Went for Mothers Day. Couldn’t have been more perfect. We were seated at a table with wonderful sunset views right on the water. Our waiter Fletcher was as good as it gets, he really enjoys his work and that is very rare lately. He was...friendly,attentive, had good suggestions, even took some great photos for us. We were really blown away. The bar and food service was quick, correct, and the flavors were spot on. And it was delivered hot. Thanks Huggos for a perfect evening.More

This fixture in Kona does not disappoint. The food is fantastic, the service is great, and the views are spectacular. If they have the Kona coffee cheesecake, don’t pass it up.

We enjoyed a spectacular meal at Huggo’s Restaurant. It’s attached to Huggos on the Rocks but the menu is quite different. I had the Mahi-mahi crusted with macadamia nuts, served with jasmine rice (very delicious). My husband really liked the teriyaki beef dish, our son...short ribs and shrimp. My son said it was the best meal he has ever eaten in all our Hawaii trips. They have a selection of interesting and delicious cocktails. This is right by the water and the crashing waves made it a little difficult to hear each other. The on the Rocks side had a singer/guitar player which we could faintly hear. We enjoyed a lovely sunset! Parking is a bit tricky but there is a parking lot for visitors of the restaurant plus other businesses (Snorkel Bobs for example) and you need to get that validated when you arrive at the restaurant.More

Amazing dinner. Beautiful location. I had the catch of the day in a delicious dish. A little spicy and sweet. No reservations. It’s a beautiful spot to see the sunset though it was cloudy when we were there.

The fish over jasmine rice was delicious, the appetizer of grilled shrimp was just ok—very bland. The price for both was $75 before tax and I drank ice water. Very overpriced considering it wasn’t a nice restaurant—simply a bar atmosphere.

The service is always excellent. There is no pressure to eat quickly so the table turns over. I had the fish special with the avocado salad. They were willing to substitute the Molokai sweet potato’s for the rice. The sweet potatoes are the best! My...husband had the teriyaki steak which was also excellent. It is a lovely ocean side settingMore

Don't go here. There is no service and the food is awful and very expensive. I really don't know how this place stays in business. The 6 of us all said the same thing, this place was a mistake, shame on us. You've be warned...⚠️More

We stopped by for a few bites and drinks to experience sunset. We sat at the bar for a casual experience. The bar staff was great - super friendly and responsive. We just had appetizers, and the food was quite good. The view toward sunset...is very nice. Listened to some live music which was also really, really good.More

This is the best spot to watch the sunset unless a cruiseship is in the bay. Then the port side gets the best spot! Excellent service, excellent food. There's a reason it's been in business for 54 years. The prime rib special was outrageous.

Worst experience ever. They had been open a week. New Years eve, French Rose out of stock, switched to Jordan Chardonnay out of stock. Ordered New Years eve special, Surf &Turf, requested medium rare for the steak. Brought the wrong entrees to the table. Then...informed us they were only doing the steak well done. Appetizer was served with mains. And lastly, my husband has food poisoning and was in the bathroom all night. Worst restaurant experience of our life.More

We had my wife's birthday dinner here and had a wonderful time. Drinks were well made, we had the shrimp skillet as an appetizer and it was great for 4 people. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and very tasty with some cheesy potatoes. My wife...and daughter had different fish dishes that they loved. They served us some lime pie for desert that was as good as anything we have had in Florida. Overall a great dinner and experience (view is great). Can't wait to return. Mahalo.More

The advertised happy hour isn’t any different than the dinner menu. No discount or specials. The view is the best part. Service friendly with designer drinks. We had the poke tower. Pricey and ok.

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.
