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!

Rick was one of the most professional food and beverage servers by whom my wife Mary and I have had the good fortune of being served. We will be certain to ask for him the next time we visit in the Spring.

Came here on a Saturday night, we were heading to a concert. Reservations for 6pm (concert started at 8pm) we were sitted right away, service was SLOW. We ordered our food at 635, didn't get food until 715, we made it to the concert at 755pm.

One would assume that giving a 2 hour buffer would be plenty, but at this night.

It was noisy on the patio but the food was great and Teresa’s suggestions were spot on.
We will be back!

Food is great and staff attention and attitude also good. Uncertain what is happening when management switches out staff across tables during dinner service? This created a serious delay in receiving our main meal. Manager took care of us so that still makes King’s great but suggestion to just let servers finish the meal with each table.

Drink service came out quickly, but then it seems like things slowed down afterwards.
Temperature and presentation of the food was “meh”.
Our server was very nice, but guessing he had too many tables to manage.

Overall very good. They were short-staffed, which is common now. The busgirl & waitress were doing there best & stepping in wherever they could- not their fault. But we were there far too long & waited for our check

Although we had reservations for a table, we decided to sit at the bar because the weather was so fair and the windows were open at the bar. The bar service was terrible. We had to send back my wife's margarita because it wasn't made as we asked (no orange juice). The bartender then took her drink order and put it at the back of the list (or the spiteful "I hate you list"). Since the restaurant was busy, it took 20 minutes to re-make the margarita. I had already finished my cocktail before my wife got hers. Then, the "cherry on top": when she finally served the margarita with no orange juice, it had a huge orange slice in it. REALLY.

The oysters were fresh and super delicious. My wife's crab cakes were about average but my Chilean sea bass was amazing; I'll call it best in town. The roasted carrot side order was seasoned perfectly and was an excellent dish. We'll be back if you can work out the snippy bartender problem.

The first time we ate here was great. It was a weeknight and we ordered fresh grilled fish. But tonight was a Friday night, it was noisy, we just had crab cakes, calamari, and bbq shrimp appetizer, which were all greasy and disappointing. But the margaritas were really good!
