WE have been going to Kona Jack's for years. WE think their food is the best and it is our go-to restaurant when we want fish.

There were four of us, and each of us liked our entree (fish selections) very much. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful in describing entrees and drinks available. We enjoyed the whole experience a lot. Thank you for a nice evening. We will return!!

The king crab legs were so good. Their menu has a great variety and I even heard that on Friday evenings sometimes they might have lake perch which is a real treat.

The food was very good and the service was fine. It was very noisy and hard to converse. Given that we had, and twice confirmed, our reservations, I think we could have been given a better location instead of right by the kitchen.

Haven't been there for a while and had a delicious meal. I had grouper and my husband had the walleye. Both were very good and thought the service was just right. Will definitely be back soon.

First, I must apologize to the waiter, Michael, for leaving a tip that was $10 less than it should have been. I am used to buying for 2 so somehow the amount I wrote for a party of 4 did not look wrong. In reality the waiter did an outstanding job describing all the specials and the options for preparations of various fish. He was overall the most competent server I've experienced in months and thus I regret the low tip. I hope Kona does everything possible to retain such a valuable employee.

Regarding the food the Mahi-mahi and the Ono were both excellent. My son also recommends the bugs and pasta if you want a spicy Cajun dish. I hope to return to Kona soon.

Great food all the time after 30 years dining there.

We have brought many people here...they want to come back saying ...best fish ever.


If you are a traveler and in the area, highly recommend this restaurant or sister restaurant adjacent, Daddy Jack’s.

Service was fast. Fried shrimp were large & cocktail sauce delicious. I ordered the clam chowder & veggies as my sides & the soup was thick & wonderful & the broccoli/carrots yummy too. Portions were large. Refills arrived without asking. Overall a nice meal, good prices & delicious.

Fried calamari was cut in long think pieces and served over a cole slaw mix which was a great start to the evening, the clam chowder is yummy, the Red Grouper prepared in lemon-pepper Parmesan breadcrumbs was pan seared on the bottom to a crispy perfection, and service was top notch. This is one of my regular places and will be back again.

One of our favorite places as we eat here several times a month. Darrell was our service professional and he does an outstanding job. He is definitely one of our favorites. Darrell is always very attentive, professional and just outstanding. As usual we had the fish and chips and as always it was outstanding. We have never had a bad experience at Kona Jack’s. Food and service is always outstanding. This is our go to place .

Best Polynesian-type sushi around. Do NOT expect traditional Japanese sushi.
Great, light, fun atmosphere. Marty is the best server around. Works hard, engaging, loves talking to everyone!

I have to say that Kona Jack's is becoming a bit dated - it's kept clean and the food is usually good. We have gone there for years for the sushi but this last trip the food (spicy tuna rolls) was kind of mediocre. The calamari appetizer was especially poor - it looked and tasted like it came from the freezer section at Kroger. My filet mignon was very good if a bit salty and cooked to perfection.

I'd highly recommend management consider some updates to the interior. Much of the tables and chairs appear to be well worn.

This is and has been a good restaurant. However, the fish special this night was marketed as wild Alaskan King salmon. I’ve had it several times, also known as Chinook, or Red salmon. It has a dark red flesh color and a very strong flavor. What was served was very light pink with little or no flavor. It was almost certainly farm raised. It was definitely not Wild Alaskan King. Intentional or not, it should not have happened.

In our estimation the best seafood in Central Indiana. Food great, service good. The only thing on the menu needing an upgrade is the house side salad. Kona Jack’s should upgrade from using iceberg lettuce to healthier dark green/dark red lettuce.

Disappointed with our meals...grilled fish was tasteless and fried fish was greasy. Salads were made with limip iceberg lettuce. Green beans were obviously not fresh when stir fried (some were brownish). However, brrad/butter was good.

Expensive for what we received.
