This location is very nice. Service was very good, but the food left a lot to be desired, it was average, prices were well above average. Portions are medium size. I was there with a friend for lunch and had the wasabi coleslaw which was much better than my fish sandwich. Wait staff was excellent.

My wife and I just initially just stopped by because we liked the view. As there was still Happy Hour going on, we ordered some drinks which were good. As we liked the atmosphere and the view, we stayed at Huggos till way after sunset and ordered food as well. The food indeed is average, but taking into account the... More

This restaurant has been around for over 50 years. Family owned. Right on the water in Kailua Kona. Always consistent. Best fresh fish. Great romantic place for sure, or if important friends, family are in town. It is more expensive than most restaurants, but the view makes up for it. If too expensive go next door which is also their... More

Yes great location, but the drinks were not up to scratch, the food was bland. The service was great, but not enough to have us come back.

Huggo's On The Rocks is on rocks and water shore. To hear the surf coming in was very nice. This a late evening meal with four couples in our group. Several couples ordered the sizzling shrimp pupus (appetizer) for their meal. They were very impressed. I had the homemade spaghetti with olive oil & poached Ahi (fish) mixed in. Very... More

went for lunch and nothing special. Pretty good fish tacos. The beer was extremely Skunky and warm. Obviously the highlight was sitting in the sand on the bay. I can see it's appeal but overall i wasn't that impressed.

We stopped here to have a drink and few snacks during happy hour. Well, we saw no reason to leave. The tables are in the sand and we were seated ocean front. Our server was very attentive even though all her tables were busy. The music started, and they even had a hula dancer perform later. The beer during happy... More

Spent an evening at Huggo's to watch the sunset and listen to the local music. The tables are set in the sand overlooking the rocky shoreline. The place was very busy, but we got a seat on the ocean. The food was very tasty and the portions large. Perhaps because the place was so busy, the service was slow. The... More

My girlfriend and I went to Huggos for a very special night out while staying in Kona. The food was exceptional! The atmosphere was so romantic and the entertainment was superb! It was a very enjoyable date night!
