We had so much fun, received good drinks, and wonderful food we returned two other times with our family. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating and we might even go back again!

Loved sitting with my toes in the sand, watching the sunset, drinking a guava daiquiris. Food was well presented, large portions and absolutely delicious

It is one of our favourite outdoor lounges to have a couple beverages and appies in the afternoon while sitting by the ocean and watch the waves come up and splash on the shore.

This place is awesome to watch the sunsets with toes int he sand. My Mai Tai was top notch and the Poke Nachos are addictive! My husband enjoyed our first visit so much we came back for 2 more sunsets!

Great food and drinks at the bar. More casual than the sit down dinner side. There was live music, a great sunset, reasonably priced drinks and the menu was pretty extensive- we settled on a tasty fried rice dish and an outstanding noodle dish .

Decided to go a bit up market for anniversary dinner with friends. Overall had a good experience, the bar has a proper bartender who could make anything we asked for and top shelf spirits, prices aren’t cheap though. Our meal started off well, appetizers were...More

Came here for our last night in Kona. We would have liked to sit at a table by the sea wall, but they hadn't been wiped down yet, and the hostess didn't seem too keen on doing so. We had to settle on sitting at...More

Description
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."
