Great place for seafood

If you want great seafood and a casual atmosphere Wild Alaskan is the place for you. The lobster bisque is amazing. Especially when they pour it over a plate full of fries or the lobster roll! Not a cheap meal by any means but well worth it! Located in the middle of the Strip District it's a... read more

The food was average. Asked for medium-rare yellowfin tuna and it was medium to well done. The table ordered calamari that was also pretty standard. Service was pleasant but very slow for a Tuesday night.

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch at Luke Wholey's Grille starting with a Soft Shell Crab garnished Bloody Mary. Two of us had the lunch special of Crisp Calamari Caesar Salad and it was excellent. The other two ordered from the sushi menu and were very pleased with their dishes. The grille is a bustling crowded restaurant at lunch time and service... More

I have gone to Luke Wholey's three times now. In my opinion one need not go anywhere else for a fine , fresh meal. Even though busy one gets seated rather quickly. The staff is friendly and willing to assist in making your meal enjoyable. I must say after driving over 200 miles I was happy to return to this... More

If you're hungry for fresh seafood with a large selection of choices and a fun atmosphere, you'll love Luke Wholey's Grille. The server was very quick and attentive and the food was excellent. Portions are large and prices are very reasonable. We will definitely make this one of our favorite seafood places to eat.

Drove to location on trip advisor and was incorrect. Waste of time. Use 2106 Penn Ave to get to the correct address. Next time

The best way to describe our dining experience at Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille is “funky”. My daughter wanted to go somewhere fun downtown for her birthday, and we decided on Wholey’s (in large part due to our ability to secure a last minute reservation on a Saturday night). The reservation, it turned out, was useless, as we arrived at... More

My mother and I have been waiting for warmer weather to sit outside and try their soft shell crab Bloody Mary. She tried the crab and I got the shrimp. Although may not be my favorite in the city, the Bloody Mary's were very good. We weren't very hungry so we ordered the crab cake appetizer and lobster bisque. The... More

We had a very good dinner I had swordfish that was cooked perfect. My husband had oysters which the great and son had calamari. Our waiter Brian was very knowledgeable about the all menu especially the Oysters taste and where they were from. Thanks we had a great evening!
