Hugo von Platen Luder BioHuggo’s founder and Hawaii native, Hugo von Platen Luder’s path to becoming Hawaii Island restaurateur extraordinaire was circuitous ­­literally and figuratively speaking!

When he was 14, Punahou School sponsored a summer travel program called “The Rover Boys”, that took 30 students, via buses, to tour 36 of the 48 States. Then at the age of 16, his parents allowed him a break from the prestigious Punahou School on Oahu for an adventure of a lifetime. They sent him off to circle the globe on a Merchant Steamer, out of Honolulu, under the close watch of the ship’s ca

Our Story

Huggo’s opened its doors in 1969 as a casual gathering spot where a good steak, fresh fish and a pile-it-on salad bar quickly established the restaurant as a Kona classic. With its stunning waterfront location, Huggo’s has since earned a reputation as Kona’s leading restaurant for just-caught seafood, spectacular sunsets and casual elegance. The award-winning restaurant features daily menu specials, fresh fish and its signature teriyaki steak, a menu favorite for nearly 50 years.

Had the best time at Huggo’s... again. We were sitting next to a lovely couple, Roland and Shannon (who we swore she was really Pink the rock star.) Great food, drinks and wonderful food. Much to our surprise upon asking for our bill we were told by our delightful server, Shorty that Roland and Shannon had paid for our dinner. Totally unexpected but what a way to pay it forward! Wish we could return the favor and will make sure we pay it forward in honor of you. Thank you! Brad, Richard and Shelley
A friend is there visiting family and it looks like your kind of place I was thinking! Can you hear the waves? Smiling at the thought!!!!!
Aloha Ladies Lola here ........Thanks for being so patient with us during this time we have a theme and it is women of music..... if you need more information please feel free to reach out to me...... and date is the same july 25th
What a great dining experience! Thank you Marley! Professionalism, personality and great service made for a spectacular evening. We expected good food and a view, we got much more than that!
Had a wonderful meal at Hugo’s tonight! The Parmesan garlic bread was fantastic! The dinner had lobster, clams, calamari, and shrimp. The sauce was so tasty!
Huggo's...always our fav spot while visiting Kona! Great folks, food and libations! Also, a fantastic view!🤩🤙🤙🤙🤙🤙Five shakas!
