About Us

The Wooden Angel has been serving Beaver County and the Greater Pittsburgh area since 1968. Our attention to detail and outstanding service has never waivered.

Since 1982 the Wooden Angel has been recognized by the Wine Spectator Magazine as one of the greatest wine lists in the world, Best of the Award of Excellence, only 8 in PA... only one in Western PA... US! We're especially proud because we've received these honors with an all-American wine list - the only all U.S.A. wine list to receive that kind of recognition.

Our award-winning wine list is extensive, yet affordable, with over 400 labels with vintages going all the way back to 1973. We go out of our way to make it easy for you to experiment with vineyards and wines. Ask Alex or your server for a wine recommendation at any time! Look to the Wooden Angel for a dining experience that you will never forget.

The Wooden Angel has been family owned since 1968 and Alex has been its masterful captain since the very beginning. Over the years Alex has honed his wine skills and is now a nationally recognized wine educator and judge. The Wine Cellar at the Wooden Angel has received numerous awards and Alex is often hailed for his all-American wine selection. Alex currently serves on the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board's Wine Advisory Committee.
