We were told that they offered Greek food....well, we had to look hard on the menu to find it...a salad with feta cheese and a Greek sauce on 5 shrimp...Server pulled up a chair and sat at our table while she gave us the specials. Very good pita and hummus appetizer and a good salsa...but not sure why they brought... More

Was referred by a local and have made a point of stopping by whenever my travels take me through Wheeling. Great service with personality, tasty food that is prepared very well and adult beverage offerings that will quench any thirst. Many favorite dishes however the ribs are my "go-to". Give it a try- you won’t be disappointed!

This is small unassuming out of the way place and very much worth finding. They have an incredibly diverse menu. We had a large group and some had fajitas which were huge, wings (try the greek), grilled chicken breast with portabello mushroom sauce, steak, pasta dishes etc...truly something for everyone and very good. Don't expect elegant dining atmosphere as this... More

The atmosphere is the reason to go to the Alpha. The food is good, and they can actually pour a good drink (a rarity in the area), but the atmosphere is great. It's a nice pub with a bustling dinner crew.

Off the beaten path... Pros: AMAZING DUCK BURGER AND PEANUT BUTTER PIE... Cons: somewhat dirty, very outdated, service is decent, cheese fries and wilted lettuce not so good... But i would recommend if in the area as a local joint to try out.

We ate here passing through town, and they had a good variety of food. Good service, food was about 50/50 on what we ordered some good some just ok. The place needs a serious renovation.
