First time there. Only one lobster item on the menu and it was not cheap. Might try the fish and shrimp if I go back, but was not that impressed with plastic spoons and paper plates and baskets. It's worth a try, but there is better and nicer......just not in that area. AND, it IS across from Light Rail.

Six of us - good friends went to Knock Kneed Lobster for a late lunch. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the Cod, with French Fries, Cole Slaw, Special order of Fried Okra, Hush Puppies, etc. Wonderful food with good friends with interesting conversation. That says it all !!!

I got the seafood platter and it was wonderful. I was puzzled when they said you only get ONE shrimp, but it was the biggest I had ever seen! I got the fried zucchini as a side ahs it was really good. The hushpuppies had a taste of deviled crab which I love. Don't let the outside fool you, This... More

I've been here twice now & it's been very good & consistent. I had the 3 piece fish & 3 piece shrimp with fries. Great crunch on the batter. The piece of shrimp is actually 3-4 small shrimp bunched together into one big long shrimp log. The cocktail & tarter sauce is made in house & it is unreal...the perfect... More

We came by this place by accident while picking up tickets to a concert. So glad we turned around to give it a try. I had the 2 piece fish & chips while hubby had 1 piece fish and 1 piece shrimp. 1 piece of fish would have been suffice but was sooooo delicious. Definitely a place to get your... More

First time here. Best fish in Phoenix hands down! Beats Pete's and Pirates. Mmmmmm. My wife brought me here and told me that it was better and I agree. Tastes fresher than the other places. That's pretty hard for not living near the sea or rivers

The fish and chips are always fresh and hot. Cod is lightly breaded and very generous portions and reasonably priced.

Wow, just wiw. I visited knock kneed f&c for the first time on the recommendation of a friend with extensive experience with the place. Kind of tucked in to an older part of town,Washington and 32nd in downtown Phoenix. Nothing fancy about the exterior. Interior decor very fun, homey, and quaint. Fish nets with shells hand down from the ceiling.... More

Well the cafe was cute, across from the Jack in the Box. Inside seemed pleasant. Ordered 2 piece fish and chips. I am not a picky eater, and sorry for the unkind review but the fish was horrible and tasted old and rubbery. I didn't complain, just ate the fries and tried to tear all the batter off the fish...

My husband and I wanted to try some fish tacos. Unfortunately when we arrived it was to discover they don't do tacos on Friday. We were bummed. Until our food came.
