We enjoyed the experience. Great food and drinks. The happy hour is a real deal. The Ahi burger was delicious. The setting is right on the beach with great views and plenty of shade.

We decided to eat in the bar area instead of waiting for a table. The place was busy, so it took a little while to get helped, but once we did, our server was very attentive. We started with drinks. Their mai tais are awesome!...More

We went here for lunch and could have just sat and looked at the view all day. We ordered typical lunch foods of fish tacos, salads, and burgers. The food was average minus a worm in one of the salads. The salad was quickly replaced...More

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."
