We first discovered King's in San Diego a few years ago and loved it then. Since that time, we have eaten at several of them, even though we usually shun chain restaurants. King's offers a wide ranging menu packed with delicious and fresh items. We are partial to the fresh oysters King's Fish House offers because they include fresh items... More

Based on a on-time experience, I wish I lived in the area instead of on the East Coast. I had their New Orleans style barbecue shrimp. Quite a bit different from the original developed at Pascal's Manale in New Orleans, which I've had on a number of occasions, but every bit as good and worth going out of your way... More

My wife and I often visit King's Fish House in Orange. The restaurant is near several of our favorite attractions including the Pond (now the Honda Center) and Angel Stadium. The fish is incredible. We love the Tilapia and the bread. The bread is incredible and always warm from the oven. The Ecuadorian Tilapia is succulent and cooked to perfection.... More

We live in Orange County and have tried a large number of seafood restaurants, sometimes discouraged at the lack of variety and freshness. No problem here! The menu features many many types of shellfish and fish, plus a few treats for land lubbers. My husband ordered mid-priced oysters as appetizers; they were outstanding. I had grilled artichokes, very delish and... More

This restaurant is just basically okay. Felt like a tourist restaurant that you would find next to Disneyland. Years back we used to eat at the King's Fish House in Long Beach, and I remember it being much better. Go instead to Walt's Wharf in Seal Beach or Los Alamitos Fish Company. Better food and better service. Service: Hard pressure... More

Went here while I'm Southern California lest month and of the many meals we had during the eight days it was probably one if my favorites. They served this corn side dish which was fresh and delicious. My sister requested fresh hot fries and they went over and beyond what we expected. Not only did they bring out a large... More

The only thing better at this restaurant than the food, was the atmosphere! No expense had been spared in recreating an 1800's New Orleans French quarter look and feel. The lounge was just packed with surprises, both visual and culinary. A great place to take family, friends or for a party. The staff was well trained and just completed the... More

I ordered the2 lb Dungness Crab. It was delicious. The asparagus & garlic potatoes were also great. I only gave 3 stars due to the service. Service was very slow. Disappointing since they weren't busy at all. Took 15 minutes for a menu, which was a red flag. It took even longer for dessert to arrive.

After staying in the hotel for 3 days at a conference I had to go out. King's was recommended and I was not disappointed. I am from the south so I don't get oysters very often. King's had 10 different oysters from the east and west coast. I had the James River oysters from Chesapeake Bay. They were fresh and... More

We've never been disappointed eating here. You can either sit on the restaurant side or in the bar. The menu is the same, but we prefer the bar side. They have large booths and the setting is casual and comfortable. Try the Nawlins BBQ shrimp. It's spicy and delicious. I always use up all the sour dough bread to sop... More
