First time visit for my wife and I. When asked if we wished seating in the patio area or air conditioned room, we sat in the AC room. (Seemed more young kids were in the AC area as well.) It didn't feel air conditioned and after i walked back to patio room, I should have chosen it. The patio area... More

We went here because it was a close place to the Marriott Beach Hotel and reviews were pretty good on Trip Advisor. We walked in and seated ourselves. It was a while before anyone came to our table, as it seemed the server who was covering this room went AWOL and another young lady realized she wasn't there and picked... More

Good: the ono fish n' chips. I lean more towards a tender fish like cod (over halibut), so the ono was a bit tough for me, but excellent batter and portions. Nice intimate patio with plants all around. They do draft specials on Football Sundays so you can hang out with like-minded fans. Bad: I did not like the fact... More

This is a very relaxed and fun pub almost by the sea. Great fish and chips to go with a cold beer. Comfortable seating inside or out.

Quinns is a hidden gem if you are looking for good food, good prices and good service. We went with a party of 14 and everyone was very happy with their meals (not easy with this crowd). People who had the fish and chips raved about the taste and there was tons of food for the price. I had the... More

We were looking for a last minute spot to do some "team building" fr work, after our plans fell through at another place, and Quinn's came through. They set up and allowed us to use their air conditioned room, for the dinner crowd was already gone, which allowed our team to save and enjoy our evening, with drinks and Pupu's.... More

Knowledgeable staff provided some great insight into Hawaiian craft beers. Off to Wailea as a result. Sesame crusted Ahi was fresh and delicious on a bed of spinach with some amazing papaya seed dressing. Enjoyed our visit

We always order the Fish and Chips, which is more than one person can usually eat! Great, delicate fried batter on fresh ono or mahimahi! Can't beat it! Chips or coleslaw!

Had really good ahi tuna here. Calamari was just okay. Open later than most other restaurants. Conveniently located. I would definitely check it out. We were just looking for a late night snack, so it worked for us.

We went there for lunch and food was pretty good. I wanted fish and my husband wanted his usual cheeseburger. I had Fish and Chips (Ono). It was cooked nicely and was plentiful (I couldn't finish it all). Our waitperson was polite and helpful. Wish we'd been able to go again so I could have tried other things on the... More
