Everything I've heard about how great this place is is true! We were coming from a baseball game and dressed accordingly, yet we were welcomed warmly. Fabulous booth, table scattered with rose petals. Waiter very helpful and accommodating. Wine list and cocktails fairly reasonably priced. Food very expensive but worth it. Service amazing!! Even got a follow up call next... More

Truluck's is spread out over two levels with the ground floor dedicated to an enormous - and backlit - u-shaped marble bar. It is a great place to pull up, have a drink and even a full meal. There are also a number of high top tables and later in the evening there is live entertainment. This is the place... More

So I was with a group with a fixed menu. I selected the redfish which is not what I normally would have gotten if there was no restriction to what I could order. It was excellent.

We live in Austin and regularly go to Truluck's for their cocktail hour. The ambiance is great and the happy hour choices never disappoint.

A great place for a special night out... More

What I like most about Truluck's is that it doesn't matter which location you go to you know you are going to get good food and good service. They are consistent like that location to location. They have a nice wine list by the glass as well as by the bottle and the seafood is very fresh and excellently prepared.... More

We had a variety of drinks, appetizers, and dessert... they were all very good, but everything was really pricey (for Austin; if u're from New England area, it's about the same as a round of Happy Meals in New England ;))
