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!

    Very good food. Nice atmosphere if not a bit on the noisy side. I’ve tried several items and all have been delicious.

    Usually go to the Los Angeles kings fish, but staying in Arizona and seeing something of familiarity, of course made me want to check it out. Everything was tasty, but my Nawlins’ Shrimp was barely warm. It would have taken too much time to send back so I decided to just eat it. The flavor was just as good as always I didn’t leave that special place in my stomach like it does when it’s hot.

    I really do not want to write 50 characters. If I did I would have said something even longer the first time. I’m thinking about taking a trip to Texas. Do you have any suggestion for food in San Antonio?

    My Wife & I have been to Kings at least 8-10 times this year alone, we've both noticed a significate drop in patrons and food quality. There was probably only 8-10 customers in entire restaurant, our service was still slow, but most of all our food quality was not good. We both had, Edamame and fish Tacos (protein style), I had a bowl of Seafood chowder, it was overly spiced with oregano, with no seafood to be found. Our fish was dry an old tasting, tortilla chips were stale. I'm not sure we'll be returning to this restaurant anymore.

    Excellent food as always. We had the hazelnut crusted salmon, clams linguini, and lemon nut crusted sea bass, topped off with key lime pie. Delicious. Seafood nice and fresh, cooked properly, and good sized portions. Restaurant not busy for a Sunday lunch in July but music was turned way up making it hard to converse.

    The quality of the food and the service have really declined. We go out of our way to be patient during these times of product and staffing shortages, but were very disappointed. The restaurant was well staffed but they were inattentive and sometimes rude. Food was cold by the time it was brought to us. We’ve eaten at King’s for years, (first in California, then Tempe) but we won’t be visiting again anytime soon.

    I made reservations and we were seated in the bar area! It was so warm in the restaurant that it was hard to enjoy our meal. My wife’s lobster was very good but my macadamia crusted halibut was dry, overcooked. We were disappointed having spent over $300.00

    First time and we had an amazing dinner. They are extremely kid friendly to a wonderful “book” kids menu as well as involving kids at the lobster bar and oyster bar. My daughter got to pet a lobster which she loved. Everyone was so kind. We wish we lived closer. We were in Tempe for a show at Gammage.

    Worst experience ever! I wish I could take back my last review which was outstanding. This visit was horrible from the start, we ordered everything at once I received my ice tea then before my Son got his drink they were handing me my side dish when our appetizers weren’t even there yet! We had a dz fresh oysters they had bits of shells on all of them! Then we waited and waited an hour later we asked where our dinner was. Just a few minutes more. So I get my halibut it was extremely over cooked hard on the edges and tasteless! Then I asked for my side “you didn’t get it no I sent it back”. Then the waiter comes out “you sure you didn’t get it?” Seriously do you think I stole a side dish! Then he comes back out with it and says “ I heard you refused it earlier “. Seriously no one had one ounce of management skills to handle such a simple mistake to begin with. Folks across from us was sending food back also. Terrible experience from start to finish!

    Service was terrible Nikki was our server, not even remotely friendly or attentive. If she had checked on us I could have told her my steak tasted awful!!! Not even the ketchup my son had for his fries made it better. Why bother asking when making reservations if celebrating a bday if not one mention of it while there?! Nikki only asked if we water more water when dropping off the check which we sat waiting for for nearly 15 minutes. Trust me she was NOT busy. Too many restaurants options we won’t be back.

    The waiter was not as on point as he should have been given the price point of the food also he got the order wrong so we had to wait for the food for quit awhile. My husbands Salmon was a little too under cooked but outside of that (the manager took it off the bill) it was a pretty good experience. I would definitely go back again my food was delicious!

    This was my second visit and it was still just as good as the first visit. Even better because this time they had their crab cakes available! The crab cakes were absolutely delicious and melted in my mouth 🤤. I brought my family who are visiting from Florida to come eat here. My grandmother isn’t much of a seafood eater but even she enjoyed the halibut fish! I had the Kings Seafood Platter for the first time and the fried scallops were so amazing. What’s really funny is our server was the same server from our first time visiting. Moses is always so friendly, helpful, and patient with us. He gives us the upmost superb service always and makes us feel so special. He listens to my daughters conversations even though most of what she says is in baby gibberish 😄 He always suggest desserts even though we give him a look that our bellies aren’t capable! He is just so amazing. 10:10 would recommend to anyone, even the non seafood lovers!
