Stopped in for dinner based on recommendation from hotel staff and other locals. Menu has a little bit of this and a little bit of that, should cover about anyone's taste. They served chips and salsa while you waited for your meal. The salsa was very good. I ordered chicken, it was tasty. The restaurant is a little dated but... More

Stopped in for dinner one evening and really enjoyed. It was Monday Mexican night. Our table ordered a burrito which was flavorful and large. I had a chicken dish based on the waiters recommendation and really enjoyed. Good drink selections and atmosphere.

We stayed at Oglebay for a quick getaway and this place was a gem! ! We did not want to eat at Oglebay because the wait was entirely too long and we also wanted to experience a bit of Wheeling. Huge portions, great flavor, and great service. If you go, try to get into the lounge/bar area because the wait... More

While taking a holiday trip with family to the Wheeling area I recalled a coworker telling me about this location and how good the food had been. So with a little look to the tripadvisor App. and a couple bleeps on GPS we headed for the restaurant. First off the location is great located approximately 1.5 miles from the turnoff... More

Over the years we have had dinner at the Alpha. The food has always been good as well as the service. Many items are made in house vs other eateries that buy its pretty-cooked or pre-made.

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
