We visit Real Seafood twice a year, for my birthday and my wife's birthday. WE would go much more often but Real Seafood is much more affordable when the birthday person's meal is free. We have to be there on the day, which we always are. The food is always wonderful and it is a great place to celebrate birthdays... More

I like the Real Seafood. Always wondered why/when it was named. As I have eaten here for over three decades starting way before fresh seafood was at all common in the Midwest I always assumed it may have been the first spot in town regularly flying fish in from the East Coast fisheries. Regardless, simple fish, fresh and prepared how... More

OK, this is decent seafood for Michigan. We had king crab legs and while they were expensive, they were also good....so you kinda get what you pay for. Other entrees around us all looked good too.

It's difficult to find good seafood in Ann Arbor, and this will be one of your choice. Though the quality is not super good, it is acceptable with fair price.

Very good seafood can be found here. The lunch menu is quite inclusive at a reasonable price. The overall dining environment is pleasant as is the service, I found the Lake Superior white fish to be outstanding. This is a good place to stop prior to Michigan football.

The Real Food Co. has great seafood but expect to pay for it.....it's not cheap. Portions are good, atmosphere is very pleasant.

We had dinner recently on homecoming weekend. The restaurant was packed and we had a 7:45pm reservation. Dinner was delicious, but our waitress was inexperienced to the point of providing significantly inconsistent service. The wine was delivered to our table 30 minutes late. Our food order was recorded incorrectly, and the wrong fish preparation was served. That being said, the... More

Because it was Homecoming Football Saturday, we had a 50 minute wait but it was a shorter wait than the Italian restaurant next door which had a 1 1/2 hour wait. We come from Los Angeles so food did not seem that pricey at all. Our server was good and honest when he told us that the Lobster Fest was... More

Went out with my sister for the Lobster Fest and although we normally love this place the lobster was lacking. We each got a shell of a lobster on top of our dishes but the only lobster was one claw. Really? For what we paid it should have been more than that. Not looking to going back for this special.... More

We've been to this restaurant several times and we've always come out with the same feeling, it's pricey but good. Dishes you would expect to see at a seafood restaurant. This place tends to be a bit more upscale than your average seafood restaurant. Great for a date night or special occasion. For a casual get together, I would suggest... More
