The food was good, a small place off the street. We had the Ono fish and chips and the Ahi with wasabi sauce. Ono is very dense - almost like chicken. It was VERY filling. You might want to share. The service was decent. No complaints. I could smell garbage but I have a sensitive nose...

Had lunch here. We split the fish and chips. The order had 5 good size pieces of fish. You can choose which of 3 varieties of fish you want, the Ono was terrific. The beer was cold a tropical drink was tasty. I look forward to a return visit. They claim to be the southern most Packer bar in the... More

We were recommended to this little spot close to our hotel. I ordered a salad with grilled fish. That is where the so so comes into play. If you like the dense tough part of bagged ceasar salad mix you might love it. I do not. The croutons were from a bag and not too good but the blackened fish... More

Great food, great location, great service. You can always count on Quinn's being one of the best meals you will get on the Big Island. It has been a must stop for my wife and friends whenever we visit Kona.

We are from Wisconsin and so is the owner. Great place to go if you are a Packer fan. Food is great! Difficult to find a parking spot if they are busy. Many locals hang out there.

We were told this was a great place so maybe we hit it on a bad night. The Ono was overcooked and pretty well tasteless. I did really like their mashed potatoes and my drink was good. Our server seemed to be more or less going through the motions. She seemed sort of bored with the whole thing. Never even... More

Quinn's Almost by the Sea doesn't have a view, but it does have great food! We stopped for lunch and had the fish sandwich and fish tacos, both were outstanding! We'll be back.

This is the place for you. We went for lunch yesterday. Now in my January visit, I had the ono sandwich, and it was as usual delicious. But yesterday I got 5 chunks of ono in what they call Fish and Chips, and OMG! Cooked perfectly, again, as usual. I've been coming here for years and years and have never... More

Not bad, but do yourself a huge favor and go a few doors down to Splasher's - the food is so much better, only $1-2 dollars more per entree, partial views, better atmosphere, and no flies.
