Ordered a dinner ask about Brussels sprouts as a side waiter never mentioned this was not a side so he charged for an appetizer. I had shrimp and then did not even get a side because I paid 10.00 extra for the appetizer ask the waiter when I realized what had been done he was indifferent so basically I got shrimp and coleslaw as a dinner. Portions are reAlly small as well.

I ordered hot tea. When it came it had a Gordon Food teabag. I asked the waitress if they had a better tea. She walked away without a word. My elderly aunt was with me. We were sitting in the corner booth. I have food issues and asked a lot of guestions about the food. I am allergic to butter or grease. We ordered. Never came back to check on us. Two adults and a handicap child was seated behind us. The child started rocking back and forth, kicking the lower half and pounding the back of the booth. This went on for several minutes. I called the waitress over and asked if she could speak to them. It was upsetting my Aunt. She walked right by them. I walked up to the host and told him about the problem too. He went over and mentioned it. The next moment the host brought me three meals in a bag and said they were comp. Looked at me. Said wrong table. The waitress hugged the three as they left with their free meals. She brought the dessert menu and sat it on the table and walked away. When I received my bill I wrote “nicer and more smiles would have gotten you a larger tip”. I left a very small tip which I felt was more than I should have left. I usually leave 20-25% because my daughter was a waitress. Why the host sat a child in a dark corner of the restaurant when he would have been happier near the window watching the cars go by. Second, no one said a thing to us about our experience. No sorry or anything. My Aunt threw out her lunch because it was undercooked but eat her wonderful carry out salad for dinner. I became ill on the way home on M 14 and had to pull off. There was butter in something I ate. Would you say this was an enjoyable afternoon?????

We had a very enjoyable birthday celebration.
It started with special oysters, and delicious clams.
The house salad was fresh and tasty. Lobster and filet was excellent, cooked to order. Dessert of key lime pie topped it off. They have a great birthday deal, on your actual birthday. Enjoy!

Very poor service. Appetizers came before drinks, no bread as requested, entrees slow, food just warm, waitress made excuses. Overpriced for mediocre experience.

For the price, the food was mediocre at best. My haddock was super plain and room temp, same for my husbands scallops. Very disappointed, we hadn’t been in years and now I remember why. Service is excellent, just need to food to match

Overall, food and ambiance was good. We sat in bar area & service was excellent. Problem was food took far too long to arrive and once it did it was only room temperature. Food price was high for what was received, but was still very tasty. No problem with the quality of food. Good food, drinks & experience, but thought it was overpriced.

Food was fine. Priced slightly high but it is Ann Arbor. This is second time we have had this server, rude, nasty, rolled her eyes couple times. My son over heard her say to another server..."fu#cking people, God!" Referring to both our table and the one behind us. She walked away while we were ordering and talking to her. We told the manager and he did apologize but received no discount, free dessert, anything at all. Spent approx $100 and felt very dissatisfied upon leaving. Worst experience at this reataurant ever and Ive been eating here since I was a child (im 47 now.) Never again! You lost a long time customer. Shame on you!

We go to Real Seafood at least 12-15 times a year since moving to the Ann arbor area from Boston about 3 years ago, and this restaurant easily matches most of the best we used to be able to get in Boston. Quality of food is excellent but service is always as good as, if not better, than the service we used to experience in Boston. High recommend!

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.
