Trulucks in Ft. Lauderdale - Best Seafood Restaurant in the Area

We spent an anniversary in Ft. Lauderdale, FL a few year's back and checked out several local establishments for lunch and dinner - not hotel restaurants, but places along the beach and in the general beach area and in the business district. I have to admit that almost everywhere we went was a... read more

This place has such a nice atmosphere and the wait staff is on point. I ordered shrimp and they were so good! This isn't a cheap place so be prepared to pay high prices for some extremely good food. Can't wait till I go back. I heard the stone crab is phenomenal there.

Several visits to Truluck's have proven that it is consistently great. I love the tuna tower, the crispy shrimp and the carrot cake. Portion sizes are big, so beware and come with an appetite. The service and attentiveness at Truluck's is usually top notch. It is an impressive and well run restaurant.

We visited trulucks on our first visit to Ft Lauderdale. Nice surprise after eating on the strip and the water taxi line. Some of the best Lobster Bisque we have had in years. My husband actually ordered a second cup. And the crab claw was worth every penny. We will return every chance we get.

They have absolutely perfected service - the attention to detail is wonderful. From the moment we arrived until we left we were very well taken care of but never felt that they were hovering. Our waiter was Luis and he was great! Extremely attentive and friendly and offered wonderful suggestions. I had the cod which was the best I've had... More

After having enjoyed Trulucks' happy hour on many occasions, I am convinced that it is the best in Fort Lauderdale. The selection of appetizers, the quality of the food, the selection and price of cocktails, and the jazz and ambiance make this place a major winner. The value plus quality are hard to beat. Also, the service is great.

Just ate my last meal at Trulucks, Ft. Lauderdale. This used to be a classy restaurant with high end food well prepared and great service. It still has high end food well prepared and good service, but somebody there decided it needed live entertainment in the adjoining bar with a sound system adequate for a football stadium...as a result, felt...

My partner wanted fresh fish for his 65th birthday celebration so after doing a lot of research on TripAdvisor I decided upon Truluck's. We had a very enjoyable evening with excellent service. He just loved his fish and claimed how fresh tasting and well prepared it was. I'm not a fish lover so I ordered a steak very rare. It... More

Ordered the chicken dinner (maybe I should have gotten seafood..) and it was very dry and was burnt. Only thing I liked about this restuarant was the atmosphere. It's very nice inside and the waiters give great service. But definitely way too overpriced for everything on the menu compared to the actual food you receive. Not recommended.
