“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Location is superb. In my opinion the best part of the restaurant. We had a party of six- the only restaurant who would not split checks for 3 couples. On the whole everyone was satisfied with their dinner. A bit pricey for the portion-probably would not go back.

“Excellent fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Excellent location, outstanding food quality, friendly, helpful, attentive waiters. My only bone to pick would be for $36, I expected a larger serving of Swordfish.

“Mixed review...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We dined here last week, made a reservation, had to wait for our table, had to wait at least 15 minutes in the bar area before we were even waited on, but once we were seated at our oceanfront table everything changed from bad to great!
They have a decent variety of food and wine options, however what made this dining experience great was our waiter "IJ" aka Island Johnny, her was FANTASTIC and a GREAT addition to this dining establishment. He was attentive and entertaining and gave us a complimentary dessert as one of the four dinners in our part was not cooked to par, but was still good. His efforts made this dining experience one to remember and when we dine here again we will definitely request to be in his section!
Mahalo IJ you were AWESOME!!

“Great Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We enjoyed a terrific dinner at this comfortable and elegant location. The food was well thought out, with a varied and interesting menu. The wine list is very good, the service attentive, and the views - day or night - are gorgeous.

“Great Prime Rib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Situated on the ocean, Huggo's provides a great atmosphere and view while you eat your dinner. I always eat their prime rib and have never been disappointed. Excellent service, prompt attention upon arrival, and well prepared food. Give it a try.
