Great meal

Had a wonderful last minute Valentine's meal at Huggo's. My son and his wife had a negative experience there a month or so ago so we were a bit hesitant to go back...

Appertizers arrived 5 minutes apart. Main course Ahi Tuna was great, but the catch of the day that my wife ordered came seriously undercooked and had to be sent back. It returned the same piece of now over cooked fish 10 minutes later. We tried but couldn't finish it. Did even border to order dessert and get the hell out... More

We went here on recommendation from our hotel and several travelers we had met while on our two week trip to Hawaii. Food was good and views are nice. If you're looking for a romantic evening this is a good choice but try to make your reservations after 7:30 PM to avoid the screaming babies.

the views over the bay were beautiful at night. Food and service were very good and much more reasonable than the hotel food at the more north locations but it was a drive.

OK, some people said Huggos was a little bit dated but so what. The night we went, they were very crowded but were staffed well and handled everything in a professional way as a long term restaurant should. We sat along the rail as high surf was rolling in. It added to a wonderful evening. The fish was fresh and... More

We have been regular guests for the last 3 years and had to realize that Huggo's restaurant is on a downward trend. Even with a reservationa made well in advance you feel like being unwelcome and you always have to wait in line to get a table. The floor manager seems to be trained to disappear as soon as a...

OK so it's 15 dollars, but it was by far the best mai tai in Kona, and my friends tried lots of places. This one actually had fruit juice in it as opposed to a mix. We sat in the bar waiting for a table which took about 45 minutes. We just walked up without reservations for a table for... More

We have been living in Kona for more than 2 years now and stepped in several times for dinner. It became almost tradition to spend New Years eve there but after the last experience we won't go there anymore. Too bad, the location is still extraordinary but right now that's all about it. The staff is not able to handle... More

My boyfriend and I both had excellent meals, drinks & dessert! The macadamia nut pie was fantastic! It's a must have! Our server, Island Johnny was funny, friendly & gave us great menu recommendations! Will go back without a doubt!!!

Great views - oceanside. Food was okay but not great. Hawaii prices so bring a fat wallet! Service was average.
