My family went to this restaurant for lunch and luckily, we were seated right away. The waitress was very patient and attentive. The servings were generous. As an appetizer, we had the bruschetta which was a meal in itself. I then had the Beef Pastrami while the others ordered the Crabby Patty and the Portobello Mushroom Salad. I also had... More

this was a happily unexpected treat ! There was a long wait to get seated at this small restaurant that did not appear to be much from the outside, or the inside. However, the food did not disappoint in the least.. the sweet potato fries were amazing, as was the sauce that came with them!

If you are rolling through Wheeling Virginia, East/West or North/South, this establishment is an excellent recommendation. You would need to get off I-70 on the old National Road (US 40) and judiciously jog two blocks north of National Road for an great experience If you arrive at around 7:30pm you will have a small wait on your hands. After 8pm... More

The service on the bar side is awful. The food is good just plan on being there forever. If they added another server the experience would've been much better.

Ye Olde Alpha has good, standard American fare but it is extraordinarily shabby - not shabby chic, just shabby - and even smells funky. It's an old landmark in Wheeling, and many people swear by it. The bar is in a separate room from the dining area, which keeps the dining room fairly quiet. The burgers are great, as is... More

Excellent food and good service. It's a Wheeling institution. It's a very nice place for a business lunch or a family dinner.

I've heard people say they love this place but I was not impressed. Food is just food, but with poor service. If you go for drinks in the evening it's just another college(ish) bar. I could care less if I ever go back here. They do have two uniformed officers at the bar in the evening which I am indifferent... More
