In part I, we reviewed a few starters and cocktails on the menu at Kincaid’s Fish, Chop and Steakhouse. Located on Fisherman’s Wharf in Redondo, Kincaid’s has an excellent waterfront location, where you can enjoy brunch, lunch, happy hour or a leisurely dinner while watching the sun set on the Pacific.
Kincaid’s makes everything fresh here, and highlights the meat and seafood flavors using an apple wood fired grill. You can expect to get smoky touches on seafood and juicy steaks, bringing the richness up a notch.
We sampled two wellington dishes, the Seafood Wellington and the Filet Mignon Wellington. The seafood wellington was stuffed with crab, scallops, prawns, spinach and smoky mushrooms. Finished tableside with a very light lemony béarnaise, this dish has plenty of seafood nestled in the huge puff pastry. The filet wellington was a full 8-oz filet covered with smoked mushrooms and finished with a brandy mustard sauce. The thick filet was cooked perfectly – as you can see by the pictures this is the meat lovers’ dish. Served with potato and grilled asparagus, you have one great meal.
The Drunken Mahi Mahi was spicy with blackening seasoning and topped with a fresh crab ceviche. A nice contrast between the spice and the cool topping. This dish was served atop a heavenly tomato cream risotto.
Broiled Lobster Tail comes with a tea candle powered butter holder to keep the clarified butter ready for dipping the sweet rich meat. Served with truffled potatoes and grilled asparagus lobster fans will love the simple preparation and the wood fire flavor in the lobster meat.
On to desserts! Save room to share one of these, they were all divine. The Key Lime Pie was silky smooth, with a mellow lime flavor. The pucker power comes from the lime sorbet served alongside. Burnt Crème, aka Crème Brule is served chilled and has a great crunch of broiled sugar crust as you dip into the decadent custard.
A really fun dessert to share is the Dessert Waffles. Two golden waffles covered in ice cream, strawberries, butterscotch and chocolate sauce and topped with in-house candied pecans. The waffles and pecans provide the salt and crunch and the fruit, ice cream and sauce the sweet. It was ever so addicting.
Freshly prepared, generous portions, Kincaid’s should be on your list for a leisurely meal, be it brunch, lunch or dinner. Kincaid’s will be open for both Christmas and New Year’s and will feature the Rock Salt Crusted Prime Rib along with limited steak, seafood and chicken dishes. Kincaid’s would be an excellent place for your holiday meal or New Year’s Eve party with plenty of windows to enjoy the ocean view from the inside or sit on the large outdoor patio.
General Manager Reggie Thomas and our servers Jessie and Amber couldn’t have been more welcoming. Prices here are moderate, but remember portions are large as you can see from our pictures so expect to take home lunch for the next day.
Kincaid’s is located at 500 Fisherman’s Warf, Redondo Beach, CA
