3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had reservations made by our hotel, but they didn't have them upon check in. We were sent to the bar area, to wait for a table, she said it wouldn't be long, it wasn't. However we never met a bar server at the area to get a drink order so after waiting 20 minutes for the table the bar... More

Every time I go to Hawaii. I have to come here. For its music, service and food. The cocktails are great too. But most of all to feel the ocean's breeze and soft white sand while I enjoy this hidden paradise spot.

This restaurant recently started serving breakfast and it was delicious. But even if the food were just good, the view is worth it. It is right on the ocean. We had a kalua pork benedict and stuffed french toast. Benedict was great, french toast too sweet for our preference.

We have had dinner at Huggo's three times during our current visit to Kona. All three times we ate in the bar off of the bar menu. During Happy Hour there are a few select items on the menu (typewritten in red), that are half price. We have tried the hamburger, ribs, and the teriyaki steak, all were very good,... More

Friendly staff, great ocean views, decent menu and bar. Best place in Kona for sunset. Parking can be difficult, but there is a big public lot across the street behind those businesses.

September is coupon month in Kona, so we decided to go to Huggo's since we have never been there. The coupon was for their hBar and states "Maximum 2 Items Per Person Per Coupon." We found out that the coupon is good for the entire bar menu, but we were told, in no uncertain terms, that only 1 item could... More

Huggos is perfect for a dinner while watching the sunset. There's not a bad seat in the house, but I would recommend booking ahead of time and asking for a table next to the ocean. We loved watching the waves crashing on the black rocks below while we watched the sunset directly in front of us. The food was quite... More

This would be a terrible meal at $20 per plate. At $40 per plate it is robbery. My husband and I both had ahi dishes and both were cooked completely through. Typically with a good ahi steak you just want a sear but the steak is mainly rare. Both our dishes were like canned tuna. The best I can say... More

Nice restaurant with beautiful views of the ocean. Menu is mostly meat and seafood. My husband had pime rib and said it was delicious. I had the flatbread, which was okay. Salads are good. You need reservations.

We enjoyed our visit to Huggo's. The food was really great- try the Brussels sprouts. They accommodated my gluten free restrictions and had a great gluten free chocolate cake. The real star here is the view. Gorgeous sunset. Sit it the open air section in the back for unobstructed views.
