I've been going to Quinn's since the 80s and I keep going back for the good food, large portions, friendly staff and its own sort of atmosphere. It's far from upscale, but there are times when Quinn's is "just right". Go there and enjoy!

Quinns is off the main road. It is the best place for onion rings and fried zucchini. Bar seating limited, lots of tables and it's cool and inviting, during a hot day.

Went to Quinn's because we thought it would be a fun place and our kids loved that its name is our last name, too. Plus, they had shirts to purchase with our names on it, etc. We ordered drinks and appetizers. One of the appetizers we ordered was spicy wings with the sauce on the side. All four of us... More

Had battered shrimp and salad, the former was okay, the latter so-so. My company had fish and chips and those were average too. The service was alright, but I didn't feel like I would want to eat at Quinn's again.

We had a group and a private room for a meal at this hotel. The food was excellent and prepared quickly. The room was quiet for our group to get to know one another (the purpose).

Having discovered Quinn's several years ago, we never go to Kona without having at least one meal at the restaurant. The fish is very fresh and cooked to perfection, and the ambience out back under the tree is very quaint.
