REAL Disappointing. A lot of talk about how fresh the fish is and the “chef” but then it all tastes like red lobster - except you are paying good restaurant prices. When a seafood restaurant features blue point oysters and a combo plate it is not for real seafood lovers. Family restaurant fair.

We had a great time at Real Seafood celebrating a birthday. Food was excellent and the service was fantastic. The restaurant was not very busy and the noise was low. A great place to go to celebrate a birthday or special occasion.

We celebrated a special birthday and had great service. The food was good except for my daughters avocado salad. She was expecting an entree salad and instead got 3 pieces of bib lettuce on a plate with a little avocado spread and some shredded crab. It was ridiculously priced at $18.95 and was not worth that for what she got. She left hungry and unhappy. It would have been helpful if the waiter made her aware of the lightness of the salad and possibly offered something else.

Our server, Tyler, was great! The raw oysters and fried calamari were superbe, the paella left much to be desired. Not much to speak of in the way of seasoning, the seafood seemed overcooked. For being deemed the best fish place in Ann Arbor, I would expect this dish to be better (or just consider removing it from the menu and highlight your far superior dishes).

The outing was for my mother and my daughters birthday. It was my daughters 1st time trying lobster ( that was funny), she enjoyed it. My mother is hard to please (when other people are cooking), but she enjoyed it as well. Thank you guys .

Miso sea bass is one of the best if not the best dish that I've had. Third time I've had it there. I come from out of town--was in Ann Arbor for a basketball reunion.

Disappointed that they have decided to not have the coconut cream pie on the menu any more. But the chocolat mousse is extremely good. Always like going there when I come back to town.

Waitstaff very friendly, which is the only bright spot. Food was marginal at best. Mostly bland and uninspired menu. Restaurant is a bit raggedy and needs updating. Sorry for the bad review - if the food had been good the rest wouldn’t matter.

We had an excellent dinner for my wife's 70th birthday and surprisingly received an unsolicited and VERY generous discount. The food was excellent, the presentation superb, and the evening was topped off by viewing the ice carving just beyond the sidewalk window.

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.

It was Valentine's Day, so the restaurant was very busy. Given how busy it was, the service was okay. We had the specials which seemed like they had been made in advance and mass produced. I've been to Real Seafood a couple of times in the past months and noticed that the food and service have been just so-so. The food and service had been so good in the past. The quality doesn't seem to be as high recently.
