Service is outstanding! This store is an adventure not to be missed with awesome displays of fresh and frozen fish. Go further and find extensive offerings of meats, then specialty foods and produce. Adults and kids will enjoy the toy train that travels overhead. The place is always hopping. Crowds are common on weekdays, but everyone seems fine with it,... More

Fresh fish, hand battered and cooked in front of you. Fast, a mound of fish...do yourself a favor and get the Cod on soft bun for around $6. Line moves fast at lunch and on weekends. The lobster Bisque is a good add on at only $3 and some change for a bowl. A must stop when you hit the... More

This is a seafood market, but they have a side kitchen where you can buy fried food. I had their fish sandwich and it's good. But I mainly go here for my food. You can buy Any meat or vegetable at a reasonable price... They also have fish from all over the world. I go often.

If you enjoy a delicious fish sandwich, then put Wholey's on your list. The cod is batter coated and deep fried...simple and tasty. The menu is fairly limited, but what they do serve, they do it well. We'll be back again when we need our fried fish fix!

It must be me. The fish sandwich I had was way too greasy and I didn't enjoy. Maybe it was a bad day. I love fish sandwiches and was looking forward to a great one and I was disappointed

Absolutely fabulous Friday job on the cod. And a big fluffy yet crusty and stable bun. Perfect. I also always get the lobster mac & cheese. It's really good too. I haven't had sushi and I've never bought any fish because I'm always just passing through at the holidays. But it sure is fun to browse the market.

Been all over the east and west coast and this store for their seafood stand back for no other. The variety and availability leaves nothing to be desired. I have never had a bad product or experience in this store. Shop with confidence!!

Wish we had one back in North Carolina for all my tailgating needs. The market had just about any kind of meat, poultry or fish you could think of. I will definitely be back the next time I'm in Pittsburgh.

We made a stop here while walking down the strip as it was recommended by friends. I ordered a Softshell Crab sandwich. It came with two crabs on a fresh roll. Delicious! Most of their food is fresh fried. They offer a variety of seafood items to choose from at VERY reasonable prices. The coleslaw was quite good too. My... More

I have eaten here many a time. They offer a variety of seafood to eat on site. Most of it is fried. If you prefer your fish baked they will bake it to order. They do offer a nice clean dine in area. You do have to stand in line to order your food. If you come here thinking it... More
