Seafood
We’ve been in restaurants a long time – three generations, to be precise – and we love seafood. With seafood there’s so much to be passionate about – the freshness, the flavor, the variety, and the surprise.

To create the ultimate seafood experience, we traveled down the highways and byways. We pulled up a seat, put on bibs, and soaked up the seafood experience: The no-name dishes with unforgettable flavor, the fresh-caught oysters and clams piled high, the hand-lettered specials on ancient chalkboards, and the savory simmer of every combination of spices imaginable.

The pleasure of preparing and sharing seafood was simple and genuine, and it brought out the best in everyone. Often, we felt as if we’d been welcomed into somebody’s home.

That’s what King’s Fish House is all about — and we’ve tried to bring all of these ideas together into one single, spectacular place, filled with camaraderie and celebration, and the things we love best. Welcome to the House that Seafood Built!

We love going to King's Fish House in Huntington Beach. Service is good, food is good and the place is overall great quality. It is usually easy to walk in and get a table but with open table reservations- they were ready and prepared to seat us. Drinks are excellent and they will uncork any wine you bring.

We arrived early and we were seated immediately. I had reserved outside seating but requested inside seats when we arrived, and they graciously accommodated us. This was our first visit to this location and I really enjoy the meal. It was expensive for lunch.

My date and I ordered the same entree, the macadamia halibut that included two sides, my date selected the carrots and baked potato. I selected the baked potato and the asparagus. I did not realize I had been charged extra for the asparagus until I arrived home. I am very disappointed that I was charged extra for a side of asparagus that was listed as a choice. This will be my last experience with Kings as I feel there was no reason for this additional charge.

First time at King’s Fish house. Brought my son & he loved it. It’s definitely kid friendly. They have a kids menu with a lot of activities for kids. My son absolutely love the restaurant. The food was great. We had oysters and lobster- the drinks were also up to par. Definitely a place I’d recommend to my friends.

From our greeter Bailey, to our serve Garrett and the owner Peter, we were constantly met with superior service. Everyone was so friendly, professional and made my birthday celebration memorable. The food was top notch, so I came back the next day for take-out. I highly recommend this location.

Way too manny crew members to give the poor guest experience , server didn't really take care of tables dirty tables after a crew member “ clean it “ floors same way dirty . Manager pass by whit out checking on guess or noticing those important small details on this kind of restaurant not the kings fish house it use to be . Sad to see after 20 years plus that kings fish house is not what it use to bee .

Everything was very good from the server, Amanda, to the drinks and the food. Service was just right. Mussels were the best thing we had but both our dinners were excellent. Really good cocktails as well. We will be back again and again.

Second time visiting this place. I guess since the lockdown is slowly ending it was more crowded than usual for a Saturday evening. Very busy and loud. I could tell by the way the waiter greeted us that were going to receive very poor service. The waiter seemed very rushed and inattentive, and it seemed like he didn’t have a choice but to be this way. The packed house could be the very reason for this as my initial visit was much better. Sitting there I saw customers waiting for almost 40 minutes for main course, we put in our order right away and was luck to hit the hour mark before we were served the main course. We saw a few tables that had partial service were a group was only served a part of the order so by the time the second part came back half of the table had completely eating their food leaving 1 or 2 people to just watch them eat. I am a seafood lover and this place popped up as a place in my area that had good seafood. To be honest, I have had 2 different appetizer and main courses, and I can honestly say their seafood is a WOW for me. The food taste good but so far the dishes we have had doesn’t spark joy or even the idea of going back for a third try. So, I guess I saw search for a really good seafood restaurant is still on.

Everyone was friendly. Food was yummy. My only complaint is that waiter didn’t come check on us enough. He was very nice though. Maybe new or just busy. We weren’t upset. Just something we noticed

Ate and drank in the bar area with bartender Lacy. We had a group of 6 and Lacy provided excellent service and was friendly as well.. Food was good, but we will be back again to see Lacy.

The wait time at front desk could be improved. Prices are moderately high; service my serving staff usually very good; wedge salad is bountiful. Usually the food is good; though my swordfish had a funny flavor and was tough. We go here often but since COVID not for over a year. We go here also because it is convenient and we like seafood.

Hostess terrible with attitude. We had a reservation and straight up told us to wait for another 15 mins after our reservation time. We can 10 mins early as well. She didn’t explain why we had to wait longer and since we were sitting outside she ended up putting us at a table that has been open since the time we go there. Right where everyone was waiting in line. Service was good minus the hostess. They need more training and empathy.

For what it is, and the food quality, its pretty overpriced. The food prices imply a higher quality establishment. The quality of the food itself does not meet that bar.
