Before the Puck Drops

Having a few drinks before the game of the NHL Western Conference finals. Restaurant is a short walk to the pond. Great food. Average service. Food sometimes takes forever to get to the table. Best clam chowder ever and great crabcakes.

I've been looking for a good Chinese food place and finally found one when we ate here. The service was wonderful and had plenty of choices. I'm glad we decided to try this place. Food is ready quickly.

I like the bar, service is always good. Fish is always prepared right. Try the halibut, sushi, and the Louisiana shrimp. Mac and cheese is just ok. Definatally worth a visit.

My dad is a super picky eater, so sometimes I dread going out to eat with him. He can be pretty hard (demanding) with wait staff. But he loves King's! Great service, good food. They keep his coffee hot and his cup filled. The food is fresh and well prepared, and the bread is to die for. This is a... More

I had high expectations for great fish because my husband and I had just eaten at the Carlsbad kings fish house last weekend and the food was so delicious we thought a 20 mile drive to kings in Orange would be worth it. We got a seat on the patio right away and our server was very attentive.....didn't bring the... More

Great service. We were seated right away, but in a very small booth. I asked our hostess, Noemi, for a bigger booth. She came back 5 minutes later, and rambled, her sentences did not make sense, she was very nervous, and just rambled incoherent words and I was too embarrassed to ask her to repeat, I basically said, "Nevermind, we'll...

We went there with a convention group and was really looking forward to it cause it was a seafood specialty restaurant. Boy was I wrong. The mixed assortment of fried calamari, shrimp, was right out of the fryer without being drained, all I could taste was the grease, my taste buds went AWOL. The Pacific Swordfish was a bit better,...

To be honest, I can't even remember the food I ate. It was very average. I do remember the Sourdough bread, and that was delicious! The service was fine, the wait was fine. But for the price we paid, I'm sure there is better seafood elsewhere.

I have not had bad food here, but I haven't had great food either. I like the restaurant and will continue to go because I like fish. Great service!
