“Great Prime Rib”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Situated on the ocean, Huggo's provides a great atmosphere and view while you eat your dinner. I always eat their prime rib and have never been disappointed. Excellent service, prompt attention upon arrival, and well prepared food. Give it a try.

“Great View and Music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

This restaurant could not be closer to the water. I actually had to move my chair back from the rock wall as the sea spray kept sprinkling over the wall and getting me and my shirt wet.

It is more of a bar and it serves bar food, I had the fish tacos which were good. Not great, but it's a beach bar after all and thats what I was looking for. The drinks were creative and large and the beers were cold. We had the opportunity to sit and listen to the band and they were awesome. I wanted to see if they sold a CD when they were done, but they got out of there before I could ask.

I would recommend this place for a drink and for the music. Its right off the main drag and the restaurant next door "Huggo's" is supposed to be more high-end and better quality food. We did not eat there ourselves, but would try it if we ever got back to Kona.

The Huggos on the Rocks would be were we went for drinks before dinner though.

Awesome sunsets too. Location - location - location!

“Oh the view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Had drinks and dinner here. The local grass-fed beef burgers were so good. Come early to get a good table for a sunset view while your feet at in the sand.

Got a great table on the water without a reservation. Our server was awesome, the food was great and the atmosphere could not have been better.
