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."

If you looking for a place to stop for a drink or some island style food and take in the sunset, it does not get much better than this. Situated in the ideal spot on a rocky cove you get it all. Welcoming and friendly service, great cocktails and good food.
We stopped for sundowners on the way back to Waikoloa and could not have picked a better location to watch the sunset, with a drink and island atmosphere, so laid back and chilled and a view to relish.

We needed to grab a bite before heading to the airport, and were on a tight schedule, so I spoke with the waitress before ordering, and she said they could have our food ready in time. Overall, the staff was terrific. The food was made extra special by the beautiful bayside view from the rocks. It was a nice way to wrap up that part of our vacation.

A location for a bar does not get much better than the one occupied by Huggo's on the Rocks. Great place to relax in the afternoon or watch sunsets. Drinks could use a little more alcohol content, but the mai-tais taste very good anyway. Offers a decent selection of bar fare at prices typical to the islands. Definitely worth a visit.

Great view of the ocean complete with feet in the sand. There was entertainment and the food was great. The restaurant further down closer to town seemed to be a bit less expensive than the same named place on the other side.

The atmosphere speaks for itself! Beautiful ocean view and great live music! Fantastic drinks! I had the Macadamia nut martini and my husband loved the Kona Brewery beers that they serve here. Tiki torches and sand bring a “Cocktail” feel to the bar.
