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!

Our server was amazing, but the lobster was foul tasting. Perhaps just a bad day for them.

We were given a booth for 6 in the bar area which was packed with people. The table was sticky. I wish we could have had a table in the main dining area as our experience wasn't the best. The service was excellent and the food good if overpriced. The sushi was not particularly fresh. Not as good an experience as our past visits to King's Fish House.

Great fish as usual, and great service. We were able to bring out dog along because of the layout and gracious management.

Nice selection of oysters and good beers on tap! Grilled octopus is awesome. Crab cakes were not impressive, I think they forgot the crab and the breading over seasoned. Overall a great place for some fresh seafood and drinks, just stay away from the crab cakes.

I was tasked with finding a restaurant with good seafood and I'm usually not good at picking restaurants. I narrowed it down to 5 choices and chose King's Fish House because of the menu, reviews and yelp pics. My date and I enjoyed the food and the ambience and have already discussed returning soon!

First timer here and I loved it. Would definitely return! Service was great and our waitress was the best! Frequently checked on us but without that awkward “food in my mouth” moment where they catch you mid bite haha! It’s like she was paying attention to when it was safe to approach our table. The food was great and and the drinks? Even better!

First time eating at Kings Fish House. My grandparents used to own a Mexican Restaurant next door some time ago and I used to always walk by when I would stay with them but I never ate there. My husband and I went to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary and Kings Fish House did not disappoint. Our table was nice and private near the kitchen and the food was great! We started with the Oyster Sampler. I had the Lobster Tail. It was delicious! Husband had the Halibut catch of the day and he was happy with his choice. The Butter Cake dessert was soooo good! I’m not from the area but I’ll make the one hour drive to come back in the future.

Early Friday evening dinner. Service was friendly and professional. Cold bar (oysters and sushi) was excellent, while grilled octopus and surf&turf were good. Prices were fair. Restaurant is clean and cool, located on a hip street in downtown Long Beach. Music was a bit louder than necessary and more contemporary than appropriate for the venue, throwing off the overall ambience a little. Overall a nice dining experience.

45 minutes to get drinks (a beer and two simple cocktails).

Our calamari came out cold and greasy.

Two entrees were good, one had cold sides, and the third was raw on the inside and served with cold sides.

Waitress kept disappearing, so we had to get assistance from the hostess stand.

Didn’t receive credit for my reservation. I received a no show email. My water glass was dirty. There was lipstick on it. The table was sticky. The sushi tasted too fishy, as if not fresh.

Mac and cheese needs some work with seasoning, otherwise everything was good and tasty. Will definitely come back.

Most of the food was excellent, but the yellowtail was not great — lots of “dark brown” parts. Service was very friendly but slow. Noise level was moderate. Lots of readily available parking nearby.

We were on time and they sat us right away. While they brought water to the table quickly, I think they forgot our cocktail order. I reminded them as our entrees arrived and they apologized and gave the cocktails for free.

The service was a little wonky but I give them a pass due to hiring new servers and being shorthanded due to the pandemic. I ordered the simple Linguine & Clams....the place setting did not include a spoon and it took forever to get one. I like to use a spoon with my pasta to help get it on the fork...you know like normal Italian fare. Also, they did not provide a bowl or anything to put the empty shells in so they're swimming around the edges of my pasta bowl. Just little things but overall...good!

It had been years since I had been here. I didn't know that it's not that dark lit, old place it was years ago...it's open, bright. Much better. I would recommend King's.

Starting w apps - mussels and chowder - both were reported to be good, I sampled one mussel and it still had the beard on it, so that was kind of yuck, but mostly the mussels were very meaty.
Entrees- 1 steak - it was unevenly cooked, and not anything to come back to.
Salmon - with Brussel Sprouts and spinach as my sides - presentation wasn’t anything special, I should have asked for my salmon to be med rare- my fault for not doing that. The brussel sprouts were tremendously overcooked and the spinach tasted like it’s made well in advance and not made to order. Paid $2.5 extra for the brussel sprouts.
Linguine w clams - lots of clams! But they were all in the shell, so it was a lot of work to eat. But if you love linguine w clams, they serve a very generous portion.
Hamburger- I’m told it was very good - the French fries were reviewed by two people to be just ok.
Sushi platter - the portion size of each piece was simply too large for someone to put into their mouth. So to eat it they had to kind of demolish the bite. It was ok, not great.
The crab cakes were reviewed to be the worst thing he ever ate.
The restaurant took the crab cakes and the sushi off the order. That was above any expectation, but taking the crab cakes off was absolutely the right thing to do. It was way generous of the restaurant either way.
Dessert- key lime pie was good - not wow, but good. Choc cake was very good - and very rich! Butter cake was also good as was the cheesecake. Cheesecake was good, not great.
Cocktails were very good.

Our waiter/waitress was great and from the moment we stepped inside, the service and attention was great!

I also really appreciated that you have a gluten-free and seafood-free menu.

It was a wonderful experience especially with the windows open so we could feel more covid-free and safe~

All best and with gratitude for your care of your customers!

Food was very good and the seafood was very fresh. The cold seafood was delicious and presented nicely. Only, nick pit was that the entrees need little work with presentation and plating. The service was exceptional and our server was friendly and knowledgeable.

I appreciate the help with the menu as it is extensive.

Oysters and service was great. We tend to get the same thing everytime we go since it's usually amazing but this time was a bit disappointing. Sand dabs, spinach and lobster were not what we expected. Lobster tasted dirty and too tough to even cut with a knife. The sand dabs and spinach had very little flavor and too much breading.
