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

Yes, it can be pricey, but the quality of the food, the well-trained staff and the ambiance makes it well worth the visit.

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

We celebrated my husband's birthday at the Real Seafood in Ann Arbor. The food was costly but hot & tasty. Service was good. Our server checked on us frequently. We had to wait a little while to be served but they were fairly busy. The atmosphere was good but very noisy! Thanks for the free birthday meal Real Seafood but... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants for either lunch or dinner. The Manhattan clam chowder is very good as well as the salmon BLT served only at lunch. Pasta dishes and salads are also outstanding.

This place is awesome! I always get lobster AND THEY'LL CRACK IT FOR YOU which makes it an ideal place to go for fancy occasions (who wants to crack a lobster in a prom dress, for example). Really good cole slaw and I hate cole slaw. I don't really like anything else they have there (and I've never had a... More

This place has class. It's pricey, but I never mind when I choose to go there, because I know I'm getting my money's worth. My favorite thing is to take my daughters there. We sit, have wine, talk, have some appetizers, talk and when the meal comes it has the perfect quantity of food and quality. I have never felt... More
