I frequent this Truluck's about 6-8 times a year and it never fails to impress me. Food is very good. if you are on a budget don't go here. It is for the person that likes to indulge yourself once in a while. Seafood is there specialty and is it ever. The bar always seems to have just the last... More

I was taken to Truluck's for a birthday Happy Hour celebration. Happy Hour ends at 6:30 (I understand it used to end at 7:00) When I requested a 2nd drink at 6:25 I was told that Happy Hour ended and anyway since I hadn't finished my current drink I was not allowed to order another for Happy Hour. REALLY!?!?!?! I... More

Visited this location for happy hour after having dinner at the downtown location. Same good drink prices but the oysters on the half-shell at this location were extremely salty. My husband had the calamari and the oysters Rockefeller. Said they were both great.

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
