Pleasant staff and good food

Very pleasant staff and a good dinner. Since we had an appetizer, I decided on the crab cake appetizer as an entree. Waiter mentioned it came with a small side salad so it was plenty. My husband had the stuffed flounder - very tasty and the portion was smaller than pictured on the menu. Lump... read more

Excellent meal and excellent service. We got in quickly without reservations. All 5 of us ordered something different and all dinners were delicious. Lobster bite appetizers were good too. Nice place to eat in downtown Ann Arbor

We have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years when visiting Ann Arbor and it always served such great seafood. However, this time only 1 out of our 3 meals was acceptable. The whole lobster was very small outside it's shell and had no taste - a complete waste of money. The Maine scallops broiled in sherry... More

We came here based on the good reviews and our mutual love for seafood. The service was excellent. We enjoyed the happy hour and ordered each appetizer. Presentation, taste and freshness were wonderful. The prices are very reasonable considering the location. I will return if I ever find myself here in Ann Arbor again.

My husband and I have been meeting some friends in Ann Arbor for dinner for the past few years. Ann Arbor is a halfway point for us and a restaurant Mecca. Recently, we chose to dine at Real Seafood. Our friends raved that it was one of their favorite restaurants anywhere. Wow! Were they ever right? We started by sharing... More

The name says it well. This downtown favorite boasts simple preparation, very fresh fish and seafood, and it always seems to be bustling. It's fairly casual and not quiet, but is consistent in quality and service. It's my go-to place for lobster or crab legs on a birthday, (and, by the way, they have great birthday deals) and it's always... More

My dentist, his wife, my wife and I are good friends (friendship predates them sticking her fingers in my mouth). As one of our twice annual outings we chose the Real Seafood Company for dinner. I had been there a number of years ago, but not recently. On the whole my memories were positive, and this meal was outstanding. We... More

To begin with the bread/rolls are to die for. I dare you to eat just one! We loved the calamari! All of the meals were delicious! We were too full to order dessert, probably due to the rolls!

During the very busy Art Fair weekend we had lunch one day and dinner the following day. The service was as good as expected and the seafood is always fresh and wonderfully prepared. I plan on returning many more times in the future.
