THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Kingfish Cafe Restaurant Review

: Sisters Laurie and Leslie Coaston celebrate their family’s food-loving heritage at the Kingfish Café. With their mother, Geraldine, still turning out sweet potato pies and sharing her cornbread muffin recipe, this is one don’t-miss Southern comfort meal. Dishes include gumbo filled with chicken, prawns and fish; signature mac ‘n’ cheese; and griddlejacks made with black-eyed peas. We like Miss Choo Choo’s Company’s Comin’ rib-eye, which gets gussied up with a spicy peach relish and lush corn pudding. Be sure to save room for the moist red velvet cake or bread pudding prepared with chunks of apples and laced with bourbon sauce. Service is warm and professional, and the setting features an old-world ambience in a room with high, deep-blue ceilings, velvet drapes and subtle lighting. Go early or go mid-week to avoid the inevitable wait, since seating is first-come, first-served.
