We were for a happy hour on a Monday. Great ambiance with excellent food and drinks. The Oyster a la Rockefeller was outstanding. The same with the Goat Cheese, the Lemon Hat Shrimps and the Margaritas.

Restaurant has a good selection of seafood (including Stone Crab claws) and steaks. My fish was (sea bass) was okay but my brothers halibut was very good. Sides are extra and wine list somewhat pricey. Service was excellent.

This is our go to place for special events. The food is incredible, but at $40 a plate it should be. The sea bass is out of this world at $39, and then start off with a Cesar salad fit an additional $10. They also have an extensive wine list if that's your thing. My wife and I treat ourselves...

Really like this place. Great atmosphere. Pricey, but if you go there and look at menu, you'll know in advance. Bartenders were very attentive. Live music was good, but need to get rid of the pre-recorded music. Both singers had good voices and piano should be enough. Did not eat, but menu is full of seafood and some dishes I... More

This was the best meal my wife and I have ever had at a restaurant. The food, service, and overall experience was excellent! It is a little expensive, but will definately be going back.

First time at this restaurant. Think goodness I went early enough that it was still happy hour. Half price appetizers and select bar drinks. Had the salt and pepper calamari...I'll admit, best calamari that I ever had and the reduced price made it even more desirable. I looked at their full service dinner menu but I closed it quickly after... More

This would have been our second trip here, apparently our reservation was lost somehow. There was no one else waiting to sit staff said it will be at least an hour before we can sit if no one else comes in first? Not my idea of how to treat customers.... went to another place down the road (e.v.) and they... More

We dined at Truluck's for our anniversary. The food and service were wonderful. Monday evening is all you can eat snow crabs, which were very tasty! They brought us a complementary anniversary dessert, which was nice !

I ordered the Hothouse Tomato Salad which was delicious. If you like fresh tomatoes order this salad. The rest of the meal was also great.

We have eaten at other Truluck's restaurants and this one did not disappoint. We were seated promptly and the manager came by before and after dinner to check that all was well. Each member of our party of four ordered steak and everyone was very happy with theirs, each cooked to satisfaction. The wine list was good and the service... More
