Last night's dinner was in downtown Kailua-Kona, the coastal areas being very, very touristy as usual. (Thus expect somewhat touristy prices as well.) Had appetizers, the crab-stuffed mushrooms and the cheese-spinach quesadillas. Yummy but very rich. Didn't even need to order any main course. This...More

I went at an apparently quite time/day? The 7 or 8 seats at the bar were full and the rest of the place was completely empty. The waitress was efficient but not overly friendly. Enjoyed the crab stuffed mushrooms.

Quinn's was a nice place to grab a bite to eat and a beer. You can sit inside with the air conditioning or out on the patio. Friendly staff and good food. We ate here a couple of times!
