I went to the Arboretum branch this restaurant chain to celebrate my wife's birthday and we both enjoyed it. Food is great and they have a great selection of wines. It's a great area with live music at the bar. They are a Seafood Restaurant and the recommended dishes are: • TUNA TARTARE TOWER - ushi-grade tuna, avocado, seaweed salad,... More

Great seafood is less abundant in Austin than other major cities but Truluck's stands out, as it has for many years, for its creativity as well as its quality. The downtown location offers a particularly cool atmosphere with live music welcoming you as you enter through a vibrant and exceptional bar. The staff is attentive without being intrusive and the...

The fabulously fresh seafood is only eclipsed by some of the most attentive service one will experience anywhere. Great happy hour, great full dinner. Either downtown or North, the experience is...

When you want great crab, in my estimation, there are only two choices - Stone Crab and Dungeness. Yeah, you can have them shipped in which I've done a lot, but if you just want to avoid the hassle, Truluck's can provide.

Delicious food. We've had crab, lobster and other seafood. The service is great. The restaurant is beautiful. The prices are high. The carrot cake with caramel sauce and salted pecans is to die for. One piece can easily serve two or three people.

Pretty good seafood! Kind of had a fishy smell though so maybe not the freshest. But we were hungry for raw oysters especially and they were good!

Good food, decent service, but quality of both does not rate quite rate 5 star. It has a very nice upscale ambiance and comfortabley bar area. the food was good, but just seemed to be lacking that little extra in flavor and presentation that can put a place over the top. We left saying, "Good, but not in a rush... More
