Downtown near the Fish market. Very small place, loved the decorations. It was hoy that day, vet warm inside so we requested to sit outside. Patio furniture, loved the ivy scaled buildings and it was relaxing with a breeze. I believe their specialty was crepes. Well ,they make scrumptious crepes, every bite was like a party in your mouth. Variety... More

We ordered the chicken curry wrap and the hummus wrap. Both were delicious! We were able to order black beans and rice for our toddler (it wasn't on the menu.) Our waitress was very accommodating. We were driving though on our way to PA and stopped for lunch.

My family had one day in Wheeling. We came for the Ogle Bay Good Zoo and then spent the remainder on the day exploring. I stumbled upon Later Alligator in a Wheeling Visitors Guide and looked no further! As a vegetarian traveling with my meat eating family, this place hit the mark. So many fabulous choices for all of us... More

Food was good but service extremely slow and the beer that we ordered wasn't cold. We think our waitress got tired of going up And down the steps to wait on us.

The atmosphere and menu were 'hip'. The service and food were sub par. Here's my story.. Scenario: Arrived for Lunch and mimosas on out back patio on a Friday this June. We were two-33yr old mamas, 12yr, 7yr, 3yr, 11mo in a stroller. Hosts led me and my stroller to steep wooden steps to patio-it was awkward because there was... More

If you are ever traveling through Wheeling, definitely stop by Later Alligator. It is near the North Market and local businesses, parking is a little rough but worth it. It has something on the menu for everyone and the prices are very reasonable. The portions are a bit small, but our meals filled us both up. Hubby and I had... More

Although the food is quite unique and delicious and was again. The service was horrible. It took 10 minutes to get seated and I counted 6 indoor tables and 2 outdoor tables vacant. It then took another 40 minutes to get our order. While this was going on, the owner was busy trimming vines away from windows to take pictures.... More
