This place fit the bill. The food was wonderful. There were three of us who each had something different - the Wallie, (a crepe with walnuts, chicken, spinach, ricotta, cheddar, tomatoes and raspberry sauce; chicken salad on croissant; and a roast beef dip sandwich. There was too much food... More

Stopped by for a late afternoon cup of lobster bisque and a peach ice tea - perfection!! Love the menu, decor, food, everything - only reason it is not 5 stars is that the gal looked at me incredulously when I ordered and said "Is that all?". Maybe she was having a bad day? Loads of old items from Wheeling... More

From the impeccable service to the delectable menu to the unique atmosphere, dining here was a delightful experience. Our server Lauren was extremely friendly and insanely helpful in picking out vegan options for us. The wraps are a must have and even the coffee is delicious. The restaurant itself had a very local feel with a lot of items and... More

Our group of 4 were on a car trip to Washington DC and found this restaurant for a lunch stop thru Trip Advisor. We couldn't have chosen better. The setting is in a vintage building and we had excellent food along with excellent service. We all would highly recommend this as a stopping place!

Creative is the name of the game at Later 'Gator. Décor highlights the restaurant's Wheeling manufacturing location in this intimate, friendly place. Owner and chef are no strangers to the front of the house. Their hospitality adds to this winning dining experience. Fresh takes on everything from homemade soups, entrée salads, and dozens of crepe combinations. Great value for great... More

It's a 5 minute detour off I-70 down Main & Market Streets to this wonderfully unique, and eclectic, small restaurant. An outsider would never know it ever existed if they hadn't heard about it beforehand and looked it up. This is one of those places that you make the extra effort to go to for the experience that you won't... More

I was more than pleased with the menu selections, not the same old stuff! I got a cajun chicken crepe that burst with flavor! The atmosphere is old Wheeling oriented! Staff is great!!

Used trip advisor to find this cafe. Enjoyed their menu, it was light, health conscious and well planned. Looking for a greezy burger joint, this is NOT the place. Nothing so spectacular it merits 5 stars; but a return visit is certain, if I travel near
