This is a bit of heaven in a restored building in a preserved neighborhood. They offer a variety of savory and sweet crepes, along with great sandwiched. I have NEVER been disappointed!

Later Alligator has great food and a menu that is unique for the Wheeling area. Casual and friendly atmosphere. In the summer you can dine on the back patio.

My husband and I stopped at this wonderful little place and we're thrilled with the food the atmosphere but most of all our server, Lauren. She knew all about the menu, shared her favorites with us, and encouraged to wander and enjoy the wonderful and unique decorations,especially the women's restroom. Really cute. I promise if you go to this resturant,... More

A nice variety of different menu options but not much for a hardy appetite. Difficult area for parking.

Great atmosphere and food. Very casual place. Very good sandwiches with great names like fowl play, pulp fishin and club car. I had the club car. The hint of pesto was amazing. For dessert I had a crepe and it was amazing! I definitely would recommend this place.

Good food and good service on a consistent basis. Excellent for Wheeling, still good if it was in a larger town.

It had been a little while since we were here, and we see that the menu has expanded a great deal. We will definitely be going back more often as it was tough to decide what to get. The food is awesome and our waitress was very sweet and helpful.

Picked the restaurant due to the name of it. The server was very nice and patient (4 old ladies who couldn't decide). The food we ordered was very good and just the right size for lunch. We did ask about the name and the server..gave us the story behind it.
