Stopped here after checking out menu-they had great variety -poke nachos are killer-best I’ve had! Would just eat that for my meal-I had fish tacos-a salad was also ordered-coconut shrimp everyone enjoyed food-we ordered volcano drink-which was good-more for show—their specialty mai tai was awesome

So my wife and I stopped here during a trip in July. Excellent open air place, where you can have a bite, watch people and the sunset. Had a nice meal of fish tacos. Reasonable prices, good service. All good!

Went to the Fish Hopper for lunch while in Kailua Kona. Ordered the calamari appetizer and was very disappointed. The calamari was nice pieces and plentiful, but the breading tasted like uncooked flour. Definitely should have been fried longer. My husband had a Mahi sandwich...More

The kids meal were a decent price and you could have fruit with it instead of fries which is a nice change. I can’t recall what we ate, but I remember that we all enjoyed our meal!
