We stopped in for happy hour 3pm-5pm. View was great. Perfect spot for happy hour or casual dinner by the water.

Long wait, a bit noisy, expensive, but worthwhile because of the view. I can’t remember anything super memorable about the food. The service was experienced and friendly.

Visiting in June 2018. Food was expensive for what we ordered & was just ok. We tried to eat local but this felt more like a chain restaurant. Only bonus going for it is that it is right on the water.

Ate here after we got in to our condo and I had the Taco Salad with Beef and it was fresh and filling. Hit the spot after a long day of flying!

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."
