Pleasant wait staff, vibrant decor, nice view of the water, great food. I recommend the Chef's Special potato and vegetable sides. Yesterday, it was mashed potatoes and broccoli, cob corn and cauliflower medley. We enjoyed blackened fish sandwich, and fish wraps.

Expect the unexpected. There's no saying what fauna may be passing by, no telling what delicious specials will be featured, and no telling what fun you will have until you step up to the plate! Visit Kingfish Grill again and again.
