Yummy food! The biscuits n gravy w/ chicken parm is fantastic! Breakfast burrito also a favorite! Don't miss the perfectly prepared hollandaise either. So many great breakfast items. Wonderful service. Amazing view of Kailua Bay with good people watching too. Great happy hour specials at the bar as well. Even clean bathrooms, which are few and far between in this... More

Went to breakfast here the first day in Kona. This restaurant said they had the best breakfast in Kona. After eating there I'm hoping that's not true since I have five more days here. I had the Kalua pork omelette and my wife had the crab eggs Benedict. The omelette was supposed to be a three egg version but if... More

We went here on a whim. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We had the poke nachos and for mains had the scallop risotto and the Parmesan crusted mahi mahi The food was very good but this is not a restaurant is you are on a budget

We ate lunch here on our first day and dinner on our last night. The fresh catch, tuna & sanddaps we're excellent. The bar tender & waitstaff were helpful in making both our drink (they have a full bar with lots of specialty drinks) & dinner selections. We waited for a table on the ledge the second time but the... More

Next day I had a macadamia nut crusted fish and my partner had a seafood sallad. The food kept on amazing... More

We were a little desperate to get a reservation for someplace to eat on Valentines Day. We got a reservation here. The Nacho poki appetizers were good. The fish entrees were overcooked, and we had to flag down a server, first to get us utensils and water, and then later on for a glass of wine and to clean off... More

Pretty much anywhere we go, if there's fish & chips on the menu. The ono fish & chips was very good! Nice restaurant and good service too. We had been to the Fish Hopper 3 years ago and found it good this time too. My wife and I reserve one place in Victoria and a food truck in Uclulet on... More

We have eaten at Fish Hopper a number of times. It is always good. The location is excellent as almost all the tables have a beautiful ocean view. I recommend a reservation in the evening. The service is good and the menu is varied. We always have a fish entree and have not been disappointed. This year we realized that... More
