King's Fish House is a restaurant where our family eats at least 3 times a month. It's close by, and they have recently changed the menu somewhat, so that it offers a little more variety. For example, this past Sunday the new item on the menu was King crab. Additionally, for the past 3 weeks the choices have been South... More

We went for dinner after a full day at Legoland. Everyone was tired, so it was nice not to have to wait. Staff were prompt and courteous. We all had some kind of seafood, and it was all great. Very fresh tasting, and well prepared. Certainly one of the best meals we've had when travelling. Prices a little on the... More

This is wonderful "local" place..at least that is what it feels like. The service is good and the food is better! Never had a bad meal there!

This restaurant has seating in th eV bar area that usually works for us. In June, the lobster specials are yerrific. And they are one of the only restaurants to serve sand dabs from Alaska. The sourdough bread is extra sour. Don't miss a slice of key lime pie for dessert...especially of you go on your birthday.

King's Fish House is just up from the ocean, so you'd think they'd have great, fresh seafood. Well... they have seafood, and it's OK, but I won't be eating there next time I'm in town. I asked the waitress (who was great) about the fish, she said most of their supplies are flown in from the East coast to the... More

We enjoy Kings a lot. Food is good, healthy, lots of options from a varied menu. They aren't on open table which is a little annoying.

Had 1/2 dozen Bluepoints to begin, one was bad, but I was brought another. That was followed by Hamachi sashimi - delicious. Caesar salad next, nicely made. Dessert was Key Lime Pie, sorry I didn't ask for second, but my belt told me no way.

Great dinner spot after day at the outlet mall and Legoland. Fresh seafood and great kid meal options. Family friendly atmosphere - great patio dining with cozy heater. Recommend this when you are in the area.
