Great service and the food was amazing. Only good part of my hotel stay is that this was next door. The server looked just like Amada Portman. She was a great waitress. I would definitely go there again and bring all my friends.

Generously giving this rating. Service was slow even though place wasn't busy. I ordered sea bass but got mahi. Knew better than to tell the waiter for fear... 'Northwest' veggies turned out to be undercooked carrots, in abundance.

Food was only OK. Fish and chips were greasy. Tried to order a strawberry daiquiri but was told they don't have them.

Great lunch or dinner at this restaurant. The clam chowders keep me coming back for more. They serve either white or red or you can a bowl of half and half. Salads are also not to be missed.

We quickly figured out that dinner is a better experience once you leave LEGOLAND. There are several options nearby. King's is located in a strip mall area as you leave the park and head back to the freeway. This one is my favorite. It's a...More

When I crave a fine seafood dining experience, my husband and I visit Kings. I love the scallops and my husband favors the salmon. Always good service and fresh fish.

Love this place, especially in June, when there are whole lobster specials. Food is always well prepared, with choice of sides. They are good with kids (small plastic cups for drinks, and these are also good for older clients who can't life heavy glasses). Particularly...More

Great service. Nice outdoor patio. Cioppino was good but some heat would have taken it to another level...be prepared to use your hands! The crab cakes were decent, not too much bread which is a plus. Coleslaw needed seasoning and the garlic in mashed potatoes...More
