Appertizers arrived 5 minutes apart.

Main course Ahi Tuna was great, but the catch of the day that my wife ordered came seriously undercooked and had to be sent back. It returned the same piece of now over cooked fish 10 minutes later. We tried but couldn't finish it.
Did even border to order dessert and get the hell out in a hurry :-(
Definately the worst dinner we had in a week on the Big Island.

We went here on recommendation from our hotel and several travelers we had met while on our two week trip to Hawaii. Food was good and views are nice. If you're looking for a romantic evening this is a good choice but try to make your reservations after 7:30 PM to avoid the screaming babies.

the views over the bay were beautiful at night. Food and service were very good and much more reasonable than the hotel food at the more north locations but it was a drive.

OK, some people said Huggos was a little bit dated but so what. The night we went, they were very crowded but were staffed well and handled everything in a professional way as a long term restaurant should. We sat along the rail as high surf was rolling in. It added to a wonderful evening. The fish was fresh and presented well. The waiter was excellent, explaining the dishes and answering questions.

Overall, very good.

We have been regular guests for the last 3 years and had to realize that Huggo's restaurant is on a downward trend. Even with a reservationa made well in advance you feel like being unwelcome and you always have to wait in line to get a table. The floor manager seems to be trained to disappear as soon as a problem arises and the waiters seem to be overwhelmed with their tasks.
Last time, New Years eve, the food was absolutely horrible, unseasond and cold. The waiters excuse for this: we have 300 guests to serve. That's not what I expect as answer!
The menu has never been changed withing the last 2 years and I would suggest to exchange the chef. Sad, even the great location can't make you feel comfortable. We really won't go back again.
