Where else do you order fish and chips and they ask you... What kind of fish you want. All fresh, lightly battered (wonderful) and for a real treat, try the Ono Ono, then the Mahi Mahi the next time

I'm not blaming Quinns, I'm rethinking about my friends who think fishy-tasting fish is good fish! Quinns is an awesome football place for those of us from the Mainland! Although they seem to lean a little bit toward the Greenbay Packers. GO BEARS! '-)

Dinner after a four mile walk down the coast to White Sands Beach. Kalbi beef rib Pupus was the best. My wife really enjoyed the Sirloin tips and I liked the crab grilled cheese with pineapple slaw.

I was prepared for a tourist trap with lousy food, but I was pleasantly surprised. The waitress was really friendly and made some good suggestions. Most important, the food was quite good.

My wife sat with a local on the flight to Kona from Honolulu, who strongly suggested we go to Quinn's FIRST before driving up to Waikoloa to our hotel. Despite being a bit road weary from a day's travel, we immediately visited Quinn's before taking the drive north and were not disappointed. The Ono Fish & Chips and a glass... More

Really had a wonderful time here: service was good and price was fair. We loved the option of having a salad as a side instead of fries. Friendly staff and nice crowd. Did not make a reservation, but they had room. It is well located and fun.

Great place for lunch! Outstanding fish and chips (fresh ono or ahi) and ice cold beer. One of our go-to places in Kona.

The prices were not bad and the atmosphere is not bad. It has a sports bar that is great if you are a Packers fan. The bar is themed for the Pack. The food was good but not amazing. A solid place to enjoy lunch or dinner.

The waitress was surly and only gave the minimum of effort to smile because she knew she would have to to get a tip. The food was OK,the sashimi was good, the onion rings were over battered and doughy.

When my gf said she wanted to eat fish and chips today... We drove straight to Quinn's. Fast friendly service with excellent fish. I ordered a custom club sandwich and they made it perfect. Super friendly waitress served with a smile ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ‘
