Great sunset. Food grossly overpriced and mediocre. A better value for the food/view is Rays on the Bay.

Right on the shoreline. Every table has a wonderful view. Usually packed, so table choice regarding sun or shade is iffy. For the crowds, the service was very good and the food excellent.

We came to hear the band on Friday night, had a great time sitting at a side table on the edge of the water, watching the surf break on the rocks, and the moon set. Good music, good atmosphere. Great place.

We shared several lupus and all were good. Sitting with our toes in the sand and a couple of cocktails made this a great way to kick off yet another Hawaii vacation.

Dine outside, right at the water ... nice view. Food delish. Location is key. Reservations suggested.

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."
