Looked at the online menu and seen a few dinners I wanted to try and when we arrived was told they didn't have the appetizer that we wanted, they didn't have the coconut shrimp the crab legs went up to 50.00 a pound.

The catfish bites were a great recommendation from our waitress. We enjoyed the soft interior and crispy exterior.

Monica was outstanding! The sushi suggestion was greatly appreciated. My shrimp po boy was cooked perfectly and the bacon is the best bacon I’ve had anywhere.

We love going to Luke Wholey's! Every time we go I say I'm going to get something different, but I always order the crab legs and they are amazing! My husband has tried several different dishes and has yet to find one he didn't like. The ahi tuna entrée is also to die for. We brought my parents there for the first time last weekend. My dad is not a huge fish person but he LOVED their wagyu burger. My mom had the Scottish salmon stuffed with crab and said it might have been the best thing she's ever eaten. I highly recommend going!

Always delicious. Whether it’s fresh oysters and sushi or fried fish and fries- Luke Wholeys knows seafood.

Their wait staff is attentive and friendly. Humorous and a light atmosphere for dining.

Great place for lunch or dinner.

My wife and I had a great time and great food at Luke’s. The food was top notch although a little pricey. I think if they had table cloths and linen napkins maybe it would justify the price.

We went for lunch on a Saturday. The food was excellent. I had the clam chowder - I usually have the Lobster Bisque which is exceptional, but wanted a change. I then just had a small salad with Lemon Ginger dressing - highly recommend it.

We ordered sushi. The rolls were mostly rice and sloppy looking. We tried rolls, sashimi and negril (however you spell that, lol) The menu felt a little overpriced for the quality of some items. Service was good, unfortunately I was sad to see we really weren’t social distanced. Everyone was placed in the same section and half the restaurant wasn’t being used.

The food is always amazing! We’ve been coming here for a few years now specifically for their brunch and the Steel city lobster roll. We were a little disappointed to see that this was removed from their new limited menu and that prices really skyrocketed since the last time we came. We ended up getting the regular lobster roll and it was still fantastic. Hopefully they will be bringing back their full menu soon!

Third time at Luke’s. Amazing.

Even in COVID, food was phenomenal. Drinks were good and timely. I live in Charleston, SC, and visit Luke Wholey’s when I’m In Pittsburgh because it’s some of the best seafood I’ve had. There is a reason you need a reservation.

The waitress was great. Very friendly and professional. My husband had a huge fried catfish sandwich with Mac and cheese. They both had lots of flavor. I had the shrimp and chips. My shrimp were a little over cooked. All in all, the food was good. I didn’t like having to share the same bathroom as the men!

Went here on a much-needed date night after being cooped up in the house. We started with the lobster bisque soup--it was creamy and very flavorful! Loved the swirls on top. We also had 6 Maine oysters--one of the reasons I give the food a 4 is because they didn't have any selection of oysters left on a weekend, and that was one of our main reasons for going! The oysters we did have were delicious, and I really like their mignonette. Hopefully next time they'll have a wider selection.

For our actual meals, I had the soft shell crab street tacos and my boyfriend had the cod sandwich. I've personally never had soft-shell crab before, so I wasn't sure what the texture was supposed to be. I could definitely still feel the texture of the shell and it still made a crunch when I ate it. I'm not sure if "soft" shell crabs are supposed to still have that crunch, but nevertheless it was good, just a little chewy! They only put one corn shells around the tacos, even though the corn shells easily break. Usually with corn shells there's two. The waitress was kind enough to give me some extra on the side for the taco I took home, and it made great leftovers the next day for lunch. The boyfriend loved his cod sandwich, it was about as big as my head!

The ambiance was a little confusing. It was a little loud/chaotic but also a little fancy? But there were also big screens to watch a football game or two while you're there. Seems like the place doesn't know what type of restaurant it wants to be, it conveys a lot of different vibes from when you walk in the door to when you sit down and eat. Loved the art on the walls. Definitely "Wild" as the restaurant name implies.

We'll be back here for sure!

This booking was for my daughter’s birthday. I’ve been a patron of Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille since it opened. It is the best fresh seafood restaurant in Pittsburgh and an excellent choice for a casual dining experience. Most of Luke’s staff has been with him for many years. They are knowledgeable, helpful, courteous, and always looking to provide the best dining experience possible. Always a great choice to fill your seafood fix.
