Lunch at Luke's was very good. Crab cakes were excellent and the Ahi Tuna was great. One of us had the Mussels which were the biggest I have ever seen and enjoyed by the group. There are several beers to choose from and specialty drinks too.

Within a mile south of the convention center. Moderately priced fresh seafood, great sushi and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Kevin was our host/server and he was great- his recommendations were on point (thanks Kevin!). We will definitely return if we are ever in Pittsburgh again!

Stopped in for lunch here as a break from shopping on the Strip..;. a needed break. Seafood dishes were excellent and a decent selection of beers on tap. Since it is run by the son of the owner of Wholey's seafood market, the fish is fresh and well prepared.

A busy little restaurant in the heart of Pittsburgh's Strip District, Luke Wholey's focus is on seafood.....especially super-fresh salmon. My wife and I were there for lunch on a week day...Was seated at a table one row back from the sidewalk. The waiter couldn't have been more friendly, gave good suggestions, and made sure everything was to our liking. I... More

If you like oysters and your in the Pittsburgh area you should check this place out. Unbelievably fresh, and several different types. Really, really good. Cheap? Heck no, but we're talking about really fresh oysters. Cheap isn't what you should be looking for.

Visiting the Burgh and met some friends at this their favorite place. Oysters were plump and very fresh, sushi roll "The Kitchen Sink" didn't disappoint! Atmosphere on a warm Summer's evening was open air and energetic without being chaotic. Unique original aquatic art decorates the wall. Staff was friendly and engaging. Only downside was service got a bit slow. May... More

Came through town for a wedding weekend and found this place through a friend. The BEST bloody mary ever. The soft-shell crab was cooked to perfection and this drink could serve as a meal. The sweet bacon and jumbo shrimp were to die for. We also had an incredible salmon sushi roll and fresh oysters from the upper east (cold... More

The food was just ok and was pretty over priced in my opinion. It was a bit different than what I would expect from a Wholeys establishment

I ordered the steel city lobster roll and let me tell you I was very impressed! I have eaten quite a few lobster rolls and these ranked right up there with the ones I've eaten off the dock in Maine! They were a nice portion size and filled me right up! My wife also had lobster roll and was just... More
