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!

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.

We love King’s and try to go often. The only negative thing I would say is that we were outside for outside dining and there was this sewer smell that would come and go. It made us not enjoy our food as much. I noticed it the last couple of time we went back in February and then in March. It was more noticeable this last Saturday.

We are regular customers at King’s. We are always pleased with the food, the atmosphere and the servers. We were able to get a patio table which is our favorite. King’s never disappoints.
