Truluck's - Ocean's Finest Seafood & Crab - Houston
The food and service were outstanding. We were celebrating Valentine's Day at 2 PM. This was special. I also appreciated that the menu was the typical menu. We did not feel the prices were escalated for Valentine's Day.
Standing lunch date with my daughter on valentines for 20 years. Always great. Don’t know what we’ll do if they ever close.
Awesome restaurant... only concern that I had was that I did not hang up my coat before sitting down and I had it comfortably on my chair and the server kept running into my chair and coat throughout the meal as we were dining.... he was in a hurry to get around our table and serve other guests, I suppose.
We are HUGE fans of Commander's Palace and Brennan's in New Orleans and had high expectations going in. Those expectations were exceeded! The space is BEAUTIFUL. The food is PERFECTION. And service is IMPECCABLE!!!
Our meal began with a lagniappe of DELICIOUS shrimp remoulade and the most flavorful garlic bread. And of course a 25 cent Martini! It was suggested to us by Thomas, our SPECTACULAR server, that we order the Gulf Fish Borgne which is the signature dish and features Jumbo Lump Crab, J&J Shrimp, Louisiana Oysters, Parmesan Mushroom Rice, and Brennan's Creole Butter. We also got the Creole Cobb which had Wood-Grilled Texas Shrimp, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Brioche Croutons, Grape Tomatoes, Maytag Blue Cheese, and Cayenne Avocado Dressing. The dressing was the best we have ever had on a Cobb and the shrimp were moist and flavorful. And since it was crawfish season, Thomas suggested a side and it was divine!
But the highlight of the lunch was Thomas. As he seated us, he asked where we were from. When we told him "Los Angeles" he asked how we were all doing in LA with the loss of Kobe Bryant. As a third generation Los Angeleno, the heartfelt sincerity of his question brought tears to my eyes. We felt we were at home as we reminisced about what Kobe meant to his fans and Thomas shared his own stories.
And that is the gift of the Brennan restaurants. They feel like the best your home could be because of the care that goes into EVERYTHING!
Iconic restaurant. Service has become far less crisp and attentive.
As always great food and great service. The consistency of Brennan's is incredible. Their is never a doubt from the time you enter that it is going to be a great experience.
our waiter was not good. got drink orders wrong, took too long to receive drinks.
Excellent as usual.
As always, the food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. We love going to Brennan's to celebrate special occasions. My husband and I have been going to Brennan's for 25 years. It is the perfect restaurant to celebrate any special occasion. Sunday brunch was great. The musicians came by our table and sang a song for my husband's birthday. Thank you
the brunch entree could have been better. The ham on the benedict was too thick, and the Brennan benedict was not to my liking. In the past when I have had this meal, there were more selections.
Every thing about the food and service in the restaurant was FANTASTIC! We were downtown to attend the theater and it is very helpful that Brennan's offers a shuttle to and from the theater which worked out perfectly. The problem was getting vehicles after the 2 shuttles dropped all the guests off. There was not an organized system for taking the guests valet ticket and it was a lengthy wait in the cold for the cars! It would seem there could be a much more organized and efficient system developed to have guests on the shuttles vehicles staged for quicker delivery to those guests.
Why would you want to go anywhere else?
Very simple brunch for two; the grand seafood tower and some brandy milk punches. Simply wonderful,
Absolutely amazing experience every time!
Excellent classic creole cuisine, fresh seafood, attentive service. Select a table out of the way for the best experience.
The first time we went, the food was amazing and very flavorful. This time, the food was so bland I had to keep adding salt and hot sauce just to add flavor. It was pretty disappointing, especially for the very high price.
Amazing food and excellent service!
It’s Brennan’s. Never had any complaints. But this night my wife’s steak was poorly done. Overcooked a medium rare. The 2nd one was only medium rare in the middle. Maybe just an off night for them.
Hostess was outstanding.
Brennan’s just continues to do it right in all categories. Service, food, ambiance. Amazing! I just love this place!
Wonderful anniversary dinner!
Always great service and food!!
Top-notch service and food as becomes this Houston institution. While not cheap, it is a classic dining experience. A special place for special occasions or just for the incredible food and service.
Excellent in every way
Our evening was delightful. The food is wonderful and service excellent.
Outstanding food and service in a gorgeous environment. Brennan’s never disappoints.
Wonderful experience once again. Excellent venue for a closing dinner.
Our last experience here was a complete and utter disaster. However, this time around, it was much better. The service, food, and overall experience was great.
The service is always exceptional. Our waiter was consistently checking on us and made great recommendations. For example, we were disappointed of the cold beignets served for dessert, but convinced us for the Mississippi Mud Pie as an alternative . Also, we wanted to note that the busgirl Candy was very nice and consistently cleared our table for space.
The food was very well cooked, tasty, and seasoned well for our taste. The berry cocktails were great as well. We enjoyed both our rib plate and duck. The strawberry salad tasted fresh and the gumbo was tasty too. Once again, the beignets were cold and undercooked but the waiters mud pie recommendation saved the dessert finale.
Overall we enjoyed our experience and would recommend Brennan’s to people who are looking for a night of elegance with a side of hospitality.
A very nice new experience for my wife and I on our anniversary. We both got steak. I got the dry age ribeye. It was good, albeit a little over-cooked for medium rare (ended up warm pink in the center). The Lemon merengue pie was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it. I also got a fig-infused old-fashioned on the recommendation of the waiter and it was so good that I got another one. Good time and good experience. Don’t forget to order actual sides, as the steak is pretty much served ala carte.
We went to Brennan's for my mom's birthday, and they went all out in making sure that she had a great experience. The table we sat at had been decorated with ribbons and balloons, and the chairs were super comfortable. The entire wait staff that took care of us was outstanding. The food was fantastic. Honestly, we could not have asked for a better experience. And mom is still talking about it four days later. Thank you Brennan's for making my mom feel like a queen on her birthday. We hope to be back soon!
I wish it were a little quieter and better valet system but overall ok.
Always outstanding, always great service, always delicious food. Can't say enough about why I love Brennan's of Houston.
Always a favorite of ours. We like the convenience of taking the bus to Hobby Center and Jones Hall.
My fiancé and I had the pleasure of having the duo, Greg and Marcus as our waiters and both were pleasant. Greg was very informative about the meals that were listed on the menu. Marcus was entertaining and I don’t think that he noticed that he was because he was just the person that assisted with placing our meals on the table but he was talkative which always helps a great visit wherever you go. Thank you guys for your great customer service and we hope to be back again!
The food and especially the service were outstanding
Never disappoints. All dishes were prepared expertly. A small request to modify our rice without cheese resulted in one of the best rice dishes I've ever had. Service was impeccable. Couldn't ask for more.
Consistently the best food available in Houston, which is saying a whole lot.
I was there for the incomparable Turtle Soup! A meal in itself. Always wonderful ambience. A kids bday party made it a little louder than usual this time.
Fantastic!! Great New Years place.
