“Great food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We stopped at this restaurant for dinner as it was recommended by a few people that live in Kailua-Kona. It was super convenient for us as it was right across the street from the hotel we stayed at, Courtyard Marriott King Kamehameha. Everything we ordered was delicious! We tried the fish sandwich, which was Ono and it tasted amazing! I loved how the fish wasn't fried or cooked in any batter. Huge portions, we were definitely not able to finish everything but depending on what it is, it could be great left-overs if you have a fridge in your hotel room, or if your staying at a condo. The service was wonderful, very friendly staff all around. Great value! Definitely try if in the area!

“Two times a winner...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We ate a Quinn's many years ago on a local's recommendation for great fish and chips. They were very good. So, this trip we gave it another try. Once again, the fish and chips were so good. I also had a couple of cocktails in giant plastic tumblers that were unpretentious and awesome. No stupid umbrellas! The service was outstanding. Great mix on locals and tourists alike.

“Loved by locals & us.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Went to Quinn's by recommendation of clerk at car rental counter. I always ask the locals for their favorite restaurant. He was right. Best Fish {ono} & Chips around. Large portions, good service. Have a very nice patio. Great value.

“Great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

You must try their ONO fish and chips (sub for the onion rings!)...really the best. St. Patrick's evening was a busy and happy place! Their shaded patio in the back was a little hidden oasis with fantastic food.
