We sat outside. It was a bit noisy due to lots of people on a narrow sidewalk. Service was good.
Always have had great meals here. But tonight’s meal, Paella was awful. Dry, mealy fish. Overpriced house wine. What happened Real Seafood???
Excellent appetizers, dinner and atmosphere. Wait staff are very friendly, and the bread is something to die for
Taylor provided excellent service. We enjoyed our dinner and will definitely return.
I tried the "classic entree" crab cakes for the first time and they were outstanding! So were the fresh grilled vegetables that I chose for a side.
Always great for for over 30 years. Tried a couple other supposedly "comparable" spots that did not perform to RSC standards
Good food! I had the stuffed flounder. Try the Tropic-tini martini...I think barkeep's name is Shay. Her Tropic-tini is strong and delicious!
We were meeting old friends we haven’t seen in awhile. Our waitperson was helpful, attentive, and yet sensitive to our need to converse. (I wish I could remember his name!)
Two of us had the fried lake perch, one, the tuna tartare, and one,
the whitefish. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals - delicious!
Food was so so. Was there during restaurant week. Salmon was delicious, but sweet potatoes and asparagus were under cooked. My husband ‘s sea bass miso sauce was too salty. Martini and oysters were tasty! The space is comfortable and it’s nice that the doors open to the sidewalk.
Great place for Seafood. Superb service and atmosphere. I will return.
They offer a great deal on your birthday. 50% off food for two. We saved $40.
Food was ok, nothing great!
Had a very nice dinner on front patio. Service was great, and so was the food. Highly recommend the gazpacho!
Celebrated my dad's birthday. The waitstaff was attentive. The drinks were excellent, Oban 14 and Citrus Mule. Very interesting on a variant of the Moscow Mule. The yellowfin tuna was grilled to perfection as was pan fried perch.
Enjoyed getting together with friends while enjoying great food
Service was excellent and we had a lovely dinner. Would recommend for anyone visiting Ann Arbor.
Great fresh seafood always. If in Ann Arbor, you must try it.
Extraordinarily service. Real Seafood is our go-to place for special occasions or “Grown up “ dinners. They ran out of the dark rum that my husband likes and the bartender offered to go to a local store to get more for him! (They had another excellent dark rum so he chose that; but the offer to get what the customer wanted was indicative of the level of service they consistently show. Thanks for making my husband’s birthday perfect!
They push the most expensive fish option at each table, and it’s not worthy. My steak was really overcooked per the menu guide, but my crab was excellent. *I’ve eaten at other locations where food, ambiance, and service were all better—and our guy was training a new server. (?)
The food - shrimp appetizer, white wine special, oysters, blue plate special were all great. Server was very attentive and polite. No one rushed us. Noise level was better than expected since music is kept at low level. Plus as a birthday boy, I got a free dinner!
Somewhat disappointed compared to previous outings. The oysters were bland, apparently they had been washed out of their salted water. The fried calamare and gaspacho were good as was the paella. The stuffed flounder and salmon were somewhat disappointing: the fish was good but the stuffing tasted mainly like mush. Desserts were very good. The waitress was attentive but a bit over the top. The free entree for a birthday was nice and made up for some of the problems.
There were flies, no busing of the table, and a wait of over an hour for food. The manager was nice and apologetic. Wasn't the best.
Excellent food, as always. The last three times I've been, though, the servers were very inattentive. Which struck me as bizarre because I've been to Real Seafood at least a dozen times before and the service was always top notch. I'll keep going back, but I might be hesitant to take a client or a new date or someone I was very concerned with making sure everything went smoothly.
Overall all four of us had an excellent meal served without delay.
Would suggest being more clear on wines by the glass pricing. My wife ordered the house Chardonnay by the glass, assuming a reasonable price for the house wine(Wente). We were surprised when the check came with a charge of 13.25/glass.
If it's May 22 - I know where I going to dinner. Dining at the Real Seafood Company in Ann Arbor has been my Birthday tradition for YEARS! A little pricey, yup, but so worth it. The fish - THE BEST! And . . . the White Fish has been on the menu for over 20 years - Superb! I recommend RSC every chance I get.
Great! As always.
Second trip for lunch with family. Great service, great food. Sat outside, noise not bad even on Main St. Had the lobster roll which was as good as any I had in Boston. Others complimented the Manhattan chowder soup and Parmesan encrusted lemon sole. Crab cake "DEE-Licious". Took me awhile to figure out how to work the parking meter but did. Will definitely return for more lunches and dinners
We ate at the bar (our choice) and enjoyed an excellent meal. The chef really knows how to cook fish! It’s easy to overcook trout but this version was moist and properly grillled. Good wine list, great bartender who checked with us frequently to see how we were doing in the midst of a crazy ‘ladies night’ promotion.
We had such a wonderful time. We celebrated my husband's birthday and our water Mike was awesome!!!
The seafood was very fresh. Service was excellent. Wines by the glass are good and reasonably priced.
Everything was perfect- except - we reserved a seat either outside or in the atrium and were originally seated inside. It was worked out and we were able to sit outside, but when you are celebrating a special occasion and a special request is made, it would be nice to honor it. (The host implied I did not make a seating request.)
Had a great experience. I highly recommend.
Excellent food, a bit pricey, very articulate and knowledgeable waitperson, excellent food-
Excellent food, excellent ambiance. Always come here for my birthday meal deal.
We had an excellent meal, the bread as always was incredible. The new shrimp appetizer (Dynamite Shrimp) is fantastic. This is always our favorite Main Street Ventures restaurant to celebrate birthdays!
Excellent meal and service on mother's day. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Thanks for a yummy meal! Waited ages for our reservation but we had a nice time in the bar. 40 minutes waiting time should have translated to a drink on the house? Will be back but maybe in a while!
Real Seafood never disappoints. Even changed our reservation to 1.5 hours earlier. Great oysters, great food, great drinks, great service.
Service was great! Nice options for food and wine pairings. The seafood was very fresh! ~ Best coleslaw we've ever had , we loved that it was not at all sweet! :-) The seafood gazpacho was also excellent !
It was extraordinarily loud and it seemed everyone was being shoved into a back room. We were in the farthest corner with large parties of people talking louder than necessary indoors, the waitstaff constantly left a tray of dirty plates next to our table essentially blocking us in and someone from the staff repeatedly slammed something down at their station at the other end of the booths making a loud bang. The food was good overall but the ambiance was severely lacking and the staff seemed a bit too stressed and short.
