Best dinner on the island.

Great food and great service. Had the lobster and the Ono. Delicious! Great service from Island Johnny and his team of servers. We were well taken care with just the right amount of attention. We sat at a table looking directly over the water. Enjoyed the sunset, the atmosphere and the good... read more

Loved this place. Ambiance is perfect, sitting right on the water. Family-friendly to our 3 kids yet feels upscale. Don't end your dining experience without a piece of one of their ice-cream pies!

This bar/restaurant is fantastic. I've been for happy hour (which is a great deal) for food and drink, as well as, for a lovely dinner. Get the "Classic Mai Tai!" The cocktails are craft which is the only place I found in Kona that makes amazing classic and original craft cocktails. The food Is unparalleled. The Cioppino is amazing! I've... More

always a beautiful dinning experience at Huggos, Had the fresh catch special for dinner which was a baked Monchong on top of local sweet mash potatoes, also their pasta dinner pesto with the fresh catch was also to die for.And, we always finish off with the Kona Coffee mud pie.

This was our 30th anniversary dinner. After much research decided on Huggos. We were very happy with the choice. Had a perfect table to watch the sunset. Mary Ellen took excellent care of us. Every suggestion we asked her was spot on. From "small plates" to desert everything was great. We were there well over two hours and never felt... More

We chose Huggo's as our grand finale dinner, referred by a local. We steer clear of tourist trap restaurants but truly feel like Huggo's is doing everything to present a winning atmosphere with good food. We were given an EXTRAORDINARY table on the patio and at times couldn't hear each other talking over the crashing of waves (that's a good... More

We arrived for our reservation just as the most magnificent sunset was occuring. Our table on the water was a perfect place to view the setting sun. Hostess, bus people, and especially our waiter IJ aka Island Jack made the evening more special. They clearly enjoy their jobs and working with the public. Enjoyed the brussel sprout/cauliflower appetizer, thought it... More
