“Great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Had a wonderful last minute Valentine's meal at Huggo's. My son and his wife had a negative experience there a month or so ago so we were a bit hesitant to go back... However, the food was fabulous and service was good. I highly recommend the prime rib which my husband had or the mahi mahi - both were awesome!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Appertizers arrived 5 minutes apart.

Main course Ahi Tuna was great, but the catch of the day that my wife ordered came seriously undercooked and had to be sent back. It returned the same piece of now over cooked fish 10 minutes later. We tried but couldn't finish it.
Did even border to order dessert and get the hell out in a hurry :-(
Definately the worst dinner we had in a week on the Big Island.

“Nice views. Food better than average.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We went here on recommendation from our hotel and several travelers we had met while on our two week trip to Hawaii. Food was good and views are nice. If you're looking for a romantic evening this is a good choice but try to make your reservations after 7:30 PM to avoid the screaming babies.

“great view with very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

the views over the bay were beautiful at night. Food and service were very good and much more reasonable than the hotel food at the more north locations but it was a drive.

“A little crowded but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

OK, some people said Huggos was a little bit dated but so what. The night we went, they were very crowded but were staffed well and handled everything in a professional way as a long term restaurant should. We sat along the rail as high surf was rolling in. It added to a wonderful evening. The fish was fresh and presented well. The waiter was excellent, explaining the dishes and answering questions.

Overall, very good.
