    I had made reservations at about 11:45 am for 7:30 pm that same night. We arrived 5 min early and ended up having to wait until around 7:50 to be seated. It was pretty busy for a Saturday night however that is why you make reservations. We still ended up getting to the next part of our night on time and the food and service was great as usuall.

    Every time my wife and I are in Toledo we try to stop here. We both grew up on the east coast so we always like going to a good seafood restaurant, when we can. Real Seafood has an excellent array of choices for lunch. I had the Lobster Roll that was chock full of lobster pieces in a nice chunky & creamy sauce. My wife had the Seafood Alfredo. Both were excellent. I had Fries on the side with mine. They were crispy, which was nice as so many restaurants do not prepare them that way anymore. If its a nice day, sit outside and enjoy the waterfront.

    I actually had dinner here on a Friday evening and ate inside. It was fantastic. Went into the bar and had after diner drinks with live entertainment. ( Piano player and vocalist ) Saturday at lunchtime we were thinking of other places to go but decided to go back and eat outside off the lunch menu. Again a wonderful experience.

    We have never been disappointed in the food or service at Real Seafood, Toledo, OH. The servers are knowledgeable in the food selections and are honest about the taste of the food, if a particular dish is spicy or how it is made. If you want to find a great restrauant with excellent food, great ambiance and exceptional service then this is the place.

    First time at Real Seafood. Waiter was fantastic, couldn't have been better. Food was cooked to perfection. We were there during the day & I could tell I'd really enjoy an evening there when all the lights are on; I'll be back. Fantastic offer they have there.... 50% off your dinners when you go on your birthday! :-) OH AND.... dessert of your choice, their treat!! Wonderful experience from start to finish, loved it!

    This was the perfect location for my fiancé and I (along with our families) to celebrate our recent engagement. The waitress asked us if we were celebrating anything special, which was a nice touch. I recommend The Real Seafood Company to anyone celebrating a special event. The food was delicious. I had the seared Ahi tuna with hash browns and would order it again in a heartbeat. My fiancé and I will most certainly return. This is a hidden gem in Toledo!

    This is an Ann Arbor restaurant that opened up near the river in downtown Toledo. Had been to the one in Ann Arbor several times. This one is a pretty huge restaurant...food was excellent...even better than the one in Ann Arbor! Well prepared and served piping hot. Good wine list. Good desserts and service was excellent...server was very knowledgeable about food rep and wines.

    The quality is not the same as it was years ago. Fish and chips were very greasy! Chicken Alfredo was terribly salty! Crab cake was extremely small! Cranberry Chicken salad was ordered and then after a long wait...found out they didn't have cranberries! We won't go back.

    First time at Real Seafood and will absolutely be back. As my husband and I recently moved to the area, we've been on a mission to find the best restaurants and after trying out Mancy's Bluewater Grille the weekend prior, I have to say that Real Seafood truly takes the cake. Everything was much better and for pretty much the same price. The food was far more delicious. We started with the calamari which was fresh and flavorful. I had the crab legs and my husband had the stuffed flounder - both were outstanding. I finished off the night with a nice slice of the key lime pie. The outside seating was perfect - beautiful view of the river and Toledo Skyline. The service and atmosphere were great. I have no complaints! We will be returning.

    Food was great, but the prices were much greater, sad to say. Gotta have really deep pockets to eat here. We split a bowl of soup for the appetizer ($8 - the actual appetizers were way too expensive), got the two cheapest entrees ($22,99, $23.99), and paid $7.90 for two bottles of water, since I can't drink the regular water. With the bowl of gelato (also split between the two of us), a 50% birthday discount on the food and the tip, we were still out $55.00! We were on The Docks, and it ate me up knowing we could have gone next door to El Vaquero, had nearly twice the food at half the cost, with the same wonderful view of the Maumee and downtown Toledo. Real Seafood had very good seafood--if your pockets are deep enough. Sigh.

    The only issue we had was the choice we made to sit between the main part of the restaurant and the outdoor tables. Very noisy. Since it was our choice I cannot fault the restaurant. We were well taken care of by the wait staff and found the food to be surprisingly good as this is an Ohio restaurant boasting about good seafood.

    Visiting Toledo for the first time and took a chance on this restaurant. Not disappointed. Our excellent and knowledgeable server, Chris B, was helpful and interesting to talk with. Every dish that we ordered was excellent, especially the Bleu Cheese Cole Slaw. Crab Cakes were better than my homemade ones, and my husband enjoyed his Stuffed Salmon. Several people from our convention came in while we were there, and raved as we did. We raved about RS to the locals and others upon returning to the hotel. Liked that they gave out recipe cards for our dishes. Should we be in Toledo again or passing through, we will make sure to stop in if the hour is right. A true gem in a rather sparse offerings part of the city!

    This was not our first time dining at the Real Seafood but I think it will be a long time before we go again. We were celebrating a special occasion and asked when we place reservations that we be seated near the window. When we arrived the hostess said that she will seat us upstairs because window seat downstairs were taken. Our plastic table cloth on table was sticky and smelled of a dirty dish rag. Our waitress was very pleasant but did not like the stairs to climb up and had difficulty doing so. Our water was never refilled and we rarely saw her. Our shrimp dishes were extremely pungent in odor and not fresh. My sons perch was the same. Too fishy not fresh. This was not a pleasant dining experience especially for a special occasion.

    My husband and I went to the Real Seafood Company in Toledo to celebrate my birthday. Food was excellent and our server, Andrew, was excellent. Only disappointing factor was the fact that my birthday is July 24th, but we could only go to the restaurant on July 21st. Since we were not there on my actual birthday, the Real Seafood Company would not let me have the birthday discount. Otherwise, very good experience.

    The Real Seafood restaurant is consistently good dining. It's an especially good value on your birthday with half-off food when two are dining. It's my husband's top choice in the area for fried perch, but my fav is the George's Bank Lemon Sole. And as a friend once said: "The crab cakes are to die for!".

    I dined here for an anniversary and it was delicious. I'm 18 and no one looked down on my boyfriend and I because we were young, and that is much appreciated. I wish we could have reserved an outside table though, because we were given an inside seat right away but we would have had to wait 30 minutes for an outdoor seat even though we had a reservation.

    We've eaten here 3 times now for special occasions and never been disappointed. Very crowded but wait was less than 10 minutes and our food arrived in less than 20 minutes. And it was amazing! The Lake Superior whitefish was cooked to perfection. The shrimp scampi was tasty and plentiful and the pan fried perch truly a delight. These entrees were all under $25 each and came with potatoes and salad or veggie or soup. The bread brought to the table was hot and delicious. Nice wine selection but not elaborate. We brought a guest from Atlanta and she was blown away by the meal. Real Seafood is a Toledo gem!

    We had a night as a family -- which is often rare -- so we decided to live it up. We were not disappointed. Food was fantastic, as always, although I had hoped for another special entree or two to add to the regular menu. The dinner rolls are without a doubt my favorite bread anywhere!! The calamari is always excellent and my husband said his seafood alfredo was the best he's ever had (and he travels for a living and eats a LOT of places!!). All in all, a great night!
