Fodor's Expert Review Truluck's

$$$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area Seafood

Pricey-but-excellent fish, shellfish, and steak are served in handsome surroundings that suggest a businessmen's yacht club at Truluck's, part of an upscale chain with restaurants in Texas and Florida. The downtown location recently reopened after a $3 million expansion and remodel, which included a second story dining area with floor to ceiling views of the surrounding Warehouse District and skyline. Every Monday is still all-you-can-eat crab claw night. But you can get Truluck’s signature stone crab any day of the week at the Downtown and Northwest locations. Alaskan king crab is also expertly rendered, if expensive. We recommend the jumbo lump crab cake, the hot-and-crunchy trout over citrus aioli sauce with a mango-jalapeño marmalade, and any of the steaks.
