It’s easy to understand why Jackie Rey’s Ohana Grill is one of Kona’s favorite dinner spots.
Owners Angie and Paul Rey opened the restaurant in 2004 and named the establishment after their daughter, Jackie. For nearly 14 years, they have been serving up fresh seafood, steaks and pastas with home-style hospitality with island flare.
Executive Chef Stephen Wada began honing his culinary talents at the Orange County Institute of Culinary Arts at the tender age of 15. From there, he worked in fine dining across California, Hawai‘i and Florida. He recently returned to Hawai‘i Island to share his talents with Jackie Rey’s, to the delight of regular diners.
