What a great place even if you're not a big beer drinker. The pizza is fantastic and what a great variety. I also love the fresh fish tacos. What a great menu.

Wife and I flew over to the Big Island for a day and had lunch at Kona Brewery. Food was excellent and the beer was the freshest i believe i've ever had.

Later lunch after morning of scuba - but still crowded with 15 minute wait for a table. Since it was Good Friday, I had the bacon Mac n cheese - hold the bacon. Creamy and spicy (pepper jack cheese?) backed bubbly hot. My husband had the shrimp tacos which he said were great! Paired with a couple of the local... More

Commercialized, but surprisingly good food and great seasonal beer on tap that you can't get elsewhere (ex. lemongrass ginger was terrific). Some servers are better than others, but it was an overall good experience. No ocean views, although they have nice landscaping and tables outside (and inside).

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
