Austin >Truluck's Seafood Steak and Crabhouse
Go For Late Lunch. Immediately loved the place upon walking in: fun, tacky, whimsically outdoorsy decor made for an easy, breezy feel. We were seated with no wait....until our waitress came around. Sweet, but slow service. Greek Seafood Salad was tops, and perhaps one of the few values on the menu.
Casual-yet-festive chain offers selections from its Florida fisheries with tropical seasonings and decor..
Canvas nautical-style fans and large windows--some bearing beautiful, dark brown wood and plantation-style shutters--are reminiscent of beachfront Florida restaurants. Rattan chairs and placemats, mounted fish, colorful paper lampshades and wicker-covered ceiling fans enhance the atmosphere. Crowds include families (kids' menu, games and puzzles provided) and business people. Service is attentive and unobtrusive.
Fiery habanero salsa complements large, smoky-flavored shrimp quesadillas, the perfect start to an oceanic repast. Try the artichoke crab bisque: seafood, celery and red bell peppers swim in a rich, creamy broth. Key West shrimp and conch fritters, beer-battered to golden-brown perfection and chunky with onions and bell peppers, are dipped into an unusual, spice-laden tartar sauce. Tangy mango relish coats hot and crunchy trout, a deep-fried huge filet. Top entree choice: snap-crackle-pop shrimp served in a sizzling skillet with linguini and tender, plentiful baby shrimp sauteed in a tomato-garlic sauce.
not all that. Had lunch there a few days ago and was not really impressed. Ordered off the lunch special and special it was not. Partner had snapper and did not finish it as it was pretty "bland". Overall, I expected a better quality of food.
Poor customer service. Waited for over an hour for a table for lunch (we were told 10-15 minutes). Had to leave to get back to work. When told that we were leaving the management did not even say sorry... Bad expereince would not go back.
