This restaurant just has it all. Great food, great service and a great atmosphere. The wine list is wonderful and the food selection is great. The shrimp cocktail is just a treat. Thanks for treating my small group so well.

As Maryland residents we are picky when it comes to seafood. We never get crab cakes anywhere outside MD but are always looking for seafood. Truluck's seriously delivered on fresh seafood. Starting with the Ahi Tuna Tower to the Sea Bass and Ahi Tuna all were perfection. The only minor issue was the rice that came with the Sea Bass... More

Lobster bisque was out of this world good! Steak cooked to perfection with a crisp seared edge. Awesome! Service was 10++++++. Highly recommended.

Went for an anniversary dinner and wanted a downtown location. Reasonable valet parking in an area were public parking can be scarce. Went early for happy hour prices and the bar is neat. Dinner server was outstanding, food was excellent and surroundings elegant with a great view of downtown. Not cheap,but commensurate with the quality offered. Recommend it highly.

Both locations serve excellent food, but the downtown location is much larger & more upscale. The bar is downstairs & separate from the upstairs restaurant minimizing the noise. Great view. Seafood selection is excellent & very fresh.

From the moment we walked in, greeted by the host as if we were long time friends, we felt right at home and pampered to the max. Food was amazing, impressive wine list, our out of town guests were impressed and everyone was very satisfied. Best steaks and seafood in town! Unparalleled service, to boot. A1 experience.

Truluck''s is a great place to head for happy hour OR dinner. The food is fantastic and the service is very good. Try the crunchy citrus shrimp and the calamari at happy hour, and any special entree at dinner - it's ALL good!

We celebrated our 51st Anniversary with the folks at Truluck's. We could not have been treated any better. They were kind, punctual, considerate and so gracious. Our meals were the best we have had in a long time and they were served to perfection. We think they are the best place to celebrate or just have an absolutely wonderful meal... More
