Good Food

Went to King's with family (6 of us). We had made a reservation and were seated quickly after arriving. We were given menus by the hostess, then our waiter came by and took our drink orders. We also ordered a calamari for our appetizer. When our drinks arrived, we were also given warm... read more

We had three servers help our table. The first one got frustrated opening the wine so put the unopened bottle on our table and mumbled someone else would need to help us as she walked away. The second was really slow. Without our asking she then introduced us to a third one. That all being said the food was excellent!... More

Oysters Fresh. Amazing. First of all our waiter was top notch. Perry showed my kids a live lobster, tour of the oyster shucking. They loved it. My son wanted to tell the manager how he felt and did. Everything was great an awesome experience and left there feeling great. Beer was good IPA.

This is a terrific seafood place, the ambience is great fun for the whole family...so relax and enjoy your dinner! We had two little ones ages 6 and 3... And the staff were so accommodating . The booths are super large so we had enough room for booster seats and "stuff". We were also strategically escorted to an area with... More

My husband and I went to dinner with another couple. We ended up spending several hours talking as well as eating and the service was excellent the entire time. Our friends had sushi while we ate salads and a shrimp appetizer. My husband really liked the Southwestern salad. The Walnut with Blue Cheese salad was my pick. Lots of yummy... More

Just visited this place while vacationing Legoland for the weekend. The food was just "ok", no sparks and not star dishes. We ordered the appetizer that had fried calamari, shrimp, and crab cakes. The crab cakes were good, but the remoulade sauce was not, It was runny and missing flavor. I also got the fish and chips and it was... More

We have come to eat here over the past few years, and the price has gone up consistently while the quality and the offering has not. We enjoy the warm bread, and some of the veggies/side dishes. However, while the fish may be fresh, the 40% increase in price over the past year has taken away from the popularity of... More

Just arrived in San Diego needed dinner and decided to give this place a try. The blackened Catfish was too spicy, the zucchini was grilled only on one side. NOT that impressed with the food. The service was good, our waitress was very attentive, so I give her a 5.

The food was just average. I was not crazy about the clam chowder or my salmon. My husband didn't care for his mussel and scallops. Service was good.

For a chain (I think) I was impressed by the decor and service. Our waiter was very attentive and just the right amount of checking in. We enjoyed rainbow roll, crunchy shrimp and tuna rolls- all well done. Mould have been rolled tighter but flavor was there. I definitely will return to try other things on menu.
