Got there at 5:30pm on a Saturday night. No wait, but we sat on the patio. They have heaters, and enclosed the area with plastic sheets. However, we sat by the door, so cold air from the restaurant was coming inside our seating area. Not a problem for me, but my wife and 5 year old son sat further away... More

I don't like most reviews of restaurants because many reviews are very extreme. I have seen a 1 and a 5 at the same restaurant and that is just not right. Service is s factor, but the taste always prevails. Kings is a 3 and maximum 3.5-3.75 in my opinion. We happened to have a terrible experience last visit (they... More

Both of our selections, Calamari steak and shrimp salad, were fresh and tastily prepared. Portions were large so both of us departed with boxes of leftovers. If I am in Carlsbad again I would...

We recently had lunch at the King's Fish house restaurant with friends from Los Angeles.The lobster was excellent, as well as the BBQ shrimp we had for appetizer. The staff were very helpful in helping us chose enough items as we wanted to eat family style and share. This was our third visit with different groups of people and every... More

This is the second year we have returned to King's for very good fish dinners. In fact, we ate there two nights in a row to sample different types of fresh fish and sushi. We highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a good place to have dinner. There are good selection of fish. The appetizers are good, fried artichokes being our favorite.

This is a casual fish place that is roomy, friendly and fast. King crab was delicious ($54 pound and a half) many other fresh fish offerings as well as fried in the 15-20 range. Full bar, attractive interior.

Enjoy lunch here with its specials and always good seafood selections. Nice menu variety and daily lunch specials. God food supplemented by local craft beer choices. Quality but not inexpensive.
