The King family has been satisfying the cravings of Maryland seafood lovers for over 60 years with fresh, delicious seafood! Sea King Seafood Markets is a family owned and operated business that continues to set its own standards for quality seafood products and customer service. Recognition within the industry, loyalty to our customers, and satisfaction from a job well done are the rewards of successful business decisions. Dedication—to our products and our customers—is the essence of everything we do.
In 1963, husband and wife team, Bill and Rolande King, purchased a Catonsville gas station and transformed the property into Sea King, a thriving seafood carryout. This was the first of several carryouts to open during the next 12 years. The King family joined together forming a strong love of the restaurant business to establish Sea King carryouts—the finest in raw, cooked and prepared seafood in the Baltimore area. All spices, rubs and recipes are developed in-house and created to bring out the best of Maryland’s seafood. Sea King carries a complete menu of fresh fish, seafood, platters, sandwiches, sides and salads.
And don’t forget the crabs! Everybody loves ’em and we’ve got ’em! From crabs to lobster—raw or prepared. Sea King makes superb what nature makes delicious!
Maryland is the place for seafood and we make it our family business to bring you the best. Whether you’re planning a party or picking up a complete dinner-to-go you’ll always be more than satisfied at Sea King Seafood Markets!
