Unfortunately, Uncle Pete's Restaurant has closed due to their rental agreement with the owner of the property. I hear they are looking for a new location.

Parking is rough and hard to find but once you do it was great food and service. Had a family come in that comes once a month and filled us in on some history.

Great local spot with good food, service and people. The patio is a good spot in the summer to have lunch or dinner.

Two couples dined at Uncle Pete's after the governor held a town meeting. We arrived around 8:30 and were welcomed even though the dinner crowd for the most part had departed. Good beer selection - wine not so much. Our orders included 1/2 rack of...More

Very crowded during the week at lunch time, so maybe consider going before or after the rush. Despite the crowd there seem to be adequate space and it didn't take long to be seated. Food was delicious and price comparable to other restaurants of the...More

Stopped in for dinner on a recent trip. Looks like it used to be an old house that has been converted. The bar area overlooks the river and when warm an awesome deck is available. Had the ribs which were very good and tasty. They...More

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.
