This was our splurge meal at the end of a trip. We had a super friendly server, fun activity kids sheet, and the food was really delicious. The treat factor was delivered.

King crab legs were really good but the server forgot to bring us bread and my baked potato was cold. The burger and fries my husband had were good. Nice atmosphere, decent prices.

Nice assortment of dishes. Waitstaff friendly. I ordered my fish with the mango salsa, which I was informed would be an extra $1. No prob. It comes out and I could count on one hand how many pieces of mango were on top of my mahi mahi. Little disappointed. Fish was cooked perfectly. Little overpriced, but it is a bit... More

There were five of us and everyone really enjoyed their food. From the fresh Sourdough bread to the excellent Clam Chowder and our meals. It was very good. Our server was excellent and she was well informed of the menu. The noise level was low enough where we could talk comfortably. I don't have one negative thing to say about... More

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

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

I met a family member here for early lunch. Parking was easy and we were seated immediately. Our servers were attentive and responsive throughout our meal. 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
