My friend was having a birthday! So we went to Huggo's for a lovely Oceanside dinner. Great drinks and the Pasta was supreme.

We stopped by for Happy Hour. Started with a Hawaiian Rainbow drink which was just o.k. Switched to the Mai Tai and it was much better. Each cost only $5 ! Then we decided to order some pupu's off the happy hour menu. One mini nachos and a beef taco each. The mini nachos were so so but the taco's... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice breakfast at Hugo's. The service was nice, food tasty, but a little on the pricey side.($35 for two, breakfast and coffee)

Was here early November 2016. Food was good, great view, service mediocre. Gave the server a Visa gift card to pay for our meal, approximately $35, but after quite some time she came to us saying the Visa gift card was not accepted for some reason. We gave her a credit card and paid. We used that card in other... More

Our family has gone 3 times in less than a week. The fried rice bowl is amazing! The staff is helpful, courteous, and wait times are not long. Great atmosphere and fun live music!

We stopped by for a couple drinks. They had live music, a great Happy Hour menu and is situated on a nice spot over the ocean. Great spot for watching a beautiful Hawaiian sunset.

So glad we ate here. Great atmosphere, beautiful setting, good service, and the second best meal we had on the island (behind the actual Huggo's). Get the Mahi Mahi fish tacos. Amazing.

We had a great time at Huggos! My family and I had an excellent server and got to listen to really talented live musicians. I ordered a taco salad which was above average. My dad ordered fish tacos and said they were average. We all had drinks and they were very good. The best was our family dessert! It was... More

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."
