Seafood
Chart a course to Huggo’s for the finest in surfside dining. Dine just inches above the waves on an open-air lanai. Experience tender beef or prime rib, or try our exquisite island-fresh seafood. And by the way, when we say fresh we mean fresh! Ahi, mahi mahi, ono and other delectable Hawaiian fish are delivered directly to our back door by local fishermen who caught them just hours earlier.

Enjoy artfully prepared selections also influenced by Pacific Rim and Mediterranean styles.

Thanks to Huggo’s on the water location, and its commitment to “aloha” service, diners at Huggo’s will savor influences from Japanese, Chinese and Southeast Asian ports of call. This family owned restaurant has become an island tradition since offering its first seafood platter 45 years ago.

Huggo’s on the Rocks, our next door neighbor, is the perfect location for oceanside cocktails and light fare.

We took out-of-town friends to Huggo's and overall we were very satisfied with the experience. The ambiance was terrific, and our waiter was very attentive and provided a lot of local flavor to our conversations. Drinks were generous and delicious. Only real complaint was about our food, which was mediocre, considering the price. Prime rib that was supposed to be medium rare came out medium well. Lobster tail meal had sides that were different from what we requested. Overall, nothing in the meal stood out. Our guests, though, were very pleased with their first meal on the Big Island, and so we probably would return with other guests.

Romantic and beautiful. The ambiance was perfect for an evening of delicious food and drinks. There was live music and our waiter had terrific personality. I would eat here on many occasions if I lived nearby. I think there isn’t a bad seat in the house. They really use the space well.

My wife and I had dinner here and we were completely disappointed. The food is terrible. My wife had the special which included lobster bisque that tasted like plain tomato soup and the fish was over salted. I had the Signature Teriyaki Steak that was okay. Also in the women's restroom there is only scalding hot water available to wash your hands. According to one of the waitresses the cold water has been broken for awhile. The only good thing this restaurant has going is the location but I would sacrifice location for better food elsewhere.

We had a great server (John) who was knowledgeable about the food and wine so that set our course. The abalone appetizer was great—-I have never had farmed abalone and we rarely see it on the menu so that was a treat. The cioppino was some of the best I have ever had and it was a huge portion. My husband had the short ribs which were also delicious. The atmosphere here is terrific since our table was right over the water of the bay in Kona.

A truly delightful night out at Huggo's! I took my wife out for a birthday dinner and was not disappointed, especially since it was Halloween night and all the employees had great costumes on that really enhanced the energy. We witnessed a stunning sunset, our table was right on the water, we ordered ribs which were prepared exceptionally, and our lovely waitress as Dracula's bride, was great. It may sound like I'm overselling it, but our next visit to Kona will assuredly have a night out to Huggo's!

Went here for a friends birthday and had a table right by the water. Service was good and not overly attentive allowing us to converse. The mushroom appetizer was delicious, drinks were tasty and the entrees were good sized. I ordered the lobster entree (comes with three 4oz tails and two sides) and I was stuffed! The lobster was a little too salty but otherwise everything was good. We went to Huggo’s for breakfast as well one day and sat on the couch-like tables and had an amazing view. Portion sizes for the money was extremely good. I highly recommend Huggo’s and will definitely be back in the future!

We had one of the most enjoyable meals ever! The view of the sunset over the water was amazing, our waiter I.J. was super helpful with everything and we had the best service I have ever had, and I am a super picky (high maintenance) person.
