Seldom do we go to nice restaurants like this one and not be over bothered or interrupted by the waitstaff. This dinner was the best in years. Our Waiter, Mason, could not have been better. He knows how to walk by without stopping and be able to tell if he should. He made the dinner perfect. As well as the... More

These guys GET IT! The customer is number ONE at Truluck's. Amazing experience, knowledgeable staff and out of this world food, our waiter, Mason Pitluk was a total professional and is proud of his profession. Pointing out all the good treats and never over-selling the meal. The manager Pedro Lopez mad the rounds and his personal hands-on approach is refreshing.... More

I made reservations for our 32nd Anniversary. Upon arrival we were greeted at the door and indicated we had a 5 p.m. Reservation. The gentleman quickly congratulated us on our Anniversary. We had a drink at the bar downstairs which was absolutely gorgeous with the new remodel. We were taken upstairs by a young lady who again mentioned our special... More

My husband and I along with another couple recently enjoyed a Friday evening dinner at Trulucks. The food was excellent and the overall service from the greeting to the food service was exceptional. The restaurant itself is beautiful. It is one of our favorites.

The food was outstanding and the service was attentive--without being intrusive. The stone crabs were wonderful. The roasted chicken was among the best I have ever had. Will definitely go back.

We stopped at the bar before dinner - bartender was warm and wonderful, and the drinks he made were good. Continuing our evening upstairs, however, the dinner was thoroughly disappointing. From their famous stone crab claws to the chocolate bag dessert, everything tasted stale and lukewarm. We ordered center-cut steak, ciopinni, and sea bass. We go to the Truluck in... More

Was there for the South by Southwest Festival. Crazy all over town. But, when we arrived we were sat promptly for a 8:30pm reservation. We had a young lady training. She was so nice and tried so hard. Let me just say everything was great about this place. Even at the end when we already had apps, a salad each... More

We have always loved dining at Truluck's. We always enjoyed it before the remodel, but since the remodel, I think it's gotten even better! The upstairs dining is great. My husband always gets the crab legs and they never disappoint. The last two times we've eaten there, I've gotten the Dynamite Filet. Delicious! Jennifer was our server the last two... More
