I was recommending Kingfish Hall to an out-of-town visitor (immediate family). They responded by telling me they went there for lunch, and were, um, disappointed. The discriminating palates in the group called the clam chowder "wretched," and the greek salad "a sorry excuse." The less discriminating palates described very tired-sounding fish and chips. I haven't been in a while, but the 2-3 times I've been they did pretty well. Is Kingfish Hall known to have lost it?
For the visitors, the overprice was to be expected, but the rotten quality, not to mention the nasty waitress, was pretty dramatic. Of course, this happened the day after they were lied to at Legals, where after a two-hour wait, having been told 40 minutes, they were told we don't know when we'll seat you.
Y'all come back now, y'hear? Not a good show for Boston.
