Unbeatable Location

In general, I find the restaurants in and around Kona disappointing. For a region so dominated by tourism, service here is often lackluster (or nonexistent). As such, we entered Huggo's on the Rocks with low expectations. The short story is that we would 100% come here again. Service was quite... read more

He felt comfortable eatin alone at the bar . He liked it so well he made dinner reservations at Huggos Restaurant for our... More

Wonderful beach bar and restaurant with music, great sunset views, delicious food, mai tais and cocktails (recommend Gilligan's Girl). We came a few nights during our stay in the Kona area.

This place looked like it might be like Kimo's in Lahina. Not even close. View decent, beer not cold, and food nearly inedible. As I am writing this I pray for no food poisoning.

What a great place to have lunch after a big morning hike! The tables and chairs are set in sand overlooking the bay. We had a lovely view of paddle boarders and spinner dolphins while we ate. The food was good and the beer was cold...what else can I say?

This a a sunny (but umbrella covered) pub on the volcanic rocks just above the surf. Sit at a table by the ocean and kick off your sandles and put your toes in the sand. Food and drinks were all good and reasonably priced. More so if you were there for happy hour which started at 3pm. We went here... More

We happened in here on St. Patrick's Day and had a blast. The happy hour was great - try the sliders-yummy. Green beer was fun and cold. Our server was attentive and friendly. It is a fun atmosphere with live music.

We had a quick drink and snack of Ahi Poke. Very tasty and a great atmosphere. Going back Friday night for a nice dinner at Huggo's.

The perfect outside venue to enjoy Hawaii...tables in the sand, water crashing on the rocks and all the local favorite foods. Service was a bit slow, but it was peak lunch time, and with the view it wasn't a concern. Would definitely make a return visit.
