Went to the Real Seafood Company for their annual Lobsterfest special, which consists of a 1 lb. Lobster, bread, and a side dish for 20 bucks. I love lobster, so needless to say I enjoyed my experience. It comes already broken up so you don??t have to make a mess removing the meat. Our waiter, Brad, was super-cool and helpful. We also ordered the broiled Maine scallops, which were also really tasty. The pre-meal bread and coleslaw is also fantastic. My favorite seafood in Ann Arbor. My only complaint is that the wine is pricey, but I guess that??s to be expected on Main St.

I have always though this place looked a bit tacky from the outside, but a friend wanted to go their for her birthday this year so I agreed to try it. I was pleasantly surprised -- I'm not a big fish fan, but I had one of their specials and it was good. Service was friendly and prompt although our waiter did try to up-sell us. Prices were high but fortunatly for me, someone else was picking up the tab!

I wonder if the business plan for Main Street Ventures is "give it to 'em in the lobby." True to plan, then, the price of admission gets you a great place to eat a "just-OK" meal and folks are flocking in. My halibut steak was done perfectly--warmed through, but had a slightly off smell. I have an iron stomach and have never (almost) sent a meal back so I ate it all without untoward effects. The scallops with linguine featured meaty scallops and gluey pasta. The drinks were great, so I'd go there for drinks and an app or two if I had some extra money and wanted to drink in a happy place that smelled great. The tariff is out of whack, though.

Pros: Fun atmosphere

Cons: Overpriced in general

There is many aspects to real-seafood that does say over-hyped red lobster, their clam chowder and lobster bisque are average, while many of there fillets such as tuna, halibut, and others are ok. However, there south african lobster tails are unbelievable, as well as their mussels, and if your really into trying something different the mako shark is not bad. All that being said real-seafood does offer a great deal for birthdays. On my wife's birthday we had two southafrican lobster tails at 50% off an unbelievable deal, for parties of two 50%, for three 33% off and for 4 25% off if someone at the table has a birthday, also free chesecake.

Great service resturant in downtown ann arbor. The surroundings are really nice and the service of this restaurant can't be better. I really enjoy eating here! The food is good, they have quite a huge menu and large selection of different things. I won't say the food is world class but they are decent for the price. They have outdoor seating as well but since the restaurant is next to the street, it wasn't really elegant or nice for that matter. I find the food , esp the soup , overly seasoned to my taste sometime.

I've been there twice for dinner. The ambience is fantastic, the wait staff is superb, but the food is lacking. The first time I dined there I found the food bland. A few friends and myself gave the place another try and while the appetizers were fantastic the "He Stew" was bland, thin, and not very appetizing. Three of the people in my party including myself ordered it and I was the only one who even finished it after liberally peppering my dish. I won't be returning.

This is a nice restaurant with a great outdoor seating area. The menu is quite large. I'm not a huge seafood fan, but what I ordered was good, the waitstaff was very prompt. Although the parking can be difficult, and the prices are quite high.

I went there with a group of friends a few months ago and ordered the Paella Valenciana. Nice presentation, but it was disappointingly overcooked. The pan it is served in comes quite hot, so the crawfish and shrimp were chewy and while the rice had begun to burn and stick at the bottom. Their other dishes are good and the mussels are delicious.
