King's Seafood Company

In 1983, Jeff and Sam King signed their first lease together, and on the day before Thanksgiving, 6 weeks before the '84 Olympics, we opened our first concept, 555 East Steakhouse, and we still own and operate the restaurant today.

King's Seafood is family owned and operated, and has been growing and evolving for over 70 years! In 1945, Lou and Mickey King (Jeff and Sam King's respective fathers), began to build the King's Restaurant network throughout Southern California. As of today, we operate 23 restaurants, 7 concepts, and our own distribution company. We continue to grow gracefully and organically.
