We had a delicious lunch at this seaside restaurant while visiting in Kona. The menu included several daily specials and I ordered the "local plate" of shrimp, ribs, and BBQ with a side of macaroni salad, which sounded good and was. The two large shrimp...More

I didn’t have the warmest welcome when I first came in by a dark haired bartender who was chatting with one of his tables and blocking the only free table in the bar that I’d wanted to sit at. He seemed a bit put off...More

Happened in to the Fish Hopper for breakfast on Mother's day, and had a good meal with very good service. And it didn't feel to heavy on my wallet.

Ate a late breakfast here on our first day in Kona. We weren't very impressed. Food was passable, but wish we would have kept looking. Restaurant is old and needs a really good cleaning and face lift.

Great location with ocean view. The food was well prepared, fairly priced and good wait staff. There is parking behind the restaurant.

Yes. There is a road behind all the restaurant and shops. You can find parking in all the lots that feed the shopping. If one is full just go down the street a little. The downtown Kona area is very compact, so walking... More
