Great location!

We had a nice lunch here- the wait staff were very friendly and quick to offer up suggestions. Meals are presented in very cute island-styled platters. Drinks were also great tho they were missing a few local beers that they had on their menu. The location is a big plus - right by the water, with... read more

We managed to arrive at the tail end of happy hour so ordered our meal off that menu. Nice selection of Pupu's, large enough to count as dinner and very good. The happy hour MiaTai was strong, view was fabulous and the live music with a Hula dance was icing on the cake. Staff was attentive, and my friend said... More

On the water, sandy patio, open air bar is what attracts a thirsty traveller. Other than that, drinks OK, food mediocre. Perhaps we should try it another time to raise the rating. Just didn't work for us, maybe needed another mai-tai and things would improve :-).

Unfortunately we didn’t get to eat here but we sat at this place for coffee when we met with our future wedding minister. The people are very nice. The place is very cool. It’s a great place to hang out and grab drinks. Will be back next time to dine here.

I'm sorry, but there was not a redeeming thing about the place. Disinterested hostess, god awful food and if there was ANY rum in our Margarita's, we certainly didn't taste it or feel it. They make a burger that is 1/2 beef and 1/2 pork bbq. Please, do not order it unless you want to be turned off burgers for... More

Came here for dinner Sunday night. Our burgers were very good and we loved the entertainment and the view. We came back for breakfast which was not so good; watery eggs, grounds in the coffee and a rude waitress. The waitress at dinner never smiled and looked like she would be somewhere else.

This is our first stop after Kona airport. Every single time we go here. EVERY TIME! There is no better stop after being in an airplane for at least 5 hours. You get to put your feet in the sand, have a Mai Tai, and some tuna poke. It's near perfection for a trip to the Big Island. Feet in... More

Casual and fun dining experience. To drink, we had the Hawaiian Rainbow (delicious) and to eat, we had the Ka'lua pork nachos and the Ahi burger (both very tasty). They also had some singers and a dance school for hula performing. Very entertaining.

Huggos doesn't look like much, but wow! What a great place for good food, drink and friends. Watch the Sunset while you dine. Live music on many nights. Very reasonably priced for Hawaii and the quality is great. .
