Wonderful, beautiful, elegant, special!
Their efforts to make this a safe meal in light of the pandemic was outstanding. The food and service was great as always.
It was fine.
Felt like a chain.
Unlikely to recommend or return.
Lots of other choices.
Food was great. Service was a bit slow but understandable due to the holiday crowd. The music was a bit too loud.
One of the best "occasion" restaurants. Service is over-the-top detail-oriented, and the food is prepared impeccably. Worth every penny.
Great way to spend thanksgiving and our anniversary. The food was delicious as usual. We loved it!
We went there Thanksgiving Day and had their special for the holiday. Everything was perfect, and the price for their special feast was reasonable. Was served way too much food (!), and took up enough for another meal.
Great service and food. Drinks amazing.
Truluck's is always our "Go To" restaurant for special occasions! You will always receive the best of everything!
Always a great experience at Trulucks. Its our go to place for special occasions.
Excellent food and top notch service. Best I have had in a long time.
Food and Service was great. Had to ask to turn down the music level--too loud; couldn't hear people across the table. Overpriced food.
Small pours on wine, date’s filet was tiny.
We love the live singer/piano player. She has a beautiful voice!
It was absolutely fabulous!
That will be the last time we eat at Trulucks. Far overpriced for the quality of food. It was not that great. The waitress was great but all four of us agree that the food was not better than Red Lobster. Very disappointed in losing $460.00. Crazy!
For the ultimate seafood experience pure freshness and the highest quality.
Great seafood, Stone Crab claws are Great, service excellent.
The front room was too bright and too cold. Moved to the middle room and it was perfect. Thank you.
Great place for a great time. I am looking forward to my next visit
amazing restaurant! staff is friendly .service is excellent! everthing we ate was very fresh n hot . not to mention extremely good! went for Anniversary! my wife’s favorite place!
Their service was exceptional and the food was exquisite.
Hands down the best restaurant in town! Can't wait for Happy Hour to come back!
We went to celebrate my friend’s birthday. I requested and was given a booth in the bar. They were so nice to put celebratory confetti on the table. They also surprised her with the most amazing baked Alaskan dessert. We had wonderful service from the time we walked in. I felt very safe, COVID-19-wise too. The food was great, and it was really nice to get back into a restaurant.
The food at Truluck’s is always delicious. The prices are high, but service is good and it’s quiet enough to carry on a normal conversation.
I always enjoy Trulucks. This time was no different!
we have eaten at Trulux several times. the food and service has always been outstanding. we were very happy with the meal on sat night. the lobster was perfectly prepared as was the ribeye. the lady that was singing was also very good. we will be going back for more crab claws as well. highly recommend this restaurant.
It was a great experience, I will definitely go back!
I love Trulucks and the live music!!
This is our second visit to Truluck's. We went last anniversary and were not disappointed.
We went again on this anniversary and were not disappointed. Both dining experiences were excellent. I cannot think of anything else that could have been done to make our special evening any better.
Leo was our server and we never had to ask for anything as he seemed to read our minds and appeared at our table when we needed something.
Love the place. A little pricey but worth it on special occasions. They as other are hurt by pandemic, but do a great job
The seafood at Truluck’s is so fresh and well prepared! We had the Crab Dip and the Crab and Shrimp Neopolitan for appetizers. Both delicious and unique. To follow all that, Caesar Salad with Salmon and a cup of delicious Lobster Bisque completed the meal. We love the elegant decor and friendly staff! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Great bar tender ./ food was good little bland and dry on the fish could use more spice
Another amazing dining experience! Till next month (since we drive an hour one way)!
EXCELLENT JUST PERFECT
Quickly becoming a favorite neighborhood stop. Love the table top area with music. Service is superb without being intrusive. Highly recommend for a nice dinner with drinks. Personally made 4 visits in the last month!
The seabass.......omygoodness! I wanted to marry. We celebrated a wonderful birthday. Great wine, seafood and ambiance. The singer/piano player was amazing. Yeah! We had a blast.
This was the first time that we dined here but it definitely won't be our last. I truly enjoyed the experience and the food was excellent.
Went out to dinner with my husband, both in our early 30s if that matters, hostess immediately asks my husband to remove his hat (Columbia hat, nothing offensive) we scan the dining room and there are several people wearing hats. He removed it without a peep. Our server was great, the manager was friendly in his rounds. We ordered two appetizers, crab cake and meatballs. Both delicious. Ordered two salads, wedge and caesar. I had the caesar, it was great, husband had the wedge, it was overpriced and lackluster. Two sliced cherry tomatoes, a spoonful of bacon bits. Normally this wouldn’t be an issue, we know we’re paying for the atmosphere but we were turned off by having been immediately insulted on a simple wardrobe staple. The bottle of wine we shared helped. Ordered stone crab claw platter, South African lobster tail, and wagyu osso buco. Stone crab claws were great, the lobster was completely uncooked, and the osso buco was a clear miss. It was almost as if someone accidentally ordered meat and the chef just slapped together the dish the best they could. But, our dogs loved it. Our server was fantastic. Never mentioned any of this to him, why be an annoyance, but he noticed the uncooked lobster and had the manager comp it. We ordered a slice of chocolate cake to salvage the evening. At an establishment that we’re comfortable spending a ridiculous amount of money on a very good meal, you should be providing your staff with matching face masks, my husband should be able to wear a pheasant on his head if he chooses, and at the very least, you should be selling cooked and delicious food.
Loved the bar area and entertainment. Drinks and service was great.
Calamari appetizer was kinda soggy and NY Strip was tough to the point that it was even difficult to cut. Sides were okay but seemed like smaller portions than I remember from past visits. Just really didn’t seem to be the quality I’d expect for the price or what I remember from previous visits.
