If you want a light diner I suggest their Claim Chowder and first their Oysters, they have a very good selection, after the Oysters try the Claim chowder very very good.

We met another couple or dinner at the Fish House. It was our first visit there but a favorite of their's. We arrived first and ordered drinks and appetizers. Sat in the par as it is quieter than the restaurant. Crab Cakes and Sea Bass were our favorites while our friends scarfed down oysters. Service was good and food was... More

My wife and I often got to a restaurant for shellfish and we were not disappointed. She had lobster (a little pricey but what you expect for lobster) and I had shrimp and scallops. We were both pleased. For desert go for the bread pudding. Her's was complimentary for her birthday. We walked back to the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort.... More

We went for lunch on Friday. It wasn't very busy. Ordered the tilapia and it was just ok. Not much flavor to it. The service was great, though. Our server was on it and kept us filled with drinks, and took time to explain different dishes.

My Wife and I had dinner at King's Fish House, while on vacation in Carlsbad. We checked out the Menu on-line first and decided to try it. We were seated right away, even without reservations. I will say the menu is extensive and includes Sushi that, even though I didn't order it (I make it a policy NOT to order... More

I wasn't anticipating a great meal as on our last visit the meal was very average. We were very pleasantly surprised with the great quality of our meal. I had the macadamia nut encrusted halibut and my wife had the wild salmon. Both were great. My wife has been looking for a fish restaurant with wild salmon. This the only... More

This is very close proximity to our hotel. I'm trying to eat more fish, so I thought we'd give it a try. There was a bit of sticker shock. This place can't seem to decide if it is a sushi place or a fish house. The prices were very high, in my opinion. My husband had tuna tataki, salmon rolls... More
