This was our second dinner visit. Both times it was very crowded. Don't know why except it is in season and most places are crowded. Service was slow but not unexpected with the crowd. Appetizers and entrees arrived almost simultaneously. Jambalaya (signature dish) was uninspiring. No distinctiveness. Clam chowder was so thick and no flavor. Chicken poppers were real chicken...

Went to Truman's after golf. Had fish and chips - fries barely warm, fish so over-cooked was almost liquid inside and greasy. Coleslaw that came on the plate tasted fishy. This is the first time I have ever had a bad meal here, so I'm sure I will try again but not for a while. Need to get the bad... More

Excellent for lunch or dinner after golf. Good choice of salads and great sandwiches. Staff are friendly and you do not have to sit in the bar with TVs .They have daily specials and happy hour. Definitely recommend you give it a try

We visited on a Wed. Dec. 21, 2016, for an early dinner. The restaurant was empty, and there were only a few people at the bar. The waitress took our drink order and brought drinks to the table quickly. However, dinner took a very long time. Three people ordered medium burgers and they were well done. Having two children in... More

Fun a sassy bartenders make this a fun stop. They have bar bites and for 5 bucks, pretty good. The ribs are good and the chicken sliders need an upgrade!!! Good selection of draft beers and at the bar, the service was excellent.

We have been here several times. The food is usually just average, but the service is below par - very slow for the most part. It is fairly inexpensive, which, together with its location, is why, I believe, it draws customers. We will go there only if we are nearby and really don't feel like driving elsewhere.

Truman's is in the Publix shopping center at State Route 70 and Lakewood Ranch Boulevard in Lakewood Ranch. If you are coming from the west, take the left before you get to Lakewood Ranch. If you are going south on the Boulevard, take a short cut by going behind Publix. You end up right in front of the restaurant. There... More
