Mainstreet Ventures (Real Seafood, Gratzi, Chop House, etc.) have a policy of buy one get one free on your birthday (should check if this deal is still on but it has been for years). The Real Seafood is our place to go, year, after year. The food is consistently prepared, fish is cooked properly (not dried out, not raw), the... More

Went on Valentine's Day, was super busy so we were seated in an area that I'm sure didn't usually have tables. Our service was very slow, we were there almost 2 hours. They were very busy, but I saw a few people in other areas come in after us and leave before us. Normally I blame slow service on the... More

If you love eating fish then go to Real Seafood in Ann Arbor. On certain nights they serve scrod and it is baked to perfection. I have also tried their salmon and swordfish. Both amazing. I have never had a bad meal there. Easily one of the top three sea food restaurants I have ever been to in my life.... More

We just ate here yesterday for Valentine's Day. They were very busy so we were seated in a back area. The special was lobster tail. My wife ordered that and I had the surf and turf. The salad was very good and the cole slaw was good as well. I had a Sam Adams draft...the beer was very flat. When... More

My husband and I went here for Valentine's Day. Is it sad that I've lived in A-squared for almost a decade and had never been here before? Yes? Okay. Well, anyway, we were able to reserve a table in the late afternoon on short notice (and have I mentioned it was the biggest couples dinner night of the year?), and... More

We take an annual trip to Ann Arbor and Real Seafood Co is always on our list. We make a reservation on Open Table to make sure we have a place and it works out great. The lobster is fantastic and the service is amazing.

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
