Wheeling Edition: Generations Restaurant & Pub

GenerationsGenerations Restaurant & Pub, located in Wheeling, is your typical all-American casual bar & grill food. It made its way onto the WV's 101 Most Unique Places to Dine list. 

GenerationsDon't try going around to the front of the building that faces the road - nope, those are the banquet halls. Instead, go around the side and there you'll find the entrance. On this day, I was early so there weren't many people having lunch yet. The interior is pretty spacious with bar seating, high-tops and tables all around the space.

GenerationsThey have a few decent beers on draft, and I went with a Great Lakes Brewing Company Christmas Ale. The menu gas wings, pizzas, salads and a bevy of fried appetizers, as well as sandwiches, wraps, burgers and plated entrees on the other side. I knew I had a day of munching ahead of me, so I opted for just a bite.

GenerationsI ordered the buffalo pierogies, which are pierogies tossed in any of their wing sauces. Sounds a bit odd, right? Well, not if it's parmesan garlic, right? Mmm.

GenerationsI asked for a side of marinara because I just felt like they needed something. Overall, these were just OK. The fried, greasy taste just kind of took over. I've had some pierogies that have had a super flavorful filling, while these just kinda fell flat. Bad? No. Great? Nah.
