    Fantastic service and food! We had kids ages 6-16, plus adults who wanted to try local specialties and there was food perfect for everyone. Outdoor seating and a fun atmosphere.

    I've eaten at the Fish Hopper for going on 22 years and refer everyone who wants a great meal and friendly staff to eat there, too. Tyler was our waiter and a more professional waiter could not be asked for! He spent time explaining to my guests what they needed to understand and gave his suggestions, too. Since I've been eating at the Fish Hopper for so long, I have had most of their menu EXCEPT the pasta selections. This visit, I chose the seafood pasta and it was to die for! If you're in Kona, please enjoy a meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) and you'll go away with wonderful memories. And the views are as spectacular as the food!

    We went here twice during our weeklong stay. The tuna stack was that good. The mai tais were also outstanding. Definitely go for sunset. It’s gorgeous.

Discover Kailua-Kona

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, is known for its white sand beaches and beautiful weather. Most days of the year are sunny and dry because it is on the leeward side of the island. This dry, sunny weather is ideal for visiting the open bars that line the streets near the beaches. Kailua-Kona's signature Kona coffee is grown locally, and early risers will see that having a cup of joe is one of the most popular things to do early in the day. The Kailua-Kona area was originally a sleepy fishing village, and seafood continues to be the most popular type of cuisine. You'll also find opportunities to attend a traditional Hawaiian luau, featuring roasted pork, pineapple and plenty of alcohol. The local specialty, Mai-Tai, and handcrafted ales are also brewed right on the island.
