This restaurant is dedicated to the "Chefs, people and musicians of New Orleans"
Kingfish's motto is: "Eat like a King, Drink like a Fish"! The restaurant is 3 stories high one area on the top floor feels like a living room in someone's home with plush chairs and seating the lower floor below the main room are the tables, chairs and stage for the entertainment.
This is definitely the place to go for a great meal and good music. New Orleans R&B, Zydeco, Jazz and Funk. This restaurant can be a little pricey, but worth it.
