From the time you pull up to valet parking until you leave the service is top notch. The shrimp cocktail is wonderful with 5 huge shrimp and very tasty cocktail sauce. The best carrot cake I've ever tasted and large enough to share.

Excellent seafood flown in daily by restaurant offering a variety of oysters, fresh crab legs, and other delicious fish normally only found by the sea.

We went here for Valentines Day. Started the night with a glass of wine. Very relaxing and cozy.The food was Delicious. I had the Redfish Pontchartrain. I'll try that again when we go back! Cindy was our server. She was very personable and made great recommendations like trying the King Crab mac and cheese. Excellent place for that Special dinner!

This is a short review, not one of my better choices. Steak was average as was the side dishes. If you are in Dallas there are so many better places to chow down the cow and moo on the way out with a very satisfied feeling.

Ive never thought Truluck's was amazing, but it is good and has a nice atmosphere. The staff are always accommodating and they have a great wine list.

Everything was beautiful and the service excellent. The problem was with the food. I was shocked because although this was first visit here, Truluck's has a very good reputation. I had two lobster tails that had almost no flavor. Almost as if they had been boiled. Tough and rubbery. My companion enjoyed his steak although I found it pretty ordinary.... More

I have eaten at 3 different Truluck's here, and they have ALL been excellent. It is our choice for all special occasions, and also just when we want a great steak or seafood. Truluck's is... More

If you like blue shell crab, this may be the spot for you. Truluck has excellent crab cakes and the steak and lobster is pretty good also. Great atmosphere and service.
