Wonderful experience!

Picked this place as a shot in the dark for our last dinner in Hawaii. Wonderful meal! Great view of the surf, nice breeze, great food & service. Wish I was able to go back tomorrow. Clam chowder was terrific & as was the Shrimp Trio with risotto.

We ate breakfast at Fish Hopper Seafood and Steaks 4 times while we were in Kona April and May 2015. Excellent food, served hot, excellent service and what a view. They opened at 7:00 a.m., a plus for us early risers. Although you would think of this place for lunch or dinner they had excellent breakfasts with new specials each... More

e really enjoyed the Fish Hopper. We went at 3 pm between crowds. The service was great and the ambiance we wonderful.

Sherry was our Server and she took good care of us! Try the coconut shrimp, outstanding flavor and chili sauce. We both had the special filet with béarnaise sauce, cooked to perfection. And they have a great wine list, decent prices. We already made reservations for next week for my birthday dinner!

We were looking for somewhere to eat after a snorkel trip and I had read some reviews of Fish Hopper, so decided to go in. It was right before the kitchen stopped cooking so they thankfully took us in. Our waitress Sherry was super friendly which was lovely. We just had the basic fish and chips which was good, but...

My wife and I had a romantic evening meal along the Kailua Kona waterfront in an open air dining room. The food was served promptly, excellent flavor, and nice portions. The presentation was elegant and the staff friendly. The manager,Joel, was quite gracious and spent several minutes in conversation with us. It was the nicest meal we had during our... More

We went there twice because parking is convenient and the view is great. The food is good, not great and the service is average, not great. They do not give you any recommendation because they are busy.
