Waitress was attentive and helpful. Music was so loud it was difficult to talk with those at our 3 place table. We asked for music to be lowered 3 times to 3 different people and it was not turned down. This made dinner uncomfortable for all of us

Food was excellent but it took FOREVER to get our food. Sushi and some fish and chips. You have to be better.

This was my second meal in a week at Kona Jacks. They were both unappetizing- there was no seasoning on the fish or the vegetables. The lunch meal was an acceptable portion however the dinner portion was very small given the price I paid. I will not recommend them

HAve been going to Kona’s for many years, mainly for lunch.....family went for Dinner and we all rally enjoyed it. Such a wide range of menu selections, however they are known for their fresh fish selections as probably the largest in the city of Indy. Our party of 5 had great Crab legs (Split open) Tilapia Minuere, Walleye Pike, Sushi (Blue roll), and Buffalo Shrimp.......stared with edamame and Great Clam Chowder......all in all great food, great service and decent price. It is no wonder Kona’s has been around for 20+ years.

Best seafood restaurant in Indianapolis in our opinion. The grouper we had was as well prepared as any we have had in Florida. Also love the sushi. Even though it was a Saturday night the service was excellent.

We loved it. We don't frequent restaurants in general recently, but when we did we always enjoyed KJ's. This visit reminded us why. Lisa did a wonderful job. And our appetizer and dinners were delicious. And they also provided beautiful roses for a special occasion with my wife. Couldn't ask for more. We'll be back. Thanks.

Very disappointing trip. Server said they didn't have broccoli Sat night ... when the special of the night clearly included broccoli. When I reminded him of it, he said he would check. Of course they had it. We had to ask for bread. The drink was terrible and we sent it back. My entree included soup or salad, and I ordered soup ... but it never came. The Seafood Fettuccine sauce was way too heavy and drowned out the taste of the seafood.

The food is expensive for what you get. It reminded me of a Red Lobster vibe but more expensive. The dishes were heavy which I was not looking for.

We were there to celebrate hubby's 44th birthday because he wanted seafood. We were by far the youngest in the restaurant. Server was awesome! Wish I remembered his name! I'm terrible with names. We ordered calamari for appetizer. It was unlike any calamari we'd ever had. It was thick cuts of calamari fried in a light tempura batter. It was so tender and delicious! We chose soup with our meal. I had clam chowder that some of the best I've ever had. Hubby ordered seafood gumbo of which he found no seafood and he wasn't sure the was sausage either. He wasn't sure what kind of soup it really was. His entree was the seafood pasta which was full of seafood and he devoured every bite. I ordered the walleye which is one of there most ordered meals. The fish was muddy tasting and the coating that was supposed to be crispy was a bit on the mushy side. The side of roasted new potatoes were lukewarm at best. The bread that comes with your meal is amazing! I think the prices are reasonable if the food is cooked well and tastes good. Hubby's was good, and it was his birthday so that was the most important!
