I have been going to the Alpha since college. The bar side is cozy and friendly. I love the local draft selections from brew keepers. They sell the coldest draft yuengling I have ever tasted. The restaurant side is great for families and you can call ahead reservations. The menu is awesome. I don't even have a favorite thing to... More

The ambiance on the bar side was very much like a neighborhood bar. On the restaurants side, the ambiance was nothing remarkable: Midwest Family Restaurant. The staff was friendly and responsive. My waitress saw me do a double take on my drink and offered to make it her way...to good effect. Chips and salsa were excellent...in fact the salsa was... More

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
