“Great Mai Tai's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Service at bar sucked. Older crowd however the live band was phenomenal. LT Smooth is great!! Can't beat the ambience of live music on the beach front at sunset

“Burgers and a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

We stopped into Huggo's on the Rocks for lunch one gorgeous day. It's a seat yourself situation which can be a little confusing, but it wasn't crowded so we grabbed a table right at the waters edge; toes in the sand which I think is so cool. It took a while to have a waitress notice us, but after that she was very sweet and attentive. Ordered the Manini sliders, made from Island raised beef. Honestly, one of the best burgers ever. Between the frizzled onions and the Swiss cheese and dressing it was so tasty. But the best part was that they grilled the inside of the bun to a crunch goodness that was awesome. Loved it.

“Great views and vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We LOVED this place - was the perfect way to cap off our trip, just wish we'd gone sooner. Arrived to catch sunset and happy hour. The Mai Tai's were yummy, and food was delicious. The waiter, Dylan, took extra care with my shellfish allergy (not an easy feat at a restaurant known for their shellfish), and checked on me often. We wished we knew about the happy hour deals on food - great deals on the dishes, and we would have rather filled up on $3 fish tacos than the sides that came with our regular meals. The crowd was a fun mix of tourists and locals, incredible views and the music was wonderful (LT Smooth).

“Huggo's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Now this place ROCKS. We were in Kona for the Hawaii Ironman and our condo was just up the road. We went there and they had a great band playing covers and everyone was up dancing. It was hard not to stop in every night that we walked back home, because they had a different band playing each time. It was fun and the patrons were there for the same reason and the staff were very cool too. Don't walk past, Go in!!!

On the Rocks was where all the action was at! We stopped in for a Mai Tai and Chi Chi! Great drinks for a great night in Hawaii! The band was exceptional and lots of fun!
