What a great meal!

We showed up at Jackie Rey's one night after our trip to Mauna Kea. We were tired, hungry, and so excited to see an open table. They took such good care of us and the food was wonderful. This restaurant was on my list of places to eat and we were not disappointed.

Food and drinks were excellent here. Best to make reservations! We all ordered something completely different, all excellent! Steak, pork chop, scallops and fresh catch........we all enjoyed our dinner. Be sure to try their new cocktail made with cucumber, gin and pomegranate juice.......delicious!

We ate out 5 nights while on our trip. This food and service was probably the best overall. We ate at Kona Inn, Fish Hopper, Splashers, and The Ponds in Hilo. All good, but this was the best food.

Food is delicious and all guests are treated like ohana. It's our family tradition to have our first meal on the island always be at Jackie Rey's. Make it your tradition, too. You won't be disappointed!!

This is a good for lunch restaurant that has good salads, burgers, local plates, etc. The prices are moderate and the service is good. Like other open air places, you will experience the occasional pesky fly, but it is clean and well run.

We were at Jackie Rey's for our daughter's wedding dinner. The table was covered with white craft paper, not even an linen table cloth! The prices were extremely high for what was offered. I understand it's Hawaii. Our server was excellent though. Mind you it was packed and this was a Sunday night!

Always a friendly atmosphere, greeted with smiles and the server at your table will be knowledgeable, courteous and again, friendly. The food comes fairly quickly and always is excellent. Fresh catch, fresh vegetables and beautifully arranged on your plate. Oh and did I mention the servings are the perfect quantity to eat.

Mai tais were very Limey and not very pleasant. Pulled pork cassadia was very greasy, outer pieces thick with cheddar cheese, inner pieces more pulled pork, unappetizing presentation. Onion soup was thin, could have had more onions but generally good. Service was typical of a truck stop diner okay but nothing outstanding. Possibly a bad day

We have been to Kona three times and have eaten at Jackie Rey's every time either for lunch or dinner. The service and food are consistently good. Dinners are expensive..minimum of $30 for fresh fish or a steak. Only one pasta on the menu. Even though the fresh fish is excellent with several different preparation options, I feel the portion...
