You might ask yourself, “What in the world is a Fish Hopper?” No, it’s not a machine that’s the cousin to the famous Saturday Night Live Bass-O-Matic; it’s the name of one of the best steak and seafood houses on Kona’s Ali‘i Drive. Located across the street from beautiful Kailua Bay, The Fish Hopper in Kona was voted Best Seafood Restaurant two years running by West Hawai‘i Today and is a Kona Coast favorite. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner and featuring fresh seafood, steaks and American favorites with a Pacific Rim flair, The Fish Hopper is also a partner with the Seafood Watch Program, ensuring that all of their seafood is sourced in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way.
