The prawns with grits at this upscale restaurant are huge! They are about as big as a hand. Also, the crab claws are delicious and the carrot cake is amazing.

I've been several times and found the food outstanding and the service excellent as well. Kind of old school restaurant with a great seafod selection that is very modern. We loved the lobster and the crabcakes among ofther dishes.

Despite my mothers attempts to flip out (she crazy) while enjoying a meal there the wait staff did an awesome job of attending our needs and keeping their distance when couckoo was raising her voice. Needless to say I slipped an extra 10% to the already 20% tip to thank them for their patience!

Excellent food and service, hard to beat.

Truly Unforgettable! – My bride-to-be and I had our rehearsal dinner at Truluck's. The food and service were so spectacular, we went back to celebrate our first anniversary. To our amazement, the second evening at Truluck's was even more magical than the first. The stone crab was simply amazing, the entrees inspired and perfectly cooked, and the wine impeccable. The cherry on top was the service. The hostess, the server and the manager all made us feel like the most important people in the room. We will return to Truluck's every chance we get--anniversaries included.

Excellent food, great staff – Truluck's is by far one of the best restaurants in Austin. The food is consistently great and the staff is always helpful and kind. I would recommend Trulucks to anyone seeking a great meal and a good time.

Absolutely awesome experience - all around – Had a fabulous experience from the time we walked in the door. Our waitress, Erika W, was awesome! She assisted with selection of champagne and wine (based on what we usually drink), was very curtious, attentive, helpful, and fun. The food was delicious (crab, lobster and a filet - all were wonderful - in addition to a seafood "appetizer" tower of crab claws, lobster and oysters). The crab and lobster were the best I've had - just melted in my mouth. I've eaten at many higher priced restaurants and this experience surpassed all but one. Loved it!!! I/We will be back!

Avoid This Place – We had eaten there in the past and enjoyed the meals. However this night was a surprise. I found that it had changed to an elitist club - I took my wife there to enjoy a meal and was told that we could only eat in the bar or wait 2 hours. The restuarant was over half empty but they didn't want to server us in the main room. The couple who had come out the door as we were going in warned us that we didn't want to eat there. If you are looking for a comfortable place to enjoy a fine meal with friendly people. This isn't the place. With the change in atitude, we will not come back. There are far too many better places in town at this price range.

Good service couldn't overcome noise, food quality – Our anticipation far exceeded the experience. Extremely loud music, totally inappropriate for dining made it dificult to hear our server, who was excellent, very gracious. The room was so dark we were furnished flashlights to read the menu. The crab cake was OK, but a lot more expensive and not as good as several other Austin seafood restaurants. Their dinner of stone crab was the most disappointing - overcooked and flavorless. Nice dessert and coffee. Never again.

Do yourself a favor – Save yourself from the overpriced, noisy atmosphere. While the service was good and the quality of the seafood acceptable, the uninspired chef's concoctions left quite a bit to be desired. I tried several of my companion's dishes and all were so loaded up with sugar that if there wasn't seafood on the plate, I would have been sure that we ordered off of the dessert menu.

If you MUST go here, stick with the bread.

skip it – We were looking for some good seafood on our visit to Austin. Picked this restaurant by chance. Wow!!! The noise level in here is amazing. So loud we could barely hear our server, let alone our dining companions. Our server did seem to be very friendly and attentive. The food was just so-so and overpriced (for the quality). The menu seemed to be fairly small, while the wine list was very extensive. I wouldn't recommend this place to friends.

Food and Service is consistent and excellent – We usually dine at the Arboretum location, which has a much nicer atmosphere by the way, but I wanted to leave a review here as well.

When my hubby is craving seafood, we head to Trulucks. Sure it's expensive, but the food and service always deliver. We love the sweet potato fries as an appetiser. I enjoy the steak tenderloin medallions and he orders a different fish every time that he always raves about. This is a great special occasion restaurant as well as a great place to entertain clients.
