It would be better when you open at 12 to let people in to ask if anyone has reservations. Instead the 1st group standing in line was let in 1st

The food is delicious. We have tried most items on the menu, and the high quality of food and preparation is consistent. We have not had a dish we didn’t enjoy. It is a bit on the pricey side, but to know that you are going to be absolutely pleased with your meal and service makes it worth it. One of the stand out meals is the beef short rib. Absolutely AMAZING!!! Comes with all the fixings including Yorkshire. No need for a knife, it is that tender. Of course we need to mention the fish and chips with coleslaw and homemade tartar sauce that is second to none. We literally come to King Fishers because we can’t find this tartar sauce anywhere else. Nice size pieces of fish cooked to golden perfection.
The staff are always helpful, efficient and welcoming.
Definitely a must try if you have not been here. If you have been here, you already know that you will be back. Cheers🍻😉

Staff went above & beyond to address issue with booking online & lack of information regarding bar side/patio - bravo. Food was over-priced, bland & underwhelming except for the dessert - the brownie was amazing & having chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla (b/c they ran out) was pure serendipity. Loved the live music but will not go back to eat.

Everything was great, got a nice table on the covered patio, Olivia our wonderful server was attentive with out being around too much. Food was good as my husband had the steak frites , his favourite. Had a complimentary brownie for dessert as we were out for a birthday dinner.

I must say that I always loved going to the KingFisher because you endorse live music but the Salmon Burber meal was very disappointing. It was a ground salmon pattie.....which didn't taste like salmon at all. I thought your salmon burger would be a salmon fillet.

We ordered the special of the evening which was a beef short ribs slow braised and you weren’t sure pudding… Yorkshire pudding was over cooked and actually burnt so my friend sent hers back and the replacement one that arrived was a third of the size… Food prices are very expensive for a bar and grill… The patio is the only thing that makes this place worth going to in my opinion as everything else is overrated

We went to hear the guitarist. We were sat on the other side of the bar at a booth and couldn't hear him very well. It was disappointing especially since we paid the $5 fee.
Other than that it was a good night.

I got to Kingfishers for the convenience as it is really close to my house, the place is nice and usually service is ok however their food has gone from bad to worst in the past year. I have not have anything in there that is not overcooked or extremely bland. Recently I had the salmon dinner and my salmon was terribly overcooked, broccoli was quite unappealing (it says bokchoy on the menu but I guess they were out) and the rice was just as bland as it could be. Before that I ordered the chicken burger sandwich. That one was inedible and I left half of the burger on my plate. Their fries are always amazing so my recommendation would be to order anything that is deep fried as maybe that would help with the dry piece of protein you will get. Sorry Kingfishers I really want to support small local businesses but I am losing faith in your so called "locally sourced menu".

Honestly, the best restaurant/bar in Maple Ridge. Service is always above and beyond, food is always delicious and always friendly staff. My wife and I went for a date night and it was absolutely amazing. We have decided that it will be our ONLY date night spot for any time we want to go and eat without the kids.

I have never eaten at Kingfishers before and I thought what would be a more perfect day to come try it out, and that was Valentine's Day :)

Service was really good. I even made a request at the time of booking(which was accommodated) to have a table, so we could look out at he river.
Had a great time. Look forward to coming back.

I would love it if there was a halibut dish :D
