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.

Restaurant was amazing. Mugs for coffee where a little cheaper than expected.
Excellent service with outstanding sunset views over the water. Highly recommend! The food was excellent I had the prime rib with the 4 ox lobster tail and key lime pie for dessert. Don’t miss it😁
Most consistent restaurant in Kona. Always good. Excellent friendly staff who catered to both our 80 year old and our teens.
Food was excellent. Server was great. Entertainment from On the Rocks was a great addition. I had an issue with my drink and the server was super helpful and took care of everything. It was a wonderful evening. Thank you!
The view was over the top! The food was great and our server Chad took the best care of us! Can’t wait to visit again!
Renee our server was wonderful. Great back up bus boys and servers. Never missed a beat . Sizzling shrimp and seafood chowder outstanding. Generous portions. Sweet potato gnocchi perfect. Ahi tuna salad. Wonderful. Kona ipa smooth and cold. Maitai was very good.
Huggo’s is a staple every time we come to the Big Island! Perfect place for a drink while watching the sunset! Food is really really amazing as well...

Great spot, as it's always been. Tasty food, although the green rice is no better than just plain rice.
We greatly appreciate your support, David! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Chad was a great server. Explained the dishes very well.

An exceptional dining experience, as always! Don’t leave kona without a meal here. The view is beautiful also
Thank you for your great recommendation.
Made a reservation for dinner at sunset. We had the perfect table, next to the railing in a corner so it felt like we had a private table. The waves crashing below was magical :)
Super yummy bread and basil butter!
My partner and I both ordered the ahi poke salad, super tasty, but I did have to add some Tamari (soy sauce) to it.
We shared all three of the sizzling skillets, the mushrooms (our favorite), the cauliflower/Brussels Sprouts, and the garlic shrimp (wish it had a bit more flavor, but it tasted great with the sauce from the mushrooms). We aren’t drinkers, so I can’t give a review of beverages.
As the sun was setting, the torches lining the railing were lit. The location is spectacular!
We were happily full, but decided that we wanted dessert since at home, we don’t eat out a lot.
We ordered the Mauna Kea Cream Pie...it was as big as my face! We were laughing wondering how we were going to finish it...surprisingly we had no problem at all. The macadamia nut ice cream was so yummy!
Our server was sweet and attentive, I appreciated how the whole staff worked together to keep the flow.
Next time we visit the Big Island, this place will definitely be on our list of places to dine at again. Mahalo!
Thank you for visiting us and sharing your experience. We are thrilled to hear your visit was one to remember. We appreciate your support and look forward to your return. Mahalo!
The ambiance was amazing, as was the service. However, I am a bit of a "foodie" and probably a harsher food critic than most. I had the Kampachi and my partner had the Swordfish special. Both were good.. But, for value for money, I would have anticipated a bit different. Would I recommend to a friend?... It was recommended to me by a dear friend... But, I am not so sure..
Thank you for visiting Huggo's and sharing your feedback.
Service was fantastic, food was great, and view was incredible.
Thanks for visiting and leaving us great feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your experience at Huggo's.
Very nice view. Good, friendly and polite service. Food was just ok and prices were a bit steep. My pancakes tasted like the frozen kind that you put into the toaster to heat. For my breakfast the killer view and great table were the saving grace.
Aloha Paul, thank you for visiting and taking the time to share your experience. I am very sorry you didn't enjoy our pancakes. We make our pancakes fresh to order and never use premade or frozen pancakes. We hope that will not deter you from coming back to the "Landmark of Aloha", we hope to serve you again.
Huggo’s was awesome! The setting is very romantic and the food was delicious! We had the sizzling shrimp, teriyaki steak, New York steak, seafood chowder and Kona coffee pie. It was all prepared perfectly. The seafood chowder is soooooo good. There is a reason that this place is on the top of so many “best restaurants” lists. You will not be disappointed!!!
Thank you for visiting Huggo's and sharing your great feedback. With over 50 years serving the Big Island, we are grateful for supporters like you. We appreciate your support and look forward to serving you again soon.

Upon arrival at Huggo's for our Valentine's meal we were seated promptly at our designated time and were shown to a table for two overlooking the ocean. Spectacular! My wife and I ordered the fritto misto to share as an appetizer. Our waitress Jessica was right when she advised that it was a perfect size to share. My wife ordered the shrimp fettucini and once again I was steered in the right direction by Jessica and had the Kailua Bay cioppino. Both meals were excellent and we enjoyed them immensely. There was live music while eating and the sound level and mix of songs were perfect for the occasion. Unfortunately after two mai tai's and a bottle of wine we were unable to do justice to ordering a dessert. Parking could have been an issue but due to my wife's keen eye she spotted a car leaving Huggo's parking lot situated across Alii Dr. and parking was not longer a problem for us. We enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend this restaurant.
Many thanks for your awesome feedback and recommendation. We are thrilled to hear your Valentine's Day celebration was one to remember. We appreciate you taking the time share your experience and we are happy Jessica provided excellent service to you. We hope to serve you again soon.
