The restaurant is good, you have great variety of choices in menu, some of them spicy, others not that much. Hawaiian local food is served and other kinds of sea food. The price worth it.

We have given this 5 stars for the last several years. As usual, we got the fish sampler, with 3 different fish. They had 5 sauces, so I asked for all 5 on the side. Not one was very impressive at all. For one thing,...More

We've been here before quite a few years ago. The menu has improved greatly. Service was great and food better. Loss of one star for location, lack of a/c, which results in some annoying flies!

We normally love going here. The service is attentive, drinks are good, and the location and decor set Jackie Rey’s apart from so many of the usual Kona eateries. However this week we went twice with friends and both times those who ate the pork,...More
