The food is amazing. They don't over season and let the quality food shine. The server and greeter was knowledgeable about food allergies and confirmed with the chefs.

I thought the Brussels sprouts were the best. They were excellent.
Lauren was a very sweet wait person. She was attentive and thoughtful.
We enjoyed ourselves.

Capable of very good food. The shrimp and whitefish entrees were delicious. Brussels sprouts were an interesting and tasty side. Cheesecake is recommendable for its silky texture and simplicity. No idea why a tossed salad is a $2.50 upgrade over cole slaw.

This was one of many meals we have enjoyed at Real Seafood. It is wonderful for a special occasion. The seafood is always wonderfully prepared and the service is attentive without being overbearing. The Blue Plate special, though sounding pedantic, is a wonderful value - a full size crab cake, a skewer with both broiled shrimp and sea scallops and a small piece of stuffed flounder plus two sides. If you want a lighter meal, just order the crab cake appetizer. It's a full size crab cake garnished with a side salad of greens, strawberries and mango with a wonderful balsamic dressing.
The whole range of Main Street Venture Restaurants (including, The Earle, Gratzi and others) are a great deal on an actual birthday. The two of us ate for half price.

Real Seafood is an Ann Arbor iconic restaurant having been on Main street for decades. While our experience was good, it was not great. Food was tasty, served hot and server was good, but nothing was exceptional. For the price, I was expecting a bit more. We did have an extremely noisy toddler at the next table and all the other tables we close and crowded. Thought it would be a little more special, ambiance felt like an average chain restaurant.

My dining experience was very enjoyable thanks to my server Zack. He was extra attentive and provided suggestions for my entree and drinks. Everything was amazing and I will definitely be returning in the near future.

When we sat down we noticed that all of the glasses for water had water drops in them. I asked our server about it and she said that they were busy and didn’t have time to dry them. Well drinking water out of a glass that has water in it from the dish washing machine isn’t very appealing. My date asked for her white fish to be “well done”, it wasn’t. This type of service was not what I would expect from a restaurant like this. I don’t think we’ll be back.

So delicious! My guy and I both loved it, which doesn't always happen. We'll be back!

Been going to this restaurant for years and finally had a less than stellar experience. Waitress was not up to par, steak was charred and items were ordered and forgotten. But to put things into perspective I have been going here for almost 10 years and have never had a bad experience. I will be back soon.

Eric, our server was so kind, friendly and patient. Our food was delicious and it came quickly to our table. It was a little tight as far as the tables were very close together-we sat at a twotop. But it was a very special and delicious Valentines Day!
