Our server probably could have gotten a few more drink orders from us but she never came back after she dropped off the food. Lots of Penguin fans pre-game and once they left staff seemed to relax around the hostess station.

Met a few friends that came in from out of town. It’s my first trip there and I will be back. The Bloody Mary was great and decorated with a lot of extras. I had the ahi tuna salad and it was very fresh and delicious. Everything was better than expected.

Great service. Food prep and presentation less than expected. Food quality average at best. With Wholey’s name and access to great seafood I expected much more.

This was our first visit to Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grill. It was a more casual bar experience, and we could have dressed more casually than we were. We had their appetizer special of fried oysters, which were delicious. Our entrees of swordfish and halibut were excellent as well. I want to take my kids back for the sushi menu during lunch. My husband is not a fan of sushi, but I saw some of the other customer’s plates, and I want to return. It was a good choice for us since we both like seafood.

We went on a girls lunch, wanted to give this place a shot because of what we’ve heard. Our food was awful, shrimp was very though and overcooked, fish sandwich was also overcooked, over battered, and over greasy, our fries tasted old. Very, very disappointing!! And bill for lunch was $90, very overpriced!!!

Our server Kevin was fantastic in every way. He took my phone call for the reservation and I told him it was my son’s engagement lunch and he assured me he would take care of our party. Food was delicious, atmosphere was awesome, drinks were great and service was over the top!

Delicious food and great service. Valentine's weekend and it was packed (reservations only) but even still we didn't have to wait long for food or drinks. Their staff was working together like a well oiled machine. Will definitely go back and would definitely recommend.

Our server was quick and got us to our game with plenty of time. The food was amazing. My bf had the Alaskan king crab and it was so fresh. My swordfish was finished in a few bites. I was floored with how good it was. Definitely recommend and will come back.

The service was very slow. We were waiting for a friend and initially attributed the lack of service to the fact that our friend was running late, but it continued to be slow even after she arrived. The bottle of wine we ordered from the wine list (cabernet sauvignon) was not the one brought to our table (cabernet franc); apparently the wine listing is a mistake according to our server. One of our wine glasses was dirty, which we didn't notice until the wine was poured. The server took the partially filled glass away and replaced it with a clean empty glass. She didn't offer to bring another glass of wine to replace it. The food was OK, plentiful but nothing outstanding. With wine and a tip, we paid $50 per person, so it was expensive for what it was. We're glad we tried it, but we won't be going back.

The whole staff was friendly and polite. The service was quick, and our server kevin was awesome! and I work as a server at a seafood and steak place so I can be a bit judgy; but I thought he and the whole staff were wonderful. My fiance's risotto was a bit overcooked but everything else was perfect. And the drinks were absolutely amazing and shes even harder to impress than I am. It was an interesting style and there were alot of things to catch your eye. Both the FOH and BOH deserve my thanks, and I look forwarding to coming again some time!

There was a very rowdy group next to us which made it hard to talk (at noon on a Sunday). Otherwise, great place!

The restaurant week dinner offerings were spectacular and delicious. The only negative is that the lobster risotto was a little dry and bland. It was the end of the evening so that may be the reason why.

Loved our server. He didn’t bother us too much but always made sure we were taken care of. The restaurant week menu was amazing. I had lobster bisque (sooo good), bacon wrapped scallops and lobster risotto (amazing) and finished with an amazing dessert. We loved it. Thank you!
