The service and food at this place is just fantastic! They were great at recommendations and making sure that we were having the best meal ever. I recommend the calamari, sashimi, the macadamia nut fish, and all the desserts! And ask for a table right up against the rocks it makes it twice as amazing!

We had a delightful dinner at Huggos while vacationing on the Big Island. The restaurant has a great location in Kailua-Kona and you really can't beat the view. We made a reservation for a table by the rail for 6:00 in hopes of catching a beautiful sunset, and we weren't disappointed. The food was quite good, but paled in comparison... More

Actually very good! The entree selections were awesome. Cioppino and the lamb special. It's a little pricier but well worth it.

We had the most romantic and wonderful dinner here for our last night in Kona. We sat on the patio and got to watch the sunset as we ate dinner. I ordered the lobster crab mascarpone ravioli which was literally to die for. The garlic bread was amazing, as well. My pic doesn't do it justice. Hubby ordered the shrimp... More

We ate at Huggo's for breakfast and dinner. Both meals were very good. Breakfast entrees each come with one delicious, homemade mini banana nut muffin before the meal. I could have just eaten a few of those for breakfast (I wish that was an option). I ordered the delicious Pina Fresh cocktail with pineapple vodka, coconut milk and muddled pineapple.... More

Overall the food was average, but the server was very kind and the free banana nut muffins were exquisite. Although I was a bit taken aback with four dollars for an extra piece of toast with my omlet.

Fabulous location, but the rest is pretty average. Wait time (without reservation) was 30 mins, although the place only seemed half full. But that was OK, we had a drink at the bar. The table we eventually got had a great view, and the wait staff were pretty good to start with. The food was average though - I was... More

Was giving a 20 minute wait estimate. Watched more than half a dozen tables sit empty but was not seated. Order drinks while waiting, they were the worst margaritas I've ever been served and they never delivered my child's soda. Left and went to another restaurant across the street that has the same view and had a great meal.

We ended up at Huggo's several nights after long days scuba diving, and really enjoyed each meal. The location is truly on the water, sunsets were awesome, good drinks, the waitrons were all great and the food was very good. Especially enjoyed their poke, abalone, fish specials and salads.
