The food was actually pretty darn good and I enjoyed to brew of the week. I loved the music they played (rock and blues) and had a good lunch at Kona Brewing Co.

The food and beer was amazing. The prices are very reasonable, too, considering Hawaii is very high priced. We had a great time and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere!

This should absolutely be a stop on your trip to Kona, particularly if you're a beer fan. The restaurant is lively and has great atmosphere and tasty food. If you're new to Kona Brewing beers, try the sampler. I'm a big fan of Lava Man, which I've only seen on tap. We had the Brewben Reuben and BBQ pork. Yum!

We stopped by towards the end of the evening. The waiter was friendly and service was a little slow. That was odd in that we got the impression that they wanted us to hurry up and leave. I ordered a pizza that was above average due to the nice choice of toppings. I would only return if I was with... More

We had a very good meal here. The micro-brew beer was excellent. Great local cuisine and character. Parking a little tough, but it is because it is so good. I can live with that. I recommend it.

During our recent 2 week stay on the Big Island, we ate at the Kona Brewing Company 3 times. We love the pizza, especially the Kohala (it has macadamia nuts)! The atmosphere is great and everyone is very friendly.

Great selection of food, beyond basic bar fare. You'll wait with all the other tourists, but service is efficient. Food and of course the beer is worth the wait.

Went here to check out the different Kona brew beers and decided to eat lunch as well. I had the Kona Garden pizza for one, so good. Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the service was very friendly.

We went with a crowd and ordered appetizers (garlic twists), beer samplers, sandwiches, pizza, and salads. Everyone was very pleased with their food order. The staff was attentive and the restaurant was clean and fun. Beer selection was great, too!

This was a fun place and the food great. First kale salad I ever ate and it was great. The service was kind of slow but it's Hawaii so we were not in a hurry. Would eat there again.
