The $25 fish and chips was the tiniest portion ever. Each piece of fish about as big as a Snickers candy bar. I am not joking about that. If anything I’ve given it more credit to its size than deserves. 2 pieces for $25. It wasn’t any type of specialty fish, it was cod.

Unsure if we would go back for food but the drinks and patio atmosphere was fun.

Food on patio lunch on Wednesday July 14 was not very good and over priced.
We ordered the Chicken Cranberry Quesadialla and Rice Noodle Bowl.

The Quesadialla was edible but not tasty. The Rice Noodle Bowl was drenched
in sauce and not edible.

The waiter asked several times if finished while still eating which was annoying.
Although, not charged for the Rice Noodle Bowl feel not up to usual standards
for food or service and will not be returning anytime soon.

Made a reservation for a patio table and was informed they didn’t have any, one table was free when we were waiting for our food and we asked to move to which they said we can’t aloud to get people moving to outside tables, food was ok but lots of noise inside the restaurant making conversation hard, overall I was expecting more, restaurant inside looked tired and servers were interested in having conversations with each other rather than with patrons

The hostess was miserable and first impressions are everything. The food was mediocre and very overpriced (ie. Seafood linguini had tiny scallops and shrimp obviously frozen and poor quality, Rice Noodle bowl had 2 pieces of broccoli and added shrimp which were really small and obviously frozen). The music was unbelievably loud making it impossible to have a conversation. Sad because it's such a great location BUT the food is not great.

Our original server was not very personable & she got one of our orders wrong. Also after I paid the bill I realized they overcharged us. Also when we left the restaurant, the hostess didn’t even acknowledge us even though she was standing right at the front desk.
They need to work on their customer service!!

Reserved table only to arrive and find restaurant closed. Tried to book again on open table and when we phoned restaurant to ask question hostess didn't answer question and just said they wouldn't accept booking. 2nd time we have had miserable service. Not worth the overpriced drinks average food and poor staff. Really wanted to support local as opposed to a big chain post pandemic but it appears this establishment doesn't care. We will go elsewhere.

Unfortunately, we waited 45mins from time seated to food arriving and we ordered as soon as our server first approached us, as that also took about 10 minutes from the time we were seated. Our first time there and we aren't sure we want to return as the quality and taste of the food didn't make up fir the poor service.

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🍻😉
