Kings in Carlsbad is very good but not great. Three of us went. My Lobster roll was expensive and could have been more generous on lobster meat. The fries were hot and the coleslaw was good. It’s just price vs quantity. The quality is there....More

Found on tripadvisor. We sat at the bar as we always do when only the two of us. Service was friendly and good. Food was really good. I saw some negative reviews, cant imagine why?

Solid family friendly restaurant with some amazing menu options. Fish, which they obviously specialize in, was perfectly cooked. Highly recommended!

First time in the area, and we tried it just by change. The seafood cocktail was superb. The macadamia nut halibut was superbly cooked. The hot bread was awesome. We were both thrilled we went. Try it!

Stopped here for dinner the other night and although busy, we got seated right away. Wine came quickly and our order of the artichoke appetizer also arrived fast. Excellent grilled artichoke! We both ordered Sand Dabs which came out rapidly and were consumed the same...More

Awful service! :( Our server, Michael, never came back to check on us to see how we were doing and if we needed anything (which we did! Drinks were empty for a while!). The place was 1/2 empty since it was 9pm but plenty of...More
