Great View for Dinner and Fresh Fish

A great view and just a bit touristy for us but the food was excellent. The drinks were about $2 too expensive but very good. We enjoyed fresh fish and a great view of the harbor. The service was excellent. We used Open Table to make the reservation, which was nice.

Based on a recommendation from the hotel concierge, we decided to eat at Fish Hopper for dinner. Lauren had the seared ahi tuna which she shared with Alex, who was resistant to eating any fish whatsoever. After one bite Alex was wanting his own. Verlyne enjoyed the steak and shrimp skewer combo, which she found to be good. I had... More

Nine of us had an early dinner our last nite of a two week vacation. Three of us had the petite filet with Gorgonzola and they were all over cooked, dry and tough. The other meals were better but not by much. The tropical drinks were very good and the location is a plus. T

The food was good, although typically tourist overpriced as you'd expect from their front and center Alii Drive across from the wharf setting. Service was friendly and good, nice menu choices, fresh fish.

Gorgeous ocean view! Great food, great service, and some delicious food! I only wish we hadn't waited until our last night in Kona to try this place. The view is to die for!! It offers a perfect overlook of the downtown strip and of course, the beautiful ocean. Our waitress Andrea was super great and was able to answer our... More

Enjoyable meal with dessert overlooking the water. Food was enjoyable, wait staff pleasant. Refreshing after a long day of shopping along the streets of Kona. Lovely view of the swimmers, boats and the dock. Pleasant breeze from the water.
