This is a great place, particularly for cocktails. We'd initially struggled to find a high-quality bar in Kailua, with most joints offering a very limited range of drinks – 101 Mai Tais, margarita happy hours, that sort of thing. Cheap and cheerful but nothing special. Our interest in Huggo's was piqued when we looked at the menu online – promising... More

We loved this place; easily the best restaurant in town. The teryaki steak was amazing. Loved the sizzling shrimp. Terrific service, fabulous atmosphere. Great view. Drinks were good too. Not cheap at all, but you get what you pay for.

I enjoyed the sunset view, the excellent drinks and my food. My husband and my MIL ordered the Ahi rare and got well done... they sent it back and the cook got it right. Who orders Ahi well done?? My mother ordered fresh fish but thought the sauce was just ok. I ordered an arugula salad with the ribs appetizer,... More

Had dinner here with several friends from work. We decided just to stick to ordering several small plates. They have a good wine selection and we ordered two different bottles of great California wines. We had the sizzling shrimp, poki tower, crab tower, fritto misto and a flat bread for our meal. I would skip the flat bread next time,... More

7 of us dined here the other night. Great ambiance, and we were seated closer to their sister restaurant on the deck so we got to hear the live music while we dined. Drinks were good. Service was good. My swordfish special with a panko breaded swordfish, blue cheese sauce, and red pepper bacon topping was fantastic, perfectly cooked. Ono... More

We had our last dinner in Kona at Huggo's on Sunday night and it was fantastic! The location was awesome and we really enjoyed watching the sunset from our oceanside table. We started out with great drinks and delicious appetizers- go for the sizzling shrimp! . Our waiter was amazing as was his female counterpart, #huggos : ) I was... More

We enjoyed a night out at Huggo's Restaurant, sampling some of the tasty big island beef. Seated by the sea and watching the sun set, we enjoyed the ambience, the pleasant and professional service and sensational meals! The outside of the restaurant is not particularly inviting and it is right off the main street through the downtown - but we... More

This place has great atmosphere for sure and great service. Our abalone appetizer was awesome but the entrees were average. We would go back.

Huggo's is not huggo's on the rocks which is what we were looking for. However they are right next door to each other. I had the perfect Prime rib here and my company has the fresh catch and mahi mahi. They both loved their meals. Drinks were great and the service was impeccable. Our waitress was so fully of energy... More

We were introduced to Huggos years ago on a visit to Kona and it is now our "must go several times" each time we go to Kona. Food is fabulous, setting is on the ocean......no, its not cheap tourist food, its great dining. Owner is a wonderful man and turned us on to the best whale trip last visit.
