  • My fave fried chicken and greens in Seattle. Red velvet cake the size of your face! Crab cakes to die for. And amazing photography, family memorabilia and decors.
  • get the side of cornbread as well, it comes with a fantastic pepper jam
  • Bar isn't open for lunch. Beer & wine only!
  • Mint julep, fried chicken, roasted yam!
  • Try the cornbread!
  • Check out our New Happy Hour Monday - Friday 4:00 - 6:00 pm
  • Catfish was de-lish. Cozy and busy little spot! They were out of red velvet cake, but the coconut cake did not disappoint. Will go back to try and catch that red velvet!
  • Close the door behind you when it's cold out! It gets stuck on the pavement outside.
  • Brunch is awesome. Order the Fried Chicken and Waffle.For dinner, order a side of cornbread. It comes with a delicious jalapeno chutney.
  • Best collard greens!!
  • Get the chicken n waffles. With syrup AND gravy!
  • Amazing corn bread and peach cobbler. Wish is was served with vanilla ice cream instead of whipped cream.
  • The chicken grits and gravy dish is a must have entree! Kingfish is one of my favorite breakfast restaurants. Great southern style cuisine!
  • Best southern food in Seattle, and perhaps the south.
  • Go to the Kingfish Cafe at lunchtime instead of dinner, skip the crowds and get a buttermilk fried chicken salad.
  • Keep the number from Wilford Brimley's diabetes supply company on hand should you decide to tackle one of the Kingfish Cafe's enormous desserts on your own.
  • if I can only eat one food for the rest of my life, it will be an easy choice Kingfish's cornbread!
  • Great southern food but incredibly slow service and out of most types of alcohol! Frustrating
  • Shrimp & Grits.
  • Baby friendly. Good changing table in the women's bathroom (per the wifey)
