Real Seafood Company - Ann Arbor
This was our third and most likely last visit to Real Seafood. The place is disgustingly dirty - floor, chairs, tables. Men’s restroom urinal was overflowing. I can’t imagine the condition of areas behind closed doors..
We liked the idea of the way they served the course meal so we didn’t get full so fast. However, our clams were over cooked and grainy and my expensive lobster dish was beyond over cooked, tough, chewy, and overall disappointing. Even my boyfriend’s shrimp was over cooked and tough, and his crab cake and stuffed trout was bland and flavorless. I wish I sent my dinner back but we were already there waiting for over 2 hours so there wasn’t a point.
This is our favorite place to go, especially for a special occasion, like Valentine's Day. It was a busy night, which made it a bit more noisy and we happened to be near a table with young children - no one's fault. We certainly will return as we have done many times over our 41 years in Ann Arbor. Justine did a great job - he was both personal and professional.
Great food, very good service. The restaurant was crowded, but the service was excellent.
First experience....Very pleased all the way around.. Service, food was Great...Will visit again...With hopes of the same...
The Real Seafood Co. was nothing short of excellent. We were very impressed with our server Damien. He was personable and efficient. It was my first time dining in. Being a food blogger and you tuber, I had many questions regarding the menu and ingredients. Damien was very helpful and accommodating. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. I will be making a video and writing an article on the amazing experience I’ve had. I will also be featuring the restaurant on all of my social media platforms. We will be returning for regular dining, and we will be requesting Damien.
Thank you, Real Seafood Co!

the place needs a good update ! food good....service good, but the restaurant seems old, haggard and worn
Very good . Waiter was excellent!
Want on a Daddy Daughter date this past Saturday evening, we frequent here and per usual the meal was great (Filet with Caesar salad and Manhattan Clam Chowder, we had our favorite server Mike who is always very good. We like the new set up after they got rid of a lot of booths and painted ceiling darker, more open feel but not as bright. The GM Barb stopped and talked with us for a while like she typically does when we dine there, we always get a good meal and great service when we dine here.
Our waiter forgot to order our drinks multiple times and also forgot to bring other items we requested. He needed multiple reminders. Our entrees were mediocre.
There was some confusion with their written Menu not clarified by the waiter. There a Chilean Sea Bass entrée with a side on the menu as well as a Chilean Sea Bass fillet served w/o an entrée at the top of the menu that I failed to read. When I ordered the dish I assumed it was with the side but received a small fillet piece. Two desserts was served with 3 spoons for four people and other minor service gaps.
Loved it. Brussels sprouts are just as good without the sweet glazes for those on Keto. Scallops are my faves. Hubby had t- bone with shitake mushrooms, oh so good. Service was outstanding. Happy happy birthday to me!!
All was good. A hair in an oyster turned my wife off so I got to eat the other 11.
One of my favorite spots. Food is always excellent, love the bar, many superb waitstaff. Had a newbie for this meal, but he was friendly and attentive, if a tad inaccurate -- and I'm sure he'll learn.
We were seated in a corner with large groups crushing in around us. The wait staff was tripping and I too could barely squeeze out of the corner. The food was ok, but not as good as I remembered it. It was very loud. The iPad menus were dirty and dated.
really enjoyed our meal there - highly recommend as a nice relaxing dining experience with creative well prepared food.
Excellent meal as always! We've been going there for about 30 years and it's always enjoyable!
The food is beyond amazing. They are quick with the orders but not once did they rush my family and I. Waitress was well spoken ndvery friendly and from start to finish I have no complaints.
Our server was beyond excellent. Attentive and never left used plates on the table. He even found us some carrot cake!
My skewers of shrimp and scallops were luke warm at best. Disappointing.
Always delicious and birthday lunch is a great deal. Shrimp Scampi and Crab Cake outstanding
Great evening. Loved the food. The waiter, James, Was very nice and attentive. Great food.
We have been dining at The Real Seafood for years, even after we moved 4 hours away from Ann Arbor where we lived for 30 years. Our birthdays are one day apart, so we celebrate the occasion here when we are in town because of the generous birthday discount and especially the wonderful fish and seafood dishes.
The fettuccine with clams was a stand out. The pasta was fresh and cooked perfectly.
THE BEST CRAB LEGS AND VALUE AROUND!! Always great service too!!
Outstanding food and service as always.
Great place, awesome food!! 2 complaints- went for my husband’s bday but because it was only one day before his actual birthday, they wouldn’t give the discount...disappointing. A bit noisy too and close seating so hard to have much conversation. Otherwise, we love this place!
Great food and wonderful service.
Pam, our waitress was pushing us hard at every step to move along. She obviously wanted the tables to turn over quickly. I was there for a business dinner and this was more than annoying as she intruded on our discussions and lessened the enjoyment.
Food was okay. Mixed bag. the sea bass, shanghai style was good. Shrimp cocktails okay but snails were delicious. Crab cakes mushy.
Nice Atmosphere, Good Food and Great Service. Our Waiter Shawn was friendly and very helpful on helping us decide, on what we wanted to order. We will definitely go back!!
Love the local sourcing. Food is fresh and delicious Service was great.
restaurant week meant the entire place was booked! so we popped into the bar and had a delightful time, all the space we could need and great service. delicious - every single time!
Good flavor of seafood, I like them. Only one point is that the dessert is too sweet for me.
Celebrating a friend's birthday. We had a great time, excellent service (thank you Shawn!) and the food was beyond delicious. We go there often for happy hour and always enjoy ourselves. We would recommend Real Seafood Company for any occasion.
Went for a birthday and restaurant week. We both got the salmon restaurant week special. Mussel appetizers were good, but salmon was totally forgettable. Vegetable with the salmon was pasty and tasteless. Also unrecognizable. Salmon was the quality I would expect at a dining event, not a superior restaurant. Rice was totally bland, flavorless, and uninspired. If it wasn't for the 50% birthday discount, I would have been very upset at spending $80 on this meal.
Service was good
Great selection of seafood, excellently prepared. Our server was very knowledgeable and happy to describe and recommend popular items.
We had a great waitress and the food was really good. We go back every year for my husband's birthday. If you love seafood, you'll love Legal Seafood.
Lige that the food and kitchen are “all from scratch” and that sourcing is local. All restaurants should follow this example which is good for the customer, the restaurant, the community and the planet
Another enjoyable meal at Real Seafood. The restaurant week offerings of shrimp and salmon were well received by the family. Service was below what we have come to expect. Could be due to the promotional week. Overall pleased with our visit
