We live a mile away from Kona, so we stop in often. The bar has great atmosphere and great service. The menu has recently changed for the better. Great Happy Hour deals. Ask for Josh. He is a fantastic waiter

Sushi was fresh and the service was timely. Prices for the sushi rolls are average but the sushi is above average. My colleague ordered the lobster mac and cheese and raved about it. Went for lunch and would definitely go for dinner as the atmosphere seems perfect for dinner.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Ordered the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Drink came quickly with a little more than average wait for the mac and cheese but that was to be expected as I was the at about 2 PM, not a high traffic time so most of the kitchen staff was probably off or on break. Food was... More

I want to like this restaurant. I've tried to like this restaurant. However, it has just become too trying for me. In my most recent experience, I wanted something light. Not finding that, I went to the appetizer menu and ultimately selected the lettuce wraps. They were only "okay", but as I ate, I found that they were sitting in... More

A comfortable and well located seafood restaurant on the north side of Indianapolis. More seafood, a bit of sushi, meat, wide variety of food. Tends to get crowed at times so reservations are recommended. Nice place for family, friends and business. Service is quite dependable, menu covers a wide swath of food choices; suggest that most people coming here will... More

We go to Kona grill most often in warm weather because the bar area is open to the fresh air and it is a great place for drinks and appetizers.

As a chef eating out let alone dining can be a chore as errors frustrate me more than most. Normally I let mistakes roll off my back , but bad deep fry is inexcusable as some can get ill from eating oil laden fare. Worse yet being belligerent about it exasperated the situation. Why do servers and management not listen... More
