“Bad experience in 2011 - won't go back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We had a reservation last year - we were seated promptly but then ignored by the waiter who proceeded to wait on adjacent table of four, forty-something men who came in after we did. We waited over ten minutes and no one came to table so we left and ended up at Roy's - atmosphere was better at Huggo's but we will not tolerate rude, inattentive waiters and though this year we are staying within walking distance we avoid the place unless it is for a private party.

“Everything people say about this place is true!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Several people had told us that we had to do a sunset dinner and drinks at Huggo's On The Rocks. We made it about an hour before sunset and got seated at a great table. The Happy Hour drinks were AMAZING!!! I had a "well drink" of Passion Fruit Juice and Vodka that was fantastic and the price was unbelievable! We had appetizers and a dinner and the total price was shockingly low compared to other spots we visited. Service was great, The atmosphere couldn't be improved on, Fantastic musician serenaded us for a couple hours. One of the highlights of our week-long stay on the big island. I would definitely go back.

“sandwiches for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We ordered two lunch specials to share: a tuna fish sandwich (which was a chopped fish patty served in a bun) and a beef dip sandwch served with fries. They were both good but not exceptional. Cost about $30 for the two sandwiches. The view of the ocean and the outdoor seating was nice.

“BURGER PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We have been to the Island five times now counting a cruise ship. Our first time here in September 2012 was great - loved the cheese burgers and fries.

“Nice restaurant by our hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We were staying at the Royal Kona Resort and walked over for dinner the first night we were in Kona. It was a great location right on the water. Food was good and there was entertainment. Live music and a hula dancer. We didn't stay very late, however I am sure it makes a nice night spot with the music and bar.
