“Predictably Tasty and Satisfying”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have been going to Real Seafood off and on for more than 20 years. I can always rely on it for very good meal. The fish is always fresh and well prepared. The salads are very good and so is the house garlic bread. The desserts are also consistently very good.

Pleasant atmosphere, attentive professional waitstaff. What's not to like? The only times I have been disappointed was when I ordered the highest price items (paella, lobster) and they were not outstanding.

“Part of a great evening”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The location on Main street makes the restaurant easy to include in an evening out in Ann Arbor. The food is very good, a little pricey perhaps, but not excessive, portions are ample, the wait staff pleasant and attentive. Even the coffee (frequently a failure at chain restaurants) was excellent. The jambalaya was spectacular; good as anything in Louisiana, and much better than what's usually available. The ambience is a bit barn-like, a large room that lacks a sense of intimacy, but tastefully lit. This is an excellent choice for an evening that might include a show or concert.

“Ann Arbor's "go-to" seafood restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Fresh fish, well-seasoned, well-cooked, knowledgeable staff, for both food and wine and lots of choices for every special diet.

A bit formal, a bit on the "retro" side. And you won't get better seafood anywhere else.

“A consistently good meal”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Real Seafood Company has been in Ann Arbor for many many years and there is a reason that is continues to exist. The fish is always fresh, the menu reliable. There are some new additions to the menu and I like that the menu is presented on a tablet so you can see the photos of the meal. Service was very efficient when I was last there. I can count on their cole slaw , red skin potatoes, and stewed tomatoes for side dishes. Nothing real exciting, but always good.

“Always a great call for seafood.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Everything great about eating on Main Street in Ann Arbor. Lively atmosphere, good drinks, great menu. Great seafood. Due to a glut of restaurants on Main Street, waiting times aren't as bad as they used to be. Drink prices add up though.
