This is a nicely appointed restaurant located on the banks of the Maumee river. The menu features a wide selection of fish, seafood and steaks. Large assortment of appetizers, salads and healthy options. In other words, something for everyone.
The weather was dreary on the day of our visit, but there was a cozy fire inside. There is outside seating but not on this day. It has to be spectacular in summer though.
Our server was excellent, food was delivered promptly, at the right temperature and attractively plated.
I took my girlfriend out for a late birthday dinner
One of our favorite places to eat in Toledo...always great food and staff is excellent!
We love it here!!! Not only for special occasions but for anytime.
Food was good but not hot. Several things were sent back and others just tolerated it. This is not the norm for Real Seafood so hoping only a one time occurrence.
The food was only so-so. We both had steak with sides of seafood. Both steaks were tender, but tasteless. My date did not enjoy her steak at all. My perch was OK and she enjoyed her shrimp. The place was very loud - difficult to hold a conversation and the wait staff was overloaded, as a result the sevice suffered. Jack was nice enough but had little time to explain the menu, discuss options and rarely had time to check in on us. It took a while to get drinks and order an appetizer. Can’t recommend this location - it sure seemed like it had potential, but sadly it was somewhat of a let down. We should have ate at the casino.
Regrettably, the lobster in both our dishes (crab-stuffed lobster tails and paella Veracruziana) were somewhat over-cooked. The rest of the food was cooked perfectly. The manager did comp us our appetizer and a dessert to compensate.
Food was very good!! Our waiter was great as well! They have many seafood choices and also have chicken and steak as well. The Lobster bites were amazing!! We made a reservation and we were seated at the exact time. There were quite a few full tables so I knew the food must be good.. and it was!! I have been here in the summer and sat outside for lunch with my family. Very nice!!
The service was excellent--we were quickly and graciously moved to another table when originally seated by an open fire place--just a bit to warm. Service was prompt but not rushed and both of our fish dishes were perfectly prepared--moist, flacky and fresh. The sides were appealing--the bread was warm , tasty and we requested a half order as it is very seductive. All in all a very pleasant dining experience.
We have dined here many times and have never been disappointed. Great view and great staff.
This has become an annual dinner for myself and several friends. I really need to try something other than the scallops!
We had wonderful service and the food was fantastic!!! Can’t wait to come back again for dinner! We loved the happy hours specials!
Second time celebrating here and the food and service was perfect once again. A fantastic place to go - best in Toledo!
Great atmosphere for intimate dining.
We usually have a great experience at Real Seafood. Unfortunately, my husband became violently ill a few hours after eating their Paella. That was the only thing he had eaten that day. There were 4 of us, he was the only person to get sick.
It's a shame, their food is usually so good, I love their Sole.
Love the birthday deal. Bri Hess was an exceptional server.
Absolutely amazing service and experience ! The food was exceptional !
A mother/daughter weekend with dinner at Real Seafood. Delicious swordfish, stuffed flounder, and the 1/2 off bottle of Franciscan chardonnay went well with everything.
Love Real Seafood... great location, good menu, great quality and consistency! Haley was very accommodating to all of our requests...
Great food awesome service and hospitality had a enjoyable experience and time
My husband & I both got King Crab & we were very disappointed- they were much smaller than usual, hard to crack open and cold. We usually go to the Real Seafood in Ann Arbor and have always been very happy with the King Crab served there.
Very good seafood. The menu is and food is very consistent.
It was a 65th birthday and everything was going good. Then our server said that entree’s were served with a blue cheese cold slaw. That is probably ok with some but not us. We were told that we could get other things instead, but there would be a $2.95 additional charge. I found that a little unsettling since their prices were steep to begin with. I felt there should have been other options such as cottage cheese or applesauce or a small house salad. Everything else was fine with our dinner, taste was delicious and steaks cooked to perfection. After dinner we ordered a coffee drink , and we were surprised to see that there was no whipped cream on the top. We thought about sending them back for some but figured that by the time we would get them back they would be lukewarm. Last thought, Andrew was excellent, would recommend him to anyone
Went there for my wife's birthday, everything met our expectations. Our waitress Sarah was outstanding in service and knowledge. Food was exceptional, we travel often, enjoy our sea food, just got back from Florida, and this was some of the best we had experienced. Cudo's to the chef and entire staff.
Impeccably clean restaurant with excellent service and a beautiful view. The food is amazing with healthy seafood and steak choices in addition to perfect desserts. Fireplace seating is great for parties of two! Real Seafood is perfect for dates, celebrations, or just an excellent meal! The restaurant manager is top-notch and continuously engaged with guests.
We went to the Real Seafood for my husband's birthday. The birthday deal is wonderful, food was delish! Can't wait to go back.
The server arrived approximately 5 minutes
We had clam chowder, a whole lobster and grilled mahi mahi. Everything was delicious (including the rolls) and the service was excellent!
Great food and amazing service! Great lunch and birthday celebration!
Real Seafood is definitely a Toledo gem! Great food, excellent atmosphere and service!
Fantastic as ever!
As in January we are disappointed in the removal of the carrot cake as a dessert item. Also this visit our Dynamite shrimp was not longer Dynamite and it disappointed us that it came off more as a breaded shrimp app.
Celebrated my son’s 18th birthday and had a delicious meal along with great company. Our waitress Brianna was excellent.
Nice dining experience. The food was very good. Service was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxing and calming for an evening out with friends. We didn’t feel rushed as we had drinks, an appetizer and then ordered our main entrees. The menu was extensive with plenty of seafood dishes as well as steaks. Our table had all seafood entrees and everyone complemented their meals. We will definitely choose this again for dinner another time.
The service was great as in the past, but we were a little disappointed in the food prep this time. The seared Ahi tuna which was wonderful in the past was way undercooked and had to be sent back for additional cooking. The rib steak was just average. We’ll still give Real Seafood another shot...maybe just a bad night.
This is one of the few restaurants in town where it is very obvious that the waitstaff undergoes
training toward becoming proficient at their jobs. As usual, we (four of us) were very pleased with the knowledge, attitude, and friendliness of our waiter.
Everything was perfect. All of our dinners were delicious. Service was excellent. The only
disappointment was our birthday person didn’t receive the usual birthday dessert. We have been coming to Real Seafood for years and the birthday guest always looked forward to
the birthday dessert. It was not a big deal but still a disappointment.
The food was fantastic. Our server Lisa was great, she knew the menu, answered all our questions, she is very good at her job.
The Real Seafood never disappoints. The food and the service was excellent.
