Seafood
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!

Staff is very accommodating and pleasant. Have had several dinners there meeting friends we haven't seen for quite a long time. They never rush you out to turn the tables.

All our fish dinners were overcooked. I had to send my steak back (overcooked) it came back correct, but took a long time and most of our party was finished eating by the time i got my dinner. Portion sizes are not uniform based on the price. Our server, on the contrary, was excellent. He did a fine job apologizing for the kitchen and making things right for us as best he could under his situation.

Great luncheon at Kings Fish House! Kumamoto Oysters with delicious with Mignonettes. Bubbling hot NE Clam Chowder was excellent! Entrees included Seared Sea Bass and Grilled Scallops and Shrimp! Service was polite and professional. Nice wine list. Highly recommended if you are in Long Beach!

Had a very nice dinner. Oyster sampler was outstanding, service was great, mains of Halibut and Trout were both a little over done. I read the same on other reviews so it was my own fault for not asking them to prepare to our liking. We weren’t given an option when placing our order so I forgot all about it. Great dinner and the butter cake was also delicious.

My first time at King’s and I thought it was really good. We were celebrating a work-related event. Good food, service & ambience. Only food comment- a couple guests thought the shrimp was over cooked.

We had a horrible experience
I called the next day and told the manager
Our food sat on a round tray for at least 12 minutes
It was cold
My husbands fish was like mush
My daughters $34 plate of Halibut was over cooked and your a fish house
I will never go back
Maybe your chefs should learn to cook from Niks chefs
Our artichoke never came
My daughters chowder never came
Worse dining experience

Came for a late night dinner after a show at the Convention Center. Quick walk up the hill from there. This area is very active at night, lots of bars and restaurants.
The restaurant is beautiful, and had a great bar area as well. Selection was awesome on the menu, and pricing was good. Portions on fish entree's were a little small, but their burger was great! very neat twist on a regular burger. The ono was delicious! had the kale and mash for sides, also great! Servers were nice, but almost too distant during the later part of the dinner. I am all about having time to ourselves through the eating, but once plates were cleared, we waited a long time to get the check, and have it returned. Overall, though, I would come back, again, a great menu variety!

We waited over an hour for our food to arrive and believe our waiter never inputted our order. We had tickets for the symphony and had to leave. The restaurant comped our drinks and appetizer but overall very disappointed with the experience. They gave us a gift card but when we checked the balance the system said it couldn’t find the gift cards or a value on them.

Casual place within walking distance of Convention Center. Stick to the basics. Sushi good. Fish tacos good. Avoid the fish as they overlook it and it’s obviously frozen filets. Nice spot for a drink and American food.

Meh. I’m from Florida so when I see farmed shrimp on the menu I’m already turned off and refuse to eat anything. I had the cob salad with fresh crab. It was fresh from a can and just fine.

We celebrated a birthday, and we could not have been happier. The food was excellent, and we were treated so well. Great, friendly service. Can't wait to go back. Besides the excellent seafood, the sides are fantastic too. Loved the Mac and cheese and the glazed carrots. Key Lime Pie and the bread pudding were a great way to end a perfect meal.

We met our son and daughter-in-law along with some family friends for dinner after touring the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Our waiter was extremely helpful and gave us great guidance on drink and meal choices. The oyster dozen sampler plate is well worth the cost alone. This place was a real gem and we’ll be back if we’re in the Long Beach area any time soon! Highly recommended!!

No quibbles on the surprisingly good food quality -- Connecticut lobster roll was on point; fresh fish. Saturday night and the streets outside were party town, but the kitchen and staff really wanted to rush and usher us out with no option for ordering dessert. Also the strict one-drink at a time policy was off-putting.

I have always enjoyed King's, especially the clam chowder. The waiter was lousy. He was inattentive. He did nothing to make our experience better. When we needed anything we had to figure out how to get his attention--a real pain!

The service was so poor that I only tipped 15% and that was because I know the service team splits and I did not want to cheat the bussers.

The food was excellent and Kings provided a good meeting place for my associate and me.
