I have dined here at least twice a year for at least 20 years. No disapointments. Very good service and very good food. There is no rush to get you out which makes for a very nice opportunity to catch up with friends

We visited this restaurant recently with two other couples, and had a great time. We were not sure of what to expect because the big art fair was going on when we were there, but it turned out excellent. Our server, Amber was very knowledgeable and helpful. We all six had different dishes and all enjoyed them. We will be... More

Even though I rarely visit downtown Ann Arbor anymore, I still come back to Real Seafood Co. I consider this my default downtown restaurant. It's a convenient place to eat simply because it's very close to a large parking garage. *I wonder how parking will be when Blimpy Burger makes it triumphant return?* I rarely order the same menu twice...

I expected great things with this restaurant, but was very disappointed (especially for the price). The house dressing on my salad was so bitter I could barely eat it. My entree was the salmon prepared Shanghai style, which was extremely salty and only tasted like soy sauce (no other flavors). For dessert, we had creme brule that was cold. I... More

Great seafood selection in a fun atmosphere on Main Street. To start, the menu is on an electronic tablet. It is logical and easy to navigate. For a starter we shared a combination of fresh steamed mussels and clams. They were delicious! They offer a variety of fresh fish with many different preparations, including fresh lobster. They also have a... More

We were quickly greeted and seated at a prime table giving us a view of the street and inside restaurant . We chose our wine beverages and shrimp cocktail appetizer. We both dined on tuna Niçoise salad . We declined... More

After a terrific experience at the Real Seafood Company in Toledo, my father and I chose to dine at the original location on THIS Father's Day. Ann Arbor's Main Street is a revitalized strip of shops and many inviting restaurants. Real Seafood Co. has walls open to the sidewalk so if you don't score a table directly on the sidewalk,... More

Expensive for not very interesting seafood. It has an old-school feel. Not bad food but just not worth going back for.

A bit pricey but the food was very good. My husband tried some of a friend's lobster and said it was amazing! We had quite a large group but we had 2 servers which helped keep things moving. At the end the servers even took some pictures of all of us. The Ipad menus are very cool as well. I... More
