We've been to Quinn's twice on this trip to the Big Island (we come every year), and had great meals both times. The first time we shared Ono fish and chips and the. Kalbi ribs starter. Both were wonderful. On our next trip, my wife had the Ono dinner (broiled), and I had the dinner-size Kalbi short ribs. Both were... More

The captain of our fishing trip told us about Quinn's and we were very happy he did. Ono was the fish of the day and it was delicious in tacos and in fish n chips. Great, fast service and we all loved our food.

Quinns is good value for money - we have never been disappointed with our food choices however serving sizes are huge (not such a bad thing). Wait staff are great especially as it is so busy. Your choice inside or outside dining - prices excellent.

Been coming to Big Island for 10+ years and never made it to Quinns - our bad.

We shared the two and had leftovers. Good beer... More

If you are in Hawaii and are a Packer fan, then this is the place to go...especially on game day. Great food, drinks. and a festive atmosphere for the Green and Gold! Bring your favorite cheesehead!

I'm going to be honest, this place is just ok. The people are very friendly. We sat in the bar area near the fun little aquarium. Lovely hostess and waitress. Frankly, the restaurant is a little dirty. The table was questionable as were the restrooms. We had fish and chips. They were ok. Nothing to write home about and the... More

We always go back to eat here once or twice each time we come to the Big Island. Great meals and service. Just love the Deluxe Sampler and the Captain's Platter is great if you have a good appetite.

We enjoyed a hearty dinner here as we had heard about Quinn's from several people. When you arrive there are two options. A sports bar seating if you want to to see TV screens and want more of a bar atmosphere. Outback there is a nice covered patio which is quieter if you prefer. They have a selection of standard...

We enjoyed eating breakfast here over the Holiday's and watching the Packer Game playing on the pub's TV's. The personable owner (a Green Bay Packer Fan originally from Wisconsin) has done a nice job decorating the pub with sports paraphernalia. She greets everyone that enters through the door and enthusiastically makes sure everyone is having a good time. We purchased... More

We stopped in at Quinn's for dinner. The restaurant in the back is a wonderful oasis. We had a tuna sandwich and a steak sandwich. Both were delicious, well prepared and reasonably priced. Excellent experience!
