I've eaten a number of times at Kingfisher over the years. I appreciate that they are open late for a post-movie meal, and they aren't afraid to seat a lone woman at a primo table or booth. They always have a good selection of beer, both bottled and on tap. During the summer they offer a changing "Road Trip" menu that celebrates foods from different parts of the country.
A friend and I recently celebrated our birthdays and as is our custom, we went to Kingfisher. We toasted each other with champagne cocktails, and shared a huge bowl of mussels in a delectable spicy broth; that and lots of bread to sop up the broth would be a meal in itself. But noo-ooo, we had to each order an entree. I ordered a fantastic plate of pecan-encrusted scallops, perfectly cooked and tender; it came with black beans and a slaw. My friend ordered the lobster roll; I'm not a lobster fan but the bite I tried was pretty good. We couldn't let our birthdays go by without cake, so we ordered the piñon pound cake to share, thinking it would be a single slice and not too filling. To our delight and dismay it was three or four slices, topped by ice cream and drizzled over with cajeta, a sweet caramelized goat's milk used as a sauce in Mexican kitchens. By now we were totally stuffed
Service is always professional and I appreciate the wait staff NOT introducing themselves. They are knowledgeable about the food and a companionable beverage to go with it. The booths and tables are far enough apart that even when the restaurant is busy, you can still have a conversation without having to shout.
