Stone Crab Claws are their draw. Other seafood and steak offering are good, not great for the price. Ambience and the availability of stone crab claws is what commands the price.

The food was as we always expect - EXCELLENT. Service was professional and attentive. Only complaint - very loud and difficult to talk with other couple.. Next time we will get a side booth.

I go here at least once a year. I used to go once a week after school with my dad. If you like seafood, you'll love it here. Additionally, they have a good happy hour and a lounge singer some days. It's fun. If you want a date place, family dinner, dinner with friends or just solo it's a great... More

Absolutely amazing food - egg fried crab rice and mushrooms are a must with whatever else you eat! Service was attentive but not intrusive! Steaks simply perfect! Crab starters excellent. Truly excellent meal!

I made our reservation a few months ago in anticipation of my daughter's graduation from UST. We were not dissapointed. Everything from the greeting we received when we entered to the end of our meal was fantastic! I ordered the blackened redfish pontchartrain and my daughter a steak and shrimp special. My dish was a bit spicy. Our waiter was... More

I hosted a executive dinner in the Naples room but do to weather, half of our guests didn't make it. Davis, our host, was could not have done a better job. He was very intuitive with our needs, got to know us, worked with us to help make sure we were getting the best value possible for our reduced headcount... More

We had not been to Truluck's for several years, but my wife wanted some Stone Crabs for lunch and Truluck's is the place to go. The stone crab is pricey but every bite is so good. There were four of us and we each had 4 Jumbo claws at $25 a piece plus four shrimp cocktails at $18 a piece.... More

Visited Truluck's for a business dinner. Crab would have been my first choice if it was not a business dinner. I went with Salmon, and while cooked properly, it did not justify the price tag and/or the dish was not on par with the class of this restaurant. It was too rich, and too salty – there was room for... More

We had never heard of Truluck's, but selected it for lunch after visiting the Space Center, based upon online reviews. We selected the Power Lunch Special and it was more than adequate. We were at the tail end of lunch on a Tuesday and it was sparsely occupied. Certainly, the presentation and the service was top-notch. Our server, Rick, deserves... More
