Friends recommended King’s Fish House; glad we gave it a try. The fresh crab and cocktail were excellent, Caesar salad was average. But after a hot day watching soccer matches, the AC was perfect!

Dependable, consistent chain. Excellent selection of seafood, oysters, side dishes. Entrees come with selections of side dishes. Good spot for soup (clam chowders) and salads. House bread is very tasty. Well-orchestrated service. Skilled wait staff.
