We went here for breakfast, since our favorite place (Java on the Rocks) closed down. We love the setting, and got a table right by the water. Service was definitely slow and it really wasn't that busy. The other disappointment was the food. First, they do not even offer 100% Kona coffee, and getting any coffee refills is a major... More

Huggo's and Huggo's on the Rocks are just next door to each other. Perfect for watching the sunset before enjoying a delicious meal. Staff is very friendly. Open air, so always a nice cool breeze.

If location and view are more important to you than food, Huggo's is your spot and mine. The food was okay, but easily could have been better. Three of us had the guava BBQ sandwich. It could have been excellent with more sauce and slaw and less fatty pieces of pork. Service was good.

Love love the halibut fish and chips. Very casual, can sit upstairs or grab a stool at the bar downstairs and enjoy the two great bartenders. Good selection of beer and ale. But dont leave Kona without trying the Halibut, very good!

Stopped in to Huggo's for lunch. Nothing fancy, a couple of burgers and fish tacos. Food was good, our server was engaging and attentive. The ocean view was great and the prices reasonable. After two Mia Tai's each, we were happy and full. The Mia Tai's were the best on the island. Hint: Look for a table with some shade... More

Awesome atmosphere to enjoy appetizers and dinner--right next to the ocean. Watch the waves against the lava rocks and take in the sunset. Watch for the green flash as the sunsets into the ocean.

We had placed an OpenTable reservation for this restaurant several months before our visit and to our delight, our wonderful table was ready on time at ths popular Kona dining establishment. We ordered Mai Tai's as our before dinner cocktail and they were just average as compared to others in the area (unbelievable Mai Tai's at Rays on the Bay).... More

Stopped in for dinner while in Kona on vacation with friends. We go a table near the water's edge which gave us a great view of the sunset.. The service was pleasant and the food was ok, but nothing great. The prices were not high by water's edge standards.
