“Great Values During Happy Hour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Not only is Truluck's a great restaurant for a seafood or steak dinner, but it's a fantastic place to visit during Happy Hour. Happy Hour is every day from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm with half-price cocktails and bar appetizers. Food items include a salmon burger with fries, a jumbo lump crab cake that is full of crab with very little filling (one of our favorite items), hot n' crunchy shrimp (four, fried butterflied shrimp with sauces), a pound of sauteed mussels, and a shrimp cocktail with five jumbo shrimp. They also offer a ceviche, calamari, and mini bacon cheesburgers. All of the food items are in the $6-$9 range, and the featured cocktails, martinis, and glasses of wine are in the $6-$7 range. At prices like these it's easy to sample multiple items and make a dinner out of it. And although it's not on the happy hour menu, the carrot cake is one of the best we've ever had...large and moist with a great cream cheese icing. The bar has a nice atmosphere with ample seating at the bar/tables/banquettes and live music with a piano player that adds a nice touch. To top things off they have great service too!

“Heavenly food, wonderful service & atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We made a short-notice reservation for a party of 7 on a weekday and had a late dinner at the Trulucks. The menu offers a vast choice. After seeing some of the seefood on offer and following a recommendation, several of us opted for the steak and crab on a spicy sauce. Steak was cooked to perfection and menu was strictly delicious & definitely one of the best ever!
Some people had complained about the slow service, which we as Europeans didn't perceive as such at all. Service was prompt, friendly & attentive. We were left with enough but not too much time between starter & main dish and could enjoy the atmosphere.
Unfortunately we didn't manage to save room for a dessert ... a true pity when seeing what was on offer! The Trulucks is definitely a wonderful place to visit in Houston!

“Hard Choice: Fresh Seafood or Fantastic Steaks !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Truluck's is located across the road from The Galleria. I went there without any recommendations and without reservation. It was a lunchtime. The place was almost full with businesspeople, but the table was found for me. There is a fresh seafood display right at the door, as you enter the restaurant. It looks so inviting !!!. The interior is nice, elegant and the overall atmosphere is an upscale one. Very professional waiters know how to help you with your order and could pair wines to your meal also very professionally. After that tasty lunch I have returned to the restaurant on a few occasions, with my family and with my friends. Every time the quality of food and service was really first class.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Great service and even better food. Had the steak and crab and was not disappointed. Managed to save room for a few bites of dessert: the carrot cake and chocolate cake were to die for.

“Good, not Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

TruLucks is a very popular restaurant in the Galleria area that is the personal favorite of multiple family friends. Our last visit was good, but not great. It was better than 3 stars, but not 4 stars relative to other similar restaurants. For a restaurant focused on seafood, felt that the offerings we had could have been more fresh in taste.
