The Strip District in Pittsburgh is a great time mostly regardless of where you go, but Like Wholey's combines killer brews with awesome menu items for an all-around winner experience. We stopped in for drinks and appetizers. The calamari was among the best I've ever had... ever... and the ahi tuna appetizer was absolutely perfect. Great craft beer on tap.... More

We were actually met by the owner and chef when we walked in for a light lunch in the middle of a conference. The weather was great so the garage door walls were up, opening the place up to view the bustle of the Strip where people were out and about enjoying the weather and shopping. One of their specialties... More

Locals know Wholley's in the Strip is THE best market in town to buy fresh seafood. From the same family springs The Wild Alaskan Grille, with a broad menu of fresh fare, including varietal oysters, fresh lobster, unique fish and much more. Don't forget to ask for specials because there are many daily options that aren't listed. Great beer selection,... More

I had a business lunch in town right before I needed to go to the airport. I've never been to this place before but gave it a try. We ordered some appetizers and the lunch specials. One of the most unusual dishes on the menu were the Lobster Bisque French Fries (you gotta try them!) and they were delicious. My... More

We met friends here on Saturday night (7/19). We had a reservation which I would recommend as the dining area can get crowded. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar and were impressed with the selection of draft and bottled beers. Once seated at our table-- which was sort of half-round, for four of us, was more...

We usually go to Roland's to eat seafood in the Strip, but we decided to give Luke Wholleys a try. We were promptly seated. Had to ask for table to be wiped as it was greasy. Got our menus and waited. And waited. Asked greeter and got a server. Not her section and seemed bothered. But we got our drinks.... More

A vibrant bohemian atmosphere w decent, not great food, friendly service. Without the server comping our app (raw oysters, the highlight of our meal...delish!) our early dinner via the cost would have been offputting. Not something we can regularly afford to visit.

I love this place. My favorite place to have lunch on the strip. The specials are always wonderful and the lobster bisque fries are just killer. The small is plenty to share for a table of four. People watching is enjoyable too. A fun place, the "ambassador" will get you seated quickly, the bartenders will offer beer samples, enjoy!

Located in the heart of the strip, this "industrial gourmet" restaurant has some of the freshest fish in the city cooked by one of the best seafood chefs I have ever met. He bears the Wholey name; a name synonimous with great food in Pittsburgh. The fish are all very well prepared and paired with excellent sides. He has a... More
