Really good place to come and eat at the bar. There seems to always be a wait for a table and the dinner tables are in the sand. We had some great drinks and the fried rice bowl was delicious. Definitely recommend it.

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."
