My boyfriend recently took me to True for dinner, I knew nothing about the place prior to going. I was skeptical about the fried chicken skins and the crawfish beignets, they were to die for along with the fall bisque. My main course was the shrimp and grits, which this was the first time I've ever had grits, and now... More

Having been on a road trip through the south it was a welcome place to eat good food, healthy, fresh and local and not cooked to death. The steak was excellent as was the bread at the start and my chicken skins starter alcohol list, nice selection of local beers

Our entrees were Duck Confit and Pork Two Ways...pork belly and pork... More

Was out in Montgomery on business. Quaint little restaurant district. Interesting local, seasonal menu prepared and presented perfectly. The service was 5 stars. Absolutely the best peanut butter pie that I've ever had.

I had a love meal called Alabama Pork and sweet potato mash. The meal was a reasonable portion and the atmosphere and service were great. My daughter truly enjoyed her meal but she only had two appetizers. It is situated in an upscale neighbor of working professionals.

True is rated #1 in Montgomery so we had to try it. Everything was excellent - atmosphere, food, service and prices. The bittermilk tom collins drink was very good. We started with the "Crawfish Beignets" which were very good with a lovely pimento duck sauce that made the dish. Next we had the "Marinated Squash & Lump Crab". Very good... More

This place was the best meal we had in Montgomery. Everything we ate and drank was amazing, the service was great! We wished we had gone back a second time before we left town.

It was surprisingly empty for a Saturday night. Felt silly saying we made reservations - definitely unnecessary. But I hope this place gets busier because it was great. Great atmosphere and setting. Really quality and tasty food, albeit more expensive than I'd like to pay. I hope it sticks around!
