“Great Sunsets”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Excellent place for Mai Tais and PuPus. Outdoor location right on the water with perfect views of sunsets. Most evenings there is live entertainment.

“Great view but what's not around Kona”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Recommended as a local restaurant, we went for lunch. The restaurant is on the water side of the main road offering great open air views but the food is bad enough to kill the thrill of the view. Fish of the day and sliders were really not good at all and the $50 dollar lunch tab ouch. Go for a drink or draft beer and dine elsewhere.

Best place to enjoy the evening. Great wait staff and the venue can not be beat. Music by the sea cannot be missed.

“Go for the view and music, not for the food or service ”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Location, location, location. If this establishment was a block off the beach it wouldn't survive, in my opinion. Bartenders can be rude, one on particular that all of the locals seem to know is that way but the owner doesn't do anything about it. Service can be slow, food is okay. Still, the location on the beach, especially at sunsets, and the usually good beach-bar free music usually make it worth the experience to stop by for a beer.

“Good food with a better view and perfect service!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

My Buddy and I came all the way from Alberta, Canada to do some fishing and stumbled onto Huggo's on our first day randomly for lunch. We went their pretty much everyday after for lunch as the food was excellent, the view of the ocean right there in your face was fantastic and the sand was an added extra touch to make you feel like you were right on the beach. But I have to send out a special thank you and praise to our server, Hannah. From the first day on, we had to ask for Hannah. Her bubbly personality and smile was very welcoming. She has a heart of gold and advised us of the great many places to see on Kona Island. She recommended Kua Bay which was a favorite of ours to go as well as different hiking trails. Can't speak high enough of how Hannah was so helpful, nice and very informative.Great, relaxing places to be, overlooking the ocean on a hot day. I recommend the Fire Rock Beer too!! I would go here again and would recommend it to others.
