Truluck's Seafood, Steak & Crab House Restaurant Review

: This Houston transplant features some of the finer foods in life: seafood, steak and stone crabs. Expect a boisterous after-work bar crowd enjoying the extensive choices of wines by the glass and a school of seafood lovers at dinner. First order of business: Dig into the stone crab whenever it's in season. We prefer the larger crab claws --- generally sweeter than the smaller size --- served with warm drawn butter and addictively spicy mustard sauce. And while an appetizer is nice, all-you-can-eat is definitely more affordable, so ask about the special nights. Lobster presents a choice of Maine or South African, though you may opt for seafood royalty in Alaskan king crab. Lightly fried, hot and crunchy trout is deservedly a signature dish. But if you aren't doing seafood, try the juicy rib-eye or Angus churrasco steak with fresh chimichurri. Overall, this destination for socializing and seafood dining has something for everyone.
