We have eaten here before and always had great food and service, lunch today was no exception except for the issue we had with fellow dinners and the beating sun on our table that management ignored. Firstly our table of 9 family members aged from 13 to 60 was right at the front of the boardwalk. We were all having... More

Visited the restaurant prior to seeing Carmen. Arrived very early and were greeted by an enthusiastic Irish waitress who was fantastic from start to finish! It was no bother to get our table way before our due time and just sit and have a couple of leisurely drinks. The menu for us was nicely balanced and easy to choose from,... More

The location and view are fantastic, and any place called a 'crabhouse' wins me over. Unfortunately, there only seemed to be two crab dishes on the menu - one was the crab legs, and the other a gazpacho. I had visions of of few more options, so I went with the bugs instead, while my partner enjoyed some giant crab... More

Went to dinner there after a five year period and was very disappointed. Food very ordinary. We had to send back a prawn dish because it had been cooked with human hair attached. Steak was very ordinary and lacked flavour. Kingsley is now more like an up market bistro than a restaurant that held its place long ago as fine... More

You know, I hardly write bad reviews...in fact this is my 2nd only. The reason I'm putting this out there is to try and stop this happening to anyone else. If you don't want to read this whole review, then I'll sum it up for you....it's overrated, way over priced with terrible service! Friends had the $70 wagyu beef which... More

We visited this restaurant with a group of friends who were local. They had recommended it and we were not to be disappointed. The oysters and the special prawn with chilli entree were lovely. My steak was tender and cooked perfectly but one or two in the group had steaks of not so good quality. The wines that were recommended... More

A very good location and great wine but unfortunately my partners steak wasnt cooked as ordered after they caught it as it was still running around all was good, but cant give more than 3 stars because this wasnt a pub counter lunch, the staff were great about it and we may try again.

The Alaskan crab at Kingsleys was the best we have eaten outside of the United States where we have tried it before. Definitely worth the price and we would highly recommend their other seafood as well.
