Great!

Amazing food. I was born and raised here in Austin and this is a place that you must eat at while in Austin. The service is unbeatable & the food is just as good!

While visiting Austin we decided to try Truluck's based on the menu. It turned out to be a memorable evening. The staff are eager to provide a great experience. We were met by a gentleman that was familiar with the reservations that evening, and he knew what were there for as soon as I offered my name. Our waiter, Beau,... More

Too high rated for what it is. Menu is in between steakhouse and something else. Options are limited in both. I ate the tomato with cheese and bacon and the diablo filet. Both too dressed and creamy. Pinot was good and austere. Excellent old days live music. Browse around. Many options in very few blocks.

The service at Teuluck's is impeccable. Food is fabulous. We were first introduced to Truluck's in Houston. The location is fun for entertainment afterwards. We enjoyed the Cedar Courtyard down the street with live entertainment.

They have two locations and, I have now been to both. Downtown has a bit more of a classy atmosphere in that it is a two story restaurant and the second floor is all glass. They have an all-you-can-eat crab night and, they were wonderful. My bride had a broiled flounder and loved it. Although it is pricey, you get... More

Growing up in Maryland, I learned not to trust seafood from other states, but Trulucks is certainly an exception. The service was incredible, they were so organized. Even though we were early for our reservation, we were seated right away. Our food was delicious, and the dessert was amazing!! It was moderately pricey, but good seafood tends to be that... More

Visiting friends in Austin, Texas, I spotted this restaurant as we were driving around. My friends said it was a bit high-class!! but I insisted it was to be my treat and we booked a table. That day the heavens opened and we arrived mid-downpour, scurrying into the restaurant to escape the floods. Some customers had been delayed because of... More

We attended a dinner hosted by a sales rep. The menu offered options for chicken, seafood, or steak. I order the redfish with Ponchitrain sauce. It was out of this world ; however, the lobster bisque had a very unique taste that didn't appeal to my palette. Overall, the food was fantastic.

I went to Eddie V's first, unfortunately because it is a restaurant that serves better food than Trulucks. Trulucks though exceeds in service with attentiveness especially by the Maitre d'. The marble of the meat was not as good, the shrimp not as firm and smaller in size. The oysters were well presented but not plump and devoid of that... More
