“Consistently Great Year After Year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013 via mobile

We always dine at Jackie Rey's when we are on the Big Island and they unfailingly deliver on great service and beautifully presented delicious offerings. The owner is often the first employee welcoming the guests and taking them to their table; the vibe that enhances the experience is that every employee appreciates your patronage and is glad you are there. This time I had the Caesar salad, Seafood Trio (an absolutely incredible crab cake along with catch of the day and shrimp kabob) and shared a chocolate mousse cake that was delightful.

“Yum! lots of choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Great place for dinner. Huge variety of food. Everything was delicious. We were greeted and seated right away, even on a Friday night! Their pupus were the best - on our next visit we plan to load up on the pupus and do dinner family style. Waitress was efficient, nice, and able to give good recommendations. The only reason we're giving 4 stars is that they were NOT good about refilling the water and my husband is a stickler about that.

“Always a Great Place to Eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill is one of my "go to" restaurants in Kona. I live in Kona and have watched Jackie Rey's grow over the years. With Jackie Rey's, I can consistently find fresh, delicious food, pleasant wait staff, and some of the most amazing, mouth-watering dishes on the Big Island. Paul and his staff have the "right stuff". They know how to prepare fabulous food, present it in a beautiful way, and back up your service needs with caring, efficient staff. On top of that, Jackie Rey's gives back to the community with their annual Thanksgiving feast for the hungry. They bring the community together to help each other. That takes a huge heart and that is Jackie Rey's heart!
You will not be disappointed if you choose Jackie Rey's for your dining pleasure! Bon Appetit and Aloha nui loa!

“Wonderful Service & Incredible Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Jackie Rey's is an unassuming place at a fairly busy intersection. After going, we wanted to go back every night. The food was fantastic. The prices were right and the Mai Tais were delish! Our server was friendly and helpful. We will be sure to go back next time we're in beautiful Kona!

“Really Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

We read the TripAdvisor reviews and choose this place as our "special" dinner for our week in Kona. It was outstanding. The service from Clara was excellent; attentive and very friendly. The fresh catch (mahi) was delicious; my wife had the seafood combo with Ahi; also very good. Even the arugula salad was special. The dinner could not have been better!
