“great place for lunch”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

good fresh seafood, my wife said she loved the salad(fresh and cold) and gumbo. Very helpful and friendly staff. I had the shrimp and sausage creole that was very tasty. A big portion that you could really share. You should try this place out

“Come for the food, not the atmosphere.”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The restaurant has the appearance of an old, hastily remodeled Dairy Queen. So, if you are looking for an upscale or romantic atmosphere...look elsewhere.

However, if you are looking for good fish and seafood, you've come to the right place. The fried crab claws are a great starter (even my picky teenagers enjoyed them). The gumbo and bisque were also big hits.

The most popular entree was the catfish and shrimp combo. Both were delicious, but the catfish was the overwhelming favorite of our table.

For dessert we shared a fried cheesecake, which everyone enjoyed.

Service was very good. An error in the order was quickly addressed. All in all, the server was very attentive and friendly.

“Great Lunch Spot!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We ate here one day for lunch after we saw all of the cars packed in the parking lot during this off season month. They have tons of lunch specials that are all 8.99 or less and include your drink as well. When we got the bill we mentioned the drinks were not listed and found out there were included.
I had the turkey and dressing with cranberry topping and a side vegetable. My spouse had the greek tilapia and a vegetable. Everything was good, incuding the service. The food took a little because the place was full and we had to wait on a table at 1:00 pm. It appears to have a large local following and the owner is out talking to all of the customers (most of whom she seemed to already know).

“Best in the Area”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

If it is seafood you want come to King Neptunes. They have a large variety and can boil of bake your dinner not all fried. Not much in atmosphere. But friendly and very attentive staff always checking if your food is right but not interfering in your time of enjoyment. check for store hours and enjoy trust me it is wonderful.
