We got the recommendation from a local and decided to check it out and fish & chips just sounded good and Quinn's didn't disappoint. The portions of fish were huge chunks of fish fried in a light and crispy batter just as it should be. I had the fried Mahi Mahi. Delish! I tried the clam chowder as well. It... More

This used to be one of my favorite lunch places in Kona the food can be absolutely amazing here the service is always good. But recently it has gone to where sometimes the food is phenomenal and sometimes the food is not good at all. I am just praying that they get consistent again because I used to love to... More

If you like fresh seafood, you'll enjoy Quinns, which is just off the harbor in Kona on Ali Drive. It's a comfortable place frequented by locals and has great Fish and Chips - get the Ono.

Great place to eat, looks small & pretty average from the outside but a lot nicer inside. Had to wait a while to get seated as there were 10 of us but that seems to be the norm in Hawaii. Great food, great service. Would recommend it, but try and book if you don't like to wait.

My hubby and I have lived here for 17 years now, and we always love going to Quinn's for their Ono Fish n Chips. They have other good things, such as spaghetti, tri tip steak, or their Monte Carlo sandwhich, but one of us always has to order the Ono fish n chips. It's a Kona classic!

Quinn's is a little hole in the wall place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's centrally located and easy to find. It's a casual place, not fine dining!!!! We ate out in the covered outdoor area. We enjoyed our Ono fish & chips. I upgraded to the onion rings.....worth the upgrade. Service was excellent!

We enjoy going to Quinn's because they are open a little later. We went twice on this trip, and we always share a meal because they are so big. The first night we had fish and chips. The fish was a little cold, kind of odd, but still delicious. The second visit we split a burger and fries. Awesomeness. You... More
