Great fish sandwich.

Very different from what we expected but really nice. Queued to place order like in a chippy then sat outside when order was ready. Extremely busy but only waited minutes. All had the famous fish sandwich and really nice quality fish on bread bun. Definitely a must if you get to visit downtown... read more

The filthiest men's restroom I have been in that belongs to a restaurant. Absolutely disgusting. The restaurant in general was not clean either. You self seat after ordering at the counter (McDonald's) style. You self serve your beverage and condiments but need to pay 10 cents for each packet of tarter sauce. The clam chowder was good and the fish... More

Glad we read reviews and found out how it worked ... The signs do not make it clear how it works but there are supposed to be 2 lines ... the longest line only served paddock sandwiches. We had read the Canadian whitefish was very good so that's what we tried. It had 3 pieces of fish and was very... More

We stopped here before before going to the bull riding at Wesbanco Arena on Friday, March 20th 2015. We came there because it was highly rated on tripadvisor. The restaurant is a fish market on one side and food counter with 2 lines on the other. One line is for their fish sandwhich, that they make tons of (must be... More

Best Canadian white fish in the valley. It is very busy so sometimes it is helpful to call ahead (especially during lent). I also recommend the New England clam chowder which is the best I have ever had except for when I was in Boston. This place is a true hidden gem!

For just under $5, you can get a sandwich with three large pieces of Canadian whitefish that is deep fried to perfection. For over a century, Coleman's has been satisfying Wheeling residents and their visitors with a wonderful experience. When my out of town visitors arrive, the first place they always mention to visit is Coleman's. Try it. You'll see... More

Worth the long wait on a Friday during Lent. Their fish sandwich is, by far, the best in Mountaineer Country!

We were excited to try it since the reviews were so good but to summarize our experience: Ambiance was great. Price was certainly reasonable. Food quality was very poor. There were 4 of us and we tried many items including broiled fish, fried fish, crab cakes and fried shrimp. The broiled fish was bland with little seasoning and dry. The... More
