Went to Fish Hopper on New Year's Eve for dinner, the wait was not too bad around 30 minutes and since it's right on the bay there was a nice breeze. Our seats ended up being at the end closest to the bay so we had a really nice view.

Service and the dinner specials were good. For being an outdoor environment we were still able to have conversation at a normal level, no yelling to be heard or anything like that even though there is a bar at the entrance and we were fairly close to the bar.

Our server Hope, suggested the Poke nachos and they were really good, well I almost all the Poke I had while in Hawaii was really good, but this was a really good dish. Only one of our party of four had something off the regular menu, so I cannot comment on how those dishes are, but the specials were really good so hopefully the regular menu follows suit. Next time I am back, I will for sure stop by again to try more of the menu.

Nice place with good food & ocean view. Friendly staff, but more expensive than former Basil restaurant few years ago, but nice stroll stop while in village.
