I'd put this at the top of list in Austin. Their downtown location is more festive (i.e. Noisy). Service, food, atmosphere are all great.

Although we just ate at the Truluck’s in Ft Lauderdale on vacation recently we decided to try the one in Austin. It came as no surprise that both the service and food was excellent. I would love to talk about what everyone in our party had but due to my talking about the Sea bass in Florida we all ordered... More

My wife and I have been stuck on Wellfleet Oysters for several years and last Saturday (Date Night) our server suggested somewhat strongly that we try North-Shore oysters and if we didn't like them --No Pay. In fairness we ordered 6 instead of our usual 18. WOW-were they the best yet along with 6 jumbo shrimp and a lump crab... More

My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary. We had been one time before to celebrate our anniversary 7 years ago. We were seated in the exact same booth as last time. Food was better than I remembered, service was great, and the atmosphere relaxing. Will not wait 7 years to go back this time!

The meal and service were excellent, but a tad pricey. The noise level was a little higher than I would have liked. The staff was very informative and accommodating.We will definitely return, perhaps for lunch next time.

Last night in Austin TripAdvisors #1 pick. We were at the Research Blvd location. We went for happy hour and stayed for dinner. The food was exceptional the service was amazing. Olivia was our server, she was pleasant and very informative. We don't typically eat at chains but we will definitely eat at this one again.

My friends and I love Truluck's for Happy Hour! Best bargain in town and you don't have to get stuck in downtown traffic.

Went on a Saturday night. I had smoked fish tacos to start and then the Tuna as main course. Both were excellent. For dessert they have no light desserts and even offer 3 dishes together and they refused to split them off. Apparently the chef thought it wasn't good to do that - clearly the chef doesn't understand that the... More

Finally, I must review this great restaurant. I've dined there three times in the last 9 months and everything was perfect, every time. Service is friendly and impeccable. I love seafood, but Austin doesn't have even *one* good seafood market. Deplorable! Before moving to Austin, I spent most of my life in Louisiana, and I am truly appalled that we... More

I had dinner here on Valentine's evening, 2017. The service was great, the steak and vegetables were perfectly cooked and tender. The manager was very nice and we visited with him. They were very busy this evening and Truluck's is consistently great all around when you consider the service, food and drinks. It's a bit pricey, but you can enjoy... More
