  • "You can always count on Kona Jacks for a great meal. This time no exception. The only difference I have noticed lately is that their waiters change quite a bit. They service is not quite what it use to be but the food is terrific."

  • "The service was very friendly and attentive. The food was not good. The hot bread that came was raw and doughy on the inside. My sea bass ($27) tasted like it had freezer burn, the salad leaves were wilted. It was very disappointing."

  • "We visit Kona Jacks every year when we come to Indy for the 500. I was a bit surprised that on a Friday night between 7 & 9 pm the place was never more than 1/2 full. We usually get Sushi. We should have stayed with that. Many people around us ordered Sudshi and it looked great. We had grilled fish. It was ok but flavors were not impressive and the portions were small for the $. The vegetables had absolutely no seasoning and were barely warm. The loaf of bread was so hot it could not even be cut. Our server was friendly, but very slow. We got more attention from another server in the room. We will give this place one more try for Sushi, but if the next visit isn't better it will be time to find a new tradition."

  • "I dined here for the first time last week with my parents, who live out of town, as well as my husband and seven year old daughter. It was a fantastic experience. The staff is friendly, helpful, and professional, and they served each member of our party with equal care. The many fish tanks around the restaurant are incredible, and my daughter especially enjoyed finding exotic fish, (for whom the staff have given names). Food was outstanding - some of the very best seafood in Indy! If dining on a weekend, make reservations and get there early so the noise level isn't too high."

  • "This was our first time at Kona Jack's. Our party of 4 was pleased with the whole experience. Our waitress was very friendly and made some good suggestions. We all ordered a different fish for dinner and were all satisfied. We also split some sushi rolls as an appetizer. The Dallas roll is delicious! We will go back."

  • "Six of us gathered for a birthday celebration and Kona Jack's delivered in every respect. All meals were wonderful - prepared to perfection; service was pleasant, professional, and prompt; and everyone had a terrific time. Definitely recommend."

  • "No complaints about the restaurant- the food was great and service was excellent. My only comment is that the location noted as "Downtown Indy" was a bit misleading. I was in town for a conference and staying near the RCA Dome. We were looking for a seafood place in Downtown Indianapolis, so I booked a reservation. I should have mapped it myself before getting a reservation, because it took us thirty minutes via a $35 cab ride to get there. My fault for not checking it, so beware that it is a good drive if you're staying near the heart of downtown Indy."

  • "As residents of Chicago, we are within walking distance of some of the great restaurants in the country. Having our daughter's family in Carmel was a bit of a shock for when we wanted to dine out on our own. Most of Carmel is either child-centered or bars that happen to serve food...both have their place, but to find someplace for the two of us to go has been a challenge. Kona Jack's (families w/children seem to be seated in a back room) does deliver very well prepared seafood in a kitchy beachside setting. Service is very good and Lisa was great after a seating snafu. We've had fish, lobster and salmon and the dishes are always perfectly prepared, requests are accomodated, and without pretension. Just don't go without a reservation."

  • "Crusted grouper is a must and so are the pasta and seafood entrees."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The walleye here is to die for… tender and delicious. My only complaint is with the side dishes. I had the rice pilaf which was very bland. It would take so little to make it more interesting and flavorful. The green beans were Ok, but not great. It is worth a trip for the fish. Service was professional and friendly."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Family outing during the week. We started with the calamari, which was excellent - definitely recommend it. The chowder is always good and something I get every time. My wife had shrimp linguini and I had the Pasta Rustica, which has shrimp and scallops. The unusual part is that the shrimp in both dishes were actually a bit tough from being overcooked but the scallops in my dish were perfect. The server was extremely nice and accommodating as well."

  • "We made reservations on a Monday night for my Wife's birthday. We were seated, given water and never saw the waitress again. She did walk by after 10 or so minutes and said she would be right back. She never came. We got up and left after 25 minutes of waiting. The one good thing out of this was I received a call from a manager 2 days later appologizing. They got my number off our reservation and took the time to follow up. What they lack in waitress service they seem to try and make up with customer service follow up. We'll give them a second chance only because of the follow up call by the manager who took the effort to track us down and apologize. Hope the second trip goes better than the first."
