    We always stop during our Memorial Day trip! Love eating in the basement! Wings are plenty and the waffle fries seasoned to perfection

    This was an experience I was not expecting. A friend who lives nearby brought me here as he had been telling me about their chicken wings for months. It was everything he hyped it up to be. And I got the soft pretzel and it was so good as well. Everything overall was great and I think eating in that dark basement made the experience even better. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. I will definitely return.

    One of my favorite places to go when I go back home to Wheeling. Wings are the best along with the atmosphere prefer a basement seat. Every visit is a new memory of wings, beer with friends & family... See ya there next time in town.

    On a scale of romances to documentaries, Drover's Inn is a bodice-ripper romance. Tucked away off of Washington Pike, it's easy to miss, but it's definitely something to turnaround for. Parking is plentiful, and our group was seated quickly. While our local friends encouraged us to order the wings, I deviated for the baby back ribs, and I honestly should have stuck with the wings! The baby back ribs were dry and only saved by the sauce. Drover's Inn is so charming, and I hope to return to try the wings!

    We love this place. Sitting in the tavern downstairs the staff is amazing. The garlic parm boneless wings are delicious. I suggest the Bavarian pretzels and beer cheese. Even better dip the boneless wings in the beer cheese. Always 5 stars in our eyes!
