Loved breakfast and dinner here. It can get quite crowded at dinner time so hand at the bar and it will be well worth the wait.

This restaurant is a lovely casual restaurant with great service. We had no reservation for lunch but were seated at a lovely ocean side table in the sand. Umbrella overhead protected from blazing sun or rain. Our server was amazing- attentive, but not in-your-face and genuinely friendly- a rare commodity in a lot of places. She was honest on recommendations... More

Food was not excellent and were disappointed. We should have just eaten the Happy Hour appies which looked good, and were a lot cheaper than dinner was. The service was good though and they had live entertainment in the lounge which was excellent! All the servers was friendly though.

Nice restaurant, great view, nice to feel the sand in your toes. Really enjoyed my meal, full of flavour and good size. Service was ok, not great. Actually we almost walked out as the initial waitress was quite rude and gave no welcome at all but luckily we choose a table where she wasn't serving and after that service was... More

I really love going to Huggos on the rocks when I'm in Kona. Just know that if you decide to come here, they really under-pour the alcohol and your drinks will always be weak. The perfect location RIGHT on the water and live music makes up for it. They have a great live music line up. The food is meh,... More

Love sitting at the patio tables with my feet in the sand and enjoying the sunset, fruity drinks and delicious tacos. Our server was sweet and attentive all the way to dessert and coffee several hours later.

We always enjoy going to Huggo's on the Rocks, liking it's informality, the menu selection and waterfront location. All our visits to Huggo's on this vacation were for lunch, each time ordering something different. We enjoyed their Rocks special (14.95), the Manini Burgers (12.95), the Classic burger (13.95) and their Pork sandwich (11.95). twice we sat at a table in... More

Ate at lava lava( same owner) earlier in the week and food was excellent there. Food wasn't even close to the same. Had pork nachos at lava lava, very flavorful, covered with real cheddar cheese. At Huggos same thing had American cheese with no flavor. Salsa was blah. Very overrated for how expensive it was. Especially for a same owner... More
