Quinns was recommended to us by some locals for having really good fish and chips. The first time we got it to go. We enjoyed it enough to try it again as a sit down meal for dinner. Both times the fish was delicious. For $12.95 you get Ono (wahoo) and steak fries, green salad or pineapple coleslaw salad. We sampled all three since there were 6 of us. We recommend this place for fish and chips..after all..that's all we had based on the recommendation and thought the price was fair as you get a lot of food. When we came the second time, one of us orderd the keiki (Kids) fish and chips for $7 which was plenty to eat as the serving sizes are generous.

We had a late dinner here unpin arrival I had the BLT and a salad and my husband had the fish and chips. Both entrees were fairly good and filling after a long day of travel. The prices were very reasonable. We decided to stop by for Sunday brunch so we could watch the football game at the bar and we were not disappointed. We had a great brunch with very fair prices and lots of football fans made the atmosphere great.

Quinn's was recommended by the "first mate" of the fishing boat we chartered as a place to go and watch the Super Bowl. The beer was cold and the Pu Pu platter was exceptional. The calamari was not the average rings that we are used to. It was cut from the "steak" part. Awesome calamari. The ribs on the platter were tender with a wonderful sauce. The stuffed mushrooms were flavorful and filling. The wings were breaded before fried but the sauce was tasty and was a perfect fit for the wings. I consider Quinn's to be a 5 star establishment with great "bar" food, wonderful wait staff, and ice cold beer!! Mahalo

Came here for a late night dinner (there aren't that many restaurants open past 9); it was recommended by staff at another restaurant we wanted to try but showed up 2 min after their kitchen closed).

We ordered the fish and chips (onion rings were substituted) and the fish tacos. The food quality was so so.. The onion rings weren't very crispy and the fish was a little bland. The prices were reasonable for their portion sizes. We will likely not be returning to eat unless desperate for a later night meal.

Oh and if you cannot find parking, we were told that parking at the king kam hotel across the street would be validated by them.

My husband and I are Packer owners (we each have a share) and since this was an official Packer bar we had to check it out. We ate lunch there with another couple, food variety was alright, and was sufficient for our lunch needs. The service was abrupt and not too friendly. They were semi attentive, but appeared to be a bit put out that we may have interrupted their somewhat quite day.
I am sure we will give them another shot on our next trip to the area, but hope that the service has improved by then.
