At 40 bucks an entrée, I have a few expectations. Real Seafood met none of them. The service is non existent. a tablet on your table so the server can minimize interaction. The server had ZERO knowledge of any menu items. When I inquired about the fresh oysters, She made a few taps on the tablet and walked away. Left... More

Server was well-meaning, but totally untrained. They serve WARM red wine in tiny glasses, need to be reminded to bring bread, bring the appetizers before the wine, etc. Maryland style crab cake was quite good with little filler. Lake whitefish needed more flavor & seasoning. The accompanying salad was fine.

While there's not a lot of menus choices, the choices are varied and very good. The New England baked dinner is my favorite - lobster, clams, and veggies in a pot where they are steamed together. On the expensive side but to fund fresh ocean seafood in the Midwest is a treat.

Real Seafood put an 18% gratuity on our tab tonight even though everyone at our table received "separate checks" - and those two words were even put on the bill. I tip well and would normally have no problem with 18% if it were my decision. But the server at Real Seafood knows that they are going to get an... More

MY entire family enjoys the Real Seafood Co. and eat there regularly l not just on special occasions.The service is always outstanding as is the food. The paella is especially good but I really enjoy the scallops. My wife loves the clam chowder and I the oyster stew.

Real Seafood has been a staple of Ann Arbor for many years serving great food at reasonable prices. We stumbled into happy hour pricing with our early dinner time and ended up eating in the bar area to take advantage of the discounts on appetizers, oysters, and drink specials. Our server was awesome, very engaging and helped us with making... More

Ann Arbor has many very good restaurants but the Real Seafood Co. is by far one of the best, most consistent of the group. I think I have had almost every fish item on the menu -- and I have never been disappointed. (I have not tried anything but seafood) If you are looking for a top notch seafood dinner... More
