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!

    Almost didn’t try Kings Fish House based on some of the reviews. Not sure what changed but our experience was very positive. Server was prompt, entertaining, and informative. Food was very tasty. Only oddity was parking in relation to the front door, but we figured it out. We will definitely be back.

    I want to love this place but unfortunately, every time I go I find myself leaving disappointed. Food is average and with so many options in the area they have to do better pr they will not last.

    this used to be our favorite fish restaurant but last night's experience was less than stellar. clam chowder good but not great - had to use a magnifying glass to find the clams but the broth was flavorful. ordered a shrimp louis salad and hubby had a fried platter. Hugh salad but it was missing 2 ingredients, the red onions were cut very thick and the shrimp was there somewhere? the fried platter was alright - great shrimp, but the batter on the fish was soggy and some of the scallops were not cooked. manager did replace missing ingredients and take the salad off the bill. did the same thing a couple months back when the soggy fish problem was even worse. waiter was pleasant and they make great iced tea.

    This is one of the worst seafood restaurants I have visited. The food was just short of inedible and definitely not worth what is being charged. Desert and cocktails were the only highlights of the meal which included group and individual appetizers. Overall, although the servers were attentive, it was a complete disappointment.

    Made a reservation for outside seating. Waited 35 minutes + after promised time and had to choose an indoor seat as this was all that was available. Food reviews varied from good to bland to dried out. Bartender ended up as our server. He was great! Wouldn’t recommend. The people and the place seemed tired. Really disappointed with our experience when compared to the great ratings and our expectations

    What an amazing restaurant. I went with low expectations due to the location being a college town and a mall but I am pleased to say I was so wrong. We sat by the bar area which was pleasant. Much to our surprise the bartender, Tyler, was also our server and wow he was amazing. We were a party of three one of our party members was delayed and Tyler was so patient. We can’t thank him enough. The menus is big with so many options and choices. All types of fish and choices of how you want it prepared. The oysters were amazing and our friend had the grilled octopus and it also was amazing. Thank you for not rushing us out even though the restaurant was closing. What an awesome time and we will be back.

    The mahi- mahi was raw. The coleslaw tasted like fish and smelled like fish, the french fries were cold, batter on the fish was not cooked all the way through crispy outside, raw runny batter on the inside. This is our 2nd and last time going here for date night.

    This is a drive for us, so we don't go very often, but when we do we walk out saying 'we need to come here more'. Just going for the bread alone would be worth it, but the seafood is always great. I had the lemon nut crusted sea bass which was excellent, my husband had the swordfish which was a nice thick cut and moist all the way thru, not dry like it can be at some places. Enjoy all the sides too, although you better like garlic if you get the spinach. We do.

    Fanny Bay Oysters were delicious. Grilled Artichokes not as tasty as they used to be in past years. Over cooked to point of being burned. Macadamia Nut Encrusted Halibut was delicious. Trout Almandine was delicious. Grilled Tuna was good. Spinach was fantastic. Bright green and prepared perfectly. Carrots were very hard. Took them home and cooked them longer. Dark and Stormy was not drinkable. Unrecognizable.

    My girlfriend and I chose this location because of the reviews I read online and we are sea food lovers. Upon our arrival we we were met with great smiles and customer service. When our dinner arrived, we looked at each other and thought “ wow, this was presented poorly.” We were so excited for our Mahi Mahi and sword fish until it was on our plates and in front of us. The food was bland and when I told the waitress my girlfriend was not a fan, she immediately stated “ why, because it isn’t seasoned?” We responded to her comment and said exactly. We won’t get into any racial biases with comment made BUT she was right. They were understanding of our thoughts and immediately allowed us to re order. The Swordfish came out again and my girlfriend was still very disappointed. The fish lacked seasoning and seeing how she ordered “ blackened “ Swordfish it made it even more disappointing.

    It was a last-minute decision to eat here because we couldn't get a party of 6 in at our desired restaurant. We did not have to wait long. We sat on the patio which was extremely loud due to the patio being next to parking lot traffic. I know they can't help that. The waiter was nice but a little awkward and took way too long to bring everything. The food was average and overpriced. I probably would not go back again.

    We had reservations and were seated right away. The menu is extensive so there is something for everyone. Appetizers included calamari and fish cakes and both were delicious. I myself had the Chilean Sea Bass and although everyone loved their individual dish, once they tasted mine they knew what they would order next time. Disappointed with the spinach and garlic side dish, though. I will order something else next time. Garlic mashed delicious. I do think maybe extra staff or two would have helped as my server seemed a bit harried, although pleasant as could be and for the price paid we shouldn’t have to have needed to stop them in lieu of coming over when we needed things.
