Great atmosphere for our dinner for a girls’ night out. Wonderful atmosphere, amazing service, and delicious food. There were a few hiccups in the food and drinks, but the staff was very quick to make things right.

Although our order we pre-ordered before arrival was not seen until after we arrived- the staff was very friendly and apologetic and got our food out in a very timely manner. I love this restuarant and will continue bringing business lunches here!

Went on my birthday. The service was attentive. The raw oysters were amazing. The crab chowder was good, but a bit spicy for the delicate crab. We were really looking forward to their lobster bisque, which we were told was seasonal (though I remember having it on my birthday last year). Bob had the whitefish with mashed potatoes and green beans. I had the scallops with mashed potatoes and fried green tomatoes. Both were very good. We split the huge dessert of peanut butter cake and ice cream. The one complaint I have, and I should have remembered this, but we were gone for the winter. The booth seats are way too low for the tables, and although the other end was a bit higher, it wasn't high enough. I don't know if the stuffing needs renewal or it needs a height adjustment, but it needs something. I ended up sitting in a chair next to Bob, which meant I was facing kind of a wall. Even though we had a nice window location, this made it awkward. I've sat at a number of booths in the past and always feel I'm sitting way too low. That said, we did enjoy our meal, but next time no booth.

This was my 2nd time here. Just like the first time was excellent. Nice place that overlooks the river, and that gives it a nice relaxing feeling. Food was very good. Had the Dyamite Shrimp with I was very good along with the Halibuit.

We made a reservation about 24 hours before but there was still a wait once we checked in - understandably because it was the first nice day we’ve had so it seemed like the whole town was out and about! The manager came over and offered us a free drink and apologized about the wait which was so nice and hospitable! Once we were seated the food and service was AMAZING!! We had the best night thanks to RSC starting it out right!! Love this place and can’t wait to go back!

I had the Samon and it was delicious. My husband enjoyed the perch dinner. Our waitress Billy Jo was very attentive and helpful. It was our first time at Real Seafood Restaurant and would recommend this place . Our only disappointment was the seating. The two top table was crowded and awkward.

The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Our server went above and beyond by coming outside even after we had cashed out to help us with taking a group photo. He did this without us even asking him. He must have seen us struggling to take a selfie. Thank you so much for helping us capture the memory of our daughter's birthday celebration with a beautiful sunset photo at the edge of the river!

I enjoy every time, but my birthday is best. How could anyone pass up a free fresh seafood dinner?

As per usual, we started out with oysters at the bar before dinner. Excellent!

We have an annual seafood binge on the east coast every fall. Real Seafood matches any seafood on our binge.

Thank you for serving Bay City.

Our table was waiting at our reservation time. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful about gluten-free options, with just the right amount of attentiveness. The food was presented beautifully and was very good. Noise level was not super quiet, but we could easily hear each other across the large round table (party of 6). I loved the electronic (tablet) menus, with in-depth descriptions of each dish with just a tap on the screen.

Our server never asked if we were navigating the menu okay. We asked a question about a menu item and she told us to just click on it. She was not attentive at all.

The food was amazing and one of the managers did check on us.

Reservations for 7:15pm, we were not seated until 8:00pm. Manager came by and treated us to a beverage, without any complaints from us. Our Chilean Seabass and Seafood Alfredo were spectacular. I am sure the patio seating in the summer time is a special view and treat. The wait staff were very attentive. We will return and highly recommend.

Server Caleigh was great, food was good. We Had stuffed Atlantic Salmon. Crab cakes fried Brussels sprouts and kale and quinoa salad. Only disappointment was that the manager person went to every table to conversate with all guests tables on upper section except ours. Hate to think it was because we were different from the majority of guests. All other dealings with serving staff and other was very good. Besides that hiccup it was a good experience.

My wife and I celebrated my 71st birthday. I had the Pecan Crusted Chicken and she had a fish dish. Both were good. I was a little disappointed with the chicken mainly because the chicken portion between the pecan crusted coating was very thin. (It still had a good favor)
