Definitely Worth the stop

We stopped here because we like small brew houses/pubs. We expect more from the beer than the food most the time. But we were very impressed with the service, the food was really good and good price (*get the macadamia nuts*). We had nachos, chili macadamia nuts,& fish bites plus two samplers for... read more

If you like good beer, then this is the place to go! They have a selection to fit the taste of anyone who likes beer. My wife says they have a fantastic Lilikoi Margarita. We were very impressed. Oh yeah, the food is pretty good, also.

Had a miserable experience with Kona Brews down Kona way, so the hour+ drive to Waimea had a lot riding on it. We drove through sun and rain and over hill and dale, and Big Island Brewhaus didn't disappoint. The food was excellent, the service is better, and the beer is actually made in the back shed. They all taste... More

On the recommendation of a TripAdvisor review, we headed over to Big Island Brewhaus for lunch and, of course, great beers! We were not disappointed. Under the hospitable care of Kaylee Bird at the bar, we started with a shared plate of Astro Nachos (very, very good), then to decide which of their many beers we wanted to order as... More

Stopped here to have lunch, and as a homebrewer to sample some of their beers. Had two different stouts, both were chewy and rich just like I like them! Also had the pale ale which was pretty good as well. They were out of some of the beers which must mean they are really good I am guessing. The food... More

It's a small place, but it packs a solid punch and offers fantastic craft beers. How fantastic? They've won some serious awards. I tried the beers and trust me, they earned them. The Paliono Pale Ale and the Overboard IPA are among the best craft beers I've ever had. If you find yourself on the Big Island, head to Waimea... More

We were just passing by and getting hungry. I looked it up, it had decent reviews and we stopped for lunch. It was such a cute place with a very friendly staff! I had the ahi tuna tacos and they were outstanding. My husband had the regular fish tacos and they were great as well. If Waimea was closer to... More

I cannot say enough good things about the food & Margaritas here…I don't drink beer (my husband LOVED the beer, he tried several - they brew it in a shed behind the restaurant!) We ate a variety of appetizers & shared tacos…everything we had was amazing! Try the

My husband is really into craft beers so we stopped here on a whim one night. The food was fabulous - especially the fish tacos. He really enjoyed the brews and even got to take some back to our condo. The parking is a bit sparse but the food is well worth it. We ended up going there again after... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here because he is into local beers... however, we ate lunch here also. We both had burritos and they were great! Out waitress was very nice and even recommended a place called Tex's drive in for some local desserts and shopping in the area. Thank you :)
