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!

    Food was good … oysters very fresh and I like the multiple choices of garnish. Unfortunately our server wasn’t all that pleasant. I think she was having a bad day and it showed. She wasn’t very friendly or social.

    We went for dinner on Valentines Day. We had made a reservation and got right in. Our waitress, Ashley, was wonderful. She made sure we were well taken care of even though her section was very busy. The food came out quickly after we ordered and it was hot and very tasty. I would definitely recommend King's Fish House.

    Thefood was very good--we both had swordfish, which we both liked. The baked potato was both good and large--what does the farmer feed those potatoes? For desert we split a butter cake. Excellent. The wait staff was attentive.

    I have been here several times. Each time the food was prepared to our liking and service has been wonderful. Last night, for the first time,it was an off night. Hard to mess up a Caesar salad with a piece of fish but it happened. The lettuce was old and wet enough that you couldn’t taste the Caesar dressing. I searched to find 3 croutons and the salmon was not well seasoned. The server was not attentive so I was not able to address my concerns. We were in a bit of a time crunch so we paid the bill and left. Given our past experiences we will go back to hopefully find it was just one bad night.

    We were set by the secondary front door which also serves as the bar sitting area. The table was also directly across from the back door which led to an outside seating area, this door anytime exited or entered remained opened until our waitress had to take her time to continuously shut it as to not let the cool draft in. This along with the ongoing slamming of the secondary front door made for an unpleasant experience. The service by our waitress along with the sourdough bread were the best parts of the restaurant. The food was subpar, shrimp overcooked, the items we ordered from the dinner menu including sides were all under seasoned. Honestly was expecting more from this place based off reviews but we were very underwhelmed. Again service was really excellent, highlight of the dinner.

    Per usual, food was out of this world! Fish is always fresh and delicious. Salads, soups and sides are just as amazing. Ashley, our server, was outstanding! Used to be our date night go to and since COVID, we stopped going out as much. Such a delight when we do go out, to have excellent food and excellent service!!

    Got the wrong food to start, Manager and waitress apologized and made it right. The yellow tail was bland, tasted like no spices were added to the filet. We ate at the San Diego resturaunt twice and really enjoyed our meal, this was our first time to this location in Phoenix, and was a bit disappointed.

I had the shrimp and scallops along with fresh spinach and carrots and bread pudding with their own vanilla ice cream. My friend had the Tuna Melt for that wonderful comfort Food taste as well as bread pudding for dessert. Everything was great!

    We had a good experience with King's Fish House. First, I would like to ask; Why do restaurants put their rudest employees at the hostess station?, I don't understand. This is our first impression of your business and we already want to leave. Aside from this, we had a great server and the food was delicious. We will go back.

    The beet salad and clam chowder were delicious. But, the raw oysters on the half-shell were a disappointment. The horseradish cup was barely there with small shreds of horseradish. Plus, they placed them up high on a rack and were hard to reach from a booth seat.

    I had the King’s Platter. It was excellent! It was one large piece of cod in beer batter. It was shrimp and scallops breaded and fried. I usually don’t eat fried food, but this was outstanding, fresh, made just right. My husband had six oysters, and a whole Dungeness crab. He enjoyed the oyesters with fresh horseradish. He said the crab was very good. It is a lot of work to eat, but he’s good at it. It’s too messy for me, The waitress was helpful. It got busy after 6:30 pm.

    King's Fish House has a really diversified menu so there is something for everyone--especially seafood lovers. I had the Macadamia crusted Halibut which was served with a nice lemon sauce. I selected two sides--grilled zucchini and spinach, which were a nice compliment. I enjoy eating here but wish the ambience of the room was a little darker and more intimate.
