We have lived in Statesville for a while and didn't realize what we were missing with not going to King of the Sea. We decided to try it and we were not disappointed at all.

My wife and I and another couple ate there in March 2017 and we all enjoyed our selections from salmon to baked fish to the hushpuppies and sides. Everything was very tasty and the service was swift and attentive.

An enjoyable evening out with my dad. We absolutely enjoyed the fish camp experience. It was quite a value. The portion sizes were large. There's something on the menu for everyone!
