Was here a year ago and it was the most memorable meal/experience of my Pittsburgh trip. Returned this year, was NOT disappointed. FAB fish sandwich, best ever (really). Great sushi too. Threw in a couple of oysters out front, wow, what a meal. And a fun place to walk around with the kids. An institution, and deservedly so.

We tried a couple of the mixers made in-house. Wow! Great mixology in this place! The food looked great but we had just had lunch elsewhere. Would love to come back again next time.

I love coming to Wholey's . Always great fish sandwich and fried oysters. The lobster rolls are wonderful as well. Always a stop when I get to the Strip

My girlfriend and I love coming to Wholey's. This place has everything. The lay out of fresh fish is amazing you can get just about any type of fish that you want here and some types you can get fresh out of the fish tank like trout and whiting. They will also cut them up right in front of you.... More

I love shopping for seafood and meat here as it is super fresh, good quality, and you can find things that you would never find in a giant eagle. The escargot is really good and conveniently packed with butter and parsley already - yum. I also like to eat here, the fried fish is really good and so is anything... More

Excellent fish sandwich and sushi all made fresh while you wait. There is a huge eating area upstairs where you can take your food to eat. It's a fish market and grocery store. There is so much to see if you wander around. Parking is free if you shop at Wholly's!

Wholey's is a must-see in Pittsburgh. It's not just a store, it's an experience. Once you go, you know. Whole fish laid out on ice, big cuts of meat, fresh sushi, huge fish sandwiches all in a fun atmosphere... What's not to love?

It's literally been years since I've visited this establishment but one day on my lunch break my manager treated her department to free lunch at the infamous fresh seafood restaurant/store that provides plenty of options large portions and sides that are filling the place was very busy took a few minutes to find a parking space in the lot across...

Pretty basic menu, the prices are really reasonable and for an inland city like Pittsburgh it probably has the freshest seafood available in a market like setting. Plus it is a great stop for a quick bite if you are wandering around The Strip. Don't come expecting a full service, sit down place.
