We used to come here for Happy Hour but the prices kept going up and the quantities got smaller too. Have tried it for lunch a few times. Some items like the seafood Cobb are big portions but still pricey. Other items like the crab cakes are a real disappointment for a seafood place - not much crab and a... More

Came here for business lunch. Ordered the catfish. It was cooked to perfection It was great. We love the bread and it was warm from the oven. We went there a little after 11. By noon it was almost packed. The place was clean and service was good. I prefer this place compared to the red lobster.

I am from the midwest and all we get is red lobster. While not an oceanside fish market restaurant, the fish at Kings was fresh and properly prepared. The oysters we amazing as well.

You can usually be seated right away. Fast and friendly service. Food is good but a little pricey for the amount you get. The lobster is great. The spinach is too spicy. The coleslaw did not taste the same. But overall great atmosphere.

First, let me begin by saying that my wild salmon was excellent. The dish came with grilled carrots and spinach, plus rice and beans. I found everything tasty. That is the good news. However, the service was not good. For example, I fished my water and the glass had none in it. The waitress came by twice. The second time,... More

I've been going to King's for several years and it's always my first choice for a relaxing meal & martini. Can't be beat for a before or after movie meal. What better way to compare notes on the movie you just saw with a friend, than over a casual late lunch or early dinner.

King's fish House was a little hit-and-miss on some of the entrees. Some dishes were overly spicy: the sauteed spinach side dish had too much pepper, otherwise would have been delicious. The Salmon with spice rub was too hot to be enjoyed, the flavorful crust had to be removed to be eaten by two people in our party. Otherwise preparation... More

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
