We ate at Kona Brewing Company three different times in the last month. The beer here is great but the big surprise was how good the food was. There were 6 of us in the group and everyone enjoyed their meals each time. The pizza is wood fired with great crust and there are many other options on the menu.... More

The pizza here was great, the beers were very good (their standard beers were actually the least impressive in their lineup), and the atmosphere and wait staff were excellent. The bartenders were hit and miss.

OK so I had a glass of 5 rivers Pinot noir. Wife and other couple all had beer, and they make an amazing variety of excellent beers. But I came back for fish tacos -- nowhere are the better on Hawaii. The pizza here is excellent as well. What's not to like? Well if you want to go from excellent... More

The best way to be adventurous is to get a few samplers so you can try as many brews as you’d like without committing to a full pint. We sat at the bar and ordered a margarita pizza to munch on during our time. Overall, a nice break from the sun and beach.

This is a popular restaurant so go early to avoid a long wait for a table. Lots of great choices for both beer and food. Pizza seems to be the most popular item here but I had a fantastic French Dip sandwich. Their homemade chips are delicious.

Kona Brewing Company Pub & Brewery has a nice, informal, outdoor/indoor restaurant with pretty typical, well-prepared pub fare. The service is professional and friendly. The brewery tour is interesting, if you enjoy that kind of thing. Kona Brewery is arguably no longer a true micro-brewery since something like 30% is apparently owned by Budweiser, but that should matter only to... More

All the standards are at the grocery store but you can't get the good beers in the states so you gotta go straight to the source! So good we went twice, and for those who don't like beer or aren't old enough, the house root beer is phenomenal!

Long wait to be seated so we ordered take-out pizza. Ready in 20 minutes. Listened to live musician while we were waiting (Sunday night). Had great pizza and beer back at our condo. Place looks like a lot of fun. Great atmosphere. Will go back for the brewery tour.
