After a long day of travelling from Canada we finally arrived in Kona late in the evening. Finding Quinn's the only place open we went in only to find they were about to close. BUT, they need generously kept the kitchen open for us and served us perfect Hawaiian drinks while we waited for our meals. The food was great,... More

The fish, shrimp and chips were very tasty, however it would have been much better if it was served on a plate rather than paper lined basket. Try not no eat the paper with your meal. The service was just O.K.

This is one of the few places open "late" in the area. Good burgers, good drinks. The onion rings were pretty greasy though.

With so many choices in Kailua-Kona to eat, Quinn's was a little disappointing. The fish and chips were not as good as other locations. The service was average.

Best fish and chips hands down! We stopped here for lunch. Atmosphere is not fancy and seems to be a favorite of locals. Food was great for a reasonable price and drinks were good. All 6 of had fish and chips with Ono being the fish of the day. Very very good.

Very reasonably priced, friendly staff. Steamed clams were very good, ono fish & chips were also good (a dish they are known for). No special ambiance or atmosphere other than a good casual place to grab some food and couple of beers - perfect if that is what you are looking for (and we were). It was a bar/restaurant but...

Right across the street from the Courtyard and easy location at the beginning of Ali’i Drive. Mango margarita and fish tacos were delicious.
