We had an amazing anniversary dinner here looking out over the water. We had Rissoto with large scallops cooked to perfection. My husband had the Parmesan encrusted ono so good and definitely get the crab stack appetizer! Fantastic!! Entrees are around $30 but they are almost everywhere but this place is a stand out for quality!

Had Sunday Easter dinner here with 11 year olds. Fabulous views of ocean Harbour and very friendly and accommodating staff. We had one child that is a very picky eater and they were completely accommodating on changing the menu item to fit his request and did so in a friendly manner.

The Fish Hopper is a prime Kailua location for watching all the ocean activities of boats coming and going from the pier. The food is very American cuisine and served with aloha.

Sure the food is good, but the service is atrocious. Maybe just for locals, I don't know, but if they treat tourists the same I can't imagine they would frequent Fish Hopper. We live here, we dine out. Four out of the last five visits to this restaurant we experienced horrible service. The most recent visit: we walked out after no one came to our table, we had been there almost 10 minutes - not okay. It was happy hour and it wasn't even busy yet at 5pm, on a Wednesday. After dinner, at another restaurant, we walked past Fish Hopper and chatted with the sidewalk greeter. We told him of our experience earlier, it was the third time that week that he heard the same story. We are never going there again, neither is anyone we know.
