Heard that this was the place for fresh fish, and it was just what we had hoped for. One side of he ground floor is a massive fresh fish market with live trout, stripped bass and lobsters in massive tanks. The other side is a...More

Went to the shop and I was truly dissappointed. Over priced on some of the fresh fish, shrimp, crabs etc. Then we ordered some food and I was dissappointed again. How do you have the nerve to serve frozen shrimps when you have fresh shrimps....More

Stopped by to get a Whaler before leaving town. I'm so glad they have a small parking lot for whiskey shoppers. This worked well. I was able to park, get in and out of line in less than 30 minutes. The Whaler is a 1lb...More

Movies is a place where you want to go to get the freshest fish possible. The fish sandwich is unbelievably big. If there was a word that could supersede the word fresh you would be talking about Wholey's.

I love Wholey's fish market and supermarket. The produce there is great but, I wish they would do something about the restaurant. We went there after church on Sunday and it was terrible. It tasted as if it had been reheated a number of times....More

Another must hit when in Pitt. Great friendly service, top to bottom, from the owner to the cashiers. We get our fish and sea food for the freezer here, and fresh sea food lunch. They (the Wholey's) do it right!

So I had lunch, although its a lunch spot and fish market combined. The building is old, like a warehouse which I personally like... but worthy of note if you are looking for cloth napkins. Walk in and choose from (a) FULLY stocked fish market......More

Wholey's is primarily a market. It sell seafood, meats, produce and groceries. Its selection of seafood, both fresh and frozen is the biggest, and probably the best, in Pittsburgh. It also has a fast food counter that sells giant fish sandwiches, fried shrimp, deep fried...More

I've been coming to Wholey's since I was a kid. I picked up a whole salmon fillet for smoking with some muscles and giant Argentine Red Shrimp. Absolutely excellent for a Pittsburgh fish market. Get a fish sandwich and love life.
