I love you Caesar Salad with salmon but the petite is too small and the large too small. How about making the petite just a little bigger

We've been going to Kona Jack's now for years. It has been one of our fav restaurants and the food is usually wonderful. This time, things just weren't quite up to par. Perhaps the kitchen had an off night. The walleye was dry and tough and didn't have that buttery taste is usually has. Typically soup or salad comes with the meal and you get two sides. I was told my salad would serve as one of my sides. So that was a change I didn't expect. My husband said his calamario salad is usually dressed in a delicious, and plentiful sauce, but he felt the sauce was on the light side, and his calamarios were tough.
We will go back for sure, as we're hoping it was just one of those nights, and we won't let one disappointing evening ruin a wonderful tradition of dining at Kona's!

Kona Jack's is a pleasant, reliable place to eat. I have been eating there since 1997 and I have never been disappointed. The food and service are reliably good.

The only negative was our server. She was very slow in getting to us for drink orders, got one wrong. Took forever for her to return to take our dinner order. Never returned to see if we wanted another drink. We weren’t offered water so for the last half of our dinner we had nothing to drink. Very unusual lack of service.

I always like Kona Jack's. We went at 11:15 this time, and it was pleasantly quiet until noon. Then the conversation level increased, but it was still a fine place to be. I have never been disappointed in more any 20 years of eating at Kona Jack's.

We never knew how tremendous fresh seafood is. Apparently we thought was fresh wasnt. The atmosphere was comfy and the service was great. We had wonderful attention, but not hovering. We chose Kona Jack's for our 36 anniversary dinner and will be back just for fun.

We think this is the best seafood restaurant in town. We both had the Walleye and it is done perfectly. We also had sushi in the form of spider rolls which were excellent. Highly recommend for seafood.

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.
