There were five of us including two children. I tried the seasonal crab which is a full crab in its soft shell stage...wouldn't do it again but had to experience the dish. We were all happy with our meals and drinks. The service was enthusiastic and very good

VERY pricy, but the atmosphere is worth it. Excellent drinks and the food is really good. Was disappointed in the Sauteed clam dish, though. Their soups are spicy. Flavorful, though.

Here as a family for dinner while visiting LEGOLAND. The tuna in the poke was obviously not fresh and the rockfish was so overcooked that it couldn't be eaten regardless of how much sauce and tartar sauce I slathered on it. Very disappointing.

Our dinner at King's was very good. The seafood was excellent (I had the Ono)...pricing was a little above average, but not out of sight. We would return.

Oysters, Clams, Crab all very good. Pricey but worth it. Got a great view of the 4th of July Fireworks.

Delicious food and the staff was very nice. We had more of a snack here, and that was still just under $100. Supposed to be family friendly but a lone sign directing kids to see the lobsters does not make it kid friendly in my opinion.

We had a party of 13 and the wait staff was able to take care of us in a timely manner. The food was excellent! Everything was good. The fish and chips were fresh, crab cakes moist, sushi excellent, and the key lime pie was the most authentic I've seen in a restaurant.

Great wait staff. They are very knowledgable and accommodating to any requests. The food is good. Our group had the raw oysters, clam chowder, fish & chips, halibut tacos. All very good. Definitely save room for dessert. The key lime pie was great. The salted caramel ice cream sandwich was delicious!

Used to love this place but the last 2 visits have left me disappointed. The place is always crazy crowded in the evening and apparently these folks do not understand the concept of what exactly a "dinner reservation" represents. My party of 3 was not seated timely, even though there were lots of open tables available. The menu is far... More
