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!

We were accommodated in a nice large area that was quite private and quaint. I highly recommend the dining experience especially the fresh oysters and the crab cakes.

Went on a Tuesday for my Birthday. Service was excellent and the food was amazing. Started with crab cakes which were crunchy on the outside and perfect in the middle. Wife had the blackened shrimp and scallops. Good sized, not overcooked or over seasoned, they were delicious. I had the yellowfin tuna seared medium-rare, which was good but the scallops were better. Overall it was a great dining experience and we will be back!

My husband and I are always on the look out for a tasty fish dinner. We tried King’s Fish house for the first time tonight and it was delicious! I highly recommend the beet salad to start and the butter cake to finish. We shared the macadamia nut halibut and it was perfect! Fresh and delicious. Our server Ryan was attentive and provided spectacular service. Awesome start to a perfect date night. Thank you King’s- we will be back soon!!

Food and service was good. Up charge for side of 5 pieces of undercooked asparagus with $28 dollar modest lunch serving of wild salmon seemed excessive and confusing. Halibut which included two aides was cooked properly. Overall an enjoyable experience.

We celebrated my birthday dinner on Saturday and had a wonderful evening. Service was attentive, yet not overbearing. They made helpful suggestions with our meal and the Manager checked in later in the meal to ensure we were happy. Apps, meals, and dessert were all delicious. We hadn’t been to Kings in some time, but will need to come for dinner again soon.

The food was delicious and thoughtfully prepared with fresh ingredients. The service was terrible. The waitress kept making statements trying to convince us that it was just a one off situation & kept apologizing for the slow service. The restaurant was fairly empty on a non-busy Sunday being at 7:30. Just not a great service experience. We also thought that it was extremely odd and incredibly inconvenient that they couldn’t bypass our debit/credit pins. We were asked one by one to get up and enter our PIN numbers as our bills were cashed out. I can’t imagine that on a busy night that they would have dozens upon dozens of customers get up and go to the register to enter PIN numbers.

Service was slow and bad. Took over an hour to get a cup of soup. Fish was over cooked and dry. Scallops lacked flavor. Have had better meals at the same restaurant in the past.

From Crab legs halibut, oysters, sea bass all were prepared perfectly Our server Amy was so very knowledgeable in guiding us through the menu and always there when we needed her without hovering. .

Waiter was aloof. Not very attentive and not rude but not friendly either. It was not very busy. We had a specific question about one meal prep due to dietary constraints and he didn’t confirm with us after we ordered until we flagged him down. Brussels sprouts were over cooked with a distinct charred flavor. The Ono was ordered medium and was dry. The salmon was ordered same way and was under cooked. Since it was not busy we stayed and talked for extended period of time. He never refilled our water after the bill was paid and we stayed about an hour after that. He picked up the check before we left, my experience is that the wait staff waits until the party leaves, unless perhaps the shift is ending, but his was not. I have eaten here many times before and have been pleased with food and service, but not on this occasion.

The portions were very small. His Swordfish was tiny!
I paid $13 for a cadillac margarita....it was tiny! Prices too high for mediocre sea food. My lobster was small, the petite sirloin overcooked all for...$ 52...? Come on....

It was for a birthday. They offered no birthday treat. I will not go here or recomend it. There are too many restaurant options to spend money and get small portions and pay $160 for 2 people.

I had ONE drink he had 2 beers at 9$ a piece!

Step it up fish house I'm assuming you can see this in your sales! Barrio Queen will be a huge dent in sales.
People go to eat seafood expecting amazing seafood. Not mediocrity.

Fish was incredible. Sushi was the freshest we've had here in AZ. Everything was great. Smallest complaint, if I were to make one, interior is a bit dated but, hey, that old school look might appeal to some.
But very enjoyable experience all around, will definitely be back!

Steak was asked to be medium, it was very rare (only seared) after sending back, it was charred and flavorless. Salmon was bland and no seasoning and risotto was undercooked. We enjoyed the beet salad and the African lobster tail.

I haven’t been here in a few years and forgot how great the food is and how many choices there are. Recently some friends came into town and went there for dinner and loved it, so we decided to go back again and it was really good. Aidan was our waiter and her was exceptional and very nice to our elderly guest who was celebrating her 93 birthday. I had the shrimp and scallop dinner and it was excellent. Another person in our group had the swordfish. The serving size was great as each came with two sides, and there are many sides to choose from. Aidan told the birthday girl that she had a choice of desserts on them. We will definitely be back soon.

This was our second visit to King's and it did not disappoint. Their menu is broad and offers something for everyone. Oysters were fresh, served in a nice presentation. Halibut and parmesan crusted sand dabs were perfectly cooked and delicious. Generous portions of side dishes. Both the dessert menu and the drink menu have many choices. Restaurant was loud.

This was the BEST meal and the BEST service we have ever had at Kings!! Rich waited our table like we were the only people there. He was patient in answering our questions and got every detail of our meal just right. The salmon was exquisite and all the food was hot to the table. The coffee was still hot after I added the milk!! Thanks for a great evening!!
