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!

Waited for 30 minutes to receive our drinks, waitress was obviously frustrated with lack of staffing. The food was good, not great and WAY over priced! Will not be back.

The food was super fresh and delicious and service very friendly and accommodating, if a little slow. The restaurant was quite busy and they may not have had enough servers but even with the lag, our server was very sweet and lovely.

Service was poor. Took a long time to seat us despite a reservation. Server was often gone for long periods of time. One person did not receive their entree for a long time, while everyone else did. The others in the group were almost done with their meals by the time that person received their food. Food was fine. Would likely not return due to poor service.

Pleasing interior and not too much noise for conversation. Lots of seafood options. Food well prepared and served in generous portions. Fresh halibut was outstanding, linguine with clams also outstanding. Service was timely and professional. Half bottle of house wine was pleasant and affordable. Chocolate cake dessert was wonderful end to dinner. Good choice for a casual evening celebration.

The food was excellent as we have come to expect! We'll be back soon.

By the way, please accept my apology for not showing up for a scheduled reservation a week ago. I strive to be very conscientious about that and that's the first time I've ever made that mistake with OpenTable (you can ask them). Please let Krystal know. Thanks!

The spicy tuna with crunchy rice is a fav and it was super yummy as always! One of our friends enjoyed the miso yaki sea bass how can u not enjoy it ☺️ my only suggestion is when customers arrive before their reservation time I think it best to seat them rather than make them wait until their reservation time. Our food server was very attentive. I’m sorry I didn’t get his name. Other than the wait to be seated it was near perfect. Can’t wait until next time 🙌🏼

We got the oysters (one of each, for each of us), as is our usual. And followed up with Key Lime Pie for dessert. It was all excellent.
This was our first time out since COVID started, and it was a pretty good experience. We can't wait to go back.

Restaurant was busy but had no wait on Tuesday night; we were offered indoor or outdoor seating and chose a window. Even the host was great! We were greeted promptly by our server who made some great drink recommendations and spoke about the seasonal items.

Dinner and drinks were fresh, fast, and delicious! We split the BBQ Shrimp, Crab Cakes, and also tried the Macadamia Halibut. We cannot wait to go back.
