We walked from our hotel (6 blocks) and got caught in a rain storm. We were soaking wet when we entered this white table cloth, very fancy restaurant. No one made us feel out of place or uncomfortable at all. They very kindly gave us an abundance of towels to dry off. The food was amazing. The... read more

Truluck's is an awesome restaurant. I particularly enjoy the Jonah Crab Claws offered at different times during the year, and the always available yummy desserts.

Strange that this son of the Pacific Northwest who worked his college years in the Alaska seafood industry had to finally find the ultimate seafood restaurant in Austin, Texas. All I can say is, WOW, you will not be disappointed! This place doesn't miss a beat...they greet you like a VIP, the decor and ambience are exceptional, live music playing... More

Truluck's Austin has recently had a renovation that absolutely improve the dining experience. The upstairs dining area allow great views of the neighboring streets. Upon entering the restaurant I was greeted immediately by staff that made me fell like VIP and I was directed immediately to my table. Truluck's is a restaurant that can survive just on the quality of... More

Greeted at the door warmly, escorted to the dining area, live music, a waiter (David) who looked after every need, exceptional appetizer, and steaks for main meal - what more could anyone want? Yes, extra room for dessert. We didn't have that. However, even our Parmesan mashed potatoes were really good, as also were the broccoli. My wife had the... More

Had a birthday dinner recently and had a great experience. Staff was ready for us on time for reservation. Had drinks in the bar with live piano before dinner. Nice start if you have time. Once seated, server was very helpful with wine and menu explanations. Discussed crab season and when we could get stone crabs and that crabs available... More

We celebrated our daughter's graduation at Trulucks and had a great experience. We had read reviews about the great service and the staff did not disappoint, from the warm welcome we received from Andrew, to the very friendly and efficient service from our wait staff. Nice setting- we were upstairs and overlooking downtown Austin. The food was really terrific. I... More

We went to Truluck's as it started to rain during a very, very busy weekend in Austin (graduation and Memorial Day weekend). We found a table in the bar area that offered the full menu as well. We had no reservations and the restaurant was packed. We sat, ordered drinks and some hors d;oevres and asked the maitre'd if something... More

We had dinner on a Saturday night and sat on the second floor. This is great for good conversation. Sit in the bar area for a hipper, but noisier, experience. The service was great as was the food. The sea bass was some of the best I have had. We are from Austin and this is one of our go-to... More
