Crab cakes and lychee martinis are amazing. I went for happy hour because the dinner menu can be a little bit expensive. Great atmosphere for happy hour also. There is also someone there playing the piano.

I live in Fort Lauderdale and visit Truluck's on a regular basis. The food is always great and as many here have mentioned their specialty is seafood. The place is a bit dark inside yet you can seat outside if the weather is nice. Very friendly and attentive, efficient staff. A bit on the expensive side but worth it.

When asked for the best seafood in Lauderdale, hands down Truluck's was mentioned every time. Therefore, we made a reservation and commenced on a journey of fine foods (seafood and otherwise) - from the appetizers (the Tuna Tartare and Beef Tartare were out of this world), to the lobster tails, fresh catch of the day and even the prime beef....

We just stopped after shopping and got a table. Early evening and it got a lot busier during our dinner. Service was good, oysters amazing, fish good and we never had dessert because the potions are huge. It’s not a place for cheap dining, but it was worth it since the food and service was superb. got

This restaurant is large and to our surprise was almost empty at 8.30pm on a weekday. They had an OK singer /pianist and the decor is nice, our server was VERY attentive and we enjoyed the food with my wife opting for fish and me for surf n turf. We had a couple of bottles of decent wine and a... More

No. Nonononono...NO. This simply cannot be regarded as one of Ft. Lauderdale's best restaurants. The good: a bottle of Pascal Jolivet Sancerre for mid-50's is a decent price @ restaurant pricing. Thank heavens for this small miracle. And the bread basket, though far from what I'd consider to be top notch (considering the price point of the restaurant) was fresh... More

I was there for dinner recently with a good friend. I had the Miso Sea Bass, and the wedge salad, and he has a ceaser and the Salmon Sardou, and both were fantastic. Try also a bottle of the Lagaria Pinto Grigio as it was great, nice and cold with a side of asparagus. Great dinner and the service was... More
