I forget just how good this place is! Excellent service, great starters ( a couple stone crab claws for an appetizer is a perfect start ), perfect entree, and baked Alaska to end the evening. Timing and attention from our server was spot on!

This a seafood restaurant with very limited fish choices...didn’t have a mild white fish option...had to eat steak instead. Left disappointed. Pricing is high, much more than expected - more than last time. Probably won’t be back.

I suspect it prudent to say everyone may want to select this restaurant at least once and make your own decision. There are many upscale seafood and steak eateries in the DFW area that all use the best quality ingredients. All have great service. There, it comes down to taste - a reflection of seasonings and preparedness of the ingredients. We were not blown away by the food and its taste. Based on that, our personal taste would steer us to another establishment.

This is our new Thanksgiving tradition! Best place to go for food and service - the total package. I love the wait staff - they are so polite, friendly, and accomodating. If you need a Thanksgiving go-to place, this is it.

Had Thanksgiving here with my son and it was about as perfect as it could get! Service, ambiance, food - awesome. They had an optional traditional meal which my son had and I came in for the stone crab claws and tried the crab crusher and, of course, their baked Alaska. Know where I will be next year!

My husband and I enjoyed Thanksgiving Day meal here and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambiance. We loved the booth arrangement as it allowed us space to enjoy conversation with each other.
Our server was great! He’s fairly new but couldn’t tell by his delivery of all things during our time there. His name is Jason.
The food was delectable.
Great experience 👍🏻👍🏻

Booked for birthday. Service was impeccable. Food was at best average. Ordered Sea Bass. Texture was less than firm and flavor was what one would expect from frozen fish. Not bad, but for the price not high quality.

Given the price of the venue we expected more. The one bright spot was our waiter. She went above and beyond to service our evening.

This was our second time the Trulucks and we were beyond pleased again. Our first visit had us wanting to come back again when we are in the Dallas area. The service, ambiance and food were top notch.

Last time both my husband and I got the lobster bisque for our appetizer and had to get it again this time too. Definitely the best that we’ve ever had. This time we also ordered the salt and pepper calamari and everything about it was fabulous. Loved the added veggies that were mixed in with it too.

For our entrees my husband couldn’t decide between two dishes and our server (sorry I can’t remember his name) was very knowledgeable about this dishes and my husband went with the chilean sea bass. He’s never had this fish before but he was absolutely blown away with how buttery and flavorful it was.

For myself I ordered the Hawaiian Ahi Tuna and was very impressed with the flavor and texture. The Parmesan mashed potatoes were a great addition to the dish too. Last time I ordered the scallops and loved them as well.

Mike, one of the managers, came to our table a couple times and was wonderful to talk with. He was very knowledgeable with the area and was able to give us some suggestions as to what else to do while here for a few days.

Very nice place, service, food and ambiance! This will be a must go to place anytime we’re here in the area.

We have enjoyed Trukucks for years. My last couple experiences have not met expectations. Prices for the Crab Legs were high and the portion while supposed to be 1lb, seemed undersized. Lobster was dry and the kitchen was slow. Salads and appetizers came out at the same time. Overall disappointing experience. Not what I have experienced in previous years.

For the first time ever we had a subpar meal at Trulucks. My husbands ribeye was grocery store quality and my scallops weren’t cooked all the way through. We understand that the steak might be a supply chain issue, but then they shouldn’t sell them at $65. Our waiter John however was great and stone crab claws were perfect.

We were really sorry to see the raisin bread and other breads in a basket were discontinued. Please consider bringing them back. We also missed the salmon flatbread appetizer. We loved the live music and our server in the bar was awesome.

Not the normal experience, our food took over 45 minutes to get, server did not bring bread or even offered, too many nats flying around, brought up to our waiter, he said you should see our kitchen
Not something you want to hear at a fancy restaurant.
Manager never checked on our table like we saw others being checked on.

Love this place. Fact is we’re going there every week 🥰. Only reason we didn’t give it 5 stars all the way is that. Well. 😂 we ordered 6 oysters. Got 12 🤷🏻‍♂️ (but no complaint as they were delish). Asked for our steak to be medium rare, and more in the rare side. Got it medium, and more in the well done side 😕. But, again, despite that, it was still delicious 😋. Love a friendly waiter. I mean they make the experience even better. But sometimes- you just want to be catered to without having to entertain the waiter too (you know they love being friendly and we do too. And when they are that nice and amazing. Hard not to love them). And last but not least. We asked for sparking water and he poured it in a glass with ice 🧊 😳. Never had that before and not my fav way to enjoy sparkling water. 😌
That being said the food was (other than the steak being a bit overcooked) sensational.
Will be there again this Friday. Our third time in 3 weeks. Hoping to make this a weekly occurrence. We shall see 😎

We had a family birthday celebration. From checkin to end of the meal we had fabulous customer service. I had filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly.
