Always good food here. We had the Nawlins Feast- salmon, voodoo shrimp and filet with rice and fried green tomatoes. Wasn't sure if I'd like it cause I'm not a spicy food person. But it was not over seasoned. Steak was very tender, salmon not fishy and three good sized shrimp. First time for fried green tomatoes, pretty good and filling.
We ate early to avoid crowds and maintain distancing. We felt safe and staff all wore masks. Waitress was efficient but not overly friendly. I would definitely come here again.

It’s ok but not as fancy I would have expected. Asked for something for my wife’s birthday and nothing. Not a big deal, but disappointing. Fish not as fresh as I would have expected

The calamari appetizer was so greasy that we couldn’t even eat it. The Taste of N’awlins special was horrible! The salmon and filet were the only things on the plate worth eating. The fried green tomatoes were so greasy and the cornbread had no flavor. The rice was not good and the sauce on the shrimp ruined them. I usually love the food at Kingfish but this was so bad that I’m not sure I would even go back.

They were out of lobster tails and delmonico ribeye. Both were the reasons we went there. Server wasn’t very welcoming at all. Didn’t speak. Just poured water, left and came back and stared at us.

They were out of two of the things on their menu, including lobster tail which was a Valentine’s Day special with surf and turf. Swapped out the lobster with crab, which was served ice cold additionally charged the SAME price for surf and turf and we didn’t even get the lobster. The service was slow as I’m assuming the kitchen was busy but regardless we waiting over an hour before even getting our appetizers. I will say the best thing we had was the lobster bisque which I would eat again, but everything else was extremely mediocre for how pricey the meal was. We will likely not be back.

From the reservation the the end of the meal, everything was excellent. My wife and I had our 50th wedding anniversary and seeing how the Covid had control on our original plans this was a very nice exchange. We started a bowl of Lobster Bisque which was excellent, a 4 piece shrimp cocktail. The she had the Surf and Turf cooked to perfection. I had the Seafood Trio, equally done to perfection and to top it off a cream brulee for dessert. A couple drinks and a perfect night.

Thank you Kingfish

We dined on 2/13 for Valentine’s Day and my birthday and had a wonderful experience. We had the special for 2 that included the most delicious lobster bisque for each of us, a filet and lobster served with mashed potatoes and perfectly done asparagus. Followed by that, we each elected to take our dessert home. However, I was surprised by a complimentary creme brûlée in house for my birthday. It was one of the best creme brûlée desserts I have had the experience of enjoying! We also enjoyed our cheesecake the next day and they were divine and came with a trio of berries and homemade whipped cream. Our server Jim was personable and funny and took great care of us. We truly enjoyed our experience and will be back. The highlights for me were the bisque and the brûlée, but everything was delicious.

Simply a substandard effort from the kitchen, which slowed service considerably.Poorly presented dishes with vegetables (Brussel sprouts) literally heaped on the plate, covering the tablespoon of sweet potato mash and scallops. Lukewarm, heatlamp?, upon arriving at the table. Just a poor effort.

We enjoyed the Surf& Turf special. Scallops and beef medallion were excellent. Mashed potatoes not so much. Wouldn't you think they could make mashed potatoes? These were not house made.
We enjoyed the Key Lime dessert, too.

We have been to Kingfish many times just to meet friends and family or for special celebrations. The service and food have remained consistent and the quality is excellent. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food is delicious and always done right. I highly recommend this restaurant if you love seafood (and steak). However, it's not on the inexpensive side, so save your dollars and come here for your special dinner. Worth every penny.
