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

It stinks, there is a bad odor! The food is too spicy for me! It has no atmosphere or out door sitting!

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

With a new menu and what seems like new cooks the Alpha is once again a great eatery!The sandwiches are excellent and very creative! Cheese sticks are still great! Staff is great! The only thing is the wait can go between 30 to 45 minutes or more at night so better to get there early.

Traveling home to east central PA, we stopped for the night in Wheeling. The man at the desk in our hotel suggested Ye Old Alpha. He told us to expect a wait, but it is worth it. He was so right. Two great entrees at a decent price, then oh what a dessert. Give it a try.

Odd place to review. The food was really good ... Hubby raved over the crab cakes, and I had a delicious shrimp salad. Service was good and prices were reasonable. The decor, however, left a lot to be desired! The whole place looked like something ripe for one of those "makeover" shows. Entry area where we waited for maybe 10... More
