The food was phenomenal but the price was steep. The setting is nice. Music playing but not too loud so you can have a conversation while dining. Best drinks and salads ever!

Wonderful food great service with live music in bar. Excellent dinning experience. I believe this restaurant is packed every nite - I really recommend making reservations. Can't say enough reception - somehow my reservation was made for the wrong day, but they found a table...More

The service at Trucks is fantastic. The food is great especially the seafood tower. The Seabass is also delicious. The restaurant has a bustling bar scene and then upstairs to the dining tables and incredible views downtown.

I love Trulucks. It is very pricey but good. I would not recommend the Monday all you can eat crab claws because it is $75 per person and only includes a salad and dessert and you can't eat that many crab claws, probably.

I think they have some decent options for salads and lots of their sides are vegetarian but not vegan. Think there was Mac n cheese, mushrooms, mashed potatoes. Things like that.

hi! I'm not sure about a vegan meal as I am not very familiar with the diet. The restaurant was extremely accommodating and I would think they could do vegetable meals. hope that helps!
