My wife and I had eaten at huggo's main location on a previous trip though it was an ok experience it was nothing to write home about... This was a totally different environment. Live music, budget friendly, and my wife loved that she could put...More

Short delay in getting a table as was quite busy, but worth the wait. The bar and wait staff are really helpful and attentive. There was a small addition added to drinks as they have live entertainment. The entertainment was well worth the extra cost,...More

Huggo's has decent food, nothing outstanding, but it's fairly priced. Th big draw here for us was they seemed to be the only restaurant open late near the Royal Kona Resort, and it's hard to get back to town at a decent hour after driving...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."
