                                                    My wife and I enjoyed celebrating our birthday there. We both ordered the special, stuffed flounder. It was delicious. Prior to our dinner we had a half dozen oysters on the half shell and steamed clams. Yum Yum! Our server Michael, attended to our every needs. Teddy the manager, was also very quick in getting us to our booth as soon as we arrived. Overall experience is a 10!

                                                    Enjoyed our dinner with friends. Everyone’s meal was good. My only complaint is that we often find our fish, while tasty, it tends to be over cooked and a bit dry.

                                                    We were given a time limit to our having dinner, which does put a little bit of stress on having to check one's watch. We would have appreciated if our server would have waited for us to finish talking with our friends before she jumped in to tell us something - this happened several times and was annoying. The noise level was high, but it didn't help to have a toddler at the next table. But, the food was delicious and perfect and we will certainly be back again!

                                                    This restaurant is popular, though I don't know why. I find it to be very overpriced and the quality and preparation of the food not very good. Also our server had a really crappy attitude and it is not because of Covid--I have been there many times over the years and she has always worked there and has always been unpleasant. Unfortunately, we always seem to get assigned to her section. This won't be happening again though because we won't be going back again.

                                                    The oysters were such a treat & our server, Meg, alerted us to secure them quickly, while they lasted. (Thank you, Meg.) Our cocktails were unusual & refreshing, but the ultimate taste treat was the trout. Oh my! It’s easy to overcook fish, but this was melt-in-your-mouth perfection, with a spectacular combination of ingredients filling the fish. We were celebrating a special occasion & Kingfisher is the ideal place for such an event: friendly, fun & delicious beyond reason. We hope to return soon.

                                                    Great food but the swordfish was seriously over salted and overcooked.some appetizers came out early but we were left to sit with nothing for about 15 mins uncomfortable. Bring all appetizers together. Husband loved his Hawaiian Mahi.

                                                    It’s been a few years since we have gone to Kingfisher for dinner. They have not let us down. The dinner was spectacular. Seafood was excellent. Service was great. She made an excellent recommendation for a bottle of wine to complement our dinner. We will be coming back!!!

                                                    What it lacks in sophistication it more than makes up in quality. The place needs a facelift, the outside signage is old, the inside has a dull paint scheme and lacks warmth, the parking is ridiculously bad (thats because the food is good and they were packed) Thats all the negatives I could find from an outstanding evening and experience The food was wonderful from the salad to the main dishes (Salmon and Hawaiian fish), everything fit together nicely and was exceptionally cooked as well as delicious. Service was outstanding, sat very quickly as it was a very busy Saturday night, water then drinks, apps, salad appetizers all spread out evenly and then entrees, we must have had 5 different people help us through out the meal. Our server was excellent and knowledgeable. The overall experience was wonderful, great value, wonderful mix of customers who seemed all to happy to be there as if each table had their own thing going on, we will definitely be going back

                                                    Had a reservation and we were seated immediately. Food was great and service top notch.

                                                    Disappointing. We were visiting from out of town and not a lot of seafood places in Tucson. Generally I expect something a little bit more from a seafood restaurant.
