Diner Reviews
  • "Great dinner place. We had a table for four in the outdoor/indoor area. We all enjoyed the area we were seated in. Each of us ordered a different entree. Presentation was great & food was delicious. Would definitely eat here again."

  • "The only issue I had was since my birthday was not ON the day we went I was charged for dessert. Most restaurants a more flexible and let you slide a week or two."

  • "We arrived early and were still seated right away - on a crowded Friday night. Service was excellent - we were in and out in about an hour for a party of 5. All of us loved our meals. Both the swordfish and salmon were very good. The only drawback was it is a bit pricey - but nothing that bad."

  • "We took a friend to dinner here recently, just because she had never been here. The food and service were both wonderful. Best crab cakes I have ever had as an appetizer, followed by perfect scallops and a dessert to share. Whether I live near or far, it is always worth the effort to drive to Real Seafood in Ann Arbor. This has been one of my favorites for over 25 years, and it just gets better every time I go."

  • "Fish must be fresh and fresh it always is at the Real Seafood. That says a lot about this restaurant. It is our go to restaurant when we want fish. The menu changes modestly fro year to year but the fresh catch of the day is what we usually get.and we have always been satisfied."

  • "Well worth the visit, even if you have to wait to sit down. We did not have to wait since we had an early reservation."

  • "Celebrated husband's birthday there and all five of our party's entrees were delicious. Husband loved the crab legs and portion was larger than most Seafood restaurants. I actually had a steak filet as I am not a fan of Seafood and was pleasantly surprised has to the great quality of the filet. Service was great and appreciated our server's sense of humor. Price on the high side so wouldn't go frequently but great for special occasions."

  • "Food was great. Server was great. Company was good! We ate the crawfish hushpuppies and paella with a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Russian Rivers."

  • "I have been wanting to try this place, as we kept seeing in in Ann Arbor and it looked nice. We finally got to go in for our anniversary and it was GREAT! Their lunch menu was pretty comparable price wise to Red Lobster, but the food was better. I got the scallops (HUGE) and the portion was perfect. Great service and food came quickly - if you like sea food, at least try this place once."

  • "Had a party of 8. 3 hours from start to finish. Service was adequate but not great. We ordered a bottle of wine. When 1 guest ordered another glass of the same as the bottle, the waiter should have pointed out that we already had the bottle. Instead Brian brought another glass & of coursebthe increase on our bill. Disappointed in customer service."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "My husband and I have been here several times and love the fresh fish (trout, swordfish, etc.). However, one of our best friends came to visit who happens to love mussels. She was really disappointed since they lacked flavor. Of all the places we could have taken her to enjoy shellfish, we would have assumed Real Seafood would excel... Probably should have went to the Earle."

  • "Well located for attendance at Ark shows. Consistently good food, and service. Reasonably priced. An Ann Arbor institution and one Idily recommend."

  • "If I have only one night in Ann Arbor, it will always be at Real Seafood for dinner. Not in a rut, but just amazed at the consistently great food, energetic vibe and great staff. They always have great specials and I am a seafood fanatic. Great seafood in the Midwest can be a challenge. Never, ever had a bad meal at RS. Not sure how they do it, but their staff are young ( look it anyway ) and very professional and engaging. It can be as formal as you want or as casual. Love it!!!"

  • "My wife loves their tuna so whenever she wants to go on a date she recommends we go here. It's always quiet, good service, and a nice environment. We've eaten here many times and it's always consistent. Very friendly and helpful servers."

  • "What a great birthday deal. Unfortunately, we weren't huge fans of our food choice this time. We have been here many times and loved it. This time there was sand in just about everything, partly our fault for ordering mussels, but it left a sandy taste in our mouth. The shrimp and crab cakes were delicious though. There was also a baby screaming for a good minute or two, which was weird."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Called to indicate a later than expected arrival. Very gracious and very accommodating. Was seated immediately upon arrival. Only downside was the server who poured the water never introduced herself as the person who would be the server for the entire evening. She also never asked if we wanted another round of drinks, bread , etc. we literally had to ask for everything."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here. This restaurant is sentimental to us because my husband proposed to me in this restaurant twenty years ago! The food is superb. I had the miso glazed sea bass and it was delicious and cooked to perfection. My husband had the seafood Linguini also very delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "We drove from Chicago excited for our 7:15 reservation on Friday night. Despite a bad accident that stopped traffic in Battle Creek, we managed to arrive in the restaurant at exactly 7:15 without first stopping at our hotel. Despite our best efforts to honor our reservation, the restaurant did not honor the reservation. We were told that the delay would be a minimum of 30 minutes and likely longer. The restaurant must be very good to have been so crowded. On the other hand, what does such a delay say about the restaurant's management? Saying that too many diners are taking too long to depart is an embarrassing excuse for a well-run operation. We left and walked two blocks to Logan, where we had a great meal!"

  • "We have dined at the Real Seafood Company many times and the food is always fantastic. This time, we decided to make a reservation via Open Table. When we arrived at the restaurant it was full of people waiting for tables so, we were glad that we made a reservation. Much to our dismay, we had to wait 45 minutes beyond our reservation time to be seated. There were many people in our same situation and we heard a number of them ask for the manager. We even saw 2 to 3 groups of people that walked out of the restaurant as they were not willing to wait."

  • "Outstanding in every way from the food to the service staff-We conducted a high end business meeting that allowed privacy and comfortable conversation over outstanding food and wine. We sought out management to complement the waitress and her helper"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food and the service. Unfortunately at the table near our booth there were four men whose conversation with each other carried far and wide. I don't know what you can do about that, for the waitress cannot speak to them for fear of insulting them. We did not feel at liberty to speak to them. I'm sure there were others within range of their loud talk, laughter, etc. It was difficult for us to hear each other. I have been to Real Seafoood at noon and the noise level was such that the two of us enjoyed our time to talk to each other.. I will come at noon in the future. We were celebrating two birthdays by coming to Real Seafood, but could not comfortably communicate with each other."

  • "Once again, we chose Real Seafood for a celebratory dinner. The food was outstanding as usual. I did think the presentation was off, may have been a new person in the kitchen. Overall, another very good experience."

  • "Though I go to Real Seafood frequently it had been about two years since I ordered crab legs. These were the best we have ever had, anywhere, anytime."

  • "I would like to recommend in upgrading the beer on tap. Going into an establishment like this, the expectation is the beer available is more on the high end such as Fat Tire. Rotating or completely changing the selection would be an improvement."

  • "We haven't been here in years. I'm not sure why. The food was superb, the atmosphere nice and peaceful on a cold weekday night beforehand going to the Ark. Prices were up, but then food costs more everywhere including at the grocery store. I had the scallops with blue cheese, bacon & sherry. Best food I have had in forever. My husband had the Michigan cherry whitefish which is still top notch."
