We had a long day with travel delays and just wanted a nice meal. We selected Jackie Ray's due to the abundance of positive reviews and nice variety of menus options. We were able to be seated immediately at the bar versus waiting 15 minutes for a table. I had the "Catch Of The Day" and my spouse had a... More

My husband and I are regulars at Jackie Rey's and we always recommend it to anyone- local or tourist. We love the local feel, the super fresh food, and the inviting atmosphere. Everything we have eaten here has been amazing. We highly recommend the Fresh Fish specials, BBQ ribs, the Ahi Tartare, and the brownie for 2! Definitely one of... More

The restaurant itself is a large open room with a bar at one side. It's family friendly and a bit noisy. We've eaten here twice because the food is just so darn good. There is a choice of delicious preparations for the fresh seafood, but other items on the menu sound pretty appealing. The wine list is small but good... More

Great presentation. Great flavors. My wife had chicken tacos. In many place this would be a second rate choice. She loved them! The aioli sauce was flavored perfectly making them unique and delicious. I had the 12 oz pork chop. Barely done but flavored with just the right amount of salty and a slight sweetness in the sauce. The steamed... More

We didn't make a reservation, so we knew it might be busy, but we chose to eat at the bar rather than wait for a table. Though it was a little squishy, we got excellent service and enjoyed our meals. The presentation was lovely and overall we had a good time. It wasn't necessarily anything extra special for me, but... More

Reasonably priced seafood and meat grill, up the hill a ways from downtown, gotta drive there. Good family atmosphere, unpretentious mix of tourists and locals

Jackie Rey's consistently offers up great food & outstanding service! It's always busy, so call ahead for a reservation. We went this week to celebrate my 61st Birthday and Jackie Rey's didn't disappoint! We started with the Hawaiian Margarita's - fantastic! For a starter, try the Kalua Pork Spring Rolls with the sweet chili sauce! Really yummy! For the mains,... More

When we visit the Big Island each year, we always make time to visit Jackie Rey's place. They have incredible eye-catching food combinations for each dish. The fish is always fresh caught and grilled to perfection. The Kahlua pork is to die for. Lots of color is used, such as the purple-blue pureed sweet potato and fresh flowers on select... More

The locals rave about this restaurant, which has been here 'forever'. If you are a foodie, definitely drop in here. - Well, don't drop in; make a reservation. It's been discovered and even on a Wednesday night, the evening we went, it can be full. We ate at the bar, not having thought ahead, so you might try that if... More
