Disappointed. Service was slow and food took to long. Smaller menu options then prior times. This was our third time. The first two were awesome but not this one.

We had some good sushi and the Seafood Bisque was outstanding! The sautéed calamari appetizer was a little small, but tasty. The noise level was the only thing that wasn't enjoyable. It was kind of hard to have a conversation without shouting. But we'll definitely be back.

This place is magnificent!!! Oysters are the freshest oysters you can get in town. In fact these are the best oysters I ate ever. The food is very delicious in general. The salmon main course is so good that we ate our main courses and ordered one more to share. There is another special dish we had an opportunity to try: soft crab, I can not express the feeling how good it was. Just amazing!

Fun atmosphere and good food. Ava the hostess was very sweet and made sure we had a table we were happy with which we really appreciated!
Pretty noisy though but the open air side is very pleasant!

Fabulous seafood and fish. Lobster roll with lobster bisque sauce was best I ever had. Excellent cod fish. I wish they delivered to Connecticut. Nice ambiance too.

We celebrated our 29th anniversary May 30th. Kevin was our server, and he was superb. The food was outstanding - my hubby had steak, scallops and shrimp, he added a lobster tail which we shared, and I had crab legs. We started off with seafood bisque and crab dip. We took half of the dip home with extra tortilla chips thanks to Kevin. Everything was delicious. Pricey, but well worth it. We will be back! Once the annoying noisy girls left the upstairs bar, the ambience was much better.

Highly recommend reservations. The music inside is very loud.! The quantity, presentation, and taste of our food was high excellence! Service was top notch— thank you Kevin our waiter and host staff. If you’re not going to Luke’s you are missing out! Last but not least— you MUST enjoy their signature Bloody Mary—-soooooo delicious and cleverly presented.

All was going well until we ordered dessert. I asked for decaf coffee, and when the waiter returned, his response was simply - "Sorry, we're all out of coffee." No offer to make a fresh pot, no offer of anything instead. Quite a disappointment and quite a shoddy level of customer service.

The food here is terrific and there's lots of variety. The service is friendly and attentive. I was a little annoyed, though, to see that the female servers were wearing skin-tight shorts or leggings, while the males were wearing loose, comfortable pants. I'm so ready for us to get past this.

We went for the first time for my birthday. It was ok. I had the crablegs, they were just ok. You don't get much for the price.
My boyfriend had the chicken parm since he doesn't eat seafood, the portion was large.
The manager was a bit rude when we arrived and overall service was slow. I guess i had higher expectations after reading some of the reviews. The house made tiramisu was very good.

Excellent dinner! One wall of restaurant was open to Penn Avenue and it was very pleasant and comforting during COVID to eat al fresco. Food was excellent. Seafood tasted very fresh and was perfectly prepared. Side dishes were delicious. Servers wore masks, which we all appreciated, and were very attentive. This was my first time at Luke Wholey's but it certainly won't be my last. Highly recommend!

If you want really fresh fish, this is the place to go. There are lots of standard options: lobster, crab, fish, sushi, etc. Plus, they have really inventive appetizers like Lobster Caprese.
