We love Truluck's. The food is consistently delicious. The service perfect. But we did miss the intimacy that Truluck's had before the remodel. It was a little too noisy for us to hear our son. I was told by a friend later that there is...More

I think they have some decent options for salads and lots of their sides are vegetarian but not vegan. Think there was Mac n cheese, mushrooms, mashed potatoes. Things like that.
