    A little disappointed that we were assigned a table near kitchen and bathrooms when we scheduled a reservation for a table and it was obviously plenty of tables available at 5:00 pm. Our waitress was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.

    Service was perfect- friendly, helpful, attentive & timely. Cocktails were tasty and by today’s standards, affordable. We started with the calamari appetizer and I think it may be the best calamari we’ve ever had. Comes in strips not circles & no tentacles, perfectly breaded and tender and tasty with a great sauce. Clam chowder is delicious, salad of mixed greens was fresh & tasty. The warm baked bread with garlic butter is always a treat and then for entrées I had the grouper with lemon butter sauce and my wife had the fish and chips. As a Wisconsin girl she is used to Friday fish fries and she said this one definitely lived up to expectations. Great overall meal!

    We told our server we were in no hurry BUT after our oyster Rockefeller appetizer they served the salad before we were finished with the oysters and then they served our main course about 30 seconds after they served the salad. We sent the main course back and when it was returned the fish was soggy from the heat lamp. We have visited Jobs Jacks for over 30 years and we are tired of being rushed since we do not buy alcohol. We are looking for a different seafood restaurant.

    We picked this place almost at random for a last minute date night, and it did not disappoint! Appetizers & cocktails were delicious, and we had a few kinds of sushi that were also perfectly prepared. Definitely want to come back to try out other entrees on their extensive menu. Loved watching the fish tanks & our server was so nice and attentive.

    Amazing Food; top notch service not only from our waiter but other staff working the same area. Great vibes! Best Calamari we’ve had comparing it to other places in multiple states! We’ll return multiple times to try out the rest of the menu.

    We love this place. Have been coming for years. The best calamari we have ever had. Always unfailingly satisfying. Might not be the most elegant romantic place for a date night, but perfect in every other way. The service is great. Gluten free request is usually doable, and it is just as good as regular options.

    They got my order wrong the first time, but did remake it and comped me 1/2 the price. Appreciated that. The side of broccoli was terrible. Just steamed and dumped on the plate -- no seasoning, nothing. The appetizer and remade fish were delicious.

    You can’t go wrong at Kona Jack’s. The service is always top notch but never stuffy. The food is excellent. There’s something for everyone, even non-seafood eaters. (The beef filet is so tender, you can cut it with a fork.) Kona Jack’s is a family favorite.

    We ordered an appetizer and a cup of soup as starters. Our meals came out rather quickly. We had to flag someone down to ask where the "starters" were. The calamari showed up halfway through our entrees. The soup never arrived. We were billed for both: the calamari (ok--it finally arrived; some places might have comp'ed it, but whatever) and the soup (had to have the server remove it from the bill since it never arrived).

    We always love Kona Jack's. They have the best calamari in town. The portions are generous and the food is delicious. We don't usually go on Saturday nights as it does get very busy, but despite the crowd, we had a lovely family meal.

    The food at Kona Jack's is great, particularly the Walleye and the Grouper. They also make delicious Clam Chowder. Service was very good, although we had to wait 20 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. It wasn't too noisy, and the food was not over-priced.

    We reserved a table for 5 almost 2 weeks in advance. We arrived on time and were squeezed into a 4 top, with one of us sitting in the passageway. There was barely any room for our beverages or the bread. We pointed out it was not a table for 5 and their attitude was “ too bad; that’s all we have unless you want to wait a long time.” We were forced to eat on top of each other, with the person in the passageway being constantly bumped into by waiters and other diners passing by. If we were a walk up it would be one thing, but to make a reservation so far ahead and be treated like cattle is inexcusable. We heard they’re tearing down the building? Maybe that’s why the owner and management obviously don’t care about their diner’s experience any more.
