If it's May 22 - I know where I going to dinner. Dining at the Real Seafood Company in Ann Arbor has been my Birthday tradition for YEARS! A little pricey, yup, but so worth it. The fish - THE BEST! And . . . the White Fish has been on the menu for over 20 years - Superb! I recommend RSC every chance I get.

Second trip for lunch with family. Great service, great food. Sat outside, noise not bad even on Main St. Had the lobster roll which was as good as any I had in Boston. Others complimented the Manhattan chowder soup and Parmesan encrusted lemon sole. Crab cake "DEE-Licious". Took me awhile to figure out how to work the parking meter but did. Will definitely return for more lunches and dinners

We ate at the bar (our choice) and enjoyed an excellent meal. The chef really knows how to cook fish! It’s easy to overcook trout but this version was moist and properly grillled. Good wine list, great bartender who checked with us frequently to see how we were doing in the midst of a crazy ‘ladies night’ promotion.

The seafood was very fresh. Service was excellent. Wines by the glass are good and reasonably priced.

Everything was perfect- except - we reserved a seat either outside or in the atrium and were originally seated inside. It was worked out and we were able to sit outside, but when you are celebrating a special occasion and a special request is made, it would be nice to honor it. (The host implied I did not make a seating request.)

Thanks for a yummy meal! Waited ages for our reservation but we had a nice time in the bar. 40 minutes waiting time should have translated to a drink on the house? Will be back but maybe in a while!

Service was great! Nice options for food and wine pairings. The seafood was very fresh! ~ Best coleslaw we've ever had , we loved that it was not at all sweet! :-) The seafood gazpacho was also excellent !

It was extraordinarily loud and it seemed everyone was being shoved into a back room. We were in the farthest corner with large parties of people talking louder than necessary indoors, the waitstaff constantly left a tray of dirty plates next to our table essentially blocking us in and someone from the staff repeatedly slammed something down at their station at the other end of the booths making a loud bang. The food was good overall but the ambiance was severely lacking and the staff seemed a bit too stressed and short.

I was taken here for Mother's Day.
Huge disappointment.
Server was less than helpful, didn't seem like he wanted to be there.
Food was cold, sour and over cooked.
Loud, sat in the very back of the restaurant after passing many open tables.
Very over priced for the portions.
Never again.
Sad, it used to be a nice place.

Have been here 4 or 5 times over the years and it is always a good experience. The only problem is that there are so many good choices in downtown Ann Arbor and I want to try them all. But I know you can never go wrong here. We had crabcakes as well as the jambala And we recommend them highly.

A very mixed experience. A special request for our party was nicely handled. Manager attentive at times but staff and kitchen were extremely slow. Good appetizer and fish and chips but fresh catch meals weren’t fresh or a catch. Disappointing

Our party of six were enjoying a birthday celebration.The service started a little slow,and the food took a bit to come out. Granted it was a full house in a Friday night.
The food was not a disappointment at all! Everything was prepared perfectly from appetizer to entrees. Worth the wait, it gave our party more time for conversation.
Real Sea Food has been a birthday tradition for almost a decade for our group and we look for many more!

It was very noisy. There was just two of us, so they stuck us against a wall between two loud parties. No one could see us so it took a while to even get greeted. Had to even wait for water. We were ready to order by the time we got our drinks. The crab cakes were delicious, but the legs were pre-cut so the water made the meat tough. The drinks were good. It was our anniversary, not that anybody bothered to ask. I thought this place would be special, but it's just another overpriced seafood restaurant. Wouldn't recommend; Even though the food was good, the ambiance and service made it not worth it.

A little bit pricey, but the amount of fish you get is worth the price. Also like the option of being able to have bottled Fiji water.
