Truluck's is an upscale seafood restaurant. The Happy Hour in the bar area is popular in addition to regular dining. Happy Hour hor d oeuvres are priced starting around $10. They are delicious and nicely plated. The regular dining prices are quite high but worth a business or special occasion visit.

We chose this location to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were greeted at the door shown to our table and introduced to our server. Server was very knowledgeable of the wine list and menu and assisted us in ordering. Food and drinks were served promptly. All the food items were served in an attractive manner and at the proper temperature.... More

I don't even know where to begin. From the first moment to the fabulous anniversary complimentary dessert to the impeccable service, this place nailed it!!!! The food was out of this world, happy hour, atmosphere everything. Our waiter David was most professional and made it his goal that everything be perfect for the evening. French press coffee finished a fantastic... More

Really good food. We had crab cake appetizer. Great crab meat and sauce on the side. Had blackened redfish - it was excellent. Spicy. Yummy. Had a good glass of Pinot Grigio - Ponzi. Also had a cup of French pressed coffee - awesome. The whole experience was great.

Had dinner on a Saturday night at the bar. Live music (male and female singers) was great and the food was delicious. I had the salt and pepper calamar and the seared scallops. Great meal and time. The young lady and guy at the bar were very nice as well.

Ate here with a group while in Austin on business. The customer service was really amazing and the food matched. I had the steak and lobster tail and I can honestly say I have never seen a lobster tail that big. The steak was cook perfectly and melted in your mouth. I'm not a fan of oysters, but the Oysters...

Dinner with couples to celebrate anniversaries was enjoyable but it could have been better. The waiter service was outstanding as was the wine selection, but the food was just not worth what you paid and the kitchen took a long time to get it out. Food at nice restaurants is getting more and more expensive and for that it should... More

I've been here at least a couple times & every time I'm just so relaxed by the atmosphere. The piano player and singer over in the bar area really set the mood. The bartender made my drink better than expected and it tasted good. The food was delicious. I believe I had the steak, YUM! But they are better known... More

Used OpenTable to make a reservation for three of us. We were seated promptly in a nice booth. Our server was new (to both Truluck's and higher-end restaurants) but he was quite friendly and made up for any issues with extra effort. Nice selection of wine. We went with a couple orders of crab cake for appetizer (one large crab... More
