We had just arrived from Chicago and wanted a nice bar and some aloha spirit to start our vacay. Huggo's was walking distance from our condo (key!) and it looked awesome on the water so we stopped in and sat at the bar. Ahhhh, perfect...More

We had an amazing breakfast experience on the water at Hugo's this morning! Our service from Jackie and Kyle was top notch. We had the Denver Omelet Special and fresh fruit. They cut the fruit while we were there so it was FRESH. The banana...More

Huggo’s offers generously-sized portions. I had the Stan’s pancakes with macadamia nuts and syrup. Yum, yum, yum! The food is great and the ocean views are priceless.

If you're looking for a restaurant with a view and you're not in a hurry, then Huggo's is one of your choices for the area. Huggo's talks about the "casual experience" and they are "casual" ... although some folks would call the service slow. An...More

We celebrated here when my grandson came to visit. It was about 8:30 pm. Service was ok, a little slow but the place was packed. Enjoyed the food. Next time we will visit earlier to enjoy the sunset

Went here for breakfast. Great location right on the water. Great range on the breakfast menu. Staff were efficient and friendly. Both our orders off the menu were very nice. Great stuff.

We have been to Huggo's twice and have really enjoyed the experience. It's a must do in Kona because there is nothing like sitting in the sand next to the water in the tent like atmosphere. The food and the service is good but not...More

It's a great place to sit and have a mai tai. Right on the water with a nice view of the bay. My friend and I had a salad and I'm afraid it wasn't too impressive, but we really didn't go there for the food.

What a great location to watch the sunset. We enjoyed the beautiful location as much as the food. This was a great choice to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had a lovely table with a great view. Our server was attentive and made some exceptional...More

Yes they do. It appeared when we were there that one half of the restaurant takes walkins and the other half reservations. We had reservations.

Opened in 1998 in the waterfront location adjacent to Huggo's fine dining restaurant, On the Rocks is a come as you are, kau kau (eat) great food with sand between your toes, kick back and enjoy great island entertainment center of fun on Hawaii Island. "After operating Huggo's restaurant for 18 years, we had the opportunity to purchase the vacant lot right next door and we jumped at it," Eric says. "The concept is what you see today - a casual bar and restaurant set literally on the rocks and sand of Kailua-Bay. Like many locals, we were tired of driving 20 miles or more up the coast to enjoy this sort of relaxed resort ambiance and decided to create just that right here in town."
