    Great food in casual environment, not rushed but able to take time and enjoy a long dinner with family. A bit pricey but that old saying "you get what you pay for." Appetizers, entrees and desserts we all excellent, cocktails just so so. All said we'll go back.

    Father’s Day dinner. We had a fabulous dinner. The food was very flavorful. We started out with the trio appetizer sampler-egg roll, wings and bacon wrapped shrimp. The King of the day had the surf & turf, the Prince had the Hawaiian Snapper with risotto, the Princess had the pulled bbq brisket sandwich with fries and I the Queen had the scallops with risotto. For dessert we had the trio sampler, crème brûlée and apple caramel bread pudding all of which were delicious. Service was a little slow but to be expected with the holiday. Also, for starters they give the table homemade chips with a bleu cheese sauce. We will definitely be returning.

    It's not the neighborhood "Mr. E's"" any more, but the upgraded facility is a nice change. Prices, too, have increased significantly (entrees dramatically). Will reduce our frequency of dining here.

    The new owners have done a phenomenal job renovating this restaurant and updating the menu. While several menu items are pricey, weekday specials and moderately-priced menu items will keep us coming back. The staff is well-trained, efficient and professional, and the food coming out of the kitchen is quick and delicious.

    First time at King's Tavern. Really hard-working servers aiming to please. Feed was plentiful and tasty. My wife had the crab-stuffed seabass and I had red snapper. Both delicious. Bacon-wrapped shrimp appetizer was excellent. Buffalo chicken eggroll app was good too, though sauce was more of a barbeques than wing style. Good drinks.

    The food was outstanding! The mushroom bisque was incredible-flavor, consistency, and presentation was the best I have ever had. I was hesitant on ordering the crablegs because they came with potato salad but was pleasantly surprised by how good it was! Tasted homemade with just the right amount of mayonnaise and seasoning. The crabcake I ordered in addition to my meal was delicious-full of lump crab meat and flavor. NO filling. Prices were much higher than I thought but due to the quality I was ok with paying it for a night out. Would not frequent often at that price level though unfortunately. A little problem with service but it was rectified quickly and professionally. Waitstaff was very friendly and efficient.

    If You haven’t visited this establishment yet you’re missing out. In all three times we’ve been here, everything from appetizers entrées dessert drinks and especially the service has been nothing short of incredible. Steaks juicy delicious and cooked perfectly. Baked clam appetizer and scallops wrapped in bacon special appetizer were delicious. Seabass stuffed with crab imperial over spinach and risotto was delicious and the fish was cooked just right. Matt our server last night was superb and made excellent recommendations. This definitely is a local hidden gem and we are so thankful we found it.

    First visit. Comfortable and relaxed environment. Our server was very friendly and attentive. While the apps were amazing, our main courses were mixed. The strip steak in particular was disappointing. Hopefully just an off night. Will be back to try again.

    We decided to try Kings Tavern based on what we had heard on Facebook and other social media. This place used to be known as Mr. E's but in the past year or two has undergone a change of ownership and overhaul. The food was very good, and the drinks were strong. Unfortunately, I must say the dining room is rather dull and certainly not fancy. It looks just like a 1960's or 1970's restaurant with a new paint job -- which is what it is. The food menu is great -- I was just hoping for a more romantic, upscale experience and this is not it.

    Food was good. Temperature was hot when brought to table. We had seafood Diavlo and stuffed lobster tails. Had a reservation so we were taken directly to a table. Only complaint was water glass was not kept filled and my husband drinks water consistently throughout his meal. Like that menu has a wide variety. Also like that it’s not high class so don’t have to get all dressed up. I like being comfortable in clothing.

    The food is great, but can be pricey, depending on what is ordered. The daily specials are excellent value. Our table was near the door to the patio and while most servers tried to keep it from banging shut, at least one waitress didn't seem to care at all about it - it was pretty distracting and loud. I think the closer just needs to be adjusted to close more softly - hopefully that can be remedied. Can't wait till you have patio heaters for chillier evenings as well.

    We love this place. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is welcoming. You can’t beat the happy hour offered daily from 4 pm - 6 pm, daily. This has definitely climb to one of our favorite spots and love that it's a casual setting. There’s a detour right now on 340 but don’t let that keep you from going. Take 30 bypass west to the Airport exit, turn right to first stop sign and turn right on to S. Bonsall to 340. Turn right on to 340 and go a couple miles and the Kings is in your left. Easy.

    Our experience was disappointing. It started out great - the hostess greeted us promptly and was very friendly. We chatted while our table was set and she pointed out a few of her favorite items on the menu. We entered the dining room and it was stifling! There was no air moving and it was at least 80 degrees. The servers were visibly sweating! Apparently the air conditioning in that dining room wasn’t working and the restaurant didn’t see fit to inform any of the patrons prior to our arrival or when we checked in. Worse yet, there was outdoor dining (that we saw on the way out) and another dining room where there was properly functioning HVAC and we weren’t offered any of those positions. It was uncomfortable to the point that we thought about leaving. We stayed. The sea bass imperial special was NOT sea bass at all. It did not have the meaty texture or thickness of sea bass and was much more like flounder. The sweet corn risotto desperately needed salt. My son ordered the tuna steak and was served the ahi appetizer. The mistake was corrected and the meal was comped, which we really appreciated, but the rest of us were finished eating by the time the corrected entree arrived. The food has potential, but the uncomfortable heat made for a less than enjoyable evening.

    Went to King’s Tavern for our anniversary the first time after being a regular customer of Mr. E’s for many years. Outwardly, nothing has changed. The interior has been redone to raise the ambiance of the place, and it is now a fairly upscale eatery. The food was well prepared, and cooked as we ordered. I was somewhat shocked at the prices, however. One doesn’t expect center city Philadelphia pricing in the suburbs. The restaurant was busy when we got there on a Monday night, and if that is their average crowd, they are doing very well. The service was uniformly excellent — they have an overall quite young serving staff, with a few older servers, and the young staff showed evidence of thorough training both in service and setup. I was quite impressed. I had the bacon-wrapped filet, and my wife had the seafood Fra Diavolo. The filet was tender and medium-rare, as ordered, with hand mashed baked potatoes and haricot verte. There were approximately two large potatoes that went on my plate, though — much more than necessary except for presentation. The pasta dish was tasty and the seafood cooked through but still tender;perfectly done… but then over-sauced. The salads were uniformly excellent, both my wedge salad and my wife’s house salad, with just enough dressing, which is not easy to achieve. Desert was the warm Chocolate Stout cake, which was yummy, and a perfect dessert for two to split to end a overall excellent meal.

    Our first time there. Food was great, filet mignon, eggplant parmesan, and all the sides were cooked very well. We also got the bacon shrimp appetizer which was very good too... I like wings, so I ordered their ghost ryder wings. The ghost pepper sauce on the wings was the best hot wing sauce I ever had. It had a good bit of heat, and a great flavor, a combo I don't find very often with the hotter sauces. Also, the happy hour is observed throughout the restautrant, not just at the bar in some places. They offered 1/2 price on all drinks, not a limited selection. We will definitely go back to try other items on the menu. Wait staff was friendly and appropriately attentive. All in all, a good night out!

    We did not receive critical information that they have an entirely different menu and pricing on holidays such as Mother’s Day — which is the occasion we went. We were charged $50 a person for a buffet if lukewarm food. The final price came out to be over $200 for 4 people. We didn’t find that to be a fair figure for the services provided.

    $50 a head buffet with, at best, warm food. Didn't learn about "remote" parts of the buffet until we were done eating. Crab Cake Benedict sans Hollandaise is just wrong. The ham was delicious, the rest kind of meh. Quite surprised as an earlier on-menu experience was terrific.
