We sat upstairs and received fairly good service . Unfortunately they ran out of the sesame tuna dish, so one of our guests had to bow out. The bread didn’t seem as good as usual, a bit greasy . Our server was very pleasant . It was also homecoming so the restaurant was quite busy. Overall, we love the experience and food at this location. Thank you Real Seafood‼️

We have eaten at real seafood multiple times and this was by far our least favorite trip. The server seemed inexperienced even though she said she had been there for 7 months. She was even unable to open the wine bottle resulting in my fiance having to do it. His swordfish was overcooked. Just not as good as it used to be

The food was wonderful, as was the service. I had a question about the birthday discount. It was my understanding that there was a discount on the whole food bill but when I asked about it they said only the birthday person. If that is the current policy they then need to change the information on the website. Nevertheless it was a wonderful evening.

This place never disappoints. We always and I mean always stop here on our way back home from up north.
The views are spectacular. Waitstaff was knowledgeable about menu and bar items. The food was amazing as usual. Had the Mediterranean salad with sides of garlic mashed potatoes and the brussel sprouts (chef roasted them instead of flash frying them for me since I have an allergy.) Kudos to that. Key Lime pie for dessert was amazing. Will definitely keep coming back. Thanks for the wonderful time.

We were a bit disappointed. We have eaten here many times before. This time the service was slow and a bit disjointed. The appetizer, dynamite shrimp were good. But my lobster linguine lacked flavor, lobster, and the pasta was overcooked. My wife had scallops, which were good, but the tater tots were under done, and the seasonal veggies were overcooked. It was not what we had come to expect from Real Seafood.

Very pleasant setting overlooking the river. Might want to ask customers if they wish for some umbrella shade, however, rather than waiting for customers to request it. Food was tasty if pricey. Table service was good.

I am always impressed when I go to Real Seafood for a meal. It's not the cheapest eat in town, but when you're feeling in the mood for some great seafood, this is the spot. Every dish I've had is delicious. Service is always friendly and attentive. Their electronic menus can be a bit overwhelming at first but are extremely informative and helpful once you're familiar with them. Make sure to head there for a discount on your birthday.
