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

For a small neighborhood bar/grille type place the food was excellent and the waiter (Jim) was helpful and provided exceptional service. This place is a rare gem in Wheeling!

This place has been a standard for good, home-style food for many years! Bring a hearty appetite and enjoy. P.S. The french fries and gravy is a Valley staple!!!

From the time we set foot in the door until we lefttgis has to be one of the worst experiences I've had when it comes to wait staff and employees. The woman at the front desk totally ignored us when we walked in. No greeting. No hi welcome to blah blah blah. Not even an acknowledgement. She was too busy... More

This place is fantastic, and each visit seems to be better than the first. If you have never been here, you don't know what you're missing; it is well worth the effort to track down this unique restaurant just off the old National Road. From a very nice free appetizer of chips and dip to a menu which has something... More

Ye Olde Alpha is a short drive from the Wilson Lodge at Oglebay, but well worth it. We sat on the bar side of the restaurant upon the advice of a local. The atmosphere added to our enjoyment ... everyone was enjoying themselves, but their enjoyment was subdued so conversation in normal tones was possible. The chicken wings were outstanding!
