Ye Olde Alpha is truly a place where the locals go for great food and good times. It is not exactly on the beaten path (more like a couple of blocks from it), but you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't try it. We were steered here by a clerk at our motel many years ago, and we have... More

We ate there one afternoon and my wife had the shrimp & steak fajita which was big enough for both of us and I had the Duck burger which had an absolutely fabulous taste. i will definitely go back for the duck burger as well as to try several other items.

Visited Ye Olde Alpha while attending a family reunion in Wheeling!!! If you are looking to find a restaurant with the old Wheeling charm, this is it! The service was awesome! The bruschetta and shanks were to die for! Prices were very reasonable. I will definitely visit Ye Olde Alpha again!

These wings are a step above your usual wings. The fare doesn't stop there. Greek foods are offered, I recommend the grape leaves.

Ye Old Alpha is a favorite for wings and drinks on Tuesday's. Great atmosphere, delicious food. And everything is reasonably priced!! Memories of the Alpha are full of friends, laughter and great times.

This restaurant came highly recommended. I can say the service was outstanding. Atmosphere was casual My husband loved the ribs which they are well known for and he loved them, wasn't crazy about my selection, but shame on me would definitely give it another go. My husband was well pleased. The only downer was not knowing how to get in,... More

We had the veggie fajitas, and they were delicious! The chips and salsa also good. I recommend the grilled portabella appetizer.

Old time bar with animals on the walls and an extensive menu. Had the ribeye which was flavorful and juicy. Mexican mondays were tempting too.

I will admit, seeing the huge menu as well as the optional Mexican menu (which we chose to order from) scared me. How could one place make so many items fresh and good at the same time. We chose two odd Mexican items: Chicken, Portobella Mushroom and Spinach Quesadilla; Crab Enchiladas with a Chipotle Cream Sauce. The Quesadilla was burnt... More
