I love the entire menu at Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill, but the Ahi Tartare is the best ever. Friendly service and consistently good food make this one of, if not the best restaurant in Kailua-Kona.

We went to Jackie Rey's two days before we departed Kona. It was the best food and even better service we had than any other place we dined at on the Big Island. The food quality and service compares to, "Mom's Fish House" on Maui. And that is saying something. It was also reasonably priced. The best pork chops I have ever eaten! We have decided that on future trips to Kona we will dine out at Jackie Rey's at least once during our stay.

I always like to try a new dish on the menu. It usually exceeds all expectations. This variation on the gyro was no exception. High quality New York steak, tomatoes, lettuce and great feta cheese on a pita made me very happy to be having lunch at Jackie Reyes.The service was attentive without hovering. The Ono fish and chips my companion had were also crispy and flavorful.

We had the pork chops and scallops for dinner and they were great. Just wish there was a little bigger selection for dinner. Vegetables were very crunchy - we prefer them cooked a bit more than 'garden fresh'. Mashed sweet potatoes with coconut were FANTASTIC! And I usually don't eat anything with coconut - there was just enough to add 'something' to the purple Hawaiian sweet potatoes! Pork chops were juicy and tender, even for being quite thin - usually chops that thin are like shoe leather. Ice teas were a bit pricey at $3.25 a piece. But the $10 off coupon we got at our resort helped offset some of the cost.

Jackie Rey's is off the beaten path but in my opinion far surpasses what you will find on Ali'i Dr in Kona. The food was excellent, our fish was cooked perfectly. The drinks were strong from the bar. The service was exceptional - very friendly. While waiting for our table the bartender gave me a flower to wear in my hair. The casual atmosphere in the evening was festive (moderately loud) with low lighting. We were pleasantly surprised all around! We will definitely be back.
