General Info:
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."

Tourist Trap to be avoided

Huggo's has one thing going for it -- and one thing only: its commanding view of the bay and (unless one of those godawful, Titanic-size cruise ships is parked just off shore) of Kona's famous sunsets. Other than that, there is absolutely no reason to go here. The service is fairly dreadful when it's not just plain amateurish and clueless. The drinks are hugely overpriced the way all the drinks are overpriced along Ali'i Drive, with the difference that Huggo's significantly underpours. (I don't know why the liquor inspector hasn't yanked their license for failing to pour full shots.) Their invented ?tropical? drinks are fairly disgusting even for the genre. We went on two nights, hoping for a decent sunset, and found the ""Hawaiian"" music on both nights to be just shy of pathetic. It's your basic tourist trap and they don't care whether you like it or not -- they know you're probably not going to be there long.

Delicious food VERY expensive.

The food and the view were great and it was a very romantic dinner. However, had it not been our honeymoon we never would have splurged.

Sunset meal to satisfy all the senses

This is a wonderful place for a romantic meal. We sat at the rail at sunset and watched the colors of the sky change as waves crashed on the rocks below. Service was prompt and friendly. The king crab was tasty but hard to extract (they didn't have the tools, and it got messy), so next time I'd order something else--but I would definitely go back. The chardonnay was one of the nicest I've had, and the bread and basil butter was a nice twist on basic fare. The mac nut pie? To die for.

Dining in Paradise

My husband and I had a wonderful romantic dinner at Huggo's. The people are all so friendly and the food is great and this all comes with a stunning view of the ocean. On The Rocks right next to the restaurant provides delightful music too.
