Description: 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."

We had a 30 minutes wait at the bar. The staff was so friendly we decided to eat at the bar. We shared the poopoo platter. Very filling and delicious. The drinks were really good too.

Location, location, location! Good food too! Get there before sunset for glorious views. Unfortunately you will need to wait since reservations are not accepted.

Nice location, right on the beach. The mai tai's here are excellent. The staff was also really good.
A little pricey but worth it. If you can't afford to come here, then you probably can't afford to come to Hawaii either.

Such a fun little restaurant. It's right on the ocean so you can watch the waves while you eat. They have a cool area where the tables are in sand but still inside the restaurant. We came here about 3 times. Sometimes they had live music. Great food and drinks too. Their frozen coconut dessert was pretty awesome.

We stopped here for lunch and sat in the area where the floor is sand. This caused some fun getting in and out of the table - when you sat down your chair sank about 6 inches. Ordered food and drinks. I had the Poke special, partner had the fried rice bowl with beef. Both were outstanding. Service was quick and prompt - also very friendly. Two beers and two lunches came to $46. Not bad for waterfront. Looks like it can be very crowded at dinner.
