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 time. Hafeez gave us great service. New England clam chowder was great. My two lobster tails were terrific - large and flavorful. I ordered sautéed spinach (which was good but could have had more garlic) and roasted cauliflower. My wife had the scallops and shrimp combo with asparagus and multi-colored roasted carrots, and she was very happy with all of it. The key lime pie and butter cake were solid desserts. All in all, a solid meal at a good value with great service.

    My boyfriend and I went here for a date and loved it. It was chilly for an AZ night, but we were still able to eat on the patio where they have it heated. By heated I don’t mean a spot was heated the whole felt warm enough to take off our jackets. I had the roasted chicken and it was delicious. Along with a great atmosphere and food, the service was on point. I would highly recommend this spot.

    Food was amazing. One of the best restaraunt meals I have had in awhile. Portions were small but that is happening everywhere. Hard when you have 18-20 something boys to feed. But we had really good food and a really nice time.

    Food was good. Messed up my friends order and was out of the mashed potatoes he ordered and never offered anything for the trouble. We were almost done eating by the time he finally got his meal. Tuna poke was really good.

    Our server was outstanding. However, the fish and chips had too much breading and wasn't cooked well. The macadamia nut crusted Alaskan halibut was overcooked on one side, so that the nut crust was almost black and hard to cut through. The bacon in the Brussel sprouts was overcooked and hard. Too many mistakes for such high priced food.

    We had reservations for 645, we were seated immediately we had a great waiter. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather with a small heater on top of this for comfort, I'm quite the foodie from Oregon and this was one of the finest establishments I think I've visited here in a long time, they care about their food they care about their staff they care about their customers, great job. Great food. Great time best, Long Island. I've ever had.

    I don’t know how to write this as I have loved Kings Fish in the past whenever it was my husband and me. However, the last two times that I brought my family and we had a party of 6, the service and food failed. Today we had a reservation for 6 at 5 pm specifically to avoid a rush. It was terrible. At 5:45 we received our drinks and bread. The water, nor bread were refilled, even after asking. They said the bread was in the oven. After 15 minutes, still no bread. Why couldn’t they at least give us an update that the bread was still baking. At this point I was hangry. We had 2 orders of crab legs and we had to ask for drawn butter. ☹️ I drank all my water but there was no offer to refill. I couldn’t even get the server’s attention. This is why I have directed my meals to home and purchased my high end meats and seafood from AJ’s grocery so I can control my own service, food and drink. Goodbye to restaurants and the poor service.

    Birthday dinner with mixed reviews on the food but no one was disappointed. Service was great - perhaps a bit slow at times - but the server’s personality made up for it. Would visit again.

    My husband and I wanted to go somewhere special for a New Year’s Eve date night. We just want to say this place is top notch! Our server was amazing and very nice. We ordered all the various East coast oysters. They were very good. My husband had a cup of clam chowder and the lobster roll. He said they were both better then we had in Maine. I ordered the beet salad and clam linguine. Both were excellent! For dessert we shared the crème brûlée. It tasted delightful. I would highly recommend this place if you truly enjoy seafood at its finest.

    King's Fish House is one of our favorites, we really like their Wild South African Lobster Tails. Best lobster I have ever had. I once tried the Wild California Spiny Lobster they have but I prefer the South African. It is a good sized meal, they give you two tails and with the sides, we found it is enough for two after getting our favorite appetizer, Blackened Shrimp Taquitos, they are delicious. You can get the Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail, a fantastic choice, we did that once, it has a great Filet and the lobster tail happens to be the Wild South African Lobster Tail, so you can't go wrong. On NYE our server Andrea was very pleasant, helpful and took very good care of us. We'll be back!

    It was our last evening in Arizona and we wanted to try some fish place. This came recommended on open table and certainly did not disappoint. A table of picky eaters tired of eating out finished our time in Arizona with much relish.
