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!

Disappointing. Raw seafood platter selection was sad and sodden. Oysters included some “stinkers”, shrimp were older and beyond shelf life. Calamari was unflavorful. Room was empty for good reason. I will not return.

Need to be carefull, menu prices do not reflect what comes on your bill! I understand its 25 cents or 35 cents, in some cases more BUT check! I was really disappointed this last visit. Even portions are now smaller! Calamari not what it use to be! We will have to check other places for our seafood cravings.

Food and service are both excellent . The N'awlin sprimp is very good just enough spice to make it tasty, but not over done. I always have the sanddabs a favorite of mine.

This was our 2nd time dining at this restaurant, we came back for the 2nd time because of the service we received on our first visit in January. The 2nd visit was a BIG disappointment. I reserved for inside seating & we were seated outside. At first I thought maybe because it was Valentine’s so the place was full but on our way to be seated outside, I saw a few empty tables for inside seating. Our reservation was at 9pm. Once seated & ordered, we waited for about 55 minutes to have our food served but the appetizer was not served until I asked, the waiter forgot our appetizer order. Don’t think we’ll be back for the 3rd time.

Our meal was great, however our server was terrible. I understand that it's Valentine's Day and it gets very busy but our server didn't come to our table once to see if we needed anything. He made several trips to the table across from us checking in with that party. He didn't even offer to refill our waters!

The food and service were outstanding. Although they had a kitchen error that caused our meal considerable delays, we were so into conversation and enjoying the atmosphere we never noticed. The manager and server were extremely apologetic and actually covered our meal completely although I didn't expect it. I'll definitely be back and recommend this place. I believe our server's name was Ishara and she did great with recommendations as that was my first visit.

Unfortunately our oysters never arrived and my Halibut was very dry. BUT the manager was kind enough to come over, on his own accord, and listen to us our comments. He offered to remove my dish from the bill with his apologies. Because of his personal attention to the matter, we will return!

We had a business lunch there with one of our vendors. They'd been to King's before and recommended it. This was my first time and we (my staff and I) were very pleased. Good food. Good selection. Good service. Nice atmosphere and decor. If I had to find one complaint, it would be that my house salad had a little too much dressing on it. Other than that, it was great. I would definitely recommend King's to a friend.

Too noisy!!!! The waitress was so busy that the service was underwhelming as was the food. We ordered poke and it came frozen! The fish was bland. We won't be back.

Had my service dog with me and was pleased that this issue was handled with ease - no drama. Sometimes restaurants run you through the wringer when a service dog is involved. The restaurants professionalism was appreciated-made the experience very enjoyable. Highly recommend this restaurant!!!

We eat here frequently and this past Saturday night was more crowded than normal. The staff handled it very well. The service was excellent and food quality was as good as normal.

Overall a good experience as always in terms of food and service. I was shocked to see rows of prime parking spaces roped off for valet. This was Sunday night at a suburban shopping center with lots of parking. This needs to stop ASAP.

We go to Kings often. Tonight the service was sooooo slow. It took an hour for our table of 4 to get our entrees. And two of those were bowls of clam chowder!! We sat in the bar area and typically food comes quick. The restaurant was only moderately full.

On a positive note, best bread ever and the clam chowder was fantastic. However, if this was my first visit to Kings, I might never return. No one wants to wait an hour for a salad, 2 bowls of chowder and 1 steak.

My husband loves King's Fish House. We went for his bday. Normally it's great. But tonight, our service stunk. It was slow, he forgot stuff, told us one thing and then the bill came and it wasn't what he told us.....Just not a good night.

I guess I could chalk it up to it being New Year's Eve, but our service was terrible. We sat there for 45 minutes with no water, despite asking several times for water. When the waitress finally came to take our order, I had a question about one of the meals. She said she would find out and let me know. She never came back so I had to flag her down and order something else. I overheard the couple at the table next to us complaining to the manager that he gave the waitress his credit card a half hour before and she never came back. It's a shame the service was so bad because when the food finally arrived, everyone enjoyed their meals but I probably won't be back any time soon.

Nice dinner experience for New years Eve. Food and service were very good buttery pricey. I wish the prices were more inline with other fish restaurants so we should eat there more often. Two for dinner including tip was $90. Seems high for a family type place.

I had eaten at King’s Fish House in Long Beach then discovered this Kong’s in HB. Went to the movies then lunch T King’s Fish House in Bella Terra. Easy parking, great service & tasty fish. We shared oysters, delicious then shared the scallops, excellent.
