Crispy Coconut Shrimp
It was just fabulous! The service was impeccable! Highly recommend!
We had a great experience at the Fish Hopper. We had no expectations going in… it was just somewhere we could make a reservation last minute on a Friday in Kona. The food was excellent and the service was top notch.
For $30+ seafood pasta, more than 2 shrimp should be in the the dish. Food quality was very good, but value very poor
Food was tasty and service excellent. Great views overlooking the ocean across the street. Parking hard to find.
The waitress was very congenial and helpful. One of mahi-mahi plates was a little overdone and dry
Great service and food
Exceptional attention to our food sensitivities.
Monchong is amazing. Love the ambiance as well
Excellent service and what a location! Had breakfast … macadamia French toast and pancake breakfast. Both very good. Will be back …
The Sesame Crusted Ahi and Shrimp with mashed potatoes and veggies (broccoli and carrots) was simply to die for ! ! !
I had the black mahi mahi with grilled shrimp salad. It was amazing. Great table with ocean view. Went with two other couples and everyone enjoyed themselves.
We appreciated our server who was very attentive - but through no fault of hers, the food came way too fast. Everything was rushed. We had a lovely view of the sea - but could hardly enjoy it given the pace. Calamari was great. Tuna nachos were also very good. Coconut shrimp appetizer was okay ... nothing to rave about. The calmness of the waves, the beauty of the spot ... both were compromised by the rush.
Food was way overcooked, which made the coconut shrimp inedible. For the premium prices they charge the food should be significantly better! We will not be returning!!
On our last night on the island we had the most delicious & fun dinner at the Fish Hopper.
It was the absolute best meal we have had in the 2 weeks we’ve been here.
Thank you Fish Hopper♥️
Great menu and always delicious and high quality. Save room for the Mango-Lime cheesecake
FishHopper was amazing! I was celebrating my 41st birthday, so we drove over from Hilo for a staycation. Our server, RIO, went ABOVE AND BEYOND to assure I had an amazing birthday. Thoughtful, attentive, kind, and even serenaded me for my birthday! Do yourself a favor and request him as your server!
The food and drinks were amazing. I had a Bloody Mary with a full on shrimp cocktail garnish. Delicious! My entree was the Lobster Stuffed Mahi Mahi. Was cooked to perfection, the hollandaise sauce and Wasabi mash and asparagus were all wonderfully complimentary flavors. I worked for years in a fine dining Seafood restaurant, and can confidently say this was a top notch plate. Mahalo Nui Loa Fish Hopper and especially Rio for making my birthday dinner epic!
Was a great choice to come with friends for a good dinner
Our server Tyler took great care of us in spite of restaurant being quite busy
Grumpy waitress two menu items unavailable and very mediocre food
Great food would come again
Beautiful View, Wonderful Food, and our server Tammie was a ton of fun!
Great location, very good food & service. Plan to return!!
Really good food - one of the only restaurants we found here that was wonderful.
Excellent service. Food is great. I live in Kona and this is my go to place for dinner. I highly recommend.
Absolutely love this place!!!!!!!! Amazing food great staff! We had a blast will return every chance we are in town!
The parmesan crusted mahi mahi was to die for. The ribeye was good. Toasted coconut lava flow amazing
Great spot! Noah made great menu recommendations and dessert was delicious!
Great food, super location. Rio, our server, was attentive but not overbearing. We were able to relax and enjoy!!
The filet minion and sweet mash with a Cesar salad and finishing up with crème brûlée was AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS
Wonderful Seafood. The Ono was cooked perfectly. Enjoyed the island atmosphere.
Food was mediocre at best. Bland, boring, and one of the worst meals we’ve had in Hawaii. We really wanted to like it.
Our server and bus staff were great, so we still tipped well.
We had a reservation for 8pm, showed up at 7:30, and got right in at a nice table a good distance from other diners. We ate a variety between the 4 of us, and all were very satisfied. We’ve been to Fish Hopper many times over several years of visiting Kona and were always impressed!
The view was wonderful, the service was excellent (thank you server), and the food was great. This was just what we wanted/needed after our drive over the Saddle Road. Delicious and fun. Thank you.
Excellent customer service, delicious fresh seafood & veggies, homemade desserts to die for!
Our food was amazing. Had Muncheong and Opakapaka with Risotto. Great!
Staff was great, seating was wonderful. Thank you!
Had reservations but table was not ready. Fish & Chips tasted “fishy”. Service took too long.
Good is consistently good. Service is very good. Great manager.
Good lunch menu. We enjoyed the ocean view and ahi. Not a bad spot for a tourist that has finished shopping at the Kona Shops.
Great service and great food!!
