I enjoyed very fresh oysters, clam cocktail, and lobster bisque as an appetizer dinner with a great glass of cabernet wine. The service was great and the live music was very entertaining. I would recommend this restaurant highly. They had a great happy hour with discounted beverages and appetizers which were amazing.

This is a great place that maybe tries too hard...there is a floating maitre d' that introduces herself and then disappears..not quite sure what her roll was meant to accomplish...sometimes overly gracious waiters...if they just toned it down a bit and rely on their good food it would make for a more relaxing dinner experience.

we had the worst service we have ever had at a nice restaurant. Our server was condescending, insulting and couldn't remember anything that we asked him to do. Had it not been Easter we probably would have gotten up and left. The food was good, stone crab was delicious and Cesar salad was great so the problem was not the... More

I have been to this location twice. Once to celebrate my mothers 60th Birthday. The food was excellent and the service was also very good. The atmosphere is very romantic and I highly recommend this for a "date night" and its very close to the beach if you would like to take stroll on the beach afterwards.

Truly a great place. The decor, the live music, the bar, the service and food were all top notch. Highly recommend this to anyone. The food is always great and for an expensive restaurant, their wine list is quite reasonable.

We walked into several other restaurants around Truluck's and walked out because the staff was unfriendly or the atmosphere didn't seem right. But when we walked into Truluck's we were greeted with the sound of live music, laughter and friendly staff, so we stayed. The menu is limited and it's quite pricey, but we were on vacation! We shared a... More

Dined during midweek so no crowd. The crabcakes and sauce were excellent, cooked to perfection. The Caesar Salad dressing was wonderful , well balance in flavors, not overpowering as is often the case. The steak was cooked to order on first try. The restaurant was clean ,,including restrooms. The service was attentive and timely. There was an unruly customer who... More

Our first time at Truluck's was a mixed experience. We were initially impressed at the attentive service and the handsome decor of the place. Chilled water from a refrigerator was a great touch for South Florida! We both liked the padding under the tablecloth. It added a classy sensory experience. There was most definitely a unpleasant corporate vibe to the... More

this place sucks, the food was not good and the staff was crazy rude. I had a reservation weeks in advance, but when I hit there I had to wait 30 min for a table, then they sat us at a dirty table and we had to wait an additional 20 min to get it cleaned and and to get... More
