We had an awesome dinner at the Kona Brewing Company. each dish we ordered was just delicious. if you love garlic, you need to have their roasted garlic app. the garlic spread as smoothly as butter and had a wonderful taste. It is a must try when you go, for individuals who like/love garlic.

Prepare to wait to be seated. Went for lunch and choose the $9 pizza slice (barbeque chicken) and salad special. Pizza slice was the size of two slices anywhere else. We had a choice of salads and choose the strawberry spinach. Great combination and very filling. Really good value.

I loved the food and staff but the air conditioning is not strong enough at lunch. Maybe during the evenings on a cooler day it is a better option. We loved the food (I had the slice of the day with salad and it was a great price!) and of course the beer! Would deffinetly go back if I return... More

Pizza was really good! Loved the pesto with artichoke, veggie, and goat cheese and mushroom. Cheeseburger pizza not as good. Turkey club was really good! Great beer.

This place was on our list of things to do while visiting the big island. The beer selection was good and tasty. The food was pretty good, but let's leave the pizza making to the east coast! Their breads and pizza dough are made with recycled grains from the mash. The outside seating was nice, but had to use my... More

Ok we go here every time we are on the Kona side of the Big Island. Given the traffic the food is always great and the bear - well the reputation speaks for itself. For you hard core tourists one of the better tee shirt selections too!

Fancy names for plain food and drinks. The pizza was the biggest disappointment because I had been told good things about it. I do not drink at all so I can't say a thing about the beer.
