Hoggo's is a must stop for us everytime we are in Kona.

We have been going to Huggo's for years. The setting is wonderful. On the water, watch the sunset if your timing is right. Great Mai Tai's especially their special ones. Our server said he has been working there over 30 years. I think we have been going there nearly that long. We were there for... read more

This restaurant is on the water with absolutely stunning sunset views. And the food is pretty good too. Got the table I had requested. Wait staff attentive but not overbearing, which is at times a delicate balance. My companion had the Ono while I chose the teriyaki steak. Both were excellent. The only thing I would ask is that someone... More

A week of eating raw Poke, salads, ribs, this farm boy needed some beef. Most the time Prime Rib is not so exciting. Huggo's Grass fed Prime Rib was tasty, tender, served with mashed potato's and green beans. Just what I needed after a week of Island food. Very busy, we finally ate at the bar. There is a reason...

This place has a great view. Almost all of their tables are at the water's edge and sunset is the time to go. Food was delicious and dessert was massive! Great dinner.

We made reservations for dinner and got there about 20 minutes early. Hostess was not friendly at all and we had to wait until our reservation time to be seated, which was fine because we asked for a table next to the water. Our server was very friendly, explained the dinner features well. Drinks were kept filled and good service... More

The sunset is amazing. The music is good. The food used to be really good but sad to say the quality seems to have gone down hill and is only ok now.

Been dinning there since they opened 39/40 years I think. Every year we're on The Big Island and they are a must for us. Food and service is consistently good.

We renewed our vows after 40 years in Kona with friends and family. Afterwards we had dinner at this fabulous waterfront restaurant. The food was delicious, fresh, generous, and quick (we were a party of 8). The view was amazing. But the best part was our sweet waitress- Michelle!! She took excellent care of us. We came back for our... More

We've been coming here every year or so for many years. It's rare to see the same staff at a restaurant over that kind of a time span, but there are always familiar faces - which must say something about the place. I had a white fish on purple potatoes on coconut milk. So amazing. My husband had the macadamia... More

We had a sunset dinner here and enjoyed our meal a great deal. The food was really good and the waiter was very attentive. This is a great place for a meal because you are right on the water.
