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!

First let me say that I realize we are still in the midst of COVID. However, on this particular Thursday evening, the restaurant was not busy at all, yet with my reservation and arriving early, I still sat for 20 minutes before I was greeted. And, that was after having to flag a waitstaff member down. There were many members present, they just didn’t seem to sense a need to offer water or another beverage upon my arrival, nor offer an apology for waiting. The food was delicious, as well as the outdoor seating.

Went for my birthday. I always have a good experience here. This time, the crab cakes tasted great but the fries were very dry, maybe a little over cooked. Other than that, the ambiance was nice and I felt comfortable with the barriers in place.

Went for a date night, was quiet for a Saturday night although it was still early (6pm). Brought warm sour dough bread out and took drink order. Ordered crab cakes for appetizer and they were pretty good. We both had Alaskan Halibut special, came with two sides. It was cooked really well and we both enjoyed. Butter cake for dessert was amazing, highly recommend.

The food is very good. The place is listed on Open Table as "$$". It really should be "SSS". Dinner for two with free flowing "house" wine was $150. before tip, which is not a medium priced meal. I didn't mind paying, as it was worth it. I just think the listing should be corrected.

One of our favorite spots. Consistent food quality, service and love the bar drinks. Avocado crab toast is my absolute favorite. Also, the sand dabs are delish!

The service, food abs drinks were great as always however there were repairs being done on the side of the building literally right next to where we were sitting. The workers were yelling (to hear each other) and using loud equipment. Seemed odd to be doing that while business was open and customers sitting right there!

This restaurant is one of the best restaurants in orange county. I cannot say one negative thing about it. Food is awesome, The staff is awesome, I absolutely love their clam chowder. And the beet salad is is incredible. I love fried food and their platter that has shrimp, scallops and fish on it is absolutely amazing.

I really enjoyed my evening dining on the patio. Our food was delicious. The best part was actually the service. What put my server, Maureen, over the top was that she recognized immediately that I was ordering low-fat, no carb food, and she immediately said, “Based on your order, I won’t bring you any bread.” Then at the end of the meal, she also said she wouldn’t offer the dessert menu. Way to go supporting me without me saying a word!!! She also brought out extra drink refills before we had to ask. I made sure she was tipped 25%.

We made a 7:00 pm Saturday outside seating reservation for 6 and were immediately seated when we arrived on time in their large nicely fenced outside patio. Our server quickly took our drink order, delivered them then took our main order. All our orders were delivered as we had ordered. The two granddaughters had sushi while three of us had the macadamia crusted Alaskan halibut (a favorite). Everything was excellent as usual and it was easy to talk outside on a fairly warm evening. The servers were excellent and we even had a complimentary dessert for an adult’s birthday. We come here often before an Anaheim Duck’s home game. Enjoy!

The food is amazing except for the host refused to change our table. She gave us a table with no umbrella and exposed to the sun, when there is a lot of empty tables away from the sun.. The male waiter assigned to our table was the one who relocated us to a better table away from the sun. That was really nice of him. He made sure we are comfortable to our new table even though he lost us as his customer.
