Trulucks is our favorite place for a celebration dinner.. When I booked the reservation, they asked if we were celebrating anything, and I told them it was our birthdays. When we arrived for our reservation, we were seated immediately and the server greeted us with a "Happy Birthday". The food and service were both superb,. The finale was the wonderful... More

While it can be expensive, the food was fantastic. Service was good but we also were there early so we cannot judge how it would be when it was very busy. Steak and seafood were both fantastic. Meal wasn't rushed and was well paced. Only complaint is that the music was louder than we thought it needed. Music should be... More

Our family decided to eat out this year for Thanksgiving. Truluck's offered a Traditional Thanksgiving Menu. But once we arrived, we decided to take advantage of their seafood. MY son ordered the lobster bisque and the Surf & Turf -beef fillet w/ lobster. My wife ordered the same as above except she had the beef fillet w/ scallops. I had... More

My husband and I always go to Truluck's for our combined anniversary/my birthday - conveniently it is in the stone crab claw season. These claws are by far the best I have ever had in Austin, TX. In addition, you can go to the piano bar any day of the week for happy hour drinks and appetizers at half price!!... More

I've been to Truluck's happy hour that is marvelous, but family took us for dinner after Thanksgiving and it was excellent. I had the Blackened Red Fish Pontchartrain; it was cooked perfectly and the sauce wonderful. They even let me substitute the wilted garlic spinach for their specialty rice and it was cooked perfectly. Others had the scallops' special and... More

Hostess was great and seated us immediately upon arrival. Business was not too busy and water was offered as soon as we were seated. Our waiter was horrible! We have eaten at the location in Dallas Uptown and service and food was above wonderful. Our waiter was not very attentive and food was not to our expectation. While still eating... More

For my birthday, we dined at Truluck's Seafood, Arboretum after a 3 year absence. From the beginning the experience could not have been better. The hostess was courteous and our table was set for 2. Our waiter introduced himself, Nick, and was pleasant and attentive throughout the night. His recommendations for wine were perfect. The crab bisque was excellent with... More

I've been to several Trucluck's restaurants and have been disappointed. The food has been inconsistent. I must say this location was delightful! Dined with friends to celebrate a birthday and everything was amazing. There were 5 of us and we all had different entrees. I highly recommend this location. So much better than the Houston location!

Recently I went to Napa last year and experienced the best tasting green salad I have ever eaten. I loved it so much I went back again this year and had to have that salad again. I was absolutely delighted when I tried the California green salad at Truluck's on my visit last week. Amazing and tasted just like the... More
