We found this restaurant just wandering along the street looking for a place that covered seafood and other as our family is divided. We were offered free calamari entree if we bought another entree. My son devoured the whole plate and wanted more. Everyone was happy with the food and lovely staff

The Fish Hopper is located across the sea wall from the Kailua Pier. Wednesday's are fun days as the cruise ship, Pride of Ameria, makes its weekly stop. If you are driving in town, remember that they have parking up the hill behind, so makes it easy to eat and go elsewhere. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here... More

This bay view restaurant has some great marketing going on. We stated at the Courtyard a block away in mid July. Each time we would stroll past, they always offered a piece on delicious pineapple. The fellow at the table gave us a card for a free appetizer, since we had just eaten, but mention we would be back. We... More

Had a variety of dinners and drinks and each was excellent. The restaraut was easy to find and has a great view of the bay. Showed up without reservations on a Thursday at 5:00 pm and had no issues getting prime table seating. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We were allowed to leave the car in the parking lot while... More

All four of us enjoy the food, the sights and the good Service. My Fish trio was finally something unique and amazingly good. We highly recommend the Fish Hopper!

Love the food, drinks and location. Very well located near marina and in the shopping area with nice street and ocean view. A decent size appetizer is complementary with "Fish Hopper - complimentary appetizer card" that can be obtained from most of the shops and tourist places. Their daily specials are decently priced, good quantities and taste good. Staff are... More

The food was delicious, nicely prepared and presented. The wait staff were very attentive but unobtrusive. The view (ocean right there, with spinner dolphins entertaining us in the wharf as we ate) was beautiful and relaxing. We enjoyed this dinner far more than our dinner at Roy's in Waikoloa (the entire Roy's restaurant was loud, obnoxious, couldn't hear a word... More

We first discovered the place after a tour at the nearby marina and were greeted with a sample of pineapple and samples of local Kona coffees. We enjoyed the food so much, our kids begged us to go back the next day. My son couldn't get enough of the salsa verde that came with my daughter's fish tacos. Good food,... More

While visiting Kona we went to the Fish Hopper several times for both lunch and dinner and each time it was great. First of all, the service is top notch and the manager always comes around asking how everything is. Food is very good and the mai tai's are soooo good. Great location looking out at the ocean and harbor.... More
