Good value and service

This restaurant has been in Kona for sometime. Nice garden seating or AC. We found it to be of good value. Service is very good.

We ate here and were not impressed. Had the Cajun ono fish tacos - the fish was over fried so it was dried out and tasteless. The coconut shrimp was ok, but we have had better in hawaii

Quinn's Almost By The Sea is an excellent restaurant option for the Kona area. You are able to select from a quality menu but my family was hooked on the ONO Fish and Chips. We just completed a visit July 2015 and this was my family’s second visit to the Big Island and Quinn's Almost By The Sea was a... More

We went to lunch here one day after hearing about it from a coworker who had been here years before for fish & chips. I opted not to have fish & chips, but had a nice, fresh Ahi sashimi. The fish was fresh, was on a bed of shredded cabbage and was quite nice. My spouse had a crab sandwich... More

3 of us shared the fried zucchini, and the cheese quesadillas for starters, then I had the ahi fish and chips, wife had potato skins, and my sister had the veggie burger. The zucchini serving size is massive, but they are incredibly morish. The cheese quesadillas are incredibly cheesy. In fact everything had there was delicious. My only complaint could... More

It was a very hot and humid night and we had called ahead and reserved an indoor table. They were ready for us when we arrived. The service was good. We ordered a variety of things. The fish, chips and shrimp were good. The Ono was over cooked but the potatoes were very good. The burger was cooked just like... More

We always use TA to pick our restaurants and food choices in advance so usually end up with an excellent or very good recommendation. Ate at Quinn's at 11:30 a.m. soon after it opened at 11:00; it didn't get noisy until later. Hot day so stayed inside for the a/c Shared fried calamari: excellent, on a bed of sliced cabbage,...

Great prices, great food, and great service! Also open late for dinner. There is indoor or outdoor seating and a large menue that includes fresh local caught Ono and Mahi Mahi. There is a full service bar and air conditioning inside.

We usually have dinner here July 4th evening, since it is right near the shoreline from which we can view the fireworks show put on each 4th (this year's was great, by the way). In the past five years, the fish has been excellent - I usually order the mixed fried plate which contains fried ono, calamari, and shrimp, as... More
