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!

Sautéed N’awlins BBQ Shrimp
wild jumbo shrimp with steamed jasmine rice and toasted sourdough

This is what I ordered, however I asked to have it mixed with pasta instead of rice. They accommodated my request and it was absolutely delicious. The guests at the next table asked what I had because it looked so good.
I will DEFINITELY order again.

Our server, Jennifer, was fantastic. She was prompt, and did an excellent job. Bravo!

We have dined there often and look forward to our next visit.
Thank you

We had a lovely time celebrating an early Mother's Day dinner for our family. At first we were sat away from the inside patio almost to the edge of the parking lot which threw me off. As soon as our server (Sarah) greeted us the night took a turn for the better. We had great service, lovely cocktails, fine food and wine. Very attentive staff all around, looking forward to coming back.

Usually a meeting place with people, and have always had a good experience; but this time their hostess who greeted us was unfriendly and almost rude. This is not what you expect for a greeter at a restaurant, she needs lessons in hospitality. In addition we needed to beg for water, and refill of our cocktails. This was embarrassing to my guests as well. This is the last time at this establishment.

Excellent food and service! Had the Chilean Sea bass. Melt in your mouth delicious. Husband had the crab/shrimp Louie. Huge portion. Prawn appetizer was tasty! Amazing and attentive waiter.
It’s become our favorite go to restaurant when we’re in town.

Had to sit in parking lot area. Windy. Then cold. Had to wait and wait for heater to be turned on. Then no fuel. Wait. Wait. Used two of your booster seats. Filthy. We are all so careful about cleaning tables but your boosters were awful. Dirty. We have eaten at Kings several times and service was great but parking lot service was very slow. Food still excellent.

Louie Salad was good, very fresh, little light on the shrimp, but a decent amount of crab. Nothing special, but a solid meal, good size portion overall.

This was my first time dining at this restaurant, I booked an online reservation and only waited 10 minutes after my reservation time to be seated which was good. The servers here are on top of it! The presentation on their dishes is pristine. However, it looks better than its taste in my opinion. I got the grilled salmon with asparagus and glazed carrots along with their hibiscus limeade which was mixed well.

We would gladly rate the food as 5 stars if it were not for the drab Ceasar Salad. For the price of the salad, the romaine lettuce was not crisp and the presentation was poor.
