The good: we were seated promptly by a friendly hostess. Open atmosphere. The bad: our server wasn't very warm; she gave us a tiny, xeroxed beer list, and said she needed it back immediately (which kept us from ordering more beer, as the service was slow); appetizers were very unimpressive (frozen zucchini sticks with marinara that tasted like ketchup); chili...

Wonderful space for a truly great restaurant. It's just terrible that through the years they still can't figure out the food side, which, as far as I'm concerned is the most important part of a restaurant to get right? I've been forced there, against my will, for business events, weddings, etc. and I have NEVER had even a satisfactory meal.... More

The food was average, but the friendliness of the staff and other patrons at the bar was a rare treat!

Stopped in River City Ale Works Sunday night to enjoy a local diner. I was the only one in the bar side and for a Sunday night there were very few other patrons. Ordered a filet, asparagus and sweet potatoe fries. The Filet came out a little more done then Med Rare, but not far beyond. Still very juicey with... More

What a great place to visit in Wheeling! Our wait staff was fantastic, prompt, friendly and the food was just wonderful. Worth a visit if you're visiting the Wheeling area! Plus, the gift shop upstairs is quite a gem!

I stopped in for happy hour and was pleasantly surprised. The beer prices were decent but the happy hour food was excellent. I got the cheese stuffed perogi's. It was supposedly an appetizer but was more like a small plate meal and it was excellent. To top it off the bartenders were friendly and efficient.

We ordered the Fajitas (steak, chicken) and Caribbean Chicken. Fajitas were delicious, Caribbean chicken was good but pineapple salsa was not as advertised, very little pineapple and mostly red peppers. Prices for all meals was a good value for the amount of food and the service we received, our waiter Scott did a very good job providing to our needs.... More
