    Not very impressed with the food at this restaurant. The service was not good. We think our waitress had too many tables and just was unable to handle it. I ordered one of the margaritas on their list, and I tasted lots of orange juice and also thought it had agave nectar in it which I'm not fond of, and asked them to make it without those ingredients, and I was told they did not put those ingredients in. If it says that it as those ingredients, why would they not go by their menu? It was strange. Sorry to say, we won't go back regardless.

    We were late for Dining in West Caost Florida as we pulled into Kingfish a bit after 9. There were a few diners at the bar and only one other table had people in the dining room. Our fish sandwiches came out piping hot, tasty along with genreous slices of perfectly ripe tomatoes and steaming hot fried potatos. Sandwiches were large portions and food was well prepared.

    We had read reviews and ratings that said this was good. We were disappointed, the food and service were both spotty. It is connected to a hotel, which probably helps it stay in business, but we will not go back.

    We went with a large group. The service was friendly and timely. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food which was in sufficient portions and an appealing presentation. The prices were reasonable. The ambience was that of a hotel restaurant but we didn't mind that. If you are looking for a romantic intimate dinner, another setting might be a better choice. We were a family with two younger children and would definitely return.

    We like going to Kingfish Grill because it has really good food, reasonably priced and we never have to wait for a table. Sometimes my husband says, I want to have the shrimp w/feta cheese and kalamata olives appetizer at Kingfish on a Friday night, there is generally not a long wait for a table so we like that. I think this little gem may be under noticed because it is in front of a Ramada Inn on a busy street. I also love their shrimp cocktail, the shrimps are grilled! I have never seen this before but they are delicous! The grouper picata is amazing too! They have a very varied menu so there is something to please a wide set of tastes!

    Our meeting for Brunch was a pleasant surprise, since we had never dined at this restaurant. It was excellent for what we were doing and the food was excellent. To add an equally notable comment, the service was beyond expectation. These comments are particularly important to note, because I don't do this unless I am very impressed. I want to send out an "Excellent Job" to the staff of the Kingfish Grill and Tap House. We will definitely be back.

    Checked into a near by hotel who suggested this for dinner. We decided to try it instead of braving the crowds in downtown St Pete. It is located in a Ramada Inn parking lot. But don't let that scare you. The interior is modest, but clean. But when the food arrived, all that was forgotten. The chef stopped at our table to let us know that all the seafood arrives fresh daily. We had the grouper picatta 6 oz. size and the scallops dinner which was the daily special. Both were cooked beautifully and plated elegantly. The vegetables were tender yet crisp and equally well prepared. And the $3 house salad was fresh and filled with interesting ingredients. A wonderful surprise to find high quality food for a reasonable price at this hidden gem!

The food was good (if just a little moderately portioned). Our waiter paul was both handsome and personable. I would recommend this to others and would definitely eat here agian!

    Went out with friends for date night to Kingfish. The food was just ok. I had lobster ravioli, with a vodka sauce and pesto. There was crab meat on top which was delicious. The ravioli was a pureed lobster something. It was a bit strange. I personal did not like the vodka sauce with and the pesto together. My husband has a couple of appitizers for this entree (mussels, oysters, and the filet). He enjoyed all of those. Our frineds had the fish n chips (also enjoyable) and the fish sandwich (which was rubbery). Not what I was expecting. We will not be back.

    This place is very nice - I did not realize how "up market" it was going to be. I had expected a cozy neighborhood bar because of the casual looking outside tables with umbrellas. But this is cloth napkins and servers dressed in black, and the chef coming out to ask how you are enjoying your meal. Prices are not exhorbitant and the food is very good. I had the Macadamia Nut Mahai Mahai which was cooked perfectly and a generous portion, topped with a mango salsa. It came with Basmati rice and nicely cooked veggies (not soft and mushy, nor so hard that they felt uncooked). An enjoyable dinner.

    I have been to Kingfish a couple times now: with my husband for our anniversary, after work dinner, and just recently this time with my 13 coworkers. Even with 13 people, the service was fantastic and the drinks were constantly refilled. I believe our servers name was Mike(who also serviced the bar and our 2 large high top tables.) Everyone enjoyed their food and the service. We will definitely be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    I like look of the restaurant and the servers were nice but a little slow at basics like offering to bring the check out. Our server didn't ask us if we wanted separate checks either (some do some don't so no big deal). The food was really good except for the bun that my fish sandwich came on. It broke easily and was dry and bland. My guests got the same bun I think even though they ordered differently than me (burger and chicken sandwich). They didn't complain. We came during lunch so it wasn't very busy. I tend to enjoy places that are full of people so maybe I'll enjoy it more if I come later in the day for dinner or drinks, maybe on the deck. I would like to see KingFish succeed so that is why I am providing my feedback.

    Ate as a couple, once late afternoon on week day and it was empty. Service excellent and food very good. Particularly enjoyed the New England Clam Chowder and grouper piccata. Ate again on a weeknight around 6:30 with a group of 6. A little louder, bar scene busy. Service very good. Good reports on Key West Chowder, filet, rueben and fish sandwich. Also nice crusty bread with an interesting olive compound butter. Yummy.

    I said I would recommend, but that's only because of the food. The food was very good but service was horrible. Our waitress left our check at that table and then went and talked to the hostess for like 10 min before coming back. We had to ask a busboy at one point to find her so we could have refills because we waited and waited and she was nowhere to be seen.....On top of that we had extra stuff on our bill that wasn't ours....glad I checked the ticket.
