We loved the oyster sampler. They were all very fresh and the presentation was excellent. The macadamia encruated halibut and parmesan crusted sand dabs were very good. We upgraded foe the Brussels sprouts amd grilled asparagus sides. Frankly, the standard spinach and kale sides are...better. The Brussels sprouts especially had way too much balsamic reduction rendering them way too sweet and they were partially burnt...as opposed to nicely roasted. Arrive was quite good but not outstanding.More

First time at King’s. Got their early so not busy. Our server Marcus was very helpful and patient. He had to go back to kitchen a dozen times to check ingredients did not contain onions. He recommended the Smoke on Water cocktail. That was a...wowzer so we got ingredients to make at home. Ordered the African Lobster Tails and shared dinner. Sides included colorful carrots and mashed garlic potatoes. Dinner was really good and portions could have fed four people. Checked out the desert menu but too full to get any of those goodies. Will definitely go back.More

Over a two-week trip traveling through Arizona, our dinners were overall a disappointment. King’s Fish House was a welcome bright spot for dinner. The atmosphere inside and out was welcoming, the restaurant was clean, and the staff were friendly. More importantly than all of this,...our meals were wonderful. The drinks we had, our entrees, and dessert were all very good. I would recommend King’s Fish House to anyone in the Tempe area.More

The fish is fresh and wonderfully prepared. I love their salads. The butter cake is the best. Most of the servers are good polite and helpful. There have been a few duds. Which is why the four stars. This is over a period of 8...years or so. It’s our go to special restaurantMore

The outdoor patio is a delightful place for a meal. The service was excellent with each item brought to the table at exactly tge right time- which is very rare. The food was absolutely delicious from appetizer to entre and tge drinks perfect, as well....I don’t live in Arizona but will definitely seek Kings out next trip.More

Several of my girlfriends met at King’s for a reunion luncheon. There were only a few diners during lunch so we were seated quickly. Our server was great and attentive. We had 2 orders of fish tacos, shrimp and scallop salad, sand dabs, and sword...fish. Some of the gals got a small green salad as well. Service was quick with a nice presentation. The fish tacos were hefty and delicious. The dish also came with chips and guacamole. I could only eat one taco. The server even offered drinks to go. King’s is located in the Tempe Marketplace near Barnes and Noble bookstore.More

My wife chose Kings Fish House for her birthday dinner...a great choice. Tyler, our waiter was excellent as was the hostess. Evidently the Chef and kitchen staff were great too...our Scallop and Shrimp and Parmesan Encrusted Sanddabs were excellent. The ambiance is befitting a very...fine meal too and the free parking and multiple options of things to do in the Tempe Marketplace are added benefits of dinner at Kings Fish House. Recommended.More

Laine was our waiter; terrific! My wife had the hazelnut crusted salmon: the best she’s ever had! I had swordfish tacos: excellent!

While my seafood Cobb salad with blue cheese dressing was not only OK and large, my wife’s fish lunch entree was swimming in grease! This was lunch. Wouldn’t dare try it for dinner.

Nearly every time we visit Tempe, we enjoy a meal at Kings Fish House. The seafood preparations are always superior and the service professional. This past visit I tried a Pacific Sand Dabs fish that I had not previously tasted, and it was excellent. We...particularly like the bar atmosphere and decor. This restaurant is consistent and reliable. You cannot go wrong when dining at Kings Fish House.More
