Never had a bad meal here always delightful. It's a bit crowded so we go over to the bar side and eat on the patio. When it's cool they put down the clear shades and turn on the heaters - so we're always comfortable. The fish is always great, as is their soup, and I always get their artichokes. Highly... More

King's is always a choice to go for my birthday! The atmosphere is very nice and service is professional. The lobster is the best but be sure you eat every bit. Fresh fish daily is there claim to fame. Bring your wallet!

King's Fish House never disappoints. The fish is fresh and wonderfully prepared. The oysters were sweet and juicy and very tasty

Nice, relaxing atmosphere. I'm originally from New England so my Fish tastes are very picky. The Texas Shrimp didn't have that shrimp flavor I'm used to but no fault of the restaurant.

I invited a couple of clients to dinner and was very impressed with the food- not so much with the service. Drinks took a while to get and our waiter didn't seem very eager to take our orders. Then when drinks were reordered no one cleared the old ones off the table. Three of us had the sea bass, each... More

The menu for a seafood lover is a dream and when the food is served you will not be disappointed. The staff were very friendly and we had a great day out. This is my second visit to this restaurant and it was as good as the first. Thank you very much for a very memorable experience.

Just stopped in for some oysters and beer mid-pm. Service a bit slow given how little traffic there was. Oysters excellent. And enjoyed the bread.

An associate of mine took me to lunch and I has an excellent experience. I ordered the mussels for an appetizer and White sea Bass for the main course. Both were excellent. Cooked properly and tasty. The mussels were a larger portion that I anticipated so I only ate about helf but there were great. The White Sea Bass was... More

The dishes were bland assembly line creations, overly salty and not very good. Service was average and they were able to accomodate a large family. It is expensive for the quality of food but there are not many options for seafood in this area.

When in California, we always try to find a King's Fish House nearby. This location did not disappoint. Clams on the half shell as an appetizer was delicious. All 3 fish entrees were cooked to perfection, portion plus sides are more then enough. The decor of the restaurant keeps the eyes busy, including the crab and lobster tanks by kitchen.... More
