We went for lunch with another couple. The food and service was great. Had parking very close by. Weather was great which was an added bonus. There were large umbrellas over the tables to keep the sun off you. A relaxed laid back atmosphere.

We have always had good food and good service at Huggo's on the Rocks--neither outstanding, but certainly very good. Happy hour gives a selection of draft beers for $2.50. The location is great: wild surf in the winter, mild in the summer.

I must admit I went here several times during my stay and it is a perfect venue for the island. Casual, friendly, super food (yay for grass-fed beef and gluten free alternatives!), good entertainment and if you sit down near the front, you can dine...More

The worst and the server!! No refill on water and the food was over rated! Will not recommend it to anyone. They said it was in the top ten and they weren't even busy!

Huggos gets good ratings from customers and there is a reason why--good food, good service and location. We ate breakfast there and had two later meals from left-overs. Cheerful waitstaff bring you banana macadamia nut muffins--hot--when you first sit down. The plate of food was...More

We enjoyed the experience. Great food and drinks. The happy hour is a real deal. The Ahi burger was delicious. The setting is right on the beach with great views and plenty of shade.

We decided to eat in the bar area instead of waiting for a table. The place was busy, so it took a little while to get helped, but once we did, our server was very attentive. We started with drinks. Their mai tais are awesome!...More

We went here for lunch and could have just sat and looked at the view all day. We ordered typical lunch foods of fish tacos, salads, and burgers. The food was average minus a worm in one of the salads. The salad was quickly replaced...More

My husband and I went here for lunch after visiting the beach. We got a seat right on the water. The tables are in the sand but it was very relaxing. I had the bbq sandwich! It was amazing! I had the salad that they...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."
