Great beer, good food!

We ate at Big Island Brewhaus after a strenuous hike, and we were overall pretty satisfied. The beer was delicious! We got the Red Giant - wow! The food was tasty - I got a grass fed slider, and my husband got a burrito that he seemed to like. The only thing is the prices. For Happy Hour, our... read more

This was a great stop. The menu is classic for a brewhaus. The sample boards of the local brews is a great place to start. Try the fishbites. Plenty to share. Burgers were down just the way we like them. We enjoyed all the local color from Crandon. He made great suggestions for Brews and dinner. We do this again... More

Pub food with a flair. Very accommodating to a family with a young child. The 5 of us found menu items to our liking, and the beer drinkers enjoyed the locally made brews. I would definitely return to this pub!

We are not drinkers, we came for the food. We had eaten here last year and sat outside at the picnic tables. The service was slow then, but we had read the reviews and expected that. This time it was raining and my daughter was cold so we decided to go inside. We stood by the counter for about 10... More

We had got off the airplane and were driving to Hilo, looking for our first Ohana food, cruzing quickly by the North coast resorts. Seeing great reviews for Big Island Brewhaus and famished after 7 hours of airplane food, we took the left turn in Waimea into the Brewhaus parking lot. What a joy! Great crafted beer and fabulous fish... More

We love micro breweries and this one was our favourite on the Big Island. Lunch was super fresh, and seemed home made it was soooo good.

Very good beer and atmosphere. Usually crowded. We liked the White Mountain Porter but there is something for everyone.

The food was lacklustre and the beer without distinction. Fish tacos were ok but just ok. Bean burrito was mostly rice. Service was friendly but we won't be back. Too much good competition.

While I highly recommend their delicious gourmet hamburgers, there is a lot to explore on this menu. Shy away from the Mexican food as it lacks flavor, but all the other dishes we have tried from vegetarian to beef have been delicious. We love stopping here for lunch anytime we are in Waimea.
