Our service was excellent! Awesome waiter who's name I cannot remember- from NY, you know who you are ...and thank you for making our daughters birthday special. Food was great except for the escargot- maybe personal preference but a bit bland. Missing that super rich combo of butter and garlic. The tomato salad was great. The chopped salad was interesting...can't... More

For my money this is the best pkace out north for truly fresh seafood, variety and atmosphere. Usually uts all about the crab claws, but on my last visit I had the New York strip. It was excellent and the shrimp cocktail appetizer made a perfect match. Sometimes the Caesar salad is the best in town, but that part can... More

This small chain serves seafood and other high end fare with a decent wine list though a little pricey as you'd expect. A cool bar area with piano music on some evenings.

We went here for my fiancee's birthday as a party of 6. The service was impeccable but the food was not a good value. Our bill with tip was 480.00. We had a half dozen oysters, one bottle of Cava, entrees and one ginormous dessert to share. The dynamite filet was supposed to have lobster, crab and shrimp in a... More

For our 6yr wedding anniversary, my husband and I chose Truluck's because you can't get better seafood or live music ambiance in North Austin. We really enjoyed our salad and steak tartare appetizers and devoured our mains - my chilled shellfish tower and his all-you could eat crab legs special. We would have loved a nicer table (we were seated... More

WE started with cocktails that were crafted perfectly. After that we had the chilled seafood platter. Fantastic! The crab cakes and scallops were to die for. Service was spectacular.

Seriously... THE BEST HAPPY HOUR IN AUSTIN! Half price appetizer that are of the charts good in both taste and in quality. I love the beef tartar that is on the current happy hour menu. Also try the caipirinha cocktail. Wow!

The small filet is just right for me; with the bread and salad it makes a great meal We also had crab cakes and they were great; lots of crab and not too much filler. Good service, but not a buget place.

We were looking for somewhere new to dine on a double date and we decided on Truluck's based on the fabulous feedback from friends and family. This was our first experience and what a treat it was! Parking was a bit tight but that is to be expected on a Saturday night. We made reservations so there was no delay... More
