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!

Absolutely wonderful. We went to celebrate Mom's 90th birthday. The staff was very accommodating. One of the girls that seat you helped me sneak the cake in without her noticing. Our server was on point the entire evening

We love the King’s Fish House experience!
Our server, Heidi was super! Exceptional service with a beautiful smile.
The Walnut & Blue Cheese Salad is the best!
Our entree was the delicious Miso Yaki Chilean SeaBass.
For dessert, can’t beat the yummy Bread Pudding!
Thank you Heidi for a delightful evening!
Thank you King’s Fish House for Heidi & your talented chefs!

If you like fish, you'll like King's Fish House. The selection of fresh fish options is extensive, and the side dishes and appetizers are very good as well. Portions are generous, and there's no corkage fee if you bring your own wine. Prices are a on the high side for a chain restaurant, but overall, a very nice restaurant.

I was very impressed by the management and service. I had ordered a 2lb Dungeness crab and it was delicious. The crab looked smaller than 2lbs so I had questioned the size with the waitress. She brought that concern to the manager. They were both apologetic. When the bill came I was informed that the crab charge was taken off the bill. I was blow away by this. Of course I did not want to make the restaurant absorb what I ate so I just gave the waitress the full amount of what the 2lb cost.

I applaud them for such a class act.

This is one of my most favorite restaurants to dine at. Always a great experience, which is probably why I'm usually here to celebrate my birthday.

The standard menu items such as the sand dabs leave quite an impression to come back again, while the daily specials are always an exciting culinary adventure.

Very well-prepared fish. Tasty and different to what is usually out there. Came here on impulse to satisfy the non-meat eaters in the family. Very satisfied, would probably come again for a special occasion. Average spending per head was about $35 without drinks....

I love Kings! I’m a pescatarian so when fish is fresh it’s a bright and shiny sunny day. Everyday is bright and shiny and sunny there; even when the clouds are in the sky. Taking the miso sea bass bite in your mouth with shiitake mushrooms and bok choy 🥬 brightens even the dullest of grey days.

2nd trip here in a couple of months. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and drinks. Although the oysters were ok, the Chilean Sea Bass, Lobster Roll & Salmon were great! Love, love, love the Brussels sprouts! We had a great time and waiter Matt was knowledgeable!

Our server was attentive, but bar service was very slow. Several people ended up bringing our orders in an attempt to make up for time. Unfortunately, feels like this is a sign of the times with lack of employees available for service positions.

The person, maybe a manager, who sat us didn’t offer giving us a different table, and there were plenty, after I suggested we weren’t comfortable with it.
The food came out luke-warm and when we brought it to our server’s attention no action was taken.
The busboy tried taking away our plates became were finished eating. Probably will have to think hard & long about returning there for another date night.

I was disappointed in the fish sandwich. It used to be Ono, but this time it was Wahoo. It was very fishy tasting, like the fish was old. I frequent this King’s Fish House and have never been disappointed in the past. I’m familiar with Wahoo, and I have never tasted any as “fishy” as this particular piece was.

Do not order the cheeseburger. Worst burger I have had. Just tasted terrible. Not sure if it was spoiled, but it was bad. Tasted like a moldy shoe box in the basement. Sorry.

This was our second dinner at Kings Fish House, and our dining experience was just as good as our first visit several months ago. The food was delicious, and our server was friendly attentive. We both had sand daps as an entree, which are outstanding. We also recommend the Brussels sprouts as a side. They do cost a little extra, but are well worth the $2.50 extra! We were celebrating a birthday, and apparently the restaurant treats you to a dessert on your birthday. This was a nice surprise (and very yummy)!

Nice date night. Our server left on an emergency in the middle of our meal but eventually a server took over and helped complete the meal. Probably would have ordered a few more drinks and dessert if we weren’t left in limbo for 30 mins in the middle of the meal. Overall nice evening.
