Great Location, But ...!

We saved Huggo's Restaurant for our last of twelve nights in Kona. The location, the view and the sunset were outstanding, but the meal was both pricey and disappointing. The service was good. We think they are overrated, but it is a priceless setting.

Great location right on the water. Service was good and friendly. The food was ok, just couldn't rate it as great. I had the teriyaki beef which was tasty but too much sauce on it which was very salty. The others had fish which was ok. For such a lovely setting it was quite noisy with their other bar right...

Wonderful table over the rocks, grant sunset view. Our server Maryellen was very attentive. Food was great, prime rib and papardelle with red shrimp were very good. They surprised us with a piece of Kona cheesecake for our anniversary (40 years) and we don't know how they found out!

Go for the view for sure. get: The sizzling shrimp is delicious! The "kiss my chocolate monkey" dessert is awesome. Entreés were good but not excellent. Fish slightly overcooked, poke a little lacking in flavor. . . But all of it was edible, and service was friendly.

Despite having a reservation we had to wait nearly 20 min to get our table which we could see from the lobby during our wait and was already empty when we arrived. Once seated our waiter took order for drinks and appetizers. Then the appetizers came brought by another waiter way before the drinks. Our waiter brought finally the drinks... More

We went to Huggo's in celebration of our anniversary. We had read some mixed reviews, but our experience was nothing short of great. We had a great table with an awesome view of the sunset. The service was really good, and the server checked with us several times to make sure nothing would be rushed. They had some great live... More

We were seated at a table nearest the ocean so when sunset occurred it afforded an exceptional view of the sunset. The service was quick and the food was good and comparably priced to other restaurants in the area. Definitely a restaurant we would return to when in the area.

This was our first trip to Kona and we were lucky to score a table after passing on the more casual option next door (huggo's at the rocks), which served burgers etc. Snagged a great table waterside and were served by Woody, who was friendly & professional. We know servings in the U.S. can be 'large', so opted for main... More

The food, the atmosphere, the service, the music; everything was perfect for a night out. I went with my family of five while it was raining (it's an outdoor restaurant) and it ruined nothing. As soon as we sat down, we realized that they had a covered area for us to sit, and the vantage point was breathtaking from every... More
