Our favorite restaurant on the Island! Local Hangout, gathering place for all special occasions. We have spent many years of Aloha in the wonderful place including our Wedding Reception, Birthdays and when family and friends that visit us on the Big Island.

Great place to eat, nice atmosphere and great meals. The spicy stir fry dish I ordered would have fed four of us, and when I mentioned this to the waitress she cheerfully replied "It's ok, we're open until 11!". The staff were great, we had a really fun night here.

We love both the fish & chips and calamari & chips. Portions are big and prices are good for Hawaii. Service was friendly and pretty good. No view but food makes up for lack of atmosphere

Quins Big Salads with Shrimp, Crab, or Fish is outstanding. It is even better than the Pacific Northwest's famed Crab or Shrimp Louie. The service is always excellent and prices are very reasonable. This is a great place for lunch or dinner. We always take our visitors here to get the best of seafood in Kona. The "room in back"... More

We wanted to have lunch in town before returning to our cruise ship. Our car rental agency Enterprise Rent A car, suggested we try Quinn's Almost by the Sea. They said it was a local favorite and it offered outside sitting and fish like know other. So, instead of dropping us off at the pier, the agency dropped us off... More

We stopped with our family of 4, and had delicious fish & chips. The tartar sauce was also fabulous. The Clam Chowder was unconventional, but tasty.

I've been coming here the past 3 weeks on Sundays. They have several HD flat screens with lots of NFL games playing, which is a big plus for me. The food is pretty good. They open pretty early on Sundays, which gives you a chance to grab breakfast early. The Breakfast Sandwich, and The Touchdown are highly recommended. My favorite... More

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
