Restaurant Profile: Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — If you’re in the Strip District and in the mood for something different, there’s a new restaurant you might want to try – Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille.
The Wholey name is synonymous with fresh seafood in Pittsburgh and this new restaurant promises to live up that reputation.
“Whether it’s live-shucked Blue Point oysters on the Shuckekhan and live Maryland blue crabs boiled right in front of the building, or fresh Wild Caught Alaskan King Salmon and Japanese Yellowtail, we strive to bring in the best,” says Matthew Slang, assistant general manager.
The restaurant, located at 2106 Penn Avenue, boasts a casual atmosphere and features the city’s only Shuckakaan Raw Bar, in addition to a full service cocktail lounge and more.
The menu was crafted by owner Luke Wholey who has been cooking since he was a young boy.
“It’s in my blood; I eat fish every day, it’s my passion,” he said.
