Oceanside Dining in Kona as Compared to the Resorts

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

All of our previous trips to Big Island have been to resorts. We've stayed at Four Seasons, The Fairmont, Hapuna Prince and Marriott Waiklola, and a great B and B on the Hilo side in Honomu. As such, most of our dining experiences have been at or near resorts. Now that we have our own vacation house, it's either go grocery shopping, which for some reason my husband does not seem interested in, or go out for dinner.

It's at least a half hour up the coast to the resorts and we are only a mile from Ali'i Drive and some of the other dining spots in Kona. The service is more casual, the food more basic, thus far, but I am keeping an open mind. With a place like Huggos Restaurant, it's more about the location than the food or service, I suspect.

You can read more in my personal blog today and see more photographs at this link: Huggos Restaurant in Kona Offers Relaxed Dining and View.

Everytime my husband's card has been compromised, a visit to a restaurant preceded it.  The server walked off with the card.   It's not good.  That's why I'm loving Zoosk..where you pay with your card right at the table.  No one takes your card and wanders away.

Huggo's sounds like a good place to enjoy a meal.

The last couple of days I've done quite a bit of traveling and my Bank caught on and froze my account and I had to verify that I knew what was going on. I started in Carmel on Sunday morning driving all the way up the coast of California, then over to Medford in Oregon during the Midnight hours of Monday to Tuesday, there climbing on a plane at 5 AM for Hawaii today. But this was a debit card, not a credit card. Don't know if they do that with a credit card. Hanging out with my grandsons here in Honolulu right now. LOVE Huggos and Huggos on the Rocks and, yes, it's all about the location.

Hi Elizabeth --- ah, finally it's time for a "Happy Hour" post and an umbrella drink.   And talk about an ideal setting too.    

Here's to more "happy" times and less inconvenience.

Chris Ann Cleland I looked up zoosk but it seems to be a dating site. If the restaurant doesn't have a cash register, I don't know how you can prevent them from swiping your data. Not every restaurant uses tabletop credit card machines.

Hella Mitschke Rothwell Oh, they do the same thing with credit cards. Chase was relentless with my card for a while. I'd be in Nordstrom at a counter and have the purchase declined. Call Chase. OK, back on track. Promised me no further trouble. Then next counter at Nordsrom, purchase declined. Continued that way at 2 other counters. Enough to drive you nuts.

Glad to see you made it to Hawaii!

Michael Jacobs Mai Tais are the perfect tropical drink, and they are especially sweet if you order them that way. In Hawaii, you have choices.
