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..

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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

Celebrated a birthday which always includes crab legs! Food was delicious as always at Real Seafood in Ann Arbor. Server seemed very challenged, struggled to open the wine, dropped items on the table and interrupted a nice dinner conversation a couple of times. Not the level of service we have had here in the past.

I had the blackened swordfish, which was overcooked and dry, and also oversalted. The salad had those supermarket tomatoes that have the texture of styrofoam. Service was nice, and the appetizer (brussel sprouts with balsamic vinegar) was good. Prices are high for food that is just so-so.

Waitress was excellent: friendly and helpful. Food was a huge disappointment, especially for the price. The salmon and asparagus that I can get from the deli counter at Whole Foods is much better than this was. This would be about what one might expect from an airline flying international in Economy Class.
