“Good food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Kingfish has some great views of the river, the bridges and the city. The restaurant and bar are very nice as well. We like the food here, too. Can't say that it's the best seafood, but it's pretty good. Their hush puppies and fried green tomatoes are good.

“Ok food. Good service. Terrible entertainment.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Food was ok. As another reviewer stated, it all tasted alike. The hush puppies were the best thing on my plate. Service was good. Our server, Andrew, was very engaging and kept our drinks filled. The band was playing music I liked, however, as with a lot of songs played on the radio, there is a "clean" version and a version with curse words. Unfortunately, this band was performing the cursing version. I know it's hard for some people to understand, but not everyone curses. It's a sad day in America when you can't even take young children out to a restaurant without them hearing expletives in song. But for that, we'd probably go back.

“A fairly good seafood meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We visited the King Fish Restaurant on Friday evening. Did not have to wait for seats. We had ate here serveral years ago and thought it was pretty good then. Our server was not very pleasant. She did everything, but acted like it was a chore. They forgot one item on my wifes dinner and by the time she came back to check on us and the time it took to get it, she was close to being done with her meal. All in all, it was just an average meal and average service. Would not come back again.

“Great Service / Horrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The atmosphere and our server were both great. Everyone orders something different and all our plates looked the same. It all had a thick batter, was deep fried and tasted the same (I tried my husband's fish and another friend shared her fish). The hush puppies were very good, but that's it. We left with a fairly large bill and an empty stomach. I complained to the company and asked that they do NOT contact me and/or send coupons... I will never go back :(

“Food is OK, but the view and music is great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We often take day trips to Louisville from Cincinnati. This is our favorite place to visit for an early evening dinner before we head back. The food is OK, if you stay away from fried. We like to sit outside, enjoy the band and the view and relax over dinner.
