Ye Olde Alpha in Wheeling recently reopened their doors after closing on Thursday to fix water line and grease trap issues as suggested by the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department.
Co-owner Mark Thomas said his business decided to close in order to prevent further problems from arising.
The support from the community was very much appreciated by the Alpha staff. Thomas said they received many phone calls, emails, tweets, and Facebook messages from Wheeling residents giving their utmost support and appreciation for the local restaurant.
For some Wheeling residents, the local establishment that has been in business since 1932, is much more than just a restaurant – it is a local landmark.
The Alpha is located on Carmel Road in the Woodsdale section of Wheeling.
