We stopped here before my son's hockey game at Wesbanco Arena. It's very conveniently located near the arena. I ordered the pretzel sticks as an appetizer and they were good. For my dinner I ordered crab cakes and they were just ok. Too much breading for my liking and no sauce which made them very dry. The rice that came with them was good. My boyfriend had the steak fajitas and he said they were somewhat bland. They have a wide variety of beer and the service was really great.

There are not a ton of pubs in town so I felt lucky to locate this one. The entrance is on the corner which was a little confusing but the locals outside told me that it happens all the time. I went late for drinks. The crowd was young/middle aged and there was a large wedding party there the night I visited. Live music was good, just a little too loud. Drinks were cheap, bartenders were very nice. This place has a 3:30am liquor license but can close whenever they think is best. I will return if I stay in the area again.

The restaurant has a very good beer selection which included several micro brewery beers as well as the national brands. The food was good but not great. The menu seemed pretty good overall. The restaurant itself is in a building that seems to have converted from some past industrial use. It was very nice inside. Service was good and friendly. I'd categorize this place like an Applebee's with better beer.

In from out of town for the hockey game at Wesbanco Arena. Met friends here for a pregame dinner. There was 6 of us.

It was easy to park at the arena and walk over just a block. So, very convenient location if you are going to the arena.

Service was prompt and the food was ok, nothing bad and nothing great. Only complaint would be the inability to get any drink refills and they really did not appear to be all that busy.

Had my team's jersey on and was welcomed to Wheeling by so many nice people that came up to our table and talked to us as we were walking to the arena.

Would go back to this restaurant and definitely to Wheeling!
