“Open veranda delight”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

After a morning of boutiques we were delighted to dine in the open air veranda of this seafood eatery . We were quickly greeted and seated at a prime table giving us a view of the street and inside restaurant . We chose our wine beverages and shrimp cocktail appetizer. We both dined on tuna Niçoise salad . We declined dessert.
An amazing lunch .

“Fun and tasty”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

After a terrific experience at the Real Seafood Company in Toledo, my father and I chose to dine at the original location on THIS Father's Day. Ann Arbor's Main Street is a revitalized strip of shops and many inviting restaurants. Real Seafood Co. has walls open to the sidewalk so if you don't score a table directly on the sidewalk, you can get very close!
We arrived a bit early for our reservation at 5:00 and were glad we did. Restaurant started to fill up at 5:00 with many other fathers... Our waiter, Nicholas, had a table of 7 and a table of 5 and the two of us arriving within 10 minutes of each other. A bit busy, but we never felt abandoned nor waited for anything. A true professional!
The menu was a diverse as we expected. My 90 year old father experienced the electronic tablet menus for the first time. He was fascinated and delighted.
He's a whitefish lover and I like to have it when in Michigan. The menu listing in Specialties offered Sautéed Whitefish with mushrooms and Michigan cherries. He loved it, I wished the dish had been less "saucy." And I don't think I'll have mushrooms with my fish again. Not my preference. The glazed carrots were fantastic small whole carrots in a delight sauce. The salad was terrific. We ate simply, but totally enjoyed our experience.

“Not worth it.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Expensive for not very interesting seafood. It has an old-school feel. Not bad food but just not worth going back for.

“Fun night out with friends!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

A bit pricey but the food was very good. My husband tried some of a friend's lobster and said it was amazing! We had quite a large group but we had 2 servers which helped keep things moving. At the end the servers even took some pictures of all of us. The Ipad menus are very cool as well. I liked being able to see the picture of the dishes.
