I really like the fish sandwich from Benkovitz. You can get it fried or baked; both are very good. Sometimes our office calls ahead, then the wait is not very long to pick up the sandwichws. It is worth the wait, though.

Great take-out seafood which you'd expect from one of Pittsburgh's finest fish markets. This place can get crowded but somehow it doesn't seem so bad after you're holding that huge fish sandwich. Reasonable prices.

First time message:
I just returned to the "burgh after an 10 year absence and headed straight for Benkovitz. The fried fish in a dish was cooked in dark brown fat that should have been thrown away days ago, had a thick mystery coating and was burnt. The other order, smelts, was cooked the same way but in addition, the smelts were so fishy tasting that they were inedible. Like so many things, the memory was better than the experience.
The grease soaked through the plastic boxes and bags.
Yuk!

For fresh fish, this is the best in the city. I've bought many different kinds of fresh fish here as well as their salads, and have always been more than satisfied. Isn't even any "fishy" smell in the place...
I'm a huge fish sandwich fan too and this is still the best in the city that I've had.
Gets crowded around lunch and the holidays, so watch out for that.

I'm originally from the Boston area, so my standards for fresh seafood (especially shellfish) is extremely. Ive purchased fish from Benkovitz three times, and it has always been excellent. The quality is high, the seafood is extremely fresh, and the staff is very helpful. The price is also very reasonable. The tuna filet I bought last would have gone for $50 at a good restaurant. I paid $15 for it.

I recommend anyone who cooks and loves fresh seafood to check them out. Looks like a restaurant from the outside, but there is a very clean fish market inside. Youll find a selection of whole fish, filets, and steaks as well as a range of shellfish. My only complaint is that their selection can be limited.
