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!

    Food and service is not as good as before. We went there last Sunday and we ordered the same thing as last time but food portions is much less. Very disappointed and won’t be back anymore.

    We celebrated 3 birthdays. We were surprised to get complimentary desserts plus a birthday discount! The food was excellent. I had the Maryland blue crabs and ate every morsel. It was the Italian style with capers on top of couscous. 2 ordered the macadamia encrusted halibut which was moist and tender and delicious. One of us ordered the wild salmon entree and enjoyed Every bite. It was a good birthday for all of us. Highly recommend this place.

    This was the best time I had at King's Fish House. My friend had wanted to go and I was able to make reservations. Shout out to Frances who was the best waiter ever! Attentive, had thoughtful food recommendations and very friendly.

    Have dined here numerous times. Today’s dining experience was not good at all. Calamari overcooked Brussels sprouts charred and not edible Salmon entree had too much salt sprinkled on top of the fish French fries salty as well

    The portions are way too small. The fish sandwich was literally 4 bites and at $20+, not a great value. Also, the salmon filet atop the salad was also about 1/2 the size of a typical restaurant. Thought the food was tasty, we left hungry and paid over $120 for lunch for 3 with no adult beverages. Won't go back.

    AUG 2022-The group of four wanted bloody Mary’s and oysters. We were pointed toward Kings Fish House and boy am I excited we were. OT reservation was on point and our server was “Ol Skool” that what he said his name was so…. His service was attentive and personable. The oyster variety tray was a great selection we could all find something we liked. Sea urchin, I’m told, tasted fresh and was complimented by a dip in a soy sauce mix. Maryland crabs, grilled prawns and sides tasted delicious. Drinks including mixed cocktails and wine were refreshing, complimentary to the menu and tasty. I saw chicken and a burger on the menu but one comes here for the seafood. Kings is on the outer skirt of Valley Fair adjacent to Steven Creek. I recommend valet which is right out front. Parking at VF sucks but first two hours complimentary

    We love the lobster roll (the bun was sooo good, the lobster was a bit overcooked), cioppino with Dungeness crab, and crispy calamari. The server, Joshua, was very nice and attentive. He made the lunch much more enjoyable.

    Thank you Ol’ School for making Ally’s birthday dinner very memorable! He was super knowledgeable about the menu and had great suggestions! He was funny/fun and got good vibes from everyone at our table. Definitely going to be visiting again and will be requesting Ol’ School to be our waiter! Only flag about King’s is some of the cocktails we ordered seemed like mostly ice, which was unfortunate. Hopefully they are able to make adjustments especially for the prices of the drinks. Food was great! All fish entree ordered were delicious! Only thing I would flag would be the mac n cheese. Very bland and taste like Kraft mac n cheese from a box. Apparently it’s made from scratch in their kitchen but there was nothing special about it. Oh and my extra side mac n cheese didn’t have breadcrumbs on top.

    The lobster and halibut were great. The mashed potatoes were really thick and would have tasted fine if they weren’t so thick. The Mac and cheese was okay. And the filet mignon was a little mediocre. For a $78 meal, the filet was a little disappointing and did not meet expectations.

    We had the buffalo wings, miso sea bass, and fish and chips. Wings were really good. Sea bass was really good. Fish and chips were meh…the batter got “uncrispy” too fast. The batter was a bit oily. The French fries were cold and looked sad. We had drinks! “Two if by sea” hasn’t disappointed me yet. Companion had a Bloody Mary and he loved it! The free bread was good too! Service was not bad but can’t say it was excellent. So, 4 stars for underwhelming fish and chips.

    One of my favorite seafood spots in the Southbay. The seafood is fresh and good quality. The ambience is nice especially when seated in the patio area. However, the indoor seatings can get noisy. The service is very good. I have not had a bad experience yet. I hope they keep it up over time.

    We were looking forward to a great birthday celebration with family. I don’t mind paying for a really good meal. Everything we ordered was just okay, really not worth the price. Our server tried his best, but it seemed he had too many tables. Appetizer plates were not cleared promptly or not at all. Be aware, parking is always an issue at a shopping mall. Sorry, but we will not be back.

    I have been to several locations in SoCal so we wanted to give this location a try. Over all the appetizers we ordered were good except the crunchy roll, too small and lack of flavor for the price. But on the other appetizers such as the Kumamoto oysters were pretty good and the buffalo wings were amazing For our main plates, the fish lacked flavor, not even lemon could save it. The sides were pretty good.

    There was barking and two dogs were not getting along. Then there was another dog, too large to be under the table, sitting in the aisle. Dogs do not belong in restaurants.
