First experience, not to bad.

Had a great meal. Menus printed twice a day. Very up to date setup. Great service. Dining outside was pleasant. I can see myself heading back.

Great selection of fresh cold East and West coast oysters, served with fresh hand shredded horse radish and an entire wall dedicated to hot sauces! We ate lunch at the bar yesterday. Service was friendly, attentive and happy to answer questions about the various menu selections. Blackened Mahi was fantastic! Nice selection of craft beers and wines with a few... More

Good dinner place after day at the outlet mall or Legoland. Good seafood and lot of choices for adult and kids. Family friendly atmosphere - great patio dining during summer. Recommend this when you are in the area. Tip: Got gift certificate from friend who bought them here last December. For $100, they give you $120 gift certificate.

Good service, good food, reasonable price. Family friendly! This is not upscale dining, but for the price will not disappoint.

I had a giant, whole crab with a glass of sauvignon blanc. My son had California rolls and the kid's salmon dinner. The food was great, the atmosphere was lively, and the kid's menu was a six-page activity book with temporary tattoos. Our waitress seemed a bit impatient and was a no-show throughout much of our dinner, but maybe she... More

This is the "Olive Garden" of fish restaurants. I ordered fried shrimp. I got five small panko breaded shrimp, asked for a veggie and they gave me a braised green squash, not bad. There was no garnish the shrimp were just on a plate looking lonely. For that I was charged with tip over $18.00. Service was good, food was... More

I brought my family of four to King's during our vacation. The staff were super-friendly to our kids, even helping them apply temporary fish tattoos to their arms! The food was amazing - I had the Alaskan King Crab legs and my wife had the lobster tail. Both were delicious. We also tried the New England Clam Chowder and the... More

Was with a group of nine many of whom are not adventurous eaters so King was a good choice with lots of options including very straightforward, standard dishes. I didn't eat the complimentary bread but it looked good and everyone else seemed to enjoy. Most didn't order apps. I ordered a salad as a starter and another in the group... More

Chain restaurant feel, but with a decent selection of seafood. The king crab was excellent, but the side of asparagus was a bit over seasoned with the balsamic glaze. My baked potato came out late after I was already finished...but was offered an extra side while I waited. Fresh oysters in multiple varieties are available. I might be back for... More
