Award winning Jackie Rey’s Ohana Grill has been a favorite of Kailua-Kona restaurants for locals and visitors since 2004. This casual family-owned local joint offers something for everyone, with excellent seafood, steak, pasta, and fresh salads served in a relaxed tropical atmosphere. The warm, friendly staff treats each guest as if they were family, and being ‘ohana means “family” in the Hawaiian language, Jackie Rey’s Ohana Grill lives up to their name. Bright colors, bamboo accents, and 50s-style booths convey a feeling of a Hawai‘i decades past. With two locations on the Big Island, one in Kona and the other in historic downtown Hilo, Jackie Rey’s delicious, locally inspired cuisine is within easy reach no matter which side of the island you are on.

How to Get There
Kailua-Kona restaurants location: From downtown Kona, go south on Ali‘i to Walua Road. Turn left, and follow Walua Road to the intersection of Kuakini Highway. Turn right on Kuakini Highway then an immediate left will take you into Jackie Rey’s parking lot.
Hilo restaurant location: Jackie Rey’s in Hilo is located in the heart of historic downtown. From Banyan Drive, head south on Banyan to Lihiwai Street. Turn left on Lihiwai to the first light; that will be Kamehameha Avenue, also known as Hawai‘i Belt Road, Bayfront Highway, Mamalahoa Highway, and Highway 19. We know. That’s confusing. Welcome to navigating Hawai‘i roads. Just look for the “19” and you’ll be fine. Continue on Highway 19 for 1.2 miles to the light at Wai‘anuenue Avenue. Turn left onto Wai‘anuenue then take the first right onto Kiawe Street. You’ll see Jackie Rey’s on the corner of Wai‘anuenue and Kiawe. Parking is across the road on Kiawe Street.
