My friend and I came here for my birthday because of the birthday deal (50% off the whole receipt excluding drinks). We ended up spending about a total of $65-75 including tip.

We got four appetizers and one entree to share because it comes with the blue cheese cole slaw everyone has talked about (which I actually wasn't blown away by, but it was still good).

Appetizer 1) Pan Fried Jumbo Lump Blue Crab Cakes $12.95*
Appetizer 2) Tuna Tartare $13.95
Appetizer 3) Crispy Fried Brussels Sprouts $10.95*
Appetizer 4) Point Judith Calamari $13.95
*absolute favorites/would order again

Entree: George's Bank Natural Sea Scallops broiled $28.95

Drinks: Sangria and House Gin & Tonic
-both were okay, not the best though

First off, the server (I think his name was William) was great and explained the menu and specials there well since it was our first time there. The starter bread here is AMAZING. It's warm and fresh. It reminded me of a biscuit flavor in a bread, paired perfectly with the butter. I'm a sucker for good bread at restaurants.

The appetizers came out all at once and by far, the crab cakes were my favorite. They were full of flavor and had good chunks of crab meat as well. The Brussels sprouts were my second favorite and was a perfect green dish to eat on the side. The calamari and tuna tartare were mediocre at best. I probably wouldn't order them again.

The scallops were great for the first bite. The butter flavor definitely stood out and the scallops were perfectly broiled and a great texture. However, it was a bit salty, which was probably why you needed the cole slaw on the side to balance it out. We ordered the hash browns as its accompaniment and I liked the crispiness.

TLDR- Would recommend going here for a birthday (must be day of because they'll ask for ID), but I think it'd be overpriced to go here on a normal day. Might come back for their happy hour though, we'll see. Thanks again Real Seafood Co!

We were celebrating both a family wedding anniversary as well as my husband's birthday. Real Seafood never disappoints. It is also nice they accept reservations so we can be seated on arrival.

Our server was amazing (I feel terrible I don't remember her name!! She was training another girl. I think one of them was Nicole....). The food was fantastic! I loved the live music. It was not too loud and the singer had a great voice. They give a free birthday meal if you come in on your actual birthday (they check your ID).

First time here, requested a river view table through open table site...asked about it when they sat us, said that they didn't show that at all? Dinner was good, but not great. I guess for my first time eating here I had higher expectations. Our server was spectacular though. She answered every question I had and was very attentive.

Missy our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Made good recommendations and was very pleasant. Excellent service. Noisy atmosphere. Disappointed in the Brussel sprouts. They were actually unrecognizable as they appeared to have the leaves detached instead of normal shape. All in all an enjoyable evening with good food and great service.

The food was great as always. We are long time patrons. I had lake perch and my wife had a lobster tail. Our server, Jack, (who is a veteran) handled everything perfectly. My only complaint was the choice of music: not my preference, but in any event, it was too loud.

Promptly seated on a rainy Monday night for two.. driving through town and this spot looked nice. This is upscale / casual with price points in the mid-$20/$30. Both fish entrees were very good and service was prompt. 2 cocktails + 2 dinners + tip = $85

Hard time finding a parking space on 9/22 because of 1000 people at docks for canoe races and they parked at the restaurants. We arrived at the RealSeafood at 4:30 pm received menu, water, buns, good waiter, but the noise in the kitchen was extremely loud, along with the music. Told the manager about the noise and they took care of it immediately. Food was excellent-scallops. Went down 9/23 for BDAY dinner and got lobster. Brought out hot lobster along with drawn butter over a candle that was cold. Sent the butter back 2x was never hot. Messed up my $40 dinner, but received a complimentary slice of pie. Also received an email notice from Real Seafood on 9/22 at 5:10pm that we did not make our scheduled appointment to be there at 4:30pm. We were there at 4:25pm. We love Real Seafood.

As always Real Seafood is delicious, the waiter was great and the food selection was awesome. My only recommendation would be to power wash the outside area everyday or at least remove the spiderwebs from under the tables. The outside could use TLC, paint the chip railings, remove chairs that are bent so far back you can’t lean back and take a good look at the over all appearance it needs help. It’s still my favorite place to eat but now that inside was updated perhaps the outside can be classed up.

I am NOT a Seafood fan but the wife is. She was VERY happy with her Cup of Chowder and her Crab Cakes.
My Steak was what a Steak is a Seafood place.
Wasnt bad but wasn't a stand out. I dont knock them for that... Its a SEAFOOD Place not a Steakhouse.
It was the Wife's Birthday Dinner so I made do.
Did enjoy the Sweet & Spicy Calimari though. That was good.
Would I go back, YES.
