I chose Trulucks to be our Wedding Anniversary Lunch venue. This was our first visit to Trulucks but I can vouche that we will visit Trulucks again. We were bowled over by its sophistication, hospitality, ambience and above all good food. We had fried calamari and crab cakes for appetizers. Calamiri was really tasty and crab cake was to die...

While the first visit was exceptional, the second visit was flawless. On both occasions, the first for an intimate party of three, the second for a milestone birthday dinner, every nuance of 'the fine dining experience' was exactly the way one would expect it to be. From the reception at the door to the last sip of perfect coffee, every... More

I love this place especially after they knocked down the old building and went to the new one. I come here every other month. This time, came for an event and had to try the Chowder.. Its very well priced menu items also are fun for any occasion.

Gastronomic experience!! Seafood so fresh, excellently paired with a plethora of flavors that create a sensational experience in your mouth. I had the crab stuff lobster, it was so tender and succulent. My husband had the MISO glazed sea bass served on an incredible bed of crab fried rice. For starters we had crab cakes! We will be back.

I went to other Trulucks in Texas before and this is the worst one so far. Server never decided to come check my table. Food was just decent. I wouldn't pay their price for just decent seafood.

They have been totally remodeled and the 2nd floor dining has a nice view of part of Dallas. The staff is friendly tending to all your needs. I... More
