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!

Our waitress was amazing and the calamari was one of the best we’ve had!! The butter cake and ice cream was also to die for. Yummy drinks too! Not super cheap but not overpriced either!

This was our first visit and did not know what to expect. We made a reservation and showed up 10 minutes early but we were seated immediately. The waiter was prompt and courteous. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. The food came quickly and was outstanding. This day was my birthday so we received a free dessert. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food. The surroundings are nice and would say above an Olive Garden but not a 5 star place like Ruth Chris steak house. This restaurant is located in a very nice area surrounded by many restaurants close to Tempe Town Lake, so it has a young vibe to it.

Great location by the Tempe Market Place mall area. Wide variety of fresh seafood and great cocktails. Our server was very helpful and energetic with helping us decide what to order. Our group shared oysters, crab cakes, a sushi roll and then four different entrees that were all excellent! We will be back in the near future!

Fish was good. Sides of spinach and macaroni and cheese were cold. Asked for more bread which we never received. Sad since we spent $360.00 for the total bill.

Normally the service is awesome here. Our server wasn’t awesome. Wasn’t even close. Would have been a 5 star visit but for him. Just seemed bothered to have to help us. We also had a large party as well. I typically tip 30 plus percent. He got 15 ....

Always a d great spot for seafood in a city with few seafood options. The oyster sampler is a unique treat and never disappoints. The only other city with oyster samplers that are as good (at least 6 varieties) is Halifax, NS. The lobster roll is to die for, especially the Connecticut (drawn butter, rather than mayonnaise) version is especially good. Our service was friendly and impeccable as usual. Just a great experience all around.

Outstanding service but food was just OK. I got the Louie salad and the crab tasted left over and the shrimp was tough. My friend got a shrimp appetizer and it was also tough.

My halibut entree was amazing!!! However my husband ordered the fried shrimp that came with fries and we could clearly tell, since he works in the restaurant business, that the fries were either double dropped or the oil needed to be changed. We asked for new fries to see if chef, in fact, had double dropped and they came back very dark and over saturated, which means their fryer oil needed to be changed.

The shrimp and crabmeat louie salad was large enough to share and very fresh. The shrimp cocktail by the pound was very good but pricey. The sea bass was very good but also a little pricey. The butter cake for dessert was loved by all except for me as I thought it much too sweet.

Great place to have seafood, we started off with some crab cakes then I tired the seasonal salmon risotto and it was very good. My wife had her usual miso seabass which is always great. Our friends were first timers and they said the fish n chips were very good.

Able to sit outside. Separate gluten free menu with many options. Service was very good, manager even checked in. Both fish prepared perfectly. Good recommendation from server to help with choices and he gave perfect description. Large salads prior to meal. New England fish house ambiance.

Service, very good. Nice ambience.
Oysters, excellent. Bread and butter, very good.
Crab cakes, mushy, bland and couldn't find the crab.
Alaskan sand dabs, bland and forgettable. No browned butter sauce as the menu described.
Side of Mac n cheese was a disgrace. Lukewarm tough pasta, no discernible sauce or cheese. Again, bland!
They upcharge $ 2.50 for grilled asparagus.
Bread pudding was more of a solidified custard. Completely underwhelming.
Prices are on the high side, and I regret having to say, I've had better quality meals at Red Lobster.

We’ve had seafood in a lot of places (including Fisherman’s Wharf in SF) and I can honestly say I’ve never had better seafood than King’s Fish House in Tempe. We have been there more than a dozen times and it has never been less than perfect. I highly recommend King’s.

The bad news is that our first visit to King's Fish House set the bar very high as far as expectations for future visits.
The good news is that on all of our subsequent visits that expectation has been met or exceeded. this place has become a default go-to for us - when we are entertaining visitors and want a nice night out, or just a special dinner for ourselves - Keep up the excellent work, Kings.
