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!

I took someone out for a late valentine's dinner since I had no way to do so back around the holiday and King Fish was by far the best choice around to spoil the lucky lady. Amazing food and place to be, completely recommend to anyone

We made early reservations. We were greeted warmly. The wait staff was plentiful and attentive. The Pisco Sour was fabulous! The crab cakes with remoulade sauce were delicious!

I have been to this restaurant many times and as well as other Kings Fish House locations. Since we live in San Clemente we go to either Carlsbad or Laguna Hills. I tried the Dungeness Crab with rice, vegetables?? and a sauce. Starting with the sauce that was poured on top of the crab still in the shell. They give you a tool to crack the crab with. Let me tell you that trying to use a tool to crack crab with sauce all over it is very difficult at best. The sauce was very bland, no taste! Plus there were very few vegetables. For $35 it was a big disappointment! I can say that most of the time we come to this restaurant the food is good.

Our food and service from Michael was excellent. Unfortunately, when I made the reservation on line I indicated it was also a birthday but it was never recognized by the staff. This also happened last summer when our anniversary was not recognized after I put it on the reservation. There apparently is a breakdown between the reservation, hostess staff and wait staff.

We will continue to frequent this location as we really enjoy the food ad service, but probably not for a special occasion.

This place is great for a nice dinner out with family, friends, or just for a little date. It’s our go to for specialty days like Mother’s Day or birthdays. We love the vibe and it’s just so open and fun!

The service and food were both excellent! The waitress was attentive. One of our sides came out a little later than the other dishes, which was not an issue, but the manager was proactive and came over to apologize and then took it off our bill. We will definitely be returning!

My only complaint was that 2 of us were served lukewarm food that must have been waiting for the other 2 dishes.

Valentine’s celebration - while not wholly crazy about reserved table near front door, this did not take away from a wonderful meal at one of our favorite restaurants. Thank you for running a wonderful location in Laguna Hills

We frequent Kings Fish House often. The food is always delicious ands fish is always fresh. It’s always busy so we make reservations to be assured we don’t have to wait very long to be seated. It is a very popular restaurant.

The restaurant is always consistent in that you pretty much always get great food & service. They have a huge menu so there is something for everyone. What I love is that the seasonal seafood specials vary all the time. They also have a great raw bar & bar with excellent bartenders.

King’s is always a treat. There are so many excellent choices for seafood and the steaks are more tender and delicious than most steak houses.
