Outstanding Brunch / Lunch in the Strip

I have never been to a restaurant before that had such an awesome display of food. Everything was fresh and tasty! I loved the way they served their king crab legs which were also the sweetest tasting crab legs I've ever eaten. I also loved that the owner made his presence and even cleared off our table for us. Excellent... More

We had "Happy Hour" appetizers (1/2 off) , the Catfish bites and the Fried Zucchini.. both were served plentiful to share at our table... I couldn't resist the Appeal of their Bloody Mary... More

Bloody Mary has large crisp stick of celery,slice of dill pickle,two olives and two shrimp in shell on picks in addition to lemon. I got mine spicy and friend ordered hers spiced up after tasting mine. I ordered salmon with soy sesame and double bok choy instead of bok choy and jasmine rice, Friends had their salmon on salads.

As the only person in a group of six that doesn't like seafood I was outvoted in a decision to come here. I don't expect seafood restaurants to have too many options for those who don't like it, but I do expect the alternatives to be halfway decent. Unfortunately, the chicken sandwich I received was the opposite of that. It... More

If you love seafood...and a fun bar experience...make sure you stop here! We stopped for a couple drinks...but ended up having a selection of raw oysters as well. The oysters were the best I have ever had! Freshly shucked...and on your plate! Service was excellent and the bar selection was very good. We watched all the food that went by... More

I love seafood, and have tried it every where from Ithaca to Washington State. I travel extensively for my job and am always looking for a special memory to make with my kids who all have a food obsession like mine. I really wasn't expecting much from Luke Wholey's due to the fact his Grand Dad started Wholey's Seafood. I... More

We had the lobster bisque and the shrimp cocktail both excellent! We also had the lobster and shrimp pizza, the shrimp Po boy with the Cajun aioli, the salmon with the wasabi glaze. I would absolutely return extremely good bloody Mary's but the draft beer selection was weak for someone who likes dark beers and lagers.

The lobster bisque was so good. Not to rich with large chunks of lobster meat. The sushi rolls were also really tasty as well as the Fanny May oysters on the half shell. Reasonably priced in the Strip District. The only strange thing is the restaurant is smoky. Not cigarettes just smoke. No smell either. Not sure why. Would go... More

So my wife and I stopped into this place again after some shopping in the Strip District. We love the place for its raw oysters and immediately ordered a dozen. as always they were fresh meaty and delicious. As we were both very hungry we decided to order entrees and split them. I ordered the Baja Shrimp Volcano which is... More
