We stopped by for drinks and stone crab claws prior to dinner. The host was welcoming, as the rest of the staff. The singer and piano player was nice. Great atmosphere. The Moscow mule was just average .

Our concierge recommended Trulick's for NYE dinner. Great decision. Price Fixed menu offered an excellent variety of dishes. Our four course meal was one for the books. Stone crab, chopped salad with shrimp, surf and turf and ending with baked Alaska. Service was beyond great. Our server, Nicholas, was friendly, hospitable and competent. Dinner was perfect!

Was there with my wife for a couples dinner. The lobster bisque is amazing. The spicy bass was great. The seared tuna however was a bit boring. Good service and a very nice location. But it does lack something in the food department to make up for the high prices.

I had been here before on a business dinner and wanted to bring my wife back here for a birthday dinner. Our reservation was at 530 pm and we arrived a little early prior to the rush. Needless to say, the food was awesome, the service was distracted with too many other tables, and we didn't leave until after 730... More

We went with another couple to Truluck's last year for our holiday dinner celebration and it was so good we went back again this year. They gave us our same second floor table (upon request) that we had last year, overlooking the street scene. The experience was not as good as we remembered, but that may not have been the... More

Was so excited to visit this place, and it stood up to my expectations! Even though I am a little hesitant eating seafood this far from the coast, ( I don't consider the gulf coast really clean) there seafood was super fresh and the presentation was the best part about it!

Really one of the finest Dining Experiences I've had. Excellent, Attentive Service and great food. Quite Expensive, but in no way a rip-off.

What a fantastic visit to Truluck's for my husband's birthday! The little details that they add really make a difference. Lemon, lime or orange slice in your water, the manager coming over to introduce himself right away, putting party glitter on our table so everyone knew we were celebrating something.... (although my husband didn't like all the attention! haha). They... More

I've eaten at Truluck's many times both for business and for pleasure - it's hard to beat the combination of ambiance, menu, and service. Most recently, my wife and I made a reservation there for a somewhat impromptu anniversary dinner and were surprised yet again at the little things that made the experience singular. My wife had been suffering back... More

Been here twice. It's a treat since its so expensive. Count on $100/person without drinks. But the service and food are impeccable. Can't say enough good things about this place. If you like scallops, get the scallop entree. They are tender, moist and LARGE! Bon appetite!
