Went here with my brother and family. The decor is nice and bright. Service was good. I enjoyed the large selection of beer to choose from. I had swordfish, and it was quite tasty though thinner than I was used to back East. Still, it was quite worth while. My nephew did not like his lobster however--I think the butter... More

The service was good and the swordfish was excellent- perfectly grilled so that it was tender and practically melted in your mouth. The sautéed spinach was also very good- fresh and garlicky. The New England chowder did not satisfy this Cape Cod girl. It had celery and bacon in it and an odd sweetish flavor which the server sad was... More

An extensive seafood menu and beautifully prepared. We love seafood and have been repeatedly unimpressed with San Diego's restaurant offerings. King's Fish House was a great satisfaction.

Nice decor in an out-parcel building in a strip mall, the greeter was friendly as was the eventual waitress. Menu was large, prices ranged from moderate up. An edamame appetizer was good, and the combination platter had good scallops, ok shrimp, and soggy-(and overly crusted) fish. French fried were average at best. A 1/2 bottle of a California Chardonnay was... More

I and a friend ate dinner here. Had the crab cake appetizer (ok) sand dabs (light, fresh, tasty) and cioppino (generous, hot, good flavor) entrees. Sauteed spinach and zucchini sides were also good. Key lime pie for dessert was authentic. A bit pricey but great service and pleasant, quiet clean atmosphere

Even arrived 30 minutes early and our seating was already waiting for us and they seated us as we arrived. There was 10 of us including 2 young children. We ordered several appetizers which included fried oysters and Jumbo Castroville Artichoke all of which were... More

We made same day reservations through the website for a Saturday night at 6 for 10 people. They easily accommodated us and called to confirm later in the day. Great kids menu and drink cups to keep. It is definitely a nicer place for dinner, but still family friendly and comfortable. It's a bit spendy. I couldn't pass up the... More
