We stopped here for dinner after seeing the Manta Rays and we were so happy we did. GREAT food [should have shared a fish and chips] and delightful decor. Great prices! Go!

Quinn's back patio is funky and fun (and covered). The food and the service were very good. It is extremely casual. The pork egg rolls were some of the best we have ever tasted (although a bit spicy). A fun place in downtown Kailua-Kona. We tried Ceasar Salads, Fish Tacos which were tasty and good. The chicken quesidillias were very... More

The menu is diverse, but we come for the fish dishes. Be prepared for TV football during the football season, especially the GB Packers games. The shrimp are huge, the Ono is one of the fish specialties. The service is good and prices are moderate. If fish isn't your choice, there are lots of other entrees from which to choose.... More

If you want some of the best food, go to Quinn's Almost By The Sea. No view of the ocean - thus "almost by the Sea"; however, the food is simply amazing! Try the shrimp - best I have ever had! Service was great! Traveled with seven people and everyone had something different and delicious!

It is a bar and grill but we only ate there so I can't comment on the bar. Nice garden seating area in the back away from the busy street. A little more on the menu than standard bar food. If you are interested in world travel have a look at our not for profit blog havecarryonwilltravel.com. I had a... More
