Lots if seafood, great steak

Our entire group enjoyed their experience, and all five different meals were prepared well. Get a reservation, and parking was limited so consider a cab.

My most recent visit to Dallas was business as usual, until we found Truluck's. The entire experience was so completely satisfying, from the valet to the hostess, the knowledgable wait staff, the professional and conscientious general manager and, of course, the delicious meal. We ordered and shared the chilled crab appetizer, lobster, warm king crab, and steak for dinner (the... More

We had a great experience here for my husband's birthday. The food was excellent and the service was great. Definitely make reservations. I don't eat seafood, but the steak was awesome. My husband really enjoyed his dinner (some sort of seafood - sorry!).

Romantic Dinner with the wife and Truluck's didn't disappoint. Our server Luis was outstanding and went the extra mile. They have a great wine and drink selection and the seafood is very fresh. Save room for dessert as they are amazing! We ordered the Carrot Cake and Chocolate Cake and it was enough for a dozen people. Top Notch! They... More

Truck's is a great lunch spot. The Seafood Salad is my go to but the buffalo chicken has the best presentation and a great choice for those that are looking for non seafood.The new building will open soon and should be a nice upgrade at the same location. Service is always first rate.

There was a surf and turf with this crab shrimp topping that was a little spicy but awesome! Definitely plan on going back.

My wife and I went to Truluck's back in '05. It was good enough to return. I am a 'non-working' chef with a culinary degree from Paris France ("La Varrenne") so I am very conservative with food ratings. I am also a foodie and not so wrapped up in the atmosphere vs ambiance debate. Truluck's does a good job. The... More

The service here is spotty sometimes and they obviously haven't been investing in keeping the location top-notch because they're building a new two-story model in the parking lot. But the stone crab is great. I recommen Jacks' sack for dessert.
