Enjoyed a nice family meal on a busy weekend evening. Service was prompt and available when needed. Food well prepared and presented. Sourdough bread is always the best! Always a pleasant dining experience!

My dinner of small plates started with a Caesar salad, followed by a bowl of miso soup, and finally a plate of ahi poke which was attractively arranged. Since I'm not fond of spicy flavors, the poke sauce was served on the side. Truly irresistible was the very warm, freshly baked sourdough bread. I would have had more, but had... More

This is a good all round seafood restaurant. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good. They have the widest range of oysters that I have ever seen. A tad pricey but this is Southern California. Good place.

We really like coming to this restaurant and eating in the bar. We like the bar because it is a little livelier in "people watching" and music, although the patio and main dining area are fine, too. Many times you can get a seat in the bar (nice booths!) when the main room is full. Call ahead if you want... More

We were on spring break and met up with seven other fellow educators from Arizona. The reviews looked good and Kings Fish House was centrally located. I had the Macadamia coated Halibut. It was a bit dry and the flavor of the fish was not as sweet as I am use to. For the price I would have expected that... More

We were staying at the Hilton Marbrisa resort and looking for seafood options close to the hotel. Kings fit the bill so we decided to give it a try. Kings accepts reservations online so booking was easy and we didn't have to wait for a table when we got to the restaurant. We sat outside which was nice, except they... More

Terrible service the first time we visited, but it was very crowded so we gave them the benefit of the doubt. The second time, the restaurant was almost empty and we got lots of attention. But somehow they still couldn't get food to the table before it was cold. The plates were cold, and fish and vegetables were luke warm.... More

Food was nice but workers were not. The lady who received us was not smiling at all and showed no sign of hospitality. We were served the wrong food which should have gone to other people. Our bill came including the wrong items and no one apologized.

This is the first time we have been to this chain restaurant. With too few sea food restaurants in Carlsbad we thought we would give it a go. Well it is just what you would expect from a chain restaurant--only worst. Of course you can expect to pay high prices for sea food, and that was not the problem. Here... More
