My family has come here many times. The food is okay and the service is great. Seafood is fresh and the portion size is average. A little pricey though. We went on a sunday for lunch and paid dinner prices.

Real Seafood is a go-to for fresh, tasty fish and seafood. It is a little on the pricey side, so many people reserve it for a special occasion dinner or business lunch.

We've been going here for the past 15 years mostly for the birthday special. The service has always been wonderful. The food, though, has been lacking lately, especially considering the price. We typically celebrate birthdays with the surf and turf (filet&lobster). The lobster was good but the filet was "mealy" and lacked taste. I had the sweet potatoes and they... More

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.

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
