    Overall Great Meal and Service was top notch. Only real issue was Seafood Platter for 4 was disappointing and not up to par. Crab Legs were cracked in a way that the shell was in tiny little pieces that you had to keep picking out of your mouth which made them very difficult to eat and Oysters were not very fresh and definitely had an "off taste". Entree's and desserts were delicious.

    Drinks were only ok. Bar app was good. Food at diner was only ok. Better at home. Sorry--wanted it to be great, but it wasn't. And the price was what you would expect if it was outstanding.

    We enjoyed our experience in the bar, got seated at our table promptly. Loved our waiter and the ambiance but the food was too pricey for what we ordered. We could have easily made better food at home. That is the only negative of TruLucks in my opinion.

    Had the Alaskan King Crab legs which are always delicious - so sweet-and so easy to get out of the legs because they slice them down the center. My husband had the Cioppino and said it was by far the best he'd ever had. So much seafood in it for the price too! Would've ordered a Moscow Mule but they don't have copper mugs so I opted for another drink. I was disappointed that such a fine dining establishment who actually had it on their menu, did not have copper mugs! For anyone who drinks them, it really does make the drink because it keeps it so cold!

    My companion had the Jalapeño Salmon Béarnaise served with parmesan mashed potatoes and topped with blue crab, shrimp and béarnaise sauce. I had the Pan-Seared New England Sea Scallops with crab and tomato salad, Szechuan green beans and sweet tomato butter. I also added a side of balsamic-glazed portabellos. The salmon and scallops were tender, moist and flavorful. The mushrooms were delicious. The surprise hit of the meal was my Szechuan green beans. They were lightly steamed but still crisp with a very flavorful sauce that had a little kick to it. They were topped with shaved almonds. Truluck's is a nice space with excellent food and service. The bar seemed to be hopping with a live piano man providing the music. Highly recommended.

    Truluck's is always a reliable and fantastic place to satisfy that steak and seafood craving. Excellent, friendly wait staff, very attentive. This place has a great menu and wine list. Food is always great and a manager is onsite at all times to assure your satisfaction. I even got a call the next day to make sure my experience was up to expectations.

    My wife and I have began a tradition of dining at Truluck's on our wedding anniversary. Our first year was last year and we repeated this year. Truluck's is a very fine restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. The atmosphere is what you want it to be. The dining area can be a private or group setting and the bar area is just as enjoyable. I would recommend Truluck's and it is at the top of my dining list.

    Went to the South Lake location for the first time. Service was excellent, from the hostess greeting us to when we left. Food was excellent as always -- had the South African lobster. Waiter was attentive without being intrusive. He had a large table nearby to tend to, but did not neglect us. The manager came over to "meet and greet" as well.

    We loved it! It was our first time and everything was wonderful. I had the halibut which was perfect and my husband had the pork chops which was a perfect surprise at a fish house. Also, great salads and the ahi tower and the goat cheese starters are the best thing on the menu!!! They could just serve those two only and stay in business forever! I wish we had this in Oklahoma City.

    If you are looking for a restaurant that has "GREAT" service, "OUTSTANDING" steaks and seafood, then look no further than Truluck's. I had seen the restaurant in Southlake but had never been in, then a friend of mine told me about his visit and I had to go. Made a reservation for my wife's birthday and now Im hooked. Everything about Trulucks' is about you from the minute you walk in to the time you leave. The finest service I have ever received, the best surf and turf I have ever had. You can't get it any better than at Truluck's.

    We have dined at Truluck's before and this visit was probably the best overall dining experience we've ever had here. Our meals were expertly prepared and especially tasty. Having shared a cold seafood platter appetizer followed by salads, we couldn't finish our entrees and still have room for dessert. We were celebrating my wife's birthday (which I had noted when making our reservation) and all of the staff was very attentive to us. Truluck's presented a wonderful birthday dessert, compliments of the house. Our server, Marissa, was great and added a lot of fun to our evening.

    No reason to drone on and on: This is an excellent restaurant; the food is perfect; the desserts are too large; and our server was extraordinary. Prices are a bit "rich", but justified. (There are plenty of ordinary restaurants from which to choose if money IS an object.)

    I've heard a lot about this restaurant, but I have no idea why. The food was terrible (what you would expect from a suburban chain restaurant) and the bill for four of us was close to $500. If I'm going to spend that kind of money, it better be worth it, and this was far from it. If you want a four-star meal, go somewhere else.

    We have been frequenting Trulucks for 3 years now. Any time we are in the Dallas area, it is one of our absolute favorite places to go. The staff are attentive and very personable, the ambiance is wonderful as it envelopes you into believing you're the only ones there (ask for a booth), and the food; the most important reason for going, is always consistently well prepared, presented and gastronomically pleasing. We have never had a bad experience in any of these areas.

    This is can't miss dining at its finest. Each plate, each appetizer, each dessert are masterfully done. If you're ever in the area, reward yourself and your companion by going - and by all means, listen carefully to the chef specials for an extra treat. My spouse, who is not overly fond of seafood, particularly enjoyed the seafood combo cooked in sirracha on top of her filet.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    We've been coming to Truluck's here in Southlake ever since they opened. Through the years we've had mostly good experiences with a couple very bad experiences. I must say that this past visit was the best. We were off for college drop-off for our kids the next day and wanted to celebrate the upcoming school year with a nice dinner before they left. Everything was impeccable. Service was outstanding, management came to check on us multiple times, the food was great (both seafood and beef). There are few times when you pay $$$$ for a dinner and walk away saying that was truly worth it, but for this last visit is really was. Nicely done.
