Enjoyed a weekend visit while visiting our son. Restaurant recommended by hotel so we gave it a try. Nice menu selection consisting of swordfish, scallops, salmon and vast selection of appetizers. Appetizers were great--lobster fries, tuna. Entries were good (salmon and crab and swordfish and crab). Scallop and shrimp was bland and not as good as others. HUGE deserts (cheesecake... More

We were visiting from out of town and were going to a Pirate game. We wanted some place not too far from the stadium since we were not familiar with the area. Luke Wholey's was a nice find. The ambiance very casual and laid back. It looks like it used to be a garage with wide open front doors. I... More

If you want excellent seafood there is nowhere else to go! The fish is fresh, the drinks are strong and Jaime the barmaid is not only beautiful on the outside but just as beautiful on the inside. Come and get the catfish bites or sushi yummy!

Outstanding seafood. Great service. Nice atmosphere. The menu selection is abundant. I tried the bisque and was pleasantly surprised. It was as good or better than any I have tried. This will now be on my must visit list every time I am in town.

An unpretentious place with great food. The hot pepper crusted tuna was outstanding. Good beer, good service, good food. What more can you ask for.
