Great selection of IPAs. Food was ok, but loved the 'locals' bar. Casual, our kind of bar 😊 Service was great. Went back a few times.

We ate here with a large group. The selection of house brews was very good at very good prices. The food was decent, not outstanding. The service was friendly and efficient. There are not a lot of choices for good food in Waimea, and I would put this place fairly high on the list.

I usually love going to a brew house and sampling beers along withe great food but this place was not one of them. The location next to a busy road means a lot of noise which gives the outside area a weird atmosphere and the fencing then means that the indoor seating is quite dark and dinghy. A real shame...

We spent 1/2 -1/3 of the price of our other meals on BI here. The atmosphere is not great (inside very hot, outside next to the busy road). The food, however, is very good, has large portions, and is very cheap. They will have a beer style for almost any person, including my choice of Belgian strong ale (golden sabbath).... More

We went to Kona 8 months ago.. Forgot to write the review...My husband and I loved this place! Had a flight to try all beers..fantastic. Had the Kung pao macadamia nuts, chile relleno and fish bites. The mahi fish bites melted in your mouth they were so good, we had to order another! A local hangout place too! Small place... More

Tried this restaurant on the recommendation of a Fodor's travel book. Everything we ordered was very good. Seat yourself atmosphere. We sat at the outside picnic tables. Service was quick and friendly. Margarita was tasty. Have to try the wonton taco (probably our favorite). The kahlua and romaine were another favorite. Glad we stopped here.

This is a great though a bit pricy stop for lunch. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food quite good and the brew selection is excellent. Indoor or outdoor eating. Plenty of food, large portions so if you wish to share your dish you don't need to feel skimped.

I love craft beer and like to try the local scene whenever possible. We have went to Kona Brewing a few times, however, they lost me as a customer a while ago. We stumbled on the Big Island Brewhaus and at first I was not very impressed by its appearance and almost drove on by. Now, on our 3rd visit,... More

This place is amazing in every way. The food is great, the service is great & the beers are phenomenal. I have never had a bad experience here. One day they are gonna have to get a bigger place with more parking. Don't be scared to park nearby & walk if the lot is full.

It's really refreshing to start finding amazing food on the Big Island! This is one of the best places, where everything is local and the flavors are done really well. Great fish tacos and fries. The broiled tomato is a MUST! A lot of things looked amazing but there were only two of us... take friends and try more of... More
