St. Patty's Day is here, and to make sure you have the best holiday experience, we put together the local businesses you don't want to miss.

On March 17, hordes of green-clad people of Irish descent — as well as a good many wannabes — will celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Although originally the day denoted in the Catholic Church to remember the monk who Christianized the Irish people, today's celebration is more the product of American marketing than a somber religious feast day. Nationwide, pubs will be transformed by the serving of iconic Guinness stout, Irish dancing and singing, and the all-pervasive "wearing of the green."

If you're looking for a place near Wheeling homes for sale and Moundsville homes for sale to celebrate, look no further. Our real estate agents have some terrific recommendations.

  1. Generations Restaurant and Pub. 338 National Road, Wheeling. 
    Generations Restaurant and Pub has an impressive list of creatively named beers: Sunny Little Thing Wheat Beer, Dirtwolf IPA, Give a Crap Sour Fruited, and Sour Me Dark and Stormy Sour Fruited, just for starters. Then, there's Guinness Draft Stout in a can for St. Patrick's Day purists. For edibles, there's a wide selection of upscale pub fare: Try the Award-Winning Chili; Redskin Mashed Potato or Seasoned Broccoli; Tenderloin Tips; Pan-Seared Cod Loin; or Pizza, Pasta, and Wraps, Wings, and Pierogies.

  2. The West Sports Bar. 100 Kensington Drive, Wheeling.
    The West Sports Bar is a place for the entire family (yep, that means the kiddos, too). The bar and restaurant serve a full menu till closing time. With 25 plasma screen TVs, it's a great place for watching sports. As for the menu, there are some eclectic choices. Appetizers include Hummus, Grape Leaves, Chorizo Skillet, and Grilled Portabellas; there's also an extensive salad menu, from Lettuce Wedge to Greek Salad to Grilled Vegetable Salad, and everything in between. Also dine on Pasta, Sandwiches, Fajitas, and Tacos (try the Roasted Lamb Neck).

  3. Third Alarm Bar. 70 New Jersey St., Wheeling.
    The Third Alarm Bar is your basic bar-type bar. Enjoy a Lenten special of Coleman's Fish Sandwich, Fries, Onion Rings, and Cole Slaw plus Mac and Cheese and a Budweiser. How basic can you get? Plus, have a beer, on St. Paddy's Day or any day.

  4. Pickles Eatery and Bar. 419 Fulton St., Wheeling.
    Try these at Pickles Eatery and Bar on special occasions such as St. Patrick's Day or anytime: The Rachel, a turkey and sauerkraut or coleslaw sandwich or a Pickles Burger, served with two fried pickle spears; wings galore; and lots of appetizers, including Onion Straws. This eatery gets consistent rave reviews from fans for the quick service and tasty food.
  5. Alpha Tavern. 50 Carmel Road, Wheeling.
    Stop by the Alpha Tavern on Saturday, March 19, 2022, at 7 p.m. for a St. Patrick's Day Party. Opened in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, Alpha Tavern is located in an old theater that was built in 1913. From the menu: for salads, try Steak Salad or Strawberry Fields Forever; for a side, try Loaded Fries with Smoked Sausage and Pepperoni; for an appetizer, order Bowl of Fried Cheese Curds and Garlic Aioli Dipping Sauce. But for serious dining, try Broiled Center Cut Canadian Cod; Ribs, Salmon, Steaks, and Chops. There's also a substantial Kids' Menu.
