Wheeling Edition: The Market Vines Wine Bar & Grille

Market Vines

And on this episode of me eating my way through Wheeling, I visited The Market Vines Wine Bar & Grille. This restaurant is located in the Centre Market area of town, which is one of my absolute favorite areas with all the little shops, boutiques and restaurants.

Market VinesMarket Vines is actually fairly small, with a bar and few high-tops at the entrance, and a few lower tables toward the back. It's mostly one open space with basic features and furnishings. Less of a wine bar, more of a simple restaurant that also serves wine.

Market VinesThe menu has a few options: deep-fried appetizers (pickles, cheese balls, zucchini, onion petals, breaded ravioli, etc.), chicken wings, salads, wraps, burgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches (including Coleman's Fish!).

Market VinesSo, I ordered the bacon cheeseburger:

Bacon Cheeseburger $8.99
Burger with your choice of cheese, apple-wood smoked bacon, lettuce and tomato.

Market VinesOur server said it was one of the most popular items, so I figured 'why not?' I got a side of sweet potato fries. And a side of pinot grigio. And, I think it was pretty decent. The burger was juicy - but a bit too greasy - and the nicely grilled Texas toast was a lovely touch. The fries were fine. 

Nothing too inventive or different, but a decent basic meal in a sort of neighborhood pub-style establishment. The wine wasn't my favorite - it seemed slightly metallic or as though it had been opened for too long. But that's just me.

Market VinesOverall, a nice little stop for lunch, but there are certainly many other great places nearby that I'll be sure to get my hands on.
