We love to come here for lunch. They have a great slice of pizza and salad lunch for only 10 dollars. Lots of their beer is on tap. Plus they will give you tastes if you aren't sure. Staff is friendly and quick. We come here for lunch several times when we are in Kona.

A good menu with lots of varied food choices, and of course beer products. There is a souvenir store. Not expensive, I recommend eating on the patio, a very leisurely atmosphere. Also recommend using your GPS to get there, it is in a commercial area. Come before or between peak times so you don't have a problem parking your car... More

After reading some of the reviews of this place, we were skeptical about going. There are a lot of reviews here that say the service is lousy. our service was great! Pizza was great, and a fantastic selection of their beers. I don't know what the nay-Sayers were expecting, but I would recommend this to all my friends. If you... More

Food was good - I hade the caprise and Ahi Ahi appi! It was all great and sitting outdoors is the way to go. The band was setting up when we were leaving but what a great atmosphere. There were kids outside but I wouldn't really bring your kids - keep this an adult outing!

This is usually our last stop before we go to the airport and go home. The slice and a salad is just right for lunch. This trip I had the black sand stout and it was delicious! Really fun to sit outside sometimes you can even see a mongoose!

The beer here is great and quite varied. They do a good job of mixing up seasonal brews as well as maintaining good quality old time standards. Food is also solid. Food gets a B+ relative to most restaurants and an A relative to other bar food. Good variety of both traditional bar food and healthy options to provide choices... More

We weren't too sure about it as we drove into an industrial-looking parking lot between long, low buildings showing back docks. But once we walked past the giant brewing vats and into the restaurant, we understood the fuss. The restaurant was tucked away behind a lush tree line sexluding the diners from the hustle-bustle of Kailua traffic at 5pm. The... More

Stopped here for lunch-Noisy ,crowded but a fun place .Pizza and Beer always fun. Sat inside , but dont think it really matters-either in or out is good. Service was good and food was same. For a quick bite off a cruise ship or if just in the neighborhood this would be the place.

We were seated fairly quickly on a Sunday afternoon. Our waiter... The reason for the bad review. I had to finally stand in his path to pay my bill with him and he still tried to walk past me. Lots of others places close by with better service, better food and better scenery. Just go somewhere else.
