Great food & atmosphere!

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... read 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

Attended a business dinner with about 40 people. The staff was absolutely fantastic! Very professional and they seem phased by a large group. The food was outstanding and the selection was very good. They also have a very nice bar area and there was live entertainment the night we were there and he was very good.

Always a top notch spot. Great vibe and atmosphere. A great piano player NOT TOO LOUD! so we ate at the bar area. Nice and dark if that's what you want. Not cheap but it weeds out the area shoppers & strollers crowd

STILL THE BEST after dinning there on and off for 10 years. Happy Hour before dinner has changed hours so if you want a drink before dinner check the new times out. We are not regulars as we are limited on money. But do eat a couple times a year. The service is Top Class and they make sure you... More

We dined here Easter Sunday evening. This place was amazing. The food, service, atmosphere were all perfect! I had dungeness crab, my husband had tuna and our daughter had steak. Everything was delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and they brought out a beautiful dessert with Happy Birthday on the plate, it was very nice. I loved that the manager... More

Recently when to Truluck's for a business dinner. Nothing was bad but, nothing was great. If I had to pick the best item I had it was the raisin nut bread served with the appetizers. I ordered the NY Strip steak and it certainly was good but, for $50 it should have been much better. Service was also ok, just... More
