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!

We began our meal with a dozen oysters that went amazingly with the muscadet that we brought with us because of Kings Liberal corkage few of $0! We then each had 2 sushi rolls and seared Ahi Tuna salad both were fabulous with the bottle of Pinot Noir we also brought ! If you are in the downtown area of Long Beach you must visit Kings for great seafood!

The food is incredible. Their clam chowder is among the best I’ve had. The service is great and they split plates with no charge. The I my drawback is it is very loud at the peak hours. All in all though it is a fantastic place to get excellent, fresh seafood.

Great local seafood place in a town/area of restaurant chains. Lots of choice and all were very good. Choice of sides so one can individualize one's meal. Great service and open air seating available. Would definitely go back.

I love the halibut season, but my macadamia nut crusted halibut was overcooked. The crust was hard on one side and the veggies were a hot mess. The zucchini and northwest veggies were overcooked and undercooked! I usually clean my plate, but I left the veggies. I would have asked for my halibut to be redone, but it took forever to get it, so I just ate dry fish. Sad. The server was training a new person and they were both nice but didn't notice the mess they brought to the table.

Food was ok. The crispy Brussel sprouts weren’t crispy. They were drenched in a sweet sauce that made them soft. The Chilean Sea Bass was amazing; however, the macaroni and cheese was very light on flavor.

King's Fish House is an excellent spot for seafood. They have a broad selection of choices, some can be just simply grilled while others come with sauces or toppings. Oysters were quite tasty as an appetizer. The four of us each had a different dish and we were all quite pleased. Service was attentive but not at all overbearing. The manager came by at the end to ask how things were, and we had quite a nice conversation with him. This is definitely one of the gems of Long Beach. Highly recommended!

Friendly and relaxed service. Huge menu. Very large dining room with windows that open to allow a ‘patio feel’ on pleasant nights.
Enough choices for vegetarian/vegan diners (omitting bacon/lardons/cheese). I enjoyed the blue cheese wedge, Brussels sprouts, coleslaw and Macaroni & cheese. Everything was very good. The Mac and cheese was like deluxe Kraft Dinner with panko crumbs on top. Luckily I love deluxe KD.
My cousin had the N’awlins BBQ shrimp with rice and grilled sourdough. I tasted the sauce by dipping a piece of the delicious sourdough bread in it, and will try to replicate the recipe with tofu. It was rich and piquant without being too spicy. Lots of interesting cocktail choices.
Prices are reasonable for the quality, and everything tastes like it is made with care.
I will return again to try a few other salads, and hopefully some dessert next time I am in Long Beach!

Good food, tasty as usual, although portions shrink every few months, especially the calamari appetizer which doesnt give you much at all, considering the $15 price.
And $6.50 for a cup of chowder is pretty pricey, but it is tasty. Better value for the bowl at 8,50 but who can eat a bowl plus their entree? Service acceptable, good, but timing was rushed, as waiter brought entrees before we finished our salads. I was only halfway through my wedge salad, which is very good, but not enough dressing.

Went in to King's Fish House for my Wife's Birthday. From the start the server seem to have other things on his mind other than us. Our dinner courses came out at random times. The food was over salted, and some of our sides of our dinner were burnt. When the server took our drink order at the beginning of the dinner we received the drinks towards the end of our dinner. We didn't see our server for long periods of time.

King's Fish House is the place to go for seafood. Seating is comfortable and not crowded. Service was excellent. The menu has a nice variety of choices. The macadamia nut encrusted halibut was awesome, as was the grilled yellowtail. Very tasty chowder as well. I highly recommend King's for seafood.

We were seated right away for our 6 reservation. We had to look over the menu first time there. Are drinks took a very long time. It was pretty disjointed there as far as service. The server was very nice but he was just slammed. There didn't seem to be a lot of people in the restaurant so I didn't understand. Food was alright pretty expensive. My son's yellowfish was chewy he said. It wasn't a real enjoyable experience in our opinion.

The Sea Bass was the best I have had in a very long time and my wife had the scallops which she said was excellent. 👍 I would strongly recommend trying Kings.

Great dining experience. Had soft shell crab cooked southern style. The crab and fried green tomato could have been spiced a little better not were perfectly prepared. The succotash was the best I've ever had and I'm from the South. Fantastic meal.
