I too have been going to the Kona Brew Pub since it first opened. And has it has grown it has just gotten better. It's pretty much always crowded - no reservations - but worth the wait! We always take our out-of-town visitors there and everyone always loves the food, the beer & the ambiance!

When you are in the mood for getting together with friends over beer and beer food, this is a great place. The pupu (appetizer) selection is good for chasers, I really like their mozzarella, tomato, basil, drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Of course,the beer selection is the star of the show. You come for the beer!

Sorry to say, but the only thing enjoyable about this restaurant is the great local beers. Dining outside, you deal with flies, the salad lettuce was old and the pizzas are expensive and awful. . .undercooked because there is too much stuff on them. If they cook it to finish the dough, they burn it and that's all you taste.... More

One of the few places I know I can recommend as the beer and pizza are not going to disappoint. There is often a wait for a table but we know that and plan for it. Now that vegetation has grown up you would not know the busy street is right below.

All of my experiences (and there are many) at the Kona Brewery have been positive. I prefer to sit outside as I enjoy the lush landscaping.. You are unaware that Kuakini Highway is just a few feet away. My current favorite dish is the strawberry salad with a slice of the pizza of the day. It's a very popular site... More

If you are a mac& cheese lover this is the place. Honestly, I've never had a bad meal here. Beer is great and so is the service.

Close to everything and always good food and service. The family favorite is the spinach and strawberry salad. Great place for the local beer and innovative sandwiches.
