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!

    We always love dining here for the friendly atmosphere and great food and drinks. The food is consistently delicious. My favorite are the Panko Fried Shrimp. They are excellent for a hearty appetite. I always bring some home as I want to save room for the Fabulous New York Cheesecake. Never had any better!

    I hadn’t been to King’s for many years, so I had forgotten how truly Delicious it was and last night the fish was perfectly cooked. The service was great and we didn’t feel the need to ask for anything as the staff was very attentive and friendly. Overall, I enjoyed the hospitality and especially the food. I will definitely be back!

    Not worth it, the crab cakes ae frozen and look like hockey pucks. My cioppino had bad shrimp that made me sick. The manager did offer to make me a new dish but at this point I was done. I spent $145 for me and my bride and did not feel it was worth it.

    This was our second time having dinner here. The food is flavorful. The portions are perfect. We had the edamame with garlic. She had the scallops again and I went with the Mahi Mahi. The sides were great. I can see why I heard people ordering the brussel sprouts so much.

    Went for Valentines dinner ( 1st time). The parking can be a challenge as it sits in an outdoor shopping center. Inside was clean open and Hostess station miniature greeted us. It was busy with many a party waiting for open tables. We were seated 5 minutes after booked rez and greeted promptly by our bus boy with waters and naming our server. Menu was good with variety selection of seafood and other cuisines. Our server Martin was excellent , prompt with service and provided for all out needs. The restaurant itself is a mid level priced menu of items for those seeking bang for buck options. Would recommend this locale on any day other than a Holiday.

    Table sticky, NE clam chowder good, spicy chowder fishy and very little fish, salads small with very little seafood on them and not worth the money, fish platter very small and not worth the money, desserts delicious. Will not go back. Too expensive for overpriced dishes and unimpressive ambiance.

    Dipping sauce for calamari was not good at all. Food was not hot or was overcooked and dry. Best part was oysters on half shell. service was slow and took awhile to get food. No refills on drinks except for beer. Would recommend for oysters only.

    Service was great but food was not so great. Calamari appetizer was soggy the breading was falling apart and crumbling. Had the new years special and the lobster and steak was cold. For the price you pay can definitely go elsewhere for better quality food.
