Came here with family. Mom, aunt, uncle, wife and two year old son. Very good food. Only complaint was the blandness of the Ahi dish. I had the special, which was a white fish stuffed with sweet peas, crab and mascarpone cheese. That was amazing!...More

The food, drinks and service are all good. The reason to go here is the view of the bay. We enjoyed fish tacos and a couple of beers and listened to the guitar player. Kick off your sandals and wiggle your toes in the sand...More

Nice location and view. Had some great glazed shrimp wrapped in butter lettuce. Surprisingly tasty! The downside was it was quite dark where our table was and not as clean as I was comfortable with.

This restaurant probably has one of the best location in Kailua-Kona. It is in the center of the walkable town, and on the sea-side of the street. It is a great place to sit outdoor in the shade with a cocktail. The food is also...More

Wonderful place to relax a bit with cold drink in hand. Happy hour menu 3-5pm has reasonably priced munchies while taking in a couple drinks. Stick to the beer and cocktails tho, does not have an extensive choice in wines.

We discovered Huggo's on the Rocks four years ago when we were in Kona and were happy to find the experience just as great the second time. The music, the view, the fact that you are literally sitting with your toes in the sand.....all of...More

Yes they do. It appeared when we were there that one half of the restaurant takes walkins and the other half reservations. We had reservations.

Opened in 1998 in the waterfront location adjacent to Huggo's fine dining restaurant, On the Rocks is a come as you are, kau kau (eat) great food with sand between your toes, kick back and enjoy great island entertainment center of fun on Hawaii Island. "After operating Huggo's restaurant for 18 years, we had the opportunity to purchase the vacant lot right next door and we jumped at it," Eric says. "The concept is what you see today - a casual bar and restaurant set literally on the rocks and sand of Kailua-Bay. Like many locals, we were tired of driving 20 miles or more up the coast to enjoy this sort of relaxed resort ambiance and decided to create just that right here in town."
