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!

    Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We had terrific service, excellent fish, next best thing to being in Alaska, and left happy and satisfied. Only negative, we had to drive up to Tempe from Tucson to eat here. Please put one in Tucson!!

    My biggest problem is where the front door is located. I use a cane for walking and it’s a long ways around from the parking lot to the front door.

    Service was good, I could tell they were a little understaffed but our server did very well considering. The food was decently priced and was very fresh. The scallops, shrimp taquitos, and the oysters were amazing. Also, the butter dessert WAS TO DIE FOR! I was not a fan of their cocktail sauce, but everyone has their preferences. My husband ordered sushi and he rated 8/10. It was good for the price and it wasn’t too busy, which makes the environment more welcoming in my opinion. I would return and I do recommend this place.

    Awesome find while in Tempe for a business conference. Drink special was excellent and clam chowder was amazing! Filet mignon and lobster tail with Brussels Sprouts and garlic mashed potatoes were absolutely wonderful! Will definitely return next time in the Phoenix/Tempe area!!!

    First time eating here. We had 6:45 reservation and was sat fairly quickly. Waited 10-15 for drinks and server could answer questions about lobster. Ordered and wait an hour for our food. Lobster had a weird rub on it that was not mentioned anywhere in description and we had to send it back since my husband has food allergies. Steak was great but had to ask for refills of drinks. Barely saw our server. Not going back.

    Very Disappointed! We wanted to try after it being recommended to us, and we are sorry we did. My daughter ordered the halibut tacos, and they were so spicy she had to send them back. I had the seafood Cobb salad and it was just eh. The lettuce looked like it came from the cheap salad bags and the seafood was flavorless and seemed to just be something that was just defrosted. Our bill for lunch for two came to $65 and it just was not worth it. We won't be back.

    Everyone is super-nice, the food is great, and it is among my favorite restaurants in the city. It has the best most incredible bread, and it is for sale to take home… I wish I knew the names of the other people that have helped me, every single one of them is special.

    We used to really like this restaurant but we were quite disappointed in the food on our recent visit. I had the macadamia nut crusted halibut, and it was dry and over cooked, and the carrots were so cooked they were black. My husbands crab cakes were just fair. And, they said they had run out of baked potatoes. At 6:00 p.m.? We won’t be back.

    Had a good dinner, as usual. Enjoy the wide selection of fresh fish. However, we had 2 issues this time. I asked if I could substitute a salad for two sides, I was told yes. Then there was a $1 change on our bill doing this. It seemed petty to charge a dollar for this substitution. Then, my dining partner ordered two sides that were included in his dish, a baked potato and asparagus. He was not told there would be an upchange, but there was a $2.75 fee on the bill for asparagus. When he questioned it, the server took it off. These small issues left us feeling a little bit taken advantage of. This is the first time we have encountered this; we go to Kings Fish House in Tempe about 4 times a year, we have always been satisfied.

    A great fresh seafood option. This was our first time at Kings. The fresh oyster selection was excellent and our entrees were very good. The fish portions on the entree dishes (halibut and sea bass for us) were large. It wasn't too busy for a Friday night and not loud. We were seated in an area that was a little dark (many around us used their phones to read the menu) but our server was great and all in all we had a great dinner. We'll be back.
