Great sushi..overall good experience. Wanted to listen to music at Apres-Jacks after dinner, but it was packed. I'd suggest getting there early!

Always good food and service. Marty and Jason were working the Sushi Bar. They both kept an eye on us and we never needed to ask for anything. The Calamari is as good as anywhere I have ever had. We had sushi for dinner and it was beautiful and delicious. I will be back often!

What a great meal! Clam chowder was excellent. Steaks, lobster tails and grouper were all perfectly cooked and delicious and the warm bread was amazing. Loved the atmosphere with the fish market and the aquariums. Will definitely go back!

I dine here often. I usually have the Fresh Fish Special or Pasta Rustica a favorite. This evening I had Pasta Rustica and I must say this was the very BEST version I have ever had. It was outstanding. The sauce had excellent flavor, and covered the Pasta completely, the seafood was cooked perfectly. As always the salad was fresh and crisp, and the bread warm, crisp and fresh. My spouse enjoyed his Fish and Chips which is another of our favorites. The breading is tasty as well as not overpowering the flavor of the fish. Our service was excellent, thanks to Lisa. I credited my Pasta Rustica dish to Marcell.

We love this place and had one of our favorite servers, Lisa. Wife always gets the fish and chips (sweet potato fries). Good selection of steaks, seafood and sushi. The specials are usually very good as well. Generally speaking Kona Jacks has an excellent wait staff. Always great and attentive. We come here at least twice a month and eat out about 8-10 times a month.

We were seated right away, though our table was pretty small for a party of four. Our appetizers, Black & Blue Nachos and Cajun Scallops, were very tasty. Service was attentive but not overbearing. All of our entrees were delicious! We'll definitely be back!

We really wanted to like this restaurant. Their chowder was outstanding. But the entrees were so-so. The sea bass was over sauced, the crunchy grouper was just ok. Portions are big and prices are a great value. But as a much as we prefer to eat local over chains, Bonefish Grill is much better on food and atmosphere. Apres Jacks music room is a treat, but has limited seating, so get there early.

Our server was unable to keep up with her work load. We had to go to the bar to get our own drinks after numerous attempts to flag her down. Our food came out cold. The broccoli was very undercooked. The fries seemed old. We are frequent guests of Kona Jacks and normally enjoy ourselves, but this was a bad experience.

The staff were great. We had a special need because one member of our party had a broken leg. They adjusted immediately and were very nice. The only negative was my salad was very tired. It looked like it had been prepped 3 days earlier. Not fit to eat. Quality control left a bit to be desired. Otherwise, everything was good.

One of our favorite stops on our way to Bloomington. Fish is fresh and prepared well. The vegetable dish that comes with the pop stickers is amazing. So far we have had the scallops, shrimp, sushi, potstickers and sea bass;; all wonderful in flavor and freshness.

I used to really like the food at Kona Jacks. The last two times however, you can tell the quality of their food has really deteriorated. This place has been around for well over 16 years, and they’ve had pretty much the same menu, which was fine when it was good. I had the salmon cashew stir fry, and I couldn’t eat most of the salmon because it was raw and mushy. The flavor of this dish used to be really tasty, but now it is very bland. The soy ginger salad dressing is still great, but the caliber of the lettuce is very poor - the white part of Iceburg. I was going to order sushi, and I wish I had. We were al disappointed in our meals. It’s a shame because I like to support locally owned restaurants, but we won’t be going back.

One of our favorite places to get sushi along with other options; pasta, salads, sandwiches or small plates. As usual the food was good but service was lacking. It was our first time sitting outside so maybe that's why. We had to help ourselves to the cart for our own plates and to refil our water once. Pretty disappointed with the service this time but usually it's great.
