Sunsets and sand

A great alternative to the more expensive Huggo's next door. Waterfront location is perfect. Get there early if you want a table for sunset

We love going to Huggo's On The Rocks! You can choose to have your chair in the sand or cement, under the big awning. Great food and good drinks, especially during "Happy Hour"!

We stopped by Huggo's on the Rocks for lunch. Overlooking the ocean with your toes in the sand. Great atmosphere. I had the guava BBQ ka'lua pork sandwich with homemade chips. It was awesome! My wife had the fish tacos that were scrumptious. Our friends are gluten free and they had several options and said their choices were great. I... More

I'm a former island resident having dined at Huggo's about a dozen times. But as of my... More

Had a great meal and great service. It was interesting that there was a 45 minute wait in one part of the restaurant but yet they told that we could seat ourselves in the other part of the restaurant. We sat ourselves and got the same service, same menu, etc and had a great time. Beautiful setting next to the... More

Not often you get to sit at a table with a cool beer and feel the sand between your toes and watch the sunset in a place that also has a varied imaginative menu and live entertainment. Be prepared to wait a bit for a table if you don't get there early. And take a good camera to capture the... More

We ate at Huggo's at noon one day. The attraction was beautiful oceanside dining. We had a table write next to the ocean and enjoyed watching boats go in and out of the harbor and someone fishing from the shore. We also saw a whale in the distance. The food was good and we also enjoyed the pineapple cider.

The location and ambiance is fantastic. Waves crashing by your side with cold beer. Peel off the shoes and bury your feet in the sand. Paradise! Had grilled chicken sandwiches with bacon and home made chips. It was good bar food with a really nice waiter.
