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 excellent. We'll probably eat here again during this trip and highly recommend King's. Glad to see there's a King's location in Tempe, Arizona, too. We'll try that the next time we are in the Phoenix area.

We quickly figured out that dinner is a better experience once you leave LEGOLAND. There are several options nearby. King's is located in a strip mall area as you leave the park and head back to the freeway. This one is my favorite. It's a little more pricey than other chain restaurants, but the food is really good, both for adults and children. It's large so there isn't a long wait and the menu/crayons for the children has a lot of activities (a bonus as you wait for dinner - parents who take children to restaurants know this). This is a better option than most.

When I crave a fine seafood dining experience, my husband and I visit Kings. I love the scallops and my husband favors the salmon. Always good service and fresh fish.

Love this place, especially in June, when there are whole lobster specials. Food is always well prepared, with choice of sides. They are good with kids (small plastic cups for drinks, and these are also good for older clients who can't life heavy glasses). Particularly like the sand dabs, a type of fish infrequently seen in San Diego County.

Great service. Nice outdoor patio. Cioppino was good but some heat would have taken it to another level...be prepared to use your hands! The crab cakes were decent, not too much bread which is a plus. Coleslaw needed seasoning and the garlic in mashed potatoes was absent. They offer sourdough bread prior to the meal which was warm and tasty with some butter. The apple cobbler was decent but the juice/sauce of the cobbler was thin. Overall still a decent meal with filling portions. Dinner is a tad pricey but lunch may be better. Would revisit & try other menu items.
