As "local as it gets "

You need to go, small bar on you left when you enter (10 Sears max) and larger covered patio in the back. Low key but the food is very consistent , big salads, burgers and always plenty of fish.

My first time here. We asked a local for their recommendation for a good place to eat and they recommended Quinn's almost by the sea. My friend and I shared the fish and chips. But we had the pineapple slaw (delicious) as our side option. Good size portions. The fish was Ono and it's now my favorite!!' Our server was... More

Stopped here for lunch. They have a nice outside garden area in the back where we were seated. The food ranged from good to very good: - Onion Ring appetizer. Generous portion of beer battered sweet onions. Recommended. - Fresh catch sandwiches. Ono was good; the Ahi was even better. Ahi was cooked perfectly - seared on the outside and... More

Our meal was tasty and prepared well but it was cold when it got to us. There was one server working our area and I think she could have used some help. I have to assume our food sat for a period of time before being delivered thus the lack of heat.

Great service and a friendly atmosphere. Fish tacos were good. As well as the fish and chips. We would recommend it. The fish was very good.

While on vacation in Kailua-Kona, I asked our snorkeling instructor, where do the locals eat. He informed me of a few places and after a bit of a walk from our hotel we located Quinns, we were seated on the patio in the rear, and was it great, lava rock walls surrounded the place, plants growing all over. I first... More

We had some of the best fish we've ever had here! We have been a lot of places and had a lot of fish and this might be the best! Everything was perfect and our waitress was very friendly. Definitely recommend this place!

This is the third or fourth time we have eaten at Quinn's ABTS. The locals eat here and the prices are reasonable. The fish is always good. I have had their fish and chips with both ono and ahi, and they are great. This time we had the house salad with ahi and ono, respectively. the salad is tasty, big,... More

First the bad news... the owner(s) of Quinn's Almost By The Sea are obviously devout Packer Fans as indicated but the restaurant's decor. As a Seahawk fan I had to get past that before entering. Now for the good news. Quinn's offers one of the larger varieties of casual dining that I found in Kailua. After being in Kona for... More
