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!

I've been going to King Fish House in Orange for a very long time. They were all booked for Saturday so we decided to go to the one in Huntington Beach. Upon arrival we got seated since we made reservations thru Open Table. Service was Horrible we had to remind our server multiple time about our drinks and when food came to the table we had no silverware to eat. We had to wait another 20 min for us to get that. Our server never checked on us if we wanted any refills on water or any drinks. I ordered the fillet with backed potatoes and zucchini. My fillet looked like it was off of a kids menu. I have ordered the same thing at the one in orange and never had any issues. The only thing that came fast at our table was when we asked for the check. We were there to celebrate but didn't feel like that. My suggestion if you want good service go to the one in Orange you will not be disappointed.

A manager helped here and there making the service streamlined and timely. It was great not having to wait. One area Kings could work on is getting drinks out quicker. Whether it’s water, coffee or a glass of wine, the sooner the better.

The food was excellent as always. Crab legs were hot and meaty! I do not love brussels sprouts, but they’re roasted brussels sprouts were out of this world! Service was great and all staff were wearing masks. I felt safe and everything appeared to be very sanitary.

If you want a good selection of oysters this is the place!!!!!! Great appetizers and cocktails as well. Ordered the BBQ shrimp. It was really bbq but it was a tasty sauce. Will definitely be coming back again. The Trinidad Swizzle was a great cocktail. The cream brûlée was off as it was more like soup and wasn’t set right but the top was nice and crusted.

Food was terrific but the server we had was not good at all. It was even a difficult decision to leave a 10% tip because he deserved less than that. Once he took our order, we only saw him to give us the food. No checks up on us or to refill our water or offer a desert. We even had to flag down another waiter just to get our check. Great place, bad service.

The food was very good. The servers were very accommodating, but slow. They have done a nice job of adapting their outdoor area for dining. The one drawback for us was the adjacent table with very noisy, whiny kids. Although this was not the fault of the restaurant it did distract from our dining experience.

Everything was perfect. Just waitress was a little slow on delivering drinks. Also would be nice to be offered a glass of ice to accompany my Sannpelligino. Asked for extra limes and only got one slice. She was a good waitress just a little too busy to really help us at first.

Birthday dinner for four on the patio due to Covid restrictions. It was very comfortable warm and the ambience was great. No corkage fee for the wine so that was a nice perk. Our waitress was very attentive, pleasant and did a great job. We Had a reservation and did not have to wait to be seated. Would recommend for a nice evening out.

Everything was perfection for our lunch. The oysters were cold and tasty. The fish was tender. The sides were not an after-thought but were well seasoned and complemented the fish. The service was efficient and not intrusive. Our drinks were refilled before they needed to be. Our server was attentive. We sat under a heater and were comfortable on the patio. We enjoyed every minute and we will be back!
