We have never been disappointed when we come here, although it's more of a special occasion place for us, such as for birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. Their specialty is, of course, seafood, and every dish we have ever ordered over the years has been delicious. There are several dining rooms on different levels, and the ambiance is very nice and...

We arrived at our requested reservation time and were seated immediately while others were waiting for a table. It was quite busy as it was a Saturday evening. Our waiter saw to us promptly and was very helpful in selecting both beverages and our dinners. We received our bread and coleslaw promptly and they were very tasty. The slaw was... More

We were in town for a Michigan football game and ate there. Flavor of the food was awesome. Lots of selections. Menus were on a iPad . Very cool. Very visual. Service was excellent. Resturant was a little noisy.

Went here on a Friday night of a football weekend. We were glad to be able to make a reservation in the afternoon for the evening, as it was busy. We were seated right away. Great choices of the usual seafood offerings, but also had some of the more ambitious classics on the menu for entrees, along with tasty sides... More

I ate at The Real Seafood Co. for the first time in July. I was disappointed in the quality of the food. It was mediocre at best. I expected the scallops I ordered to be large and succulent but instead they were small and tough. My partner was disappointed with his steak as he expected it to be fresh but... More

Overpriced, overhyped "cuisine" like the rest of A2 food offerings. I did not get to meet the surly manager that others have noted, but the food itself was enough to send us out early from the meal. The staff were competent and quick-a refreshing change in Michigan. The food was a little off. We chucked the box in the next... More

Went there for dinner on a recent Friday night. It was a very good experience. The room was busy but we could easily carry on a conversation. The menu is loaded on an I Pad. My first reaction was negative but it actually was very easy to navigate and having pictures of every menu item was nice. The food was... More

Food is very good. The value is also great. Busy here all times of the year. Gazpacho is very good, as are, all the salads.

Presentation of food was unappealing and lacking. Lobster and seafood platter were ordered and we both felt they lacked in seasoning or flavor. Will not return

We’ve dined several times at Real Seafood prior to Michigan football games and have always had a wonderful experience. I really look forward to dining here before the big game. Unfortunately, this past Saturday must have been a really off day for this restaurant, because I wasn’t overly happy when I left. Our experience started off bad and never seemed... More
