Description: Fish Hopper Seafood & Steaks - 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 seafood and a selection of seafood flown in weekly from the mainland's west coast. Join us for Kona's longest Happy Hour from 2pm - 9:30pm every day! We have a variety of mixed drinks including our signature Bucket of Fire, Flaming Volcano and gluten free Big Island Mai Tai! This is the perfect oceanfront location to gather with friends! We are within walking distance to shops and historic sites in Kailua-Kona. Our restaurant is a landmark (formerly the Ocean View Inn) and has been a local favorite since 1934. The Fish Hopper has been beautifully restored to expand upon its spectacular ocean views. Every seat has a view! We proudly serve seafood from sustainable sources, harvested by methods that do not harm the environment. Open daily from 7am - 930pm.

We ate here 3 times on this visit to Kona. Our first visit this time was for Valentines Day. I had made a reservation online before leaving home, which was the best idea. There was live music during the Valentine's Day dinner. The menu offers a wide variety of fresh fish or beef. The service is very professional and friendly. We enjoyed all our meals here very much. My only complaint was that Happy Hour pricing does not apply to the people eating in the restaurant, only the bar patrons got half price drinks. This didn't really make sense to me. Restaurant Customers are spending more money for meals in the dining room, they should catch a break on drinks which are $12-$15 for a cocktail. The manager is friendly & attentive and is often seen walking around checking with people that everything is ok, and he is quick to respond to any issues.
Clean accessible bathrooms, limited parking. We walked here from the King Kamehameha hotel. Worth the experience, for the delicious fine dining.

Right in town with great views. Good fish and Chips. Open front across from seawall. Happy atmosphere especially on cruise ship port day. Special kudos to Katie at the bar for her friendliness, expertise, and genuine caring. Real friendly place.

We were not sure upon entering this restaurant, which is directly on Kona's main drag, whether it was a tourist trap?! We were pleasantly surprised with the attentive service, the warm hospitality, the delicious food, and the good value for our meal. We had fish and chips (mahi mahi). The fish tasted fresh and it was lightly breaded. We had sweet potato fries and cole slaw, both of which were tasty -- the cole slaw included small pieces of fresh pineapple, a refreshingly good addition! The restaurant had an open view of the ocean, which was much appreciated as we enjoyed our meals.
