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!

Have been here a few times and generally order the same entree. Last couple times have been extremely inconsistent and have forgotten a few requests.

We have gone to this restaurant many times and had excellent food and service, but last night was a bad day at black rock, the service was basically non existent, we had to flag down and ask for everything— even napkins . The server staff were huddled around the cash register and not paying any attention to the tables. We had reservations at 6:15 finally sat down at 7:10 after asking. 15 to 20 minutes to get drink order, it got worse after that — we left at 9:15. Food was great as always.

Our meal was very good and we loved the remodeling done at the restaurant. Only downside was the server who was totally uninterested in taking our order. I've eaten here many times before and this was unusual, but definitely made the meal less enjoyable than it should have been. We celebrated a previously announced birthday and only when prompted did he bring over a birthday dessert but set it down with no birthday song or greeting.

Delicious as Always. Everyone loved their selections. Fresh Oysters were superb! The service was a little dysfunctional, as we kept having to ask the waitress to clear our dirty dishes. Just a little annoying. We love King's!

The servers were extremely attentive to detail. They brought drinks without a request.

I just wish the portions were a little bigger on the wedge salad (used to be a whole half), and the cup of soup too.

Always good food at King's. I have been to King's 5 times now between various locations and they all have the same great level of food. Waitress was a little slow but not overly. I thought my miso marinated sea bass was a little smaller portion than previously, but taste was excellent. Cant go wrong here.

Our waiter wasn’t attentive enough to check in with our order, drinks, or if we needed anything. We have had the same waiter in the past, and we thought he was just having a rough day. But it seems he just gives lousy service.

Wonderful, fresh seafood accompanied by fresh baked bread. I chose Kings for the oysters and they didn’t disappoint. Excellent service. I didn’t notice the noise level. Definitely plan to go again and bring a friend.

The food was delicious but talk about service. Our server came like 2 times to our table while to the other tables he was going more than 4 times. I know it was busy but I have gone to king fish on Huntington Beach and the service is outstanding. Not happy at all.

This was our second time since the Orange location went through a remodel. It's a much more relaxing decor, and the food is wonderful! Both times we've been there we've had excellent service. This is what I would consider to be a very nice place for a date night.

Valentines Day. We sat outside in booth 202 and it was lovely. We love the booths because it is always quieter and weather permitting it is very comfortable. The only issue we had was the heaters were on and it was warm outside so we asked to have ours turned off. Took a little while but once it was off it was perfect.

We both order halibut encrusted in macadamia nut and the beautiful piece of fish was overcooked and dry on both orders .... at over $30 + for the entree should be cooked perfect . Was a waste of a beautiful piece of fish

My daughter’s birthday. King’s is a little family tradition for celebrating birthdays. We love the food and we were really impressed that our Server, Frank remembered us from our last visit.
