Bangin, 10/10 would recommend. Best calamari I've ever had in my life. Wine list was phenomenal. My mouth is watering now just remembering how good the food was.

This a regular restaurant for us. This time we felt that they were understaffed making for a longer than usual dining experience. Food was still great though.

I live in Miami and many dozens of Food Venues I have gone to.
But is was my 3rd Anniversary and I wanted to impress my Lady.

I know this is a chain, but don't let that fool you. At this location as soon as you drive up, a nice valet takes your car, you are in a beautiful area, a lounge singer was setting a romantic mood.

Large Leather Circular booths , reminiscent of 1920's greeted us, crisp white table cloth and rose petals in the center (I had noted on the reservation via Open Table this was an Anniversary) and this bit of detail was much appreciated by all 4 of us.

Pre-Drinks from Martini to Whiskey Sours and Cucumber Martin's were delicious.
The Bread is soft as heaven sourdough bread with melted butter, so good we ordered a 2nd.

Appetizer, was the best and most meaty crab cake I ever had. Highly recommend this. Salads were light and delicious.

Entree's, the men the NY Strip (50$) and the ladies Group (40) and Surf and Turf (53) were well worth the price. High Quality Steaks with a sauce, delicious and plentiful meat. The lobster, I thought was small but it was the most tender I ever had. The Filet was soft and delicate, she loved it.

Wine Selections go from 48$ to 500$ and each region and varietal represented nicely. We enjoyed a Super Tuscan and a Rioja Riserva. Both delicious and 68 and 72$ respective.

Trulucks is known for its seafood and they bring a tray of the Stone Crabs in various size and Crag legs the same (2lbs for 70) but I saw that night the largest Alaskan King Crab Leg ever, 2" around and 16", it was huge !!!

All told, 527$ for 4, so 130 a person.

Now trust me when I say this it was worth it many times over. The Ambience was truly dark and Sultry, the Leather Circular booths made you feel like a king and the Service was amazing.

This was a night we will always look back on with fondness !!!

We celebrated our anniversary at your restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale (in fact, we also celebrated in 2018). Each year we ordered lobster as our main entree. Year 2018 was excellent, 2019 not that good. The lobster was not firm, and lacked taste. The creamed spinach was burnt on the bottom of the dish. We ordered Key Lime Pie for dessert, we were served cheese cake instead, we asked the server if it was Key Lime Pie and she said yes, although it was not. The meal was very pricy, we expected quality and did not get it, disappointing. Will not be celebrating future occasions at Ft. Lauderdale’s Turlock. Another issue, when we checked in we told the hostess we will be at the bar (this was a Monday night, not crowded) our driver came in to find us to give us our IPhone, he asked the hostess to find us, she was unable to locate us (we were at the bar, we told her that we would be there when we checked in!). Our driver found us, not much help from the hostess and the people checking in guests!

My husband and I took my mother to celebrate her birthday with all-you-can-eat stone crabs and it was great. All of the food was delicious, our waitress made everything extra special, we just had the most lovely time.

I went to Trulucks with someone who wanted to eat stone crabs. I do not eat anything from the sea. I have not eaten a steak in years. I had the filet which was cooked perfectly. The Kung Pao califlower was delicious as was the brussel sprouts. The drinks were fantastic. Service was attentive. I did not expect to enjoy the restaurant as much as I did. A great surprise.

Gerat place for a special dinner. It was our anniversary and we wanted to have dinner at a very special place. Truluck's delivered and everything from the beginning to the end was very delicious. We enjoyed the lobster bisque, crab cakes and the new york strip. They made the evening very special with baked Alaska.

This is our favorite restaurant because the food is consistently excellent. However we had stopped going for a while because it was very cold inside the restaurant which hampered our enjoyment of the excellent food. We decided to try again and were not disappointed because it was not as cold inside the restaurant as on several previous occasions. The chocolate bag is an excellent dessert to share with the table. We hope they continue to keep the air inside the restaurant cool but not freezing.

Very vibrant and fast pace during the time we went. The food was delicious. Very pricey. My guest has a disability and moves very slowly. Team seating accommodations were perfect, including service dog. I had the sea bass and it was delicious!

Have eaten at Trulucks at Boca and Naples for years. This was our anniversary dinner and we were so looking forward to an excellent meal but was greatly disappointed. The sea bass was overcooked, our friend scallops wer average and the presentation was poor, the creamed spinach was more like spinach au gratin and the hash browns was a pile of grease. We ordered cappuccinos and an expresso and they had to be sent back because it was cold and the second go-round was lukewarm. Our waiter was excellent he made the night. We did not get $500 worth of good food. Reluctant to ever go back

The vegetables we ordered were not served with the entrees. We waited about 7 minutes before they were brought to the table. The waiter apologized and those charges were removed from the bill.

Our family always enjoy dinning at this Truluck's, especially during the start of the crap claw season. Although, on 11-21-19 (Monday), due to a large special event , our food order took almost two hours to arrive. We were a party of six and to start, we ordered a nice bottle of wine and additional drinks and appetizers. We ordered ribeye, seabass, the special whole snapper along with three orders of all you can eat claws. The crabs were mostly small on all the three orders placed. The whole snapper special, was not visually appealing as it looked like it was over baked/dry and lacked seasoning. We did order three desserts and they were delicious as always, of course, three hours later. I don't believe, we will be visiting on Monday nights, for the crab claw special. We will stick to making reservations on other nights. Next time, I will definitely ask, if there's a large group event on the day we are to dine.
I ASK: If you know you are having a large group, don't you compensate by adding MORE SERVERS and COOKS?

This was out first time dining at Trulucks, totally exceeded our expectations. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and everyone who came into contact with us wished him a happy birthday. Top notch customer service and food. We split a crab cake and the celebration seafood platter. Amazingly fresh and delicious! We will definitely be returning, thank you for a memorable experience!

The service was good. Food was okay. The Alaskan crab was served without a butter warmer, so both crab and butter got cold before we could finish. This site isn't as good as the Mizner Park one was.
