Third time to Huggos. Great atmosphere with open air dining right against the ocean. Our group of 9 got a beautiful spot where we enjoyed the music from Huggos on the Rocks. Food and drinks are great. Though the best is dessert: their Hula Pie...More

We lived in Kona for 9 years but realized that the best way to enjoy Huggo's is during their Happy Hour. The setting is ocean front which tourist's love but the prices and quality are not worth the view. We have a good friend who...More

Excellent location on the waterfront in Kailua (Kona) on the Big Island. Plenty of menu choices with local Hawaiian flavors readily available, and selections for children as well. Recommend the fish specials which are always the "local catch" of the day and offered in different...More

Huggo’s has a beautiful water front view. We stopped by for some breakfast during a quick trip to Kona. The best parts of the meal was the view, their daily muffins, and the fresh cut pineapple. Service was so so, food took a long time,...More

Our waiter Chad made us feel at home immediately on being seated Oceanside on the patio. His recommendations were spot on and the food was delicious and moderately priced. One of the highlights of this particular restaurant ( beside the seaside location) is a very...More

This place has super great breakfast right on the water. With the best Bloody Marys we’ve had on the Big Island. I had the local omelette and it was fantastic. This place is a must try. You won’t be disappointed.

This is my third time in Kona, but my first at Huggo’s. One thing I’ve found a bit disappointing at some Kona restaurants is the over-cooked fish😬 Not the story at Huggo’s. The Mahi chef’s special was delish and my wonderful server (Chad) suggested the...More

They do serve really good breakfasts, and great breakfast pizzas, which I couldn't wrap my head around at first. However, they are awesome. Enjoy!

I did no sot see eel either. Just remember to sit away from the other Huggo's, though, if you want quiet.
