The service was great and the food was decent. We had a large group that got pretty rowdy, but we were accommodated professionally. I was not as impressed by the seafood as others, but it was fresh and prepared well.

Wow, what great food. From the Oysters Rockefeller to the shrimp, our meals were all prepared perfectly. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

We had a very enjoyable dinner. I had salmon and it was cooked just right and almost melted in my mouth. We sat inside but...with the garage type door open we felt like we were outside with just a roof overhead. The service was quick, professional and friendly. The prices were a little above average but well worth it. I'm... More

Real Seafood Co. is just like a warm hug. We come for lunch when driving back to Cleveland from Kalamazoo and always look forward to it. In the summer, I love sitting near the open front doors- keeps the summer nearby at all times! Today we had a cup of clam chowder, shrimp cocktail (split with my husband), and a... More

I tried the Sea Base in a Miso Glaze. It was awesome. This place is a bit expensive however, the quality of the food made it worth it. Great friendly server Amanda.

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
