I am an out-of-towner, visiting relatives in Houston. We had a delicious dinner at Truluck's last night. We treated ourselves to an appetizer of lobster claws. Delicious, tender and flavorful! Our entrees included grilled tuna and salmon. The salads, soups, and vegetables were all tasty. Our table shared one piece of carrot cake for dessert; even though we all ate... More

Food was good but service was awful. Waited 20 minutes to get acknowledged, 45 min for food, server left plates in front of us for 20 minutes without removing and then left desert tray on table for 15 minutes without checking in. Crazy. Left a survey there and no call.

I was very impressed with the over all experience of this place. From the phone recepcionist, the waiter and the maitre d, everyone is very kind and attentive. The decor is sophisticated and the food is delicious. We had the jumbo stone crab claws and the south African lobster tail. Everything was extremely fresh and well prepared. At one point... More

If you love seafood, you'll love Truluck's. I've eaten in this one and the one in Austin and both were superb. Crab is a speciality and it's worth taking the waiters recommendation on what's freshest and tastiest.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Houston. On Mondays they do all you can eat stone crab claws and I go as often as I possibly can! The interior is nice with booth seating and soft lighting. My boyfriend generally orders a blackened fish with Pontchartrain sauce. It is always amazing! I think it comes with a soup... More

There were two of us and we had oysters and lobster bisque for starters and Alaskan Crab Claws and Sea Bass for mains. Everything was perfect. We had some time between courses which is appreciated in Houston where it is not unusual to have the main course arrive before you've finished with the starter. Wines were very expensive - an...

I have eaten here twice and each time I am more impressed. The service is spectacular, the food is excellent, and the ambience is delightful. Every time I have eaten there the manager has come to see if everything was ok. I don't know the last time that has happened in a restaurant that I frequent unless I am acquainted... More
