good food in carlsbad

Even though this restaurant is in the tourist area it has a feel of a neighborhood establishment. We enjoyed our meal and the service was good. I would love to go back but live to far away. We ate in the bar room which has a 60s look but the restaurant is not very old. The prices are reasonable... read more

Consistently Good Seafood I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is always very good and reasonably priced. There are so many good dishes on the menu that it is hard to choose - everything is so good. It is hard to pick a favored. There is hardly ever a wait in the main restaurant area. Sit at the bar area... More

My wife loved the clam chowder here. I had a dish here and when I went back the following year, they no longer have it. I can't find it anywhere and I can't remember that darn dish (tuna). I might have to travel to Hawaii to find it. Its a bit pricey but the food is great and when we... More

I can highly recommend this restaurant. I have eaten here many times and the consistency and value are always very high. I especially enjoy the open seating with no waiting in the patio area. There is less noise and I can enjoy a conversation. My wife had the sand dabs which were buttery and truly delicious and I had my... More

Met a friend for dinner...good food, good service, reasonable and yet we weren't continually interrupted by our server (I hate that constant checking) so that we could visit and enjoy the meal.

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
