Went to Benkovitz today for lunch. At 11:55 the line was long, thirty minuets to order. It is a Friday in Lent, but they should be prepared for it. They were just about out of Manhattan clam chowder. Mine had about two table spoons of solids in it. I'm serious. In a cup of shrimp bisque you could tast globs... More

Loved their fish sandwich, and their retail fresh fish selection was extensive. Knowledgeable, helpful staff.

This is really a Pittsburgh tradition. You go to buy fresh fish here, in The Strip, and stop to have a hand breaded fish sandwich. The funny part, is that you have to stand up at these handmade counters all set up in rows, and eat your sandwich shoulder to shoulder with the next patron, until you are done! You... More

The last time I delt there, I ordered and pre-payed for fish and shell fish 3 weeks before Christmas Eve. The morning of Christmas Eve at about 11:30 AM I recieved a call, and was told that all the product they recieved for the holidays were not fresh and they rejected the shipments. It was then recommended I go to... More

Fast food type delivery so don't expect much anything in the way of service. The fried fish sandwiches make it worthwhile. One must assume the proper position; lean way forward over the counter with elbows & feet splayed so juicy drips are not on you. I recommend the fried fish sandwich experience here rather than the more well known Wholeys... More

Lots of hype about this place on here, so a friend and I tried it out for lunch. Lots of noise and hustle and bustle. Of course, it is in the warehouse district. We thought that the sandwiches were good and fairly fresh, but not really worth seeking out. The help was somewhat impatient and did not take the time... More
