[Ann Arbor] The Real Seafood Company
Address: 341 S. Main St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
Verdict: Boring but necessary seafood
Will return: No (only if I’m compelled by another birthday or graduation dinner)
What to get:
– Pan Seared Diver Scallops
– Lobsterfest Special
I have been here a couple of times for birthday (including my own once) and graduation dinners. It’s not the most creative seafood place but it’s fine. Everything is pretty much baked or boiled and add salt but that’s just what some people like to eat. Overall, the dishes taste predictable. There is nothing wrong with it but there is also nothing amazing about it.
Pan Seared Diver Scallops ($14.95) with sweet potato puree and apple cider reduction
Creamy New England Clam Chowder ($4.95 cup; $6.95 bowl)
Chowda is a stable at seafood restaurants. This is standard but delicious nonetheless.
The sauce wasn’t anything spectacular and I would not recommend getting this over the other appetizers.
They usually run this special in the fall and it is pretty legit. The server brings the lobster out whole first and de-shells it next to the table. If I come back, it will only be to get this special and the scallops.
Blue Plate Special ($30.95) with crab cake, baked oysters, baked stuffed flounder, grilled shrimp and scallop skewer
If you can’t decide or want variety (and are okay with not having lobster), this is a good entree to get. This is a great mix of samplings from the appetizer and entree sections. I especially like the the oysters, which are the Oysters Florentine with spinach, bacon, and parmesan from the appetizer section.
