I was in the mood for comfort food, mac & cheese, to be exact. This was the 1st restaurant that came up on my google search. This is a neighborhood restaurant, which I loved. The atmosphere was inviting and the staff were nice. I had the lobster mac & cheese which I highly recommend. My friend had the pork chops... More

My husband & I go to this restaurant quite often for lunch & dinner. Everything on the menu is very good!! Service is excellent-everyone is very friendly. We try to have Kim, our favorite waitress, take care of us, but if she's not there everyone else is also very friendly!

Really enjoyed this restaurant! The pork chop was very good. The green beans were excellent and the sauces were very good. A great find!

Went with family. The place is nice but the food is expensive and just kind of run of the mill. They were out of a few things. They have a nice amount of room to improve.

Steaks and lamb chops are great. Most of meals are not exactly what I ordered. They need to pay attention to that. If this does become more of a bar place I won't be coming back.

When Truth first opened several years ago, it was like a breath of fresh air on the local restaurant scene. The atmosphere and menu were both slanted toward females, but it still offered meat and potatoes for "team testosterone." After a recent business lunch visit, it appears this breath of fresh air has a breathing problem. It wasn't a bad... More

Joliet isn't exactly a hot spot for dining. So Truth is a rare gem for this area. We dine here with friends and often time our meal to coordinate with a performance by Nova Soul, a wonderful quartet which plays during and after the meal. The menu has an excellent variety and the food and service are very good. I... More
