Turluck's is part of a chain. It has a nice atmosphere -- quiet so you can talk and attractive décor. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. We did not feel rushed and enjoyed out time at the restaurant. We all ordered steak and they were good but not great and they were expensive. They were cooked... More

Seems like this would be a reliable choice - all the meals were delicious. The salmon was tops - the salads were fresh and nicely portioned. The asparagus on the side was very delicious. Save room for desserts as they are somewhat of an experience here - good variety of cakes.

After 11 years of routine visits. Quality FRESH Seafood Expertly Prepared to Your Desire ! My Wife and I find Truluck's at the Arboretum in North Austin is the only place to go. My personal suggestion: Have reservations for a table. Visit the Cocktail Bar from 4-7pm before your dinner. Then when your table is ready -you hopefully have checked... More

Not unusual or inventive, but excellently prepared food. The crab claws are a must. Just watch out for the cost of your meal creeping up. We ordered two medium crab claws each; a salad to share; an entree to share; a cocktail each; glass of wine each, and dessert. Bill was $260.00 before tip. Service was exceptional and good was...

My husband and I recently moved to Austin from the Washington, D.C. area and are familiar with Trulucks, especially their happy hour. We decided to go to this location to get a taste of "back home" and we're very disappointed. Our waiter tried to give suggestions for wine and didn't understand the type we were looking for (and we are... More

The Truluck's quality continues! We visited this property on our trip to Austin as we were confident that we would find a romantic table and food to tempt any palate! The service (thanks Joshua) was attentive but not overbearing. We thought the visit from the manager - leaving his card at our table with confidence - was a nice touch.... More

My wife and I celebrated 36th wedding anniversary last night at Truluck's. This was our first time here and it was fantastic. We had rose petals on the table and a complimentary baked Alaska in recognition of the celebration. The bar is old school with live music and wonderful drinks. For dinner my wife had the stripped bass and I... More

My wife and I stopped in for appetizers, drinks and to try the much talked about carrot cake. We had the fish tacos, crab au gratin and the carrot cake. Everything was top notch. Probably the best seafood and dessert we have ever had. Highly recommend. The service was also fantastic. Recommend making a reservation.

I had not been to this location and was pleasantly surprised by its casual elegance. Very courteous staff. Our waiter's timing was always on the spot. The dining room is well lit and the soft live music enhanced our experience. We had fresh golden king crab legs. I found them a bit heavy on garlic which takes from the crab's... More

My husband and I visited Truluck's last night to celebrate our anniversary. From beginning to end, everything was perfect!! Upon greeting us, we were asked if we were celebrating anything special and we told them about our anniversary. The waitress was extremely attentive and explained all of the specials in detail. Each course was extraordinarily delicious! We ordered lobster bisque... More
