    As usual, everything we ordered was delicious and prepared to order. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, so we treated ourselves to shrimp cocktails, which were large and fresh. We both had the filet and lobster tail. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the lobster was so sweet it didn't need to be dipped in the butter. We shared a Creme Brulee, that is still the best in the city! Only disappointment was the wine list. Bottles of Cabernet Savignon went from in the $30 to over $100. I would think they could do better than that. We did have the "highlighted" wine, which was less expensive, but just ok in flavor.

    My parents, brother, fiancé and I went for my parents 35th anniversary and were sadly disappointed. Three of us had the Maine lobster and they said they were tough and overlooked, mediocre at best. There was a big issue with a latex allergy and that left a member of our party without food for good while. I had the steak and while it was cooked to med rare as I asked, it was tough to chew and I feel like a $10 steak at Texas Roadhouse was more enjoyable. Our fries sides were very disappointing and everything was bland. We all thought for the price it wasn't worth it. We will not be returning and have told a few people how disappointed we were. Our waitress was decent enough but she couldn't make up for the food. Sorry to be so harsh.

    We arrived at the reservation time of 5:30pm to a pretty empty restaurant and no hostess or anyone willing to come and let us know if we were suppose to seat ourselves. Hostess showed up from outside a few minutes later, told her we had a reservation she said this time of year there was no need. Sat us at seating by fireplace which was really nice. Waiter was great and attentive. We order Calamari for an appetizer and it was great, had the Crab Cakes and the Ahi Tuna for main entree. Crab cakes and hash browns very good but not the best, Ahi Tuna lacking some flavor. We waited excessively for our entrees, it was lobsterfest that night and I guess if you didn't order the special you had a long wait. Would still visit again.

    My husband took me here for my birthday and what a great time we had. Our waiter, Andrew, was very informative, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The dinner was amazing, compliments to the chef! I must say, we have had fresh seafood at a lot of restaurants, including right on the ocean front, but this South African Cold Water Lobster was cooked to perfection. Our whole dinner experience was wonderful. We had been here for lunch so we thought it would be nice for dinner. We will be back.

    I went there for a friend's birthday. They slash the bill in half for 1-2 people dining if you go on your birthday. We had a wonderful server, Steve. He allowed us to move from a table where the sun was in our eyes to a booth. He was very attentive and we didn't want for anything. My guest had a sirloin which was delicious and cooked to perfection. I had the chef's special - encrusted brown sugar salmon. It was wonderful. I brought my own cake and there were no complaints. My guest was allowed to pick a free birthday dessert to take home. We had a really nice time.

    We hadn't ben to the Real Seafood in years, went to celebrate our anniversary. First thing I noticed was the worn tabletop, I don't think they have been refinished in the twenty plus years the restaurant has been here, could have used a nice tablecloth. But our meal was excellent, if not a little rushed between salad and entries.

The Calamari, the hot rolls and the salad's all rock. My Stuffed Flounder dinner was one of the best I have ever had.

    We had a great lunch 10 days earlier which prompted the dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Service was horribly slow while the restaurant was not very busy. Waitress did what she could to accommodate. Food was not very palatable. My wife did thoroughly enjoy the Crab cake. Beef was overcooked and under seasoned. The birthday discount was generous and appreciated, but even that did not compensate for the deficiencies. Previous reviews led us to believe that the manager would not "make things right".

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It is pricey, so we save it for special nights out. the food is good, we go there when we have extra cash to splurge on seafood; you can count on your meal to be well-prepared. Live music is usually decent; nice to see a venue where the house will hire live musicians. It is always crowded, so don't be in a hurry. We always give up on trying to sit near the windows for the view, as there always seem to be some pretty uptight folks who make requesting a window seat a contest. Be sure to ask for a table away from a main aisle if you want to avoid someone rushing past your table every three seconds.
