“Dinner at Truluck's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

The food was wonderful and our server, Raul, provided exceptional service. We used Open Table to secure a reservation on a busy Saturday night and had no problems getting in.

“Super popular bar/eatery, great wines-by-the-glass selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Very popular eatery, especially on Monday stone-crab night. We ate at the bar, service by bartender was superb: attentive, friendly, and efficient. Impressive selection of wines by the glass --- from a system that dispenses and preserves the wines using inert gas.

“Favorite business lunch spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Trulucks is my favorite lunch spot. The seafood is delicious and service is impeccable. My favorites are the corn chowder, red snapper ponchatrain and deserts not to be missed! Its perfect for a business lunch or special occassion. I absolutely recommend it.

“Dependable, noisy, tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Trulucks can be found in more than one city, but it fortunately doesn't give you the impression of any type of chain restaurant. Quality of fish always seems fresh, well presented and professionally served. The wait staff seems very worthy of the starchy white shirts evidenced by their knowledge, timeliness and attention to detail. Try the crab cakes (little to no filler) for a real treat.

“Never disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Fantastic restaurant, as always. It is difficult to pass up the crab cakes... (hamburger patty size, either appetizer or dinner offering) and oh, so yummy. The real deal.... CRAB. Fantastic homemade tartar sauce..... order extra. The scallops are another delictable offering. Yes, the stone crabs are good and difficult to find elsewhere, but for me no big deal... (just me, tho). A little disappointed in the quality of the mid-priced wine offerings. They make no big deal of offering several bottles in the $500 and up range, but difficult choosings in the under $100 category.
Always a great place to go on special occassions though and they take RESERVATIONS!
