It took 30 minutes to get our drinks after reminding the server at least twice. My wife's mahi mahi was so overcooked it was not edible. The server asked her after everyone was finished if she wanted to order something else. The gumbo had no flavor similar to Campbell's condensed vegetable soup. The bread was good but not enough butter with it. My grouper sandwich was good but $20 for a grouper sandwich with 10 steak fries is a bit much. I will not be back.

WE went with friends on 1/30 for dinner and it was so good! The calamari is the best I have ever had anywhere - on the coasts even! We all had different fish and it was all very good! It took a bit for the entree to come but could just be the service issues everyone has lately. Great value and felt safe with respect to Covid even though we are all vaccinated etc.

Our table of three was celebrating my birthday and Sean was our wonderful, witty, attentive server. So very happy we got him. When making reservation, I requested a booth, which we got. I adore daddy jack and Kona Jack for any weekday or weekend dinner. special occasion or not!

We love Kona Jacks. This time we had a rough experience. It took quite a bit longer to get our orders this time, and the waiter even stopped by to say they would be out soon, they were short staffed in the kitchen. We were in no rush, so it was no big deal. The waiter finally brought our food, and to my shock the tuna looked different. I commented that this is not how it normally looks and explained what I normally had. The waiter said “well I didn’t think that was what you wanted so I changed it.” He offered to take it to the back and have them add the things he had removed and put it back on the grill. I explained you don’t want to put the tuna back on the grill because then it would be overcooked. Tuna is best pretty rare (in my opinion). Once I took a bite I realized it was already slightly overcooked. They also did not bring my peanut sauce, so he went back to get it and that made the tuna palatable. Otherwise I would not of eaten it. With the kitchen staff already being short staffed and I was not comfortable asking for them to do it again because I didn’t know how long it would be before I got a new one. Then when the waiter came back and we asked for boxes he stood next to me and said can I box that up for you? It will be less messy. And maybe this is petty, but I felt like I had just been insulted. I cannot put food in a box without making a mess? Normally, we love Kona Jacks and have never had bad food or bad service, but why would you assume you know what the customer wants and just change it? Why would you change something and not tell the customer or ask them?

I mistakenly thought this was a little more upscale than it was. This is more like a Florida themed bar with the tables. The food was good, but this is not really for anything other than jeans/shorts and a T. It’s in a strip mall so when we pulled up, I knew we were crazy over dressed. Clearly my fault for not paying attention, but the ratings were high enough that I thought it was a good option. Again, the food was good the service was so so.

Another Fantastic meal at Kona Jacks! Love the giant calamari. No one else makes it like this, served over a refreshing Asian slaw. Fish entrees were cooked and seasoned perfectly. We had the Bronzino special and the Ahi Tuna. Not a better seafood restaurant from downtown to the Northside. Ask for Kane (not sure if I spelled it right). He is an amazing server. Best restaurant experience we’ve had this year!

First I would like to say we have ate here several times and always had a great dinner with family and friends.
Unfortunately this night they couldn’t get my wife’s filet cooked at medium. Filet was served rare and sent back, brought back with in a minute and still rare, waitress was great and took it back but this time when they brought it back it was like eating some beef jerky. Food for the other four people was great!
Would’ve thought a manager might stop by to apologize for the experience that evening but maybe he or she was too busy.

A table was ready when we arrived. We ordered drinks and oysters. The seafood gumbo was excellent. We ordered seafood. My ono and rice pilaf were very dry. My girlfriend ordered a sushi plate that she loved so all in all it was a break even dinner experience. However we love Kona Jacks and always return.

Our server Jean was awesome! The special for the night of Mahi-mahi with the sweet potato coating and topped with maple syrup was spectacular! Please add this to your regular menu. Everyone’s food was good. The restaurant was extremely busy however two other staff members kept checking with us to assist Jean.

Although we ate at a busy time the ambiance was quiet. I ordered the oysters on the half shell and they were delicious and fresh. Can’t wait to go back and order more. My entree was poached salmon which was tender and flavorful. I was impressed by their homemade bread which was hot out of the oven and served with macadamia nut butter. The whole meal was truly scrumptious.
