We went for the end of stone crab season but ended up having steak and lobster. The food was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. The service was excellent. We're looking forward to going back.

Had stone crab and beef filets. Everything was awesome, but you definitely pay for it. Service was professional and dessert was great too!

Delicious salmon for me. 2 filets at the table were beautifully prepared. Plenty of room for the several tables in our area, so no one felt crowded. Handsome decor. Would easily choose it again when in downtown Austin.

Trulucks never disappoints. We’ve been here many, many times for business dinners to anniversaries and New Year’s Eve 2018. Very classic and delicious. Our go-to for any nice evening out

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.
