The sword fish kabob and tacos had small two samples of fish, not expecting a ton but the amount was a sample, and the Salmon Caesar salad had the fish cooked way too oily, the bread was fine.
Service was Ok. Nothing spectacular, for what we got it was expensive.
Great Jumbalaya, great chicken and artichoke pasta, Excellent desserts (creme brulee, key lime, and coconut creme pie). I would give it five stars but the last time I went there, the waiter was condescending.
Nice atmosphere, and clean. Did not have to wait as long as quoted. Good appetizers and salads. Mahi-Mahi was terribly overcooked. Lake perch was good. Desserts were good. Service was slow and waitstaff did not seem motivated or interested in taking care of customers. Would not go out of my way to come here again.
This is the only Seafood dedicated restaurant in the area. I really wish they would import Legal Seafood or Philips from the East Coast. It is reasonably good food, at fair prices although I am not a fan of the rolls. I go once a year usually. As others have mentioned, it is a loud restaurant, so be prepared to not hear half of your conversation.
I love this restaurant. They have wonderful food, I highly recommend the calamari. We've only had bad service once, and I believe the waitress was demoted later! I wish there were less noisy children in there since it's not the type of place I go and expect to have to hear loud kids. All in all it's a great place to go for dinner.
Seafood here is always fresh. Their linguine in white clam source is the one I am hooked on. Ambiance is Mediterranean. Noise level is on a high end. Pricing is proportional to the freshness of seafood you are getting. For the money, I expect little more timely (not necessarily faster) attention to the needs of the table.
Five of us had dinner Monday evening. We had business to discuss and were seated in an area with some privacy, yet could still experience the wide open ambience typical of this genre of restaurant.
The appetizers were excellent, and all but one of the five meals were to die for (and the fifth was still pretty good)! The service was completely appropriate -- maybe even a bit quicker than necessary as we got to dessert well before our business was done.
The wine list is a little light, but very moderate in price. One dissapointment was that they ran out of several of the bottles -- which is strange with such a limited list.
Overall a great time and this exceeded our expectations.
I recently went to the real seafood co. and it was fantastic! I usually go at least twice or more per year and its alway okay, but this time everything was perfect. the food was amaizing! the service was awesome as well. I highly reccomend that everyone who is able to go try it out.
For the money you're paying at a restaurant like this, the quality of seafood seems to be lacking. The shrimp was stringy and dry and the food just doesn't have enough flavor to it.
The service was just plain awful. Having to repeatedly flag the waiter down, just to get bread, was a pain, which finally came as the food was brought out.
Found a bug in my salad. The reaction from the waiter was that it was common place and just replaced it for free. But if it was common, I definitely wasn't about to eat this free salad anyway. Asked for a discount for this disturbing experience and the managers reaction was indifferent. Says it happens all the time in fresh vegetables.
Well I've lived in Ann Arbor for over 20 years and I can safely say that I'm never going back. When friends and visitors ask me where to go for a nice dinner, my only response is to not go to Real Seafood Co.
