Ate here three different times on this trip. Will go back when we are in Kona again. Beer is awesome (it better be as you are at a brewery). They have special beers they don't sell anywhere else. Food is really good - way better than most pub food. Ahi was fresh and well prepared, salads where really good and... More

We visited this restaurant for a late lunch after arriving in Kona. Our rental car agent recommended it. My daughter and I had the special pizza slice and salad. The pizza was delicious and you got to choose from their side salads. We had the kale salad and enjoyed it a lot. The atmosphere is casual, the service was friendly... More

Due to my picky nature it was only after reading the reviews about this restaurant that I thought it would be worth exploring; so we went during the evening and decided that we would have the pasta of all things. To my surprise the pasta is prepared extremely well; this ate no olive garden pasta, it was filling and the... More

Went for my husband's birthday, and it was alarmingl disappointing. On our last visit to the island, we wanted to go there for lunch before our flight, but the wait was 45 min so we had to pass. This time, a Tuesday night, the hostess said it would be 5-10 minutes so we went to the bar for a beer... More

3 teenagers couldn't say enough about how good the food was. Service was very good by Kelly. We will definitely go back to try more things on the menu. Fish Tacos were to die for!

Short walk from our hotel. Great beer selection of coarse. Castaway IPA is my favorite. Shrimp sandwich was tasty. Decent prices.

First of all, how cool is it to have a brewery in Hawaii? With that being said, we were seated, and it took a good 10-15 minutes for a server to approach us and take our drink order. I ordered an IPA that was a specialty, Kua Bay IPA and it was good to very good. After we had our... More

We went to the Kona Brewing Company pub in Kailua-Kona because my husband loves their beer and we thought it would be a fun stop. We were incredibly surprised by the food, it was excellent! We arrived just before they opened but because it was a hot and humid afternoon and several of us wanted to eat inside we had... More

Having arrived at the airport hungry, our group of six headed to Kona before continuing on to our hotel. We requested a table inside and we're told 5 minutes. Ten minutes later we find out a waitress let a group to switch tables and took our table. Now we have to wait 30 minutes unless we're willing to squeeze into... More
