Seafood
We’ve been in restaurants a long time – three generations, to be precise – and we love seafood. With seafood there’s so much to be passionate about – the freshness, the flavor, the variety, and the surprise.

To create the ultimate seafood experience, we traveled down the highways and byways. We pulled up a seat, put on bibs, and soaked up the seafood experience: The no-name dishes with unforgettable flavor, the fresh-caught oysters and clams piled high, the hand-lettered specials on ancient chalkboards, and the savory simmer of every combination of spices imaginable.

The pleasure of preparing and sharing seafood was simple and genuine, and it brought out the best in everyone. Often, we felt as if we’d been welcomed into somebody’s home.

That’s what King’s Fish House is all about — and we’ve tried to bring all of these ideas together into one single, spectacular place, filled with camaraderie and celebration, and the things we love best. Welcome to the House that Seafood Built!

Food and ambiance were great. Wait a long time to get seated, especially with a 95 year old man with our party, even though it was empty. Very frustrating, it seems to be this way most of the time we eat here.

Portion size has really shrunk! I'm not a huge eater but there were miniscule amounts of fish in my fish tacos and the size of the sand dabs were so much smaller than they have been in the past. Our poor waiter had been at the restaurant for 10 hours and did a great job!

We booked for my daughter’s 9 year old birthday. Unfortunately, it appeared to be one of the busiest nights. They were going to have to put us inside which did not work for us. Just as we were figuring out plan B, our hostess was able to find us a table. I’m not sure what she had to do, but we appreciate it. Our daughter was very happy and our service was fantastic.

King's Fish House is a special dining experience for my dad and I . The organic mixed salad is fresh and tasty and all the fish I've tried has been wonderful. I look forward to coming back soon!

Our waiter was perfect as was our dinner, as usual. I have ALWAYS had a perfect experience at King's.
Thank you for having such a great staff and menu. My only complaint is that you removed your baked mussels from your menu. They were the favorite of many of your customers.
Thanks,
Diane Breitman

Food quality and taste has gone down!
Their seafood salad was terrible and the crab cakes used to be much better!
I was surprised that for a Wednesday nite it was buzzing!
I’ll give this place a break!

My scallops were extremely sandy and cold. They weren’t washed well before use and my garlic mashed potatoes were cold. Obviously my plate was ready first and was held until my husbands order was ready.

One of our neighborhood favorites. Not inexpensive so not one we visit often but when we do the staff is always welcoming, the food good, and the atmosphere comfortable.

Our server was great, but lobster tail was over cooked. Was a cold night and sat inside but the serving staff kept leaving the door to the patio open, even after our server kept asking them to close it after use as I was freezing. We even had to get up to close it ourselves on occasion. Any customer that sat near that door eventually asked to move. Next time I will make sure not to sit in that area.

Pretty noisy outside tonight, plus not enough heat lamps.

Service was great, and so was the butter cake!

Friendly front of house and staff. The food was really good. The grilled artichoke was amazing. The Parmesan crusted Alaskan sand dabs were also really tasty.
Service was good and friendly although a little slow; we often would go what seemed to be around 15-20 minutes without being checked on . We were having a nice time catching up so it didn’t bother us too much.
Overall had a really good experience and really enjoyed the food and drinks. The amaretto sour was on point.

King's has been our go-to for years. Still top-tier, as far as we're concerned. The clam chowder is the best I've ever had anywhere in the world.
