Conveniently close to the hotel

A tad more expensive for Canadian travelers but that pretty much applies any where because of the current exchange rate.

My wife and I stopped here for dinner. We both had their fish and chips, which we both though were excellent. We did not find the fish or the fries to be greasy. The prices are quite reasonable here. Quinn’s was within walking distance of our hotel, The Royal Kona.

Nothing stays the same. We always loved their fish and chips. Not sure what happened but it was just average. The Ono was very dense, the batter too thick in several places on the fried fish pieces. The pineapple slaw was without much dressing. So disappointed. We will try it again at another time to see if the good chef... More

ate here on Valentine's Day while we waited for a flight, got in on a very busy night t he food was great and service was as well. Priced well for Hawaii and you should try the calamari. We would definitely go back. Nice little place not fancy but fun

It felt like one of those nights for Quinn's when nothing really falls into place. This place was recommended by fellow diners that we met at a restaurant next door (Splasher's) to Quinn's. They were emphatic that the food quality and prices will win anybody over. On first appearances this seems very much like a locals eatery. It seems all... More

I'm surprised by any negative reviews. My family and I love this place and we frequently dine here ....and bring others along too. The atmosphere is beachy and laid back. The staff is friendly and the food is good. We've had the quesadillas, chicken sandwich, monte cristo but my favorite is the fresh catch of the day. I love walking... More

we had fish and chips here and must say I've had a lot better. The fish was a little chewy and not very tasty. The chips were ok. The place was quite busy and we ended up sitting on a back patio that was basically backing onto a lane way but was almost totally enclosed. There is no view from... More

Went b/c of TA reviews. Stood at the hostess desk for 15'. No one ever came. Worse than that were the same three waitresses that blasted past us repeatedly and totally ignored us. Not even a " she'll be with you shortly..." Nothing/nada/ zilch. When we finally asked one of the sprinters if there was a hostess-she totally blew us... More
