I didn't see this restaurant on the top places to eat and I don't know why. We happened here because we just wanted a place to enjoy a brew and get some food. It was excellent food. Great Hawaiian food, Barbecue flavors were wonderful. The waitress was very nice and made lunch enjoyable with her positive attitude.

We've been to the islands many times. One of the best fish tacos I've had. I ordered two but could easily been done at one. They are huge!!

The food was good but not great; but the service left something to be desired. It took a long time to have lunch.

The crab legs are amazing! They barely fit on the platter. Add a couple IPA craft beers to the meal as you watched the ocean and street traffic---it's a good place to talk and watch. The atmosphere is relaxed and the waiter coaches just enough. We definitely will come back. Humpy's is a good Hawaii / Alaska connection, with restaurant... More

My first taste of an American hamburger and I was blown away at how delicious it was. Now I know why everyone raves about burgers. The meat was just delicious! I think that it was the best burger I had while in Hawaii.

After a long day of surfing, this was a nice treat. Had the Ono fish tacos. You can choose between baja or grilled. Grilled was waaaay better. My friends got the filet and shrimp dish and they loved it. Cook to perfection and it didn't need any sauce. A way a steak is meant to be. Oh and the Mai... More

I was skeptical of this place at first because it seemed "touristy", but we ended up being impressed and came back again! They have a great beer selection, and they have a fish sandwich that is one of the very best I've ever had. The location is terrific (can sit on either the top or bottom floor balconies), and they...

We had bad, slow service on the night we went to Humpy's Big Island Alehouse. Had the waitress not had a friendly , happy attitude I would have marked her down more. Note to waiters and waitresses: IF YOU CANT REMEMBER THE ORDER CORRECTLY WRITE IT DOWN! Way too many mistakes with the order from the wrong soda to the... More

Our first time at Humpy's was in 2013 and me and my girlfriend were so pleased with the fish tacos that I just had to take a picture and share the experience with all of our friends and family. We made another visit there and were extremely pleased with the other dishes we ordered. The view was excellent and we... More

Humpy's use to be the Hard Rock. There food was good and reasonably priced. You got a good size portion and the service was good. If you are dining as a couple you can sit on the balcony and watch people walk down the main street in Kona. Great atmosphere.
