This is the second year we have returned to King's for very good fish dinners. In fact, we ate there two nights in a row to sample different types of fresh fish and sushi. We highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a good place to have dinner. There are good selection of fish. The appetizers are good, fried artichokes being our favorite.

This is a casual fish place that is roomy, friendly and fast. King crab was delicious ($54 pound and a half) many other fresh fish offerings as well as fried in the 15-20 range. Full bar, attractive interior.

Enjoy lunch here with its specials and always good seafood selections. Nice menu variety and daily lunch specials. God food supplemented by local craft beer choices. Quality but not inexpensive.

The restaurant is located across the street from the outlet mall and certainly has a nice ambience with wood paneling as well as unique decorations. There is indoor and outdoor seating as well as covered and uncovered patio seating. The menu is very extensive and offers salads, soups, steak and seafood in a large variety. We had the crab cakes,... More

This is conveniently located with lots of parking. We walked in around 7 pm with no problem getting seated. Our waitress was pleasant. We ordered the lobster which was suppose to be 1 1/4 lb but we both agreed that it was not as we have lobster quite often. We ordered the add on Clam Bake to the meal but... More

I have wanted to eat at this restaurant for a number of years during our frequent vacation trips to Carlsbad, CA. We never got around to it until recently. Our experience was mixed: We were greeted promptly (reservations), given a table in the enclosed patio and waited for our server. The clams on the half shell were very good; cold,... More

A wonderful go to restaurant for lunch. Indoor or outdoor seating. Near the factory outlet mall and the Automobile Row.Wondeful service and exceptional seafood choices. San Francisco Sourdough with lots of butter to go with chowder & fish. We have recently moved to the area and this is near the top of our list for a pleasant lunch.

Thank RRHamilton
