Started with the ceviche. Three kinds of fish served with yummy tostadas. Enough for three or four to share. The clam chowder lived up to its rep and was just perfect. My daughter's grilled mahi mahi was delish and my swordfish was perfectly cooked. Moscow Mule was mixed exactly right and served in a copper cup as it should be.... More

We ate on the terrace. Service was excellent -thanks Derrick. Halibut was a large portion macadamia crusted with a citrus ginger sauce (sauce was just a little bland) and very tasty. Sand dabs were lightly crusted & delicate. Scallops were ordered seared & arrived golden. Sautéed spinach was excellent as we're the glazed carrots.

I ate here last Monday night and this place did not disappoint. It was my first visit in 3 years and the food rocks. I ordered the Spicy Tuna Roll, followed by their seafood chowder which tasted like Manhattan style for you East Coasters. My entree was their Blackened British Columbia salmon and it was awesome and ordered sautee spinach... More

Found the restaurant on Open Table. Greeted warmly and offered a seat inside or outside on the heated patio. Server was friendly and upbeat. I asked her about the Alaskan Sand Dig and she highly recommended the fish. She suggested the ratatouille and spinach, which ended up being perfect accompaniments. The Sand Dig was delicious and I ended the meal... More

I have been coming here for a long time. They have the best clam chowder ever. Their sourdough bread is to die for. Their salads are fresh. Good prices. Good service. Always pleased to eat here.

We have been eating at Kings for many years. It's almost always good, but once in a while falls a bit short. On this visit, we had the 1/2 lb of pacific wild shrimp and it was great. My wife had the wild salmon for dinner and I had the swordfish. Her's was great and mine was good. Swordfish is... More

I tried my first oyster..I don't get the fuss..the chicken wings and baked potato was a hit! I ordered crab cakes and they were simply ok..you could taster the grease so I wasn't super impressed. The bread and butter were wonderful!!!

I dropped by Kings for a late dinner on the run. The hostess was friendly and seated me quickly in a 2 person booth. Service began within several minutes and was consistent throughout the meal. I opted for the seafood Cobb salad with a light dressing. The salad was huge and contained perfectly cooked shrimp and scallops. Everything about the... More

King's is a regular for our family. The quality and preparation of the fish is always excellent. They do have menu selections for the non-fish eaters in the family. Everyone loves the choice of sides. Patio dining can be a bit quieter, but noise inside is not bad. Love the booths the have. Servers are always top notch. Parking can... More
