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."

Love eating at Huggos for special occassions. It's always crowded, so reservations are a good idea--especially worth it to get a table right over the water (although you can see & hear the ocean from any seat). Anytime is beautiful, but sunset is spectacular. The food is not only tasty, it is beautifully presented and the staff is always friendly and attentive.

A most enjoyable setting, and the happy hour deals are great and include some of their signature drinks..

We had omelets with fruit and coffee. Kona is a seedy place but this has good casual atmosphere on the water and good food. The coffee choices are a might confusing, and you order cafeteria style so order with some care as there are a lot of choices.
