“Really enjoyed ourselves here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I was a little apprehensive when seeing this place It looked like a tourist kind of restaurant right across from the beach, but it was busy so I decided to take a chance. I was sure glad I did! We ate upstairs on the open patio (ocean view!). We had a wonderful salmon salad and the service was very good. All in all it was a very pleasant experience.

“Great View but mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

The view is great. The people watching on the street right in front is like a floorshow. Service kind of slow with a waiter who doesn't really want to be there. Plus there was a waiter who had nothing to do until the party of 21 showed up. This guy just sat around or looked at the girls on the street. Food was OK, nothing to grab you and make you want to come back. My recommendation is look for something else.

“Best Fish Tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you are looking for a place to eat where the staff is friendly and helpful the you owe it to yourself to give Humpy's a try. The wait staff has knowledge of which beer or wine goes with your dish and cares about how the dish is presented to you. Join everyone there meet some new friends with the Aloha seating. If you want more join them for a late night dinner and music. Don't foreget about their Sunday and Holiday Brunch the best in town.

“Awesome Beer Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The Top Spot in Kona for a great selection of beers on tap, excellent views of the ocean and great food. Right in the center of town so it is easy walking distance from anywhere! This is also the 'go to' place for locals, just the right mix to keep me on 'local time'.

“Great view...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I felt the view was great but the food was not good at all. The waiter (bless his heart) was working his tail off so the level of friendliness was not exactly up there but he was busy so we understood.
