The Kona Brewing Co. is a lively busy touristy restaurant serving good beer in warm glasses and a descent pizza. Service was friendly but seemed overwhelmed. We had a forty minute wait to get seated and I’m not sure it was worth it? I hate beer served in a warm glass, that ends it for me, I would... read more

We had an extempore visit to Kona Brewery and Pub, and it turned out to be the best restaurant we visited during our trip to the Big Island. They had very exiting beers to sample, we liked the one with a hint of passion fruit on a taste. Also the food was of very high quality, better than on the... More

Good service, good beer and good pizza. Nice garden setting and the waitress was great. She knew her beers and could judge her customers tastes for recommendations. We have eaten here before and will continue to go back for more.

Being a beer fanatic I was excited to visit the Kona Brewing Company. The choice of beer and knowledge of the waiters is excellent, it didn't let me down. The beer garden has a nice atmosphere and the menu looked great but we only had a slice of pizza as we were not overly hungry. It was a shame that... More

My wife and I passed this brewery while we were in the local bus. This is a small brewery. A staff of six pumps 310,000 gallons of beer each year. My favorite Kona Brewing product is Fire Rock Pale Ale. Wailua Wheat is one of my wife’s favorite Kona Brewing beers. Description: The brewery began brewing and packaging beer in... More

I have been drinking their beer for years. We tried their outdoor pub for the pizza and beer. It was awesome. No ocean views but it is like eating in a tropical garden, they have done a nice job with their outdoor section. The pizza was good and i tried some specialty brews in a flight of beers. Poi beer,...

Before our visit to the Big Island of Hawaii, we researched and cross checked, in various sources, where we wanted to have dinner on numerous nights during our vacation. The Kona Brewing Company was one we selected early on during our stay as it felt like beer night. We held out for an outside table as it was a beautiful... More

One of the best meals we had on The Big Island. $5 to do the brewery tour and you get to do beer tastings at the end. Great value, stay for lunch or dinner , the food was beautiful, we had pizza and salad, highly recommend it.
