Sipping at sunset

Went back after 15 years, just in time for sunset. Great fruit drinks, Mai tai and wife's favorite Lava Flow. Mahi and big island fettuccini were main course. Both very well prepared with attention to the sides as well as the entree. Sunset over the pacific sets it off. One of top 2 meals that... read more

We had 7 people at dinner, two of us had lobster tails, 2 had fresh fish and 3 had prime rib. Lobster was delicious, beef was super tender and the sauces were great too. The setting being right on the ocean is so delightful hearing the waves and sunsets are fantastic. Just does not get any better. They aim to... More

Food was quite good and the teriyaki steak is highly recommended! Also, the views overlooking the bay are unbeatable! The prices seemed a bit steep, especially the drinks, but that could be forgiven. Our wait staff were very friendly but the service was so incredibly slow. We were there on a weekend night so it was very busy, but no... More

We enjoyed two spectacular dining experiences here during our most recent 10 day stay. One for my birthday celebration and a second because the first time was so good. We have been visiting Kona for 40 years and have been enjoying Huggos for all of those years. Excellent food, drinks and service; accompanied by the spectacular view make this our... More

This restaurant has probably the best view of any restaurant. It is amazing at sunset. The food is great and the staff is friendly

The food was awesome, the service even better! We had a family dinner prior to a family wedding and the staff was very accommodating to our needs and very friendly. Have eaten here before and got my wish to come back. Always save room for the Hualalai ice cream pie! Its the best!

One thing that I do not like about tripadvisor is that a 3 is called "average" and a 4 is called "very good." That is just too big of a jump. We went to Huggo's and its sister spot Huggos on the Rocks three times and we would say that it was a 3.5 star food experience and a 5... More

Very good atmosphere and food! Slightly pricey but it was very delicious. Service was great. Worth the price.

All of our food was great, but we especially loved the flat bread with the Honda Farm tomatoes. The goat cheese balanced perfectly with the awesome tasting tomatoes from Honda Farms. The Ono special was very good! Add a beautiful sunset over Kailua Bay, and we had a great dinner.

We were lucky we could walk here for dinner. Their prime rib was excellent - big piece perfectly cooked with a great flavor. I had the Teriyaki signature steak that was good but the prime rib would knock your socks off in comparison. Very professional wait staff. Ambiance is top notch for me - tiki torches - setting sun and... More
