“Good Food. Slightly Overpriced”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

The food was very good. Some of the best clam chowder I have ever had. Their drinks are good. Entree's are a little over priced in my opinion, but are very good as well.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We found this restaurant just wandering along the street looking for a place that covered seafood and other as our family is divided. We were offered free calamari entree if we bought another entree. My son devoured the whole plate and wanted more. Everyone was happy with the food and lovely staff

“The place to see the ocean”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The Fish Hopper is located across the sea wall from the Kailua Pier. Wednesday's are fun days as the cruise ship, Pride of Ameria, makes its weekly stop. If you are driving in town, remember that they have parking up the hill behind, so makes it easy to eat and go elsewhere. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here at different times and always enjoy our selections. Most items are locally sourced which adds to their freshness. Great place to meet people that also want to walk the streets.
Guess that is why we are usually here at least once a week.

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

This bay view restaurant has some great marketing going on. We stated at the Courtyard a block away in mid July. Each time we would stroll past, they always offered a piece on delicious pineapple. The fellow at the table gave us a card for a free appetizer, since we had just eaten, but mention we would be back. We returned for lunch the next day...sure enough a piece of pineapple, and then free sample cups of the coffee they serve. We met the GM Bill a 28 year transplant to Kona. A nice man with great food and staff....btw my free appetizer was some excellent calamari which was a $12 goody.

Had a variety of dinners and drinks and each was excellent. The restaraut was easy to find and has a great view of the bay. Showed up without reservations on a Thursday at 5:00 pm and had no issues getting prime table seating. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We were allowed to leave the car in the parking lot while shopping in the nearby "tourist trap" shopping area along the main road. Very handy! Joel Genavia was the Manager and really helped make us feel comfortable!
