This restaurant is not on the beach and doesn't have a view of the ocean. But it has some of the best pizza ever. On our first visit our server was Dion. On the second visit a few days later he remembered us and even our prior order! Great service and a pleasant outdoor atmosphere. Very enjoyable place. Brewery tours... More

I really enjoy their Big Wave beer so we thought we would stop by. Great little place to eat and have some drinks. They have a great little beer sampler i would recommend. Food was good too. Only problem is that beer flows easy ;-) Great place to stop at.

The Wild Mushroom pizza was yummy, shared a 12" and it was enough for two people. Had a beer sampler and everything was good.

We came for the tour, not the restaurant. We like Kona Brewery beer. My husband: Castaway; for myself: Fire Rock. So before the tour, we were early, we went to the bar within the restaurant and had a tall one. The tour was great, helped Immensely by the competent, very personable guide who whisked us through the various buildings, not... More

We spent a week on The Big Island with friends. We went to Kona Brewing Company for dinner. Tourism is big in Hawaii, right? Our waitress, Erin, was the most unresponsive and boring waitress we've had yet. The food was mediocre at best. Of course the brew was good but you can get that anywhere on the island. Find a...

Their lunch of pizza and salad was the best deal on the whole island, not to mention the best tasting! Sitting outside was pleasant, service was awesome. Beer choices were varied and tasted wonderful! It is a must for ant time we go to the Big Island ;0)

We have tried numerous Kona Brewing beers on the mainland, so when my husband and I planned a trip to the Big Island, this was a no-brainer of a stop for us. If you like beer, and it doesn't matter if it's a pale ale, a lager or something in between, I would be surprised if you didn't find something... More

The beer was awesome (of course), but I was shocked to discover the best fish tacos in HI. I also got lucky and walked in just as a brewery tour was starting. Someone had just canceled so I got lucky with no reservation. The staff was great. I picked up an insulated growler that kept my beer cold for an... More
