This place is excellent for the fish! Great portion sizes and the service is great. The restaurant is perfect for a date night or a family night. They have big and small tables. The decoration puts you in the mood for fish. The servers are well knowledgeable about the food. The taste of the fish is well done as well!... More

We ordered from the grilled fish menu. We were five people ordering from the Grilled Fish Menu. Our dishes included Rock fish, King salmon, yellow fin tuna, Wahoo and scallop with a cold dish Poke. The King salmon was not as tasty as the rest. It taste like normal farm raised Atlantic salmon. The rest were very good. I just... More

It wasn't ok, it was terrible food! I ordered the Salmon Cakes with Jasmine rice and corn for a lack of better options. The Salmon tasted fishy, the... More

The service was fast, the atmosphere was delightful, and the optional outside seating made for a very enjoyable lunch. The food was excellent as usual. A very wide selection of fish, shellfish, steak, and chicken. I take my out of town guests here on a regular basis and when they come back they always want to return to Kings Fish... More

We always enjoy Kings and have eaten there many times. This time we had halibut, which was very good, but pricey. Outdoor seating is pleasant and there are outdoor heaters if the evening is cool.

Decided to go out after a busy day at LEGOLAND. The grandkids were up for it but I wasn't really excited (was thinking chug some beers with the son-in-law and munch chips). Well, the old man doesn't get a vote so off we went. It's a short drive, practically around the corner. The place is very impressive with a nice... More

We sat outside and had great service from Nils. The food was fresh and they had a great New England clam bake on special. My only negative is that the food was a bit pricy.

We've eaten here several times before as well. Great menu, fresh seafood and excellent beverage selections. I really love the fresh fish and oysters! The ambience is great for meeting friends or just people watching while you eat. We'll eat here again before we leave, it's that good, Cheers!
