Our friend recommended that we go to Uncle Pete's while we were visiting Oglebay nearby. The ribs were fall off the bone delicious! I also had a very good cheeseburger. The restaurant is set right on the Ohio River and would probably be a cool place to go during the summer when you could sit on their large deck and... More

While staying with friends in the area we had lunch here. We had lunch on the deck and watched the Ohio River. The service was a tad slower then I am used to, however, she was very friendly. The guys had the chili and there was NO complaining from them. I had a grilled chicken Caesar Salad, their dressing is... More

Had lunch on the deck over looking the Ohio River. Great view! Food was very good as well. Great sandwich menu. Parking is a little tight behind the restaurant but manageable

We went to Uncle Pete's on the recommendation of a patron at another restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was great and the prices were very reasonable. Check the specials as they are very good.

We originally were going to a different restaurant but they couldn't seat the 13 of us (and 2of the patrons were really snobbish) but another couple recommended Uncle Petes. Thank goodness. It was a few minutes away. We told the lady who met us that we had 13 and she said no problem but asked if we could set at... More

Uncle Pete's has a variety of foods, lunch, dinner and appetizers. They are located along Main Street on the Ohio River with an outside eating area with a beautiful view of the Ohio. They treat you very well at Uncle Pete's and the prices are nice as well.

Sat on the deck and had the fried zucchini wings and an Italian hoagie. All were very very good. The fried zucchini stood out. The wings are smoked. Make them very unique. Deck is nice. Waitress was very good and craft beer selection is adequate. I will be back!

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.
