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!

The atmosphere was themed, but elegant. The service we received was wonderful and things were done quickly. Our food was prepared quickly and was delicious. The appetizers were delicious and left me almost too full to eat anything. My fish was good, but slightly over cooked so it wasn’t as buttery as I was expecting. The brussel sprouts side was amazing! I was there with my family ranging from kids age 6 to adults age 65. There was something for everyone. We really enjoyed it.

We are from California where fresh seafood is abundant so when we come to Arizona the only place we go for fish is the King
Fish House. However last night our fish dinner was just mediocre. We were very disappointed.
Bread so tough you couldn’t chew, garlic mashed potatoes so dry didn’t eat them. I had cioponni that had plenty of seafood, but little flavor.
Service was so very pleasant and attentive. Host was extremely helpful since our reservations was not there and we even had a conformation from open table.

Over all will think twice before going again

Love this place!! Had 6:30 reservations on a busy Sat night and got set as we arrived right on time!!! Impressive!
We like their large booths for 4 people. Lots of room and easy to talk. Food was great as always - rated a 4 instead of 5 food tate because the buttered carrots were under cooked. All else excellent!!

Started out on a sour patch (we waited 20 minutes or more without being recognized after being seated) but it was saved by Cassie, the manager. She jumped in and got our drinks and food done in reasonably good time. The food was excellent. Desserts on the house was a great touch. We’re going to be back to see if the service is better.

Great service. Menu was impressive, but food was mediocre. Of our $200 meal the best parts were sushi appetizer and dessert butter cake. King crab was good, but it is hard to believe that 1 leg and 1 claw equal 1 pound. The dining room was clean, but poor lighting made me wonder what they were hiding. Overall, we found the restaurant one step up from Red Lobster.

Nice place, the service was rushed even though it was half empty. We were placed next to another couple even though there was plenty of space elsewhere in the restaurant. I was valentine's day so I guess they were expecting more diners. Food was really good. The bread brought to our table was cold and stiff but still had a good taste. We ordered edamame and it came hot on top, cold on the bottom. The edemamie needed more seasoning and a dipping sauce. We ordered oysters, they were fantastic. The linguini with clams was very tasty. The white fish with with pecan crust was also very good. The brussel sprouts were 2 dollars extra and not worth the price, i can get better spouts at Walmart frozen food section. Key lime pie was very sweet, in fact too sweet, seems they forgot that key lime pie is about the lime. Overall not bad place, just too costly for meager amount of food. Probably won't return, Thank you.

I had Valentine's day with my girl friend. We throughly enjoyed it. From the appetizers, clam chowder, backed muscles with dynamite sauce (amazing), wonderful bread, to our amazing dinners, crab cakes and shrimp and scallops. It was all so delicious. It's a little loud in there but it was ok. The atmosphere is lively and fun.

The entire staff was top notch. We visited King’s Fish House for my husband’s birthday. The adults enjoyed seafood while the kids enjoyed chicken and fries. Everything was delicious. What really made it a great experience, though, was how genuine and kind the staff was to our two kids. Love this place!

Made reservations. When I arrived there was no table for me and my date. Host and hostess didnt know what to do and said they didn't have any clean tables. We ended sitting in the bar which was open seating, so defeated the purpose of making a reservation in the first place. Food was ok, service was adequate for a bar service. Would recommend but just would suggest walking in instead

We had drinks at the bar prior to dinner. The bartender was very nice and attentive. We were seated in a nice area and it was easy to hear each other, which we appreciated. We had a few appetizers and salads and entrees. our server was pleasant and helpful. Everyone loved what they had! I would highly recommend this restaurant to my friends.
