After an hour long wait to go 12 blocks, we were tended to very nicely at Trulucks. Such gracious treatment by the staff downstairs (wonderful piano player!!!) and it continued upstairs. The new (to us) seating with wonderful views of Austin from our booth was so comfortable. Our waiter suggested the blue point crab appetizers and wine which were so... More

Best steak I've had in my life. The service was unparalleled. And such a cool view from the upstairs dining area. Simply put, YOU WILL LOVE IT. Top of my list for an incredible date and worth every penny.

Has a business dinner for 22. Service has fantastic, especially for such a large group. The menu had been pre-selected for us. Filet was over well-done which was a big disappointment. Probably a great place for smaller groups. The new bar area is wonderful and the love piano entertainment is wonderful.

I met with a potential business partner there on new years eve, we ended up working out an agreement and were so excited about the new business. He tries to sneak away and order their most expensive scotch to celebrate and gets refused service, a manager said he was drunk, in turn our whole table wasn't allowed to order any... More

We wanted to take our daughter out for her first birthday, and while Truluck's is one of our favorites, were concerned it might not be welcoming to small children. The experience turned out quite the opposite, as we called in advance to see if it was okay, and once welcomed, the hospitality was 5 star. Despite having few menu items... More

New renovations and second floor spectacular views of Austin at night were a highlight. This location offers the same excellent service, management attention and ambiance as other Truluck's locations we have frequented. This evening we only wanted light dining and were served stone crabs, raw oysters, salt & pepper calamari and the wedge salad, all of which were superb. Again,... More

What a pleasure it was to begin our date New Year's Eve downtown Austin at Truluck's Seafood, dining upstairs! Many expansions seem awkward but the new 2nd level at Truluck's is elegant and terrific! We chose to try Truluck's for New Years Eve dinner before meeting up with friends to hear The Bare Feat Band nearby at The Key Bar... More

The Steak was fantastic; properly cooked with tasty sides. I sat at the bar; service and patrons were all friendly. Good location in central Austin.

I think the five star rating pretty much speaks for itself. I had the redfish in creole sauce and it was simply fantastic. This was actually my second visit and even after a very positive initial visit this meal still exceeded expectations. Each of my family members enjoyed their meals as well. We enjoyed a great variety of choices and... More

From the service to atmosphere and attention we received was phenomenal, the only thing was my steak and potatoes was room temperature not hot like how I would have enjoyed it more!
