From the street Quinns might seem just a bar but they have great food, a nice enclosed patio out back and an AC room if you need to cool off. This is a Packers fan paradise on game day. Great spot and full of character.

This is a bar/restaurant type place. It has TV’s going and is quite noisy. The food is really good. We had the chicken fingers. Every one says all the food is good and our bus driver recommends the restaurant.

If you're looking for fish n' chips Quinn's has the best Ono F & C I've ever tasted. Big solid chunks in a light batter and lots of them. First eatery every trip to the Big Island.

Compared to the other restaurants on the Kona strip, this place doesn't look super inviting, but we had a very nice lunch. It also felt like the kind of place where you could blend in with the locals a bit--the waitresses seemed to know a...More
