Consistently Good

The best! Always good. You can't go wrong. Fresh fish sandwiches and pineapple coleslaw. I have been going there at least a couple of times a month and it has never been bad.

We were delighted to be able to get sandwiches here after a late arrival at the Kona airport. Service was good, did not rush us, and were very willing to seat and feed us near closing. Good start of our trip. Good sandwich and fries.

Serving food until 11pm makes Quinn's a great place to eat when that dive boat gets in late. Nothing like a bowl of clam chowder and a pina colada to get those land legs back.

My wife got Mahi and I got Ono fish and chips and they were very good. Good value and fun meal. Service was good and this restaurant is easy to find. Parking could be a challenge but we were lucky.

I allow myself one burger a month, and when I'm due for a great burger, I go to Quinn's. It's not fancy, but the food is good -- it's a place I often take visitors so they can get a little taste of the non-touristy side of Kona.

Awesome local hang out!! If your looking for a non tourist hang out this the place. Opened in 79 and the cook and his wife a waitress bought it from the original owner and haven't changed a thing.

With so many places to eat in Kona I feel that this is just an average place. We had to fish and chips... the fish was soggy and tasteless and the French fries were frozen. We had a couple of their dishes to try some things out you need everything with oily and greasy. It was my first time visiting... More

Reviews used to be right, they DID have the best fish and chips in town. These were so overcooked that they were very dry inside and had no flavor at all. The chips were only warm. And, for $14, the food was served in a plastic "basket". My wife's fork had used food the size of a dime on it.... More

Checked this place out for supper one night. Lined up so we had to wait for a table. We sat at the bar. The place was packed with people. Had music going and tvs on. We waited for about 20 minutes then we were seated on the patio. The service was good and the meals were good.

We always go for the Sashimi and Fish & Chips. Not over breaded or greasy. Opt for sitting outside as the AC is usually cranked up to the max indoors.
