I choose Real Seafood for my birthday dinner with my two main guys, my husband & my son :) our server was wonderful; she was at our table JUST prior to any needs but never hovered or interrupted our conversation. She was a pro. The food was tasty. I had seafood bolganas & it was delicious. They offered us a... More

We love going to Real Seafood for special occasions. The food is always excellent and the staff very accommodating. You will always find the freshest of seafood here. Summer months is exceptionally nice when you can sit outside and be a part of the action on Main Street. If you are looking for a great place to go, for an... More

We went to lunch here today. If you want the basics .. Cod, Halibut. and Atlantic Salmon .. maybe you'll enjoy the place. I had a cup of soup. Nothing else even peaked my interest. I heard they just got a new chef, we can only hope things improve. My date had fish and chip and said it was fine,... More

Our Favorite Seafood place! My wife and I started going to the Real Seafood Company in 1993. Our Entree of choice used to be the Alaskan King Crab legs. Huge portion of Crab Legs with nice sides. On one of our visits, we tried the Maryland Lump Crab Cakes and have been ordering them ever since. Large Crab Cakes full... More

When in a town, I tend to buy what seems most appropriate for the area. So when in Maine, buy lobster, when in Texas, buy beef. Fortunately, Ann Arbor has quite a number of very good restaurants specializing in all kinds of foods. Being well inland, you wouldn't think there would be great seafood in Ann Arbor and maybe there... More

My wife & I celebrate both of our birthdays at Real Seafood every year. We take advantage of the free birthday meal. We love the food. I am only disappointed that they recently eliminated the New England Clam bake from the menu. It was my favorite meal.

This is my favorite Happy Hour place in the area. Very nice bar area and excellent appetizers. My husband and I do not really care for Main Street Venture Restaurants wine selections. They do have nice mixed drinks.

Tried this place for lunch and both our seafood oders were cooked perfectly, flakey and moist. The house salads were fresh anf their house dressing complimented it nicely. Had fresh breadtoo. Friendly service and we sat in the front glass covered patio. I was impressed. As usual, finding parking in downtown Ann Arbor is a pain.

We have never been disappointed when we come here, although it's more of a special occasion place for us, such as for birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. Their specialty is, of course, seafood, and every dish we have ever ordered over the years has been delicious. There are several dining rooms on different levels, and the ambiance is very nice and...

We arrived at our requested reservation time and were seated immediately while others were waiting for a table. It was quite busy as it was a Saturday evening. Our waiter saw to us promptly and was very helpful in selecting both beverages and our dinners. We received our bread and coleslaw promptly and they were very tasty. The slaw was... More
