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!

One of my favorite S. Cal chain restaurants. Food is always very good, free corkage is wonderful and service is always friendly and on point. Might be the restaurant we visit the most.

Great restaurant. Great food. Great service. Steak and seafood were delectable. Ambience could have been better. We were seated directly behind the host station. No partition or divider.

Clam chowder (New England) and Sushi selections are always spot on! Can't go wrong with either of these. My husband enjoyed his blackened halibut very much.

My Family and I come to Kings as often as possible, usually about once a month. We are a family of 5 so, as you can imagine, the bill is pretty pricey. That being said, we know this going in but in return, we expect great service and fantastic food. Usually that is the case and that is why we come back over and over. I have to say, the last couple of times have not been up to their usual standards in service or food. Last night was one of the most disappointing visits. We ordered appetizers that never came. Our meal was served and we had to ask where the appetizers were. They brought one out but not the other. They finally brought the second appetizer when we were finishing the meal because we asked again. Unacceptable! I thought maybe they would remove the second appetizer from the bill but, no, they didn’t. Very disappointed with the service. Also, I had to ask for water refill and a box several times before either came. Might be taking a break from going there for a while. Too many other great eating options out there.

Allow about an hour and a half - two hours to enjoy your drinks and meal if you are going to a show at the Honda Center. Don’t be rushed!
Food and service were excellent and we had a pretty darn good dirty martini 🍸.

We came in with two parties of 8. Tables were perfectly set up next to each other. Service was stellar! Food, amazing as always. Love the ambiance. EVERYONE in our party was very happy. THANK YOU to Kings Fish House for an outstanding dining experience once again!
And as an added bonus, we are a Shelby Mustang Club and the parking at this location is perfect!

Love going to King's Fish House. Starting with the oysters, then on to the main course, everything was perfect. Drinks were spot on and our server was outstanding, making sure we were treated like royalty!

My wife had shrimp and scallops and I had the clam linguini. Both were excellent. However, I must say that everything we have had off the menu has been superb.

We've never had dessert but that is because we are always stuffed!

We ordered tea & coffee, clam chowder, appetizer grilled octopus & crab cakes. Good quality ingredients, seafood. Octopus was a tad over cooked, chewy, still tasty. Crab cakes from canned crab, tasted good. Clam chowder was well balanced.

Only complaint was it was so noisy we couldn’t hear each other talk. Otherwise our server was good. He forgot the bread initially, but was on point thereafter. Food was excellent—loved the beet salad, lobster roll & butter cake.

Daisy and Lauren made our experience absolutely incredible. We knew from the moment that we sat down that it was super busy with limited servers. Even then, Lauren sat in for Daisy to get our drink order while holding a full tray in her hand like a rockstar, she was obviously overwhelmed but handled it like a pro. Daisy took extra time to chat with us every time she came to our table. I loved it, but I felt guilty knowing how busy they were.

The food was incredible. I had the steak and Mexican Jumbo Shrimp. My wife had the salmon and my daughter a flight of delicious oysters.

Overall amazing experience!

My wife’s favorite specialty cocktail is your Southern sour which was removed from the menu this time. Our waitress asked the bartender and we were accommodated which was very nice. Would ask that it be placed back in the menu.
I had your Loup de Mer and I did not recall the whole fish being deboned when I ordered it many times before. That was a value added feature to an already wonderful presentation.

The service was exceptional and the food I was amazing. I tried the California Spiny Lobster and it was delicious. We had 6 in our party and everyone loved the shrimp taquitos and BBQ shrimp appetizers. The Macadamia Crusted Halibut was a hit with two in our party. 😀

King's Fish House is consistently excellent in all regards. Their food is excellent, and service is spot on. We had a nice anniversary dinner last night, and we're acknowledged by the hostess as well as our server. Enjoyed ourselves very much.

Party of seven, outdoors evening cold but stayed warm with heat lamp and the waitress provided blankets (nice touch, added to the ambiance). Well attended to, never felt we were forgotten. Food excellent! Oysters were a huge hit at our table. Wine list excellent, kudos to the sommelier!

There is nothing not to like about this store. It's the best of all the KFH I've been to! They did change the Miso Yaki Chilean Sea Bass, which was one of my top favs, but now I will just order a la carte. You won't be disappointed. A little pricy. No corkage fee for 1st bottle!
