Fun place to eat with very good choices

Had the yellow tail grilled and it was excellent. Others in our party had shrimp and scallops and were pleased. Nice atmosphere and good wait staff. Will return for sure.

I suppose I should say that we had some disappointing restaurant experiences prior to trying King's. That said for our last evening in Carlsbad, King's didn't disappoint. I started with Mexico's Laguna Bay oysters which were buttery and slightly briny, very good. My wife and I both ordered the grilled halibut and the fish was done absolutely perfectly. The service...

Date night with my wife while on vacation and this was a great place to do it! It's king crab season at the moment and for $38 you can get a pound or for about $47 you can add a half-pound more. I went with the one pound order and it was perfect. I had a baked potato and asparagus... More

We decided to have a seafood dinner and Kings Fish house had some good reviews. I had been here once a long time ago and had forgotten how good it is. We sat down and were immediately greeted by a very friendly and very knowledgeable server. Her name was Kelly. She was one of the best servers I have had... More

Kings Fish House serves up very good food. A little pricey but very good. Main dinning room can get noisy, so if possible and the weather cooperates, sit out on the patio.

I was very disappointed in the meal I ordered at this restaurant. The happy hour pear margarita was quite yummy although a little sweet. I ordered the $30 Alaskan Halibut which was way overcooked and I'm not sure it was the freshest it could have been. I ended up eating the baked potato and some of the overly garlicked spinach....

On our way home from SD, great service, Samm has been awesome. Great attention to the kids, full menu activity books, so they were happy. Not to forget about the food, really nice as well... ;-)

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

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.
