Description: We were directed to Uncle Pete's Restaurant by our hotel’s staff. The several block walk in the rain brought us to a easily-missed restaurant, as it is on the north end of Wheeling’s business district. We arrived around 8 PM to find only a few patrons, all of whom were eating and drinnking at the lounge’s bar. We eschewed eating alone in the restaurant’s dining room to sit at a table in the lounge, which overlooked the river, if daylight would afford the view. We were initially concerned by the service provided by a young lady who was doing a good imitation of drug-induced distraction. The food stood in comparison: Cajun Shrimp was delicious; the Half Rack of Ribs was as good as any I have eaten and the “half rack” was more than sufficient. An excellent meal.

I went here with my husband, for a breakfast date, it was really nice and we got to sit on the back deck with a very lovely view of the river. If you get breakfast here, the hot sausage and white bread (they make the white bread themselves) is a must.

Great little spot. Very difficult to locate.
Lots of on/off ramps and a very strange one way street.
Good selection of bottled beers.
The best fried zucchini in the USA.
Good portions, great staff.
Ask for a patio table.

This little gem off of the highway is worth the extra step. I had the Tuscan Shrimp Pasta and it was delicious! The riverfront dining deck created the perfect atmosphere for our date night.

This place was crazy the night we were there and had to wait. However, we didn't wait long. We found out that a show was playing at the Capitol Theatre and lots of people were out. Anyway, we waited about 15 minutes and by the time we were seated, the whole place had cleaned out. Staff worked very hard and we were treated great. The food was very, very, very good. I had the Chicken Marsala and my friend had the stuffed white fish with various sides. It was all yummy!! Will definitely go back there as soon as possible.

Great local favorites of the Ohio Valley. Come hungry the portions are huge. Sit in the back overlooking the Ohio River and Wheeling Island for the full effect. Avery cool place!
