Truluck’s is one of the fine dining establishments in Austin with a well-deserved reputation. The dining room on a glass-enclosed, second floor offers a great view of the downtown area. The lounge/bar on the first floor is busy and noisy, staffed by some great bartenders,...More

I don't review chains; there, I said it. BUT....in Austin, Texas, there's really one place to go where you will have the best city experience, views, food, and people watching, and that's Truluck's. Sure, you can go to Truluck's in other cities--but you can't go...More

We had an early dinner at Truluck's, starting with cocktails at the bar downstairs. (Yes, we were that early!). The bartender was a former Long Islander who made us feel very welcome. He was solicitous, but not overwhelming. The real treat was our server, a...More

We are four retired ladies on a limited budget. Are we allowed to split a meal? Do you offer a military discount?

Can a vegan get a decent meal here? I see that they're rated as Vegetarian Friendly, but the online Menu doesn't list any vegetable selections, so I can't judge.

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.

hi! I'm not sure about a vegan meal as I am not very familiar with the diet. The restaurant was extremely accommodating and I would think they could do vegetable meals. hope that helps!
