Description: Fish Hopper - Kailua-Kona * Experience the beauty of the Pacific Ocean at The Fish Hopper Seafood and Steaks, overlooking Kailua Bay on the Big Island Hawaii. Enjoy fresh Big Island and seafood flown in weekly from California. Our bar serves up signature Bucket of Fire and Volcano flaming drinks and is the perfect oceanfront location to gather with friends for Happy Hour. We are within walking distance to shops and historic sites. A landmark (formerly the Ocean View Inn) and a local favorite Kona restaurant since 1934. The Fish Hopper has been beautifully restored to expand upon its spectacular ocean views. We proudly serve seafood from sustainable sources, harvested by methods that do not harm the environment. Open daily from 730am-930pm.

The best Mai Tai's on the island and wonderful staff too. You should also go there for the Volcano drink or the Bloody Mary (we wish we had more time and days to stop in and try these as well. All is all, the owner was wonderful and our waiter and bartender were extremely gracious and made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely go back our next time to the Big Island.

We stopped here about mid morning for coffee while waiting for a tour. The décor was beautiful and the atmosphere was great. The coffee was good and the fruit plate was also good. Our server was very attentive and very friendly. Wish we'd had time to have a meal there. Our server was Cisco492.

So happy to know that your Fish Hopper Kona was memorable! Those who love coffee will be thrilled to know that along with our regular house blend, we have a menu of specialty 100% pure Kona coffee. Our French press coffee menu offers aficionados everything from a aromatic medium roast to the premium Peaberry coffee. Kona coffee is known for being silky, low acidic with a slightly fruity finish.

Had appetizers here and a kids meal for our toddler. Comparatively to neighboring food establishments offering similar good choices; this place is tougher on the pocket book. They do have "some" reasonable options but seem to target a deeper hit to the pocketbook.

Happy hour only in bar AT THE BAR and not offered to the rest of the restaurant.

Service was pretty good. View from restaurant is great.

Mahalo for visiting with your family and sharing your thoughts! We are so happy that you enjoyed our view of Kailua Bay! Our family friendly restaurant has a wonderful reasonably priced children's menu. Our Happy Hour is from 2-6pm and then again from 8p-930p when we offer discounted bar appetizers and drinks. Those who want to save more can ask for a free appetizer card from Cherry Hill Kona coffee store next door! Allows for a free chef's choice appetizer (our tasty calamari) with the purchase of an entrée.Hope this helps!
