Not a fancy place, but the food is excellent, the portions are more than most can eat and the prices (especially for the tourist area of Kona) are very reasonable. Also,unlike almost all of the restaurts in this area, they are open late at night. Each of the 4 of us had a different selection and none could finish. Fish... More

We came to Quinn’s ABTS on our first night on Hawaii and enjoyed full plates and good value. The menu was easy to choose from and just as well as we were hungry. My choice was a no-frills burger; another’s choice was fish and chips. The place was almost full yet the service was friendly and fast enough. There was... More

Just off the shoreline. Great selection of beers, bar food. Wonderful fish and chips. Packer stuff everywhere (I'm a fan). Go there while the game is on and you'll have a blast. They even put out nice snacks during the game.

This is one of the best places to eat on the island for the price and the amount of food you get. We have eaten here every year we come to the Island. The Fresh Fish and chips are the best. The service is always great and friendly. This place is must stop, Highly Recommend it.

I visit this restaurant each time I visit the Big Island and I have never been disappointed. The ono fish and chips by far the best I have tasted...the portions are huge...great value for the money... the service is always excellent!

This place was recommended by several friends as having the best fish and chips in the area. Not true. The chips were quite good as was my mai tai but the fish batter was soggy and not hot. Bad. The service was very poor. I gave my wife most of the tip. She was pretty frustrated. Go elsewhere.

We have eaten here twice and always found the portions very large. Our fish (good Ono) and chips required a box to take several pieces home. We enjoyed an early meal in the AC and watching the Royals win a game tonight on the TV.

We loved the opportunity to sit in the outside area all 3 times we visited Quinn's. The food and service were always great and prices were reasonable. Great location right on Ali'i Drive.
