The best part of this King Fish is the location. It's situated right on the Ohio River overlooking the beautiful Louisville, KY skyline. There's an outside deck and you can also see the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows inside the dining area. It's easily accessible from I-65 or the Second Street Bridge. This location is HUGE and can accommodate large... More

First time in the area and stopped in on a whim. I was promptly seated and waiter arrived instantly. Food came out st perfect intervals, server also followed up regularly and was quick for refills etc. Portions were great and prices reasonable. Very good experience and would recommend.

We have eaten at Kingfish many times. Usually pretty good, but not so much this time. The fried cod was not very tasty, my son's catfish was good and my daughters class were a little chewy. But, the river view is always worthwhile.

A co-worker and I will order fish platters when we work the same shift during lunch. We haven't had a bad meal yet. I trust we will continue ordering lunch to go as long as the quality continues to stay high. Good job, Kingfish.

I'll have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the food is not as good as it used to be.....and for me, it's overpriced. With that being said, it's still a nice place to eat and the view of downtown Louisville if fabulous.

Visited on a Sunday for lunch. Was not crowded at all, was seated promptly, and had a table with a view of the river and Louisville. Our waitress was prompt and friendly. This was my first visit back in over 2 years when I had a disappointing meal. I decided to give it another try. Unfortunately, I was still let... More

I was born and raised in Louisville, and spent many enjoyable times at Kingfish restaurants. After moving away 15 years ago, I missed the fish sandwiches on rye and rolled oysters, so I made sure I stopped there each time I came back to Louisville. So, I did the same last week and it might be my last. I ordered... More

King Fish is not like I remember. I grew up on King Fish. This location and I have tried it multiple times, does not have it together. The service was so slow, bordering on rude and the food, when it finally arrived, was lukewarm. I want fried fish and fries to be hot! By the time our waiter came back... More

This is a quintessential fish restaurant....for fried fish and hushpuppies! Yes, you get a basket of hushpuppies when you sit down at the table! What is not to love. The view is great! Looking over the river to Louisville. Nice place for lunch or dinner.

Hushpuppies were good food was ok. Don't expect good service here. I've never had it, prolly never will. It's a fried fish factory. It is what you think it is
