This place has a great vibe to it, if nothing else. Nice restaurant, very clean and nicely decorated. I was disappointed to learn that the Ale Works no longer sells Mountaineer, as I had dropped in looking to try it. Selection is not that great - mostly macro with the exception of a few Great Lakes brews. The bartenders and other staff members were friendly and helpful, and the prices are great compared to what Iím used to.

(Visited 08/2007): Although this placeís sign reads River City Ale Works, I learned pretty quickly that they no longer brew their own beer. A shame, really. The bar/restaurant/banquet facility is located in downtown Wheeling on Main Street. There is nearby metered street parking and garages here and there. The building is 3 stories with lots of windows on the outside and sits on a corner. Inside it is very spacious and has a yellow brick and greenish metal motif. The bottom floor has a bar on the left side, including what looks like a small room that used to house the brewing equipment, which still displays a nice collection of old beer bottles and cans. The bar is opposite a group of pool tables and big screen TVs. Again, the beer selection here is pretty weak. As River City no longer brews their own beers, they have settled on 6 macros and 2 Mountaineer brews. Service here was fine on a weekday afternoon. The server knew enough about the 2 regional beers to be able to describe them. The food also came out quickly. Speaking of food, my beer battered fish sandwich and fries were above average. Overall it seems this place would have been a better visit a couple years ago (even if the beers they made werenít great), but as far as non-chain restaurants in Wheeling that serve regional beers on draught it will do.
