Staying at the King Kemehameha, we walked to several waterfront restaurants, then discovered Quinn's right across the street after a recommendation. "Almost by the sea" as they are titled, but wonderful fish and chips! Delicious beer battered Mahi and Ono were what we had, along with their very tasty onion rings (and I'm picky about those ). We will definitely return and want to try their calamari bites which looked amazing! We left very full and very satisfied. Thankfully we were on "Hawaii time" as the waitress was working many tables, so extremely busy (but very kind).

I have eaten at Quinn's on several occasions and have never been disappointed. I do live here in Kailua Kona and have been to most of the restaurants at one time or another. This one is my favorite for consistently great food. My personal favorite is the calamari and chips. Most everyone will tell you that Quinn's has the best fish and chips in town and I cannot argue with that either. The service has always been excellent and the staff and owners are warm and friendly.

We went here a few nights ago. I had the fish tacos and they were totally amazing. Beautifully grilled strips of fish, with lettuce and guacamole and a wonderful salsa. The pineapple slaw was also excellent. Tonight I had the fish n chips. The Ono was fresh
and plentiful. But I found the batter lacking in flavor although it was light and perfectly cooked. Both meals were plentiful and reasonably priced. The service both times was fine.

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...
