Newly remodel King’s was an excellent experience. From the excellent service to the great tasting food. They bring out some bread that is just off the hook. We really enjoyed our lunch.

It’s hard to find fresh seafood, and especially shell fish, in San Diego. King's Fish House often comes through. Atmosphere is friendly though not upscale.

We eat out a lot and I have to say - we got the best octopus we have ever eaten at Kings’s. And Cheviche and Poke were excellent as well. And those oysters- super fresh! Wonderful visit, do go there, you won’t regret
