I've been going to Real Seafood since it opened about 40 years ago. I used to live in Ann Arbor and ate there about once a week. Now that I've moved, I adjust my plans to have a meal there if I'm anywhere in the area. My impression of their strategy is that they aim to serve really fresh seafood, simply prepared. The sidewalk tables are especially nice when the weather cooperates.

Stopped for a birthday lunch today. Food and service were excellent. One of the few places left that still offers a great gift for your birthday. Otherwise, our staff assistant, Brandi was attentive, responsive, and knowledgeable. Food was great. Will definitely stop here again.

I was doing some business recently in Michigan and decided to explore Ann Arbor. I decided to have dinner at the Real Seafood Company. The food is fresh and delicious, any fresher, you better pack some slicker and head to the dock. I had the Blue Plate which allowed me to have a little bit of everything, Stuffed Flounder, Crab Cake, Scallops, Shrimp and a couple of Oysters. The wine selection is adequate with several varieties to choose from. The menu is on a tablet and you can scroll thru the different pairings. The staff is friendly and attentive but not intrusive and the decor inviting with sidewalk seating available. If you are in Ann Arbor for the big game make sure you stop at Real Seafood Company and leave the slickers at home.

On a nice night the tables on the sidewalk or just inside the opened walls are a great place to sit, eat and enjoy the activity of downtown Ann Arbor.

The crab cake, gazpacho with seafood and artichoke crab dip were all very good.

Paper menus have been replaced by leather bound tablet computers which are easy and interesting to use.

Real Seafood has been there forever now. A member of the Main Street Ventures family of restaurants, it excels in everything it serves.

Real Seafood is a contemporary seafood restaurant that offers premium fresh fish and seafood from New England, the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. They offer fresh oysters, lobster, shrimp, and the authentic flavors of seasonal and local produce.

Service is excellent. They are prompt, friendly and come to your table with the best warm bread you've ever put in your mouth.
