Huggos was great. They had live entertainment and the food taste so fresh. I watched the sun set as I ate my fabulous meals. And the bartender was sure hooking our drinks up!! Nice place.

A pretty average meal. Fresh catch of the day was expensive and over cooked - and didn't get delivered as ordered. The chips were not crisp. Service was friendly but very slow. Conclusion - overpriced for what was served

Had lunch here. Such a relaxing spot. Loved sitting with my feet in the sand and enjoying the view. Food and service very good. Comfort food - fried rice, fish tacos, burgers, ahi poke. Service was good and with a smile. Wish we had come in the evening for the live music - next trip!

We just went there for a drink after dinner and to enjoy some live music. We ordered a lava flow. It was pretty standard. The location is nice because it's on the beach under umbrellas. We sat at the bar because it was the only opening at the time.

Great food. Not over priced as some have said. Fantastic live entertainment. Great service. Beautiful location. Menue is limited. Drinks were good but nothing special. We would return.

Nice restaurant, great ocean views and very large breakfasts, too much to eat but excellent. Will probably try dinner one night.

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."
