Brought my girlfriend here preflight for her trip to the mainland, after ordering we realized everything we choose, but the clams, was deep fried. They serve HUGE portions, and make an excellent beer batter. Don't miss the shrimp. They're the size of a baby's arm!

Quinns is has the best fish in chips ever and I dare you to try them. even if you barely like fish and chips you will LOVE the Ono or Mahi Mahi Fish & Chips here.

The fish n' chips (ono) were very good & we went based upon 3 recommendations & it was right across the street from our hotel. We were seated quickly even though the line was outside the door when we first got there but once our order was taken it took 40 min from the time our waitress said, "your food... More

We ate at Quinns twice while we were in Kona. Once for dinner and then for lunch. The service was good as was the food. Prices were very reasonable compared to other places we ate at. It was a bit noisy as it is a sports bar. The atmosphere was very pleasant both times we were there!

We were flying out at 10:30 PM from Kona on a Sunday and had seen this Packer bar while walking around earlier in the week. Being from Wisconsin, we thought seeing a packer game from a Packer bar in Hawaii would be an awesome way to fill our afternoon while waiting for our flight, and we were not disappointed! The...

The meal was very good. We loved the Ono. The location was - as the name says - almost by the sea, allowing for a nice stroll on the waterfront after dinner. For almost on the oceanfront, the prices were good. The semi-outdoor seating was comfortable and fun. The service was well above average.

Told the wait would be 15 minutes and waited 1 hour. I could not tell if my food was fish or chicken (texture). Orders were not delivered as ordered, but we were not willing to wait for reorders.

From the outside Quinn's looks like a sports bar but go on through to the back and there are tables outside in a garden type setting. We chose their Ono fish and chips and on the advice of our friendly waitress ordered one order to share. Their portions are large and one order was more than enough for us. The... More

I've always said that you can't take some of the reviews because some of us are pickier than others but we've been going to Kona for over 9 years and last week we decided that we would finally go to Quinn's because of the reviews. If the fish and chips are the best you've had then you've never had good... More

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
