Try the fish tacos! Expect a little wait. Always has been busy when I've been there. But worth it. Good selection of beers.

stopped here twice on a recent visit to Kailua-Kona, on a vacation with friends. Six of us had dinner here the first night of our trip - a short wait for a table (which turns out to be unusual), reasonable service, good food. Pizza was very tasty, salads were good, liked the local beer. decided to stop in for lunch... More

Since they don't take reservations, we have had to wait on a table every time we have eaten here, even though some tables are visibly available. We always enjoy a Kona brew, but my recent shrimp melt sandwich was too much bread for me to consume and five whole cloves of garlic which I chose not too consume. However, my... More

Loved the sampling option which allowed us to taste everything on tap without getting bloated. My fave is the Kua Bay IPA. I don't usually like IPA's but this one was smooth with body & with just enough weight. Loved the crab cakes. They should warm the edamame. Great vibe & energy. A bit noisy inside, but nice outdoor dining... More

We ate here with a large group on a recent visit to the island for the Ironman race. We ordered several different pizzas and voted among us on our favorites. Prices were reasonable, pizza was very good, beer choices to please all. Eat outdoors if possible. Nicer ambience.

My wife and I went to Kona Brewing on a busy Saturday night during their annual Oktoberfest party. I thought we'd be waiting in a painful 2 hour line, but they've got plenty of seating and were easily able to accommodate our order from the bar to the table. Our bartender was great and attentive, as was our waiter when... More

We had just arrived to our first time in Hawaii. Jet lagged after a long day of flying we decided to hit this place up as we love breweries. It was a wonderful welcome to Hawaii. I got a sampler and tried a variety of beers and enjoyed them all. My favorite by far was something they had seasonal with... More

The tour was informative but it's a small place so didn't take long. They charge you a small fee for the tour but you get free samples at the end and two sample glasses. We ate there for dinner and the pizza was wonderful and the beer very good. You'll be able to try beer you can't get in the... More

I did not do the tour, but I tried a Mahi starter and had the beer sampler. Both were very nice. I you would like to taste all the different Kona beers, come here.

We went for the brewery tour. The tour lasts around 20 minutes and is really boring and uninformative. You get four small samples of beer to taste afterwards, and the beer was pretty average. We really couldn't believe that the place CHARGES you to learn about THEIR brewery and to taste THEIR beer, and after the tour we all agreed... More
