“great folks”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Staff was helpful and accommodating. We had made a reservation the day before. We went on an adventure on the other side of the island and at some point in the early evening realized we were not going to make it back in time - gave a call they set us up with a later time, even though [we later saw] they were obviously booked for the evening. Oh, and the mai tais and food were good too!

“Outstanding - again”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Jackie Rey's does not have an ocean view. Having said that, everything about the place is seriously outstanding. It is close to home, which makes it easy. But the food and service are always top notch. I ordered the Chef special: Sesame crusted Mahi with Molokai purple mashed potatoes and a pomegranate sauce. It was so good, i wanted to lick the plate. The fish was cooked to perfection, the potatoes were excellent and the sauce was one-of-a-kind amazing. JR's never disappoints and is often yet another 'best-ever' meal. Service was not as excellent as usual, but was not bad by any means.

“Friendliest Aloha Service”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Loved how friendly and welcoming the servers were. We always come here for at least one fabulous meal while staying in Kona! The service was very good. The scallops were beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The sesame crusted mahi mahi was tender and delicious. I loved the various options for the fresh catch if the day. Expensive $25-$30 for main course, but check their website for a $10 off coupon for out of state visitors.

“Close to Perfect”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

If only Jackie Rey's had a view, it would be perfect. Make sure you attend their daily happy hour for half priced drinks and pupus. Be careful, the portions are huge. The wait staff is very friendly and personable. The lilikoi martinis are fantastic.
