Excellent meal from stone crabs, scallops, branzino, rib eye & an unreal flamed chocolate and ice cream dessert that was delicious.

Great service & great food. I’ll be returning soon.

Our Anniversary Dinner was amazing
Everything we expected and more
The waitstaff was on point and the Manager Cary Grider made us feel extra special! We even meet a older couple who told us about a play at The George. We did attend and surprised with free tickets!

TruLucks is always our go to but for special occasions they make us feel extra special

We have spent a previous anniversary at Truluck's before which was also extremely very nice. Will continue to go & recommend anyone. Enjoyed the live jazz afterwards which is also always extremely nice.

The food was delicious, Tracy was amazing, kind and personable helping us through dinner! The soft jazz/calm music in the background was so great. The venue is beautiful, parking was available with no issues in the lot. Me and boyfriend enjoyed out date very much. The crab claws were good too! We definitely will be back especially because of their kindness even though we were running late.

The food and service are always amazing. Our table was right at the front door, which I didn’t love. But I could have requested something different when I made the reservation. It is a very expensive dining experience, but definitely worthy of a special occasion.

As we have done for the last couple of years, my wife and I came to Truluck’s to celebrate my birthday and enjoy the start of Florida stone crab season/the Monday night stone crab special.

We arrived early for our 7:30 PM reservation, we were seated promptly and put in our wine and stone crab special orders within 10-15 minutes of being seated once our waitress made the time for our table. Shortly after doing so, our waitress quickly came back out (the quickest return to our table from her all night) and informed us they were sold out of the stone crab special as we received our appetizer.

We paid ‘full freight’ for the larger stone crab they did have to avoid making my birthday celebration a bust but the fact that we were not told they were sold out by the hostess stand upon arrival or our waitress before we put in our wine and food order left a very bitter taste in our mouths as repeat customers coming in for a special occasion. Given this, and the subpar service from our waitress (atypical from Truluck’s) and I am not sure we would choose to roll the dice on celebrating a special occasion here going forward.

Our entrees were just ok. My crab leg smelled fishy but the butter sauce corrected that.

We absolutely loved the hot bread, desserts, carrot cake, and baked Alaska.

Paying $22.00 for one 3" crab cake was ridiculously expensive!

Our waitress, Lola (sp?) was fabulous. Give her a raise.

I made our reservation in response to an email from the restaurant touting the beginning of Florida Stone Crab season. Upon arrival we found that they had no Florida Stone Crabs. We had Alaska King Crab legs instead, but we were bitterly disappointed at being deceived in this way. Beginning our evening with a debate about whether to walk out of the restaurant and go elsewhere was a downer for the whole experience. It became a birthday to remember for the wrong reason. Plus, the carpet stinks. It’s time for either new carpet or deep cleaning and disinfecting.

The experience was excellent! From Brandy ensuring that I had the table I wanted, and Herman, the valet who took care of my vehicle, to Norma our server, who served our table in the most courteous and professional manner - the service and food was excellent!
