The way they treat their customers is rude, they accused my wife of being drunk because she has Bell Palsy & has a tendency to look like she has had too much to drink. They handled the situation poorly which ended in humiliation & embarrassment. The price you pay for the view exceeds the quality of the food, drinks &... More

We ate here twice because we liked it so much. I recommend you get reservations and ask for a table overlooking the water. The ocean breeze and sunset view can't be beat. Plus they light up the water and fish are attracted to it, so it's like viewing an oceanarium while you are eating once the sun goes down. They... More

Awesome view and food. Expensive but nice for a one time special occasion. Got a great table without a reservation because of a last minute cancellation and were not disappointed. Wonderful outside seating with the ocean right on our side.

Stopped in thinking no bookings were necessary but they are. Luckily they had a 2-top on the rail overlooking the bay as the sun was setting. We shared a bottle of Napa Valley Sauvignion Blanc while had Mahi-mahi and my daughter had Opho. Perfect food, flavour, quantity. Next door is Huggo on the Rocks which does not require reservations and... More

I went there for a burger and a beer and they delivered what i wanted. The service was ok and the location perfect. They had a cheesy band but that is what i guess is expected. I hear the more formal side is much better.

Driving to town, finding a parking place and experiencing a good meal are becoming more pain than pleasure so when out-of-town friends suggested Huggo's we were less than enthusiastic. However, we were pleasantly surprised with a great table and meal. Our waiter was nice and explained the various entree options, made special accomodations and substitutions, divided the check without being... More

We came here for my wife's birthday and it turned out to be the best meal we had on the island. We both had seafood as a ravioli or with linguine - both were delightful. The highlight was deserts - Kona coffee cheesecake and key lime pie - divine! We had a lovely table looking out over the sea, service... More

Sit and watch the sunset or the vacationers go by. Enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine. The food is good and the service is excellent. Ask for IJ. He is an outstanding waiter with lots of good suggestions about what to eat and where to go.

But it isn't cheap. We dined here twice because we liked it so much the first time. Very attentive service coupled with a great up close view of the ocean and great food makes this a top dining choice. Their seafood and salads are fresh and nicely prepared. Get a table overlooking the water - make a reservation, it will... More
