Steak sandwich was tough.... options available are plentiful and service was good. The kids food options and activity book was really good.

Went to the restaurant not knowing much about it. Convenient location with lots of traffic and I assumed it was above average and not the Red Lobster type venue. Ordered the seafood platter expecting to be as described. Should have expected average amount and presentation...More

After shopping at the Carlsbad Outlet Mall, we wanted something to eat. King's was the answer. Great fish, (especially the halibut) and if you're lucky enough to get Phoebe as your waitress, you're in good hands. We needed to get to the airport and she...More

Great service and the food was amazing. Only good part of my hotel stay is that this was next door. The server looked just like Amada Portman. She was a great waitress. I would definitely go there again and bring all my friends.

Food was only OK. Fish and chips were greasy. Tried to order a strawberry daiquiri but was told they don't have them.

Great lunch or dinner at this restaurant. The clam chowders keep me coming back for more. They serve either white or red or you can a bowl of half and half. Salads are also not to be missed.

So this place had excellent Seafood fare, and for anyone that is familiar with the chain Duke's in Seattle, the menu and atmosphere are nearly identical. The waitress brought out a lobster for my kids to meet, which was a nice touch

Dined here for the 1st time while on vacation in Carlsbad. The raw oysters were simply terrific to start and the sand dabs were some of the best I've ever eaten. Hubby had a cup of clam chowder and fried catfish, both of which were...More
