This unique restaurant located in the Centre Market shopping area is a must visit. They have a unique menu of crêpes, sandwiches, salads and deserts. Legal beverages are available but my favorite is their excellent coffee. Highly recommended!

Both meals were outstanding that my wife & I had! Our waitress recommended two entrees & we went with what she suggested. They were the Mac & rib sandwich and the black & white wrap. Wow!! Both were really good! They came with kettle chips which were also really good! You didn't dare let any of it go to waste!!... More

We were recommended to try this place from the WV Visitors information road stop. Great selection! In our party of 8 everyone LOVED his/her sandwich and/or crepe! Very creative but down to earth menu and location. The staff was outstanding. Outdoor seating available out front or in a cozy, shaded outdoor court yard area in the back. We will return... More

Had a great dinner here. The menu has unique selections (they specialize in crepes). Be adventurous and try one of their specialty drinks of the day, had the Earl Grey Martini, it sounds strange,but it was delicious. Also take the time to look at some neat Wheeling made products that are hanging on the walls.

Good food, but the owner is rude and favors her regular customers. A group of us went for lunch at 1:00. We were told she could not serve us as her regular lunch crowd would suffer!

First time visiting Later Alligator. The server was friendly and helpful. Had a great main dish crepe and the dessert crepe was phenomenal. We will definitely go there again and will recommend to our friends!

Really good food and friendly staff- so happy we found this in the middle of Wheeling. Definitely recommend, even if you're just passing through.

Great service, very good food. It's a small place, but big on character. Make sure you walk through the place and check out all the Wheeling memorabilia. I'd definitely eat there again.
