Food was good but over priced. dessert was absolutely terrible. How can you make mousse taste like bubble gum?

“Favorite music to dine by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The nights L T Smooth plays his guitar are when we choose to dine at Hugo's. We go for the music, the view and the atmosphere. The food is fine, but we go for the experience. Nothing more fun than dancing with my 6 year old granddaughter.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Enjoyed the live music in the bar on Friday night at Hugo's. Make sure you hit happy hour for reasonably priced food and drinks.

“Great location - average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Had a group of 6 and we had a very nice meal, just one I can't rave about. I wouldn't say stay away, after all it was ok, but there are other places on the island I liked better. Drinks also were average. The recommendation for this place is the location. Right on the water. If you have a seat right on the water it's great.

“Restaurant side review - Gotta ask for Island Johnny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We ate at the dining side (not on the rocks side) twice during our stay. The first night was a birthday celebration with friends. We had Island Johnny as our server. He was awesome! Super friendly, and made our experience great. We went back a second night alone and he came to visit our table even though he wasn't our server. What great service!
