Not your typical fish and chips. The fish sandwich is enough to feed a village! It's so fresh and delicious with great fresh cut fries. Besides the food to order, you can pick up the best fresh fish in the burgh. This is a must see!

We had planned to go shopping at Wholey fish market and were pleasantly surprised to find that they offered meals as well. We got the fish sandwich.

You need go no further for fish and chips than Wholey's. Part of the best fish market in the strip district.

You want it - they have it. One stop shopping for cheeses, veggies, seafood, fish, meat, chicken, sushi, or whatever food you want. It is an experience that is not duplicated anywhere else in the Strip.

We happened on Wholeys seafood market while strolling through the Strip District. The freshest seafood anywhere! They have fish swimming in a tank! It's that fresh! They steam lobsters and lobster tails to go. Went through the line and ordered fried cod, lobster bisque, clam chowder, seafood gumbo, and took it upstairs to eat at the tables they have set...

We used to live in Pittsburgh 34 years ago and always enjoyed the fish sandwiches at Wholey's. We were back in Pittsburgh for a family wedding and went to Wholey's for a fish sandwich and were not disappointed! They were as good as we remember!

the Ultimate in fresh seafood, poultry and meats. Do not miss this on your visit to the Strip. Scottish Salmon a favorite. Clams, mussels, crab, lobster, you name it, its there. The greatest place!!! Never had a bad experience while there, or with any of the food.

Was our first time here; the young woman working the upstairs seating was very courteous and helpful to us. Hubby got the 1 lb fish sandwich with mac n cheese and I got the 1/2 lb fish sandwich with the lobster mac n cheese. I also picked up a small container of cole slaw to try and a raspberry tea....
