Celebrated three (my Mom and two daughters) birthdays. Such a classy restaurant without a stuffy feeling. The food is consistently excellent. Service is spot on. Seven at our table in all, a big round table perfectly suited us. Had drinks in the bar after our wonderful dinner. Listened to Hank on the piano! We could have listened to him play... More

We had a small business meal here on 8/20/2014. The food and service was excellent! We had the chilled seafood for a starter, and it was really great, particularly the presentation. My meal was the special 8 oz fillet mignon and a giant 8 oz praun. Too much food! But, I managed to eat some of the carrot cake the... More

Hubby and I visited for a special event happening in our lives, and Truluck's did not disappoint. We went on a Monday night, which I think added the extra TLC we received due to not being as busy as a weekend night. They gave us their most "romantic" table and continued to cater to our beck and call for the... More

A very large, bustling restaurant, catering to couples and large groups. Noisy but not overpowering. Portions are large and the food is quite good. Heavy emphasis on seafood and beef as one might expect from the name. I had oysters and a nice piece of broiled fish, my companion had an excellent steak. Would definitely return on another visit to... More

I am a big fan of Joe's Stone Crabs in Miami, FL. That's where I go several times a year for my Stone fix since 2005. So- I know stone crabs, we greet on first name basis. However... Everyone had been telling me to go to Trulucks for claws, that they are just as good. It took me awhile, but... More

This Houston staple is absolutely great. We had the filet special with shrimp on top.. Great choice. Not cheap but worth the cost.

I have been to Trulucks many times and have never been disappointed. We recently visited as a double birthday celebration and all of our party had a delicious meal and wonderful experience. the seafood is always cooked to perfection and the staff are always attentive without being overbearing.

This has been one of, if not my favorite restaurant for years, so shame on me for not doing this sooner. They have in my opinion, two things that are the best I've ever had. The crab cake and carrot cake are out of this world and maybe the best ever. I have only had seafood, but every seafood dish... More

First we found Truluck's a very nice place for a special occasion. Staff and management were very friendly and knowledgable, Cocktails (martinis) were very good as were the chilled oysters. The manager was very helpful with wine selection. Dinner: We both had the stone crabs which were outstanding and their mustard sauce was exceptionally tasty. Dinner came with spiced mashed... More
