Best Seafood Restaurant in Washtenaw County; Best Outdoor or Patio Dining in Washtenaw County: Real Seafood Co.; 341 S. Main St., Ann Arbor; 888-456-3463;

A hot spot for the freshest top-catch fish and premium seafood for 38 years and counting. With an atmosphere that’s comfortable, open and lively, it draws its catches from the waters of Boston, the Pacific Coast, the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. One highlight is its raw oysters, served to order on the half shell. The 10 tables outside on the patio don’t hurt either.
