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.

Location is excellent. The music from next door was perfect!
The drinks were a bit watery for their price. Three out of the four main courses were outstanding. Unfortunately, I had to send mine (sizzling shrimp) back three times to have then blackened. There were outstanding.

The food presentations and service was excellent.

It’s a bit over priced for their cocktails.

Location, location, location! Huggo's is beautifully situated on the waterfront with lovely views in all directions. We highly recommend you request a waterfront table to totally enjoy your meal. The food and drinks are fine, but it's really about the ambiance as the waves meet the rocks below.

The food was awesome, but I deeply feel they are short of serving staffs here. There is a live band playing at a bar next to the restraint, which was impressive too. In general I really like the food here, but it might be a little pricy.

I am usually leery of "tourist" by the water restaurants especially ones that have been around for a long time. I wanted a place to watch the sunset and Huggos did not disappoint, not at all. We not only witnessed the sun slipping into the horizon but saw that green flash! Service food and drinks were outstanding. I had spent the days looking for the perfect margarita and they served it here. We also had local abalone - really good. Poke fresh. Salad super fresh.

Had a wonderful evening at Huggo's. We were seated out on the patio and had a spectacular view of Kailua Bay. We ordered a Mai Tai and enjoyed the sunset which was spectacular. Our waited was vey knowledgeable and thoroughly explained each of the entres. The food was brought our hot and was attractively plated. The Mahi Mahi was cooked to perfection and the mashed potatoes and vegetables were delicious as well. We shared a Hawaiian Lime pie that tasted out of this world and just sat and enjoyed the beautiful setting of this place. My only comment is that the dinners were very pricy. $44.00 per entre was a little more than most the other restaurants we have been to on this trip.
