Last night we chose to come here for date night, because we had always wanted to try it. With high expectations due to the crowd waiting to be seated, we gave our name and took our buzzer to wait on a bench outside. I noticed the beautiful wood walls, and self bragging quotes painted on them, and was ready to be amazed. Our wait wasn't too bad, and we were seated within 15 minutes.
Our waitress was friendly enough, and we looked over the menu. I was seeking a healthy dish, and thankfully there are a few grilled items. I was surprised that most dishes are prepared in a southern comfort manner - even the sides- very buttery, saucey, or greasy. There is a sushi option, which is a good fall back, but I didn't try it.
The problem with King's, which will prevent our return, is how loud the place is. It became the topic of our date night....not romantic. Clanking from the kitchen, some kid across the room making a straw into a whistle, clankingdiners dishes, bar noise, and loud conversation made me feel like I was dining in my old high school cafeteria 30 years ago. My spouse thought maybe the linoleum tiles had something to do with it. Whatever it was, I can say with confidence that there are tons of sea food spots in our area, so avoid this one for a date. Large groups would do well, and families.
But I am commenting on my personal experience, and rating it only. I tried the white bean and salmon soup and have one word to sum it up: GROSS. The rainbow trout was flavorful, thanks to being completely drenched in a lemon butter sauce. Taking the healthy out of fish. If you read my other reviews, you will see that I am not hard to please, generally. Our friendly waitress never refilled our drinks. Not once. That makes a 3 dollar tea seem even more expensive! That is quite a tea bag they are charging for. Speaking of prices - they are definately on the high side.
Our experience will definately result in a one time only visit.
