We consistently have great food at Kona Jack's. We have enjoyed this restaurant for years and will continue doing so in the future. Service and food are both excellent!!

Server rushed us in several ways and ignored many details of decent service. Tables already too close together, made worse by management cramming a large walk-in party into a too-small space. Food tasty as always.

This is only the second time I’ve eaten here in 20 years. It was spectacular. I wonder why it took so long to return

This is one of my go to places for businesses lunches. The food is always great and the service is prompt and professional. One of the last places offering an oyster po-boy.

Food was great. I had cobia with new potatoes and husband had salmon stir fry. All was prepared nicely and served hot. Salads were good and bread served with the salads was excellent. Drinks were overpriced, but good. Hostess was a bit disorganized and not overly friendly. Server was abrupt, but efficient. Atmosphere was loud and tables were close together. Cold temperatures near the windows.

We decided to spend valentine's day here because we had been there a few times, however this return trip was awful. We had reservation but still had to wait to be seated. We were taken to an inner room and all the way to the back. the seat against the wall had an indent that after my appetizer i had to plead with my husband to switch seats because it was very uncomfortable and was causing back pain. This also happened to a couple seating next to us. The calamari which we usually get was terrible, hard and a peak into how the rest of the evening was going to go. The steak was not to the temperature we requested and it made my husband sick that night. The quality of the steak was poor. The service was sub par, we waited quite a while for initial contact with our server who could not be found when we needed salt and pepper which was absent from our table. Overall very disappointing experience.

Kona has been consistently our go to place for seafood in Indiana.
Lots of lunch options. Plus sushi for a lighter fare.

Kona is one of our go to restaurants. Fish is almost as good as being on the coast. Works double as we were able to buy our fish from the fish counter to take home and have a great dinner & nice wine

Good food and a nice selection of oysters. As with most restaurants in the Midwest, it's difficult to keep a full array of menu items (e.g. lobster). The fish and shellfish that is available is fresh and prepared by people who both know and share their love of seafood.

The atmosphere is family-oriented, a bit noisy but friendly. Servings are ample and the restaurant is a very good value in my opinion. We recommend it without hesitation.

Wait staff always cheerful, sushi is outstanding and the menu options are varied and never disappoint. Walleye is delicious, can’t beat the chowder or the gumbo. Great value!

I was actually seated in Daddy Jack's as I came to hear the band. It was my first time in either location and I will definitely go back. I was disappointed in the salad and ranch dressing - salad was all iceberg lettuce and the dressing was thin and flavorless; blue cheese was much better!

Always good. The clam Chowder has to be the best in Indy. All four of us ordered different items, none of use were disappointed. Service was great as well. We schedule another visit soon.

Food was very good. However, they had no draft beer (machine broken) and they were out of mashed potatoes which were part of the special. Seemed they were not prepared and offered no alternatives to these two issues.

We have dined at Kona Jack’s on New Years Eve for the last 10 years, but I was somewhat disappointed. Our server was older and appeared to be easily frustrated. We waited over 20 minutes for our salads after ordering. At 8:00, they had already run out of mashed potatoes for their evening specials. The pilaf was way over seasoned, to the point that I chose not to eat it.
As for atmosphere, they are way overdue for a remodel, including chairs that don’t wobble.

Great early evening dinner on the way downtown to the Yuletide celebration. Food was excellent and Marty, our server, was outstanding. Always a great place to visit.
