Great location with a beautiful view. Food was very good. Nice, soft, live ukulele music in the background. We did not save enough room for desert, but our waiter brought a little something that we had to try.

We have been fortunate enough to make multiple visits to the Big Island, and one of our stops has always been Huggo's. We dined there again on Aug 9, 2014. Perhaps it was the late reservation (8pm) or residual impact of Hurricane Iselle on their psyche, but this last visit was not up to par (compared to 2012 and 2010).... More

We selected Huggo's as the location for the first dinner out after arriving on the Big Island. We had requested a table on the water, and were given a fantastic location. The food was superb - from the fresh tuna and poke to the fresh catch of the day - all of it was spectacular. The service was great as... More

We stopped by Huggo's Restaurant two days ahead of time and made a reservation in advance for a special dinner, our 10th anniversary, looking forward to a memorable occasion. When we arrived at the appointed day and time, they didn't have the reservation, asked us to please wait outside until they had a table. Once seated, we reminded them about... More

Aloha, Wow! It really sounds like we dropped the ball on your special night. For that we are truly sorry. We understand we are often a place of celebration and 10 years of marriage is most defiantly a thing to celebrate. I don't want to give excuses to why we may have lost the reservation, and again apologize. I have... More

We've been to Huggo's many times, good times and bad in terms of food and service. This time it was probably the best. The staff was great and the service was great. And the food was exceptional. From ono to ahi to opah, it was superb. If you've given up on Huggo's, give it another try. And it has the... More

Great view, food, drinks and entertainment. The green flash drink was delicious. The ambiance was classy, if you want to have a more casual experience you can go to the Huggo's on the rocks right next door.

We found this place on our honeymoon but couldn't remember its name. Luckily I saw it in an island magazine and we decided to go back with our kids. The place was built in 1969 and sits out over the water. It has a fun, almost retro Hawaiian feel and is right in the heart of Kona. The food is... More

My wife & I had a sunset dinner @ Huggo's. The view is spectacular and the green flash phenominal The food was very good. We had cocktails and small plates.
