Had decent food and a nice view. Thousands of beers and ales to try so we tried a pineapple / cider ale. Really odd aftertaste, neither one of us liked. So try what you are used to but be warned about the pineapple ale. Nice outside seating on two floors but the second floor has an issue with overhead utility... More

You guys have great service and your food/drinks are perfect, but there was a very rude and intolerant manager named andy that kept reiterating the "5 foot kid limit" also that I couldnt be talking to anyone at the bar even though im 5 feet tall and five feet away so we packed up, paid and left.

Tried dinner here while in Kona. Ordered crab hush puppie appetizer .. They were frozen in the center.. Didn't expect frozen seafood while in Hawaii. Ordered the tacos one with marlin the other with mahi. They weren't horrible but didn't taste fresh either. But my mouth could've still been in shock from the nasty appetizer . Service was very friendly... More

Nice open-air layout, upstairs and downstairs bars/tables, and some views across busy Alii Drive of the ocean. A great selection of beers on tap, mostly well cared for and decently served. Lots of TV screens scattered about the place, and it can be a bit noisy and rowdy if there's a good game on. Pricey, yes, but not outlandishly so... More

Not good food, not good prices - I just don't get this place. The thing that seams the most confusing is Humpy's calling the Cuisine: "Hawaiian". This is Pub Grub a la Alaska. Cod, Salmon, Hake, King Crab and so on, far out number local fish. Including Mac/Potato Salad as a side isn't enough to qualify as serving "Hawaiian Cuisine".... More

One of the best fish taco's on island. The view from the top floor is great for people watching as well as sun setting.

We went to this bar after Huggo's on the Rocks. This place was ok - it seemed like it was happening from a distance but Huggo's was so much better. This place also had a band, the band played more current music with a dance floor inside. It didn't appear anyone wanted to be in doors at this location and... More

Good selection of food; everything tasted great and I would certainly go back without hesitation. This is a nice place to stop for an early dinner to beat the crowds; nice upstairs seating and excellent wait staff.
