This place is fantastic, and each visit seems to be better than the first. If you have never been here, you don't know what you're missing; it is well worth the effort to track down this unique restaurant just off the old National Road. From a very nice free appetizer of chips and dip to a menu which has something to offer for everyone, Ye Old Alpha is Wheeling's answer to what a great restaurant should be -- good food, great staff and a fun place to enjoy friends and family. Have been coming here for almost 15 years and never had anything other than a wonderful time.

Ye Olde Alpha is a short drive from the Wilson Lodge at Oglebay, but well worth it. We sat on the bar side of the restaurant upon the advice of a local. The atmosphere added to our enjoyment ... everyone was enjoying themselves, but their enjoyment was subdued so conversation in normal tones was possible. The chicken wings were outstanding!

I started going to the Alpha in 1979. I enjoy it today as much as I did then. It changed hands a few years ago and did something I didn't think it would-- it got better. It's fun, great food with a big selection. Service is great. Do yourself a favor. Go. Enjoy!

Starting with the name. Ye Olde Alpha. Then the menu. What a variety of food. Greek, Mexican, anything you want really. Salads, steaks, chicken, anything. It is old timey with deer heads on the walls. Our waitress was very energetic and helped us with our orders. We couldn't decide what to eat with such a varied menu but the waitress chose some good meals for us.

Positive: Low prices.
Good fare, some dishes inconsistent.
Staffing seems to be an issue on certain nights.
