“Excellent Brew Pub!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We stopped in for lunch at the Kona Brewing Company and sat outside on their tropical patio and sampled their beers, most of which were excellent, especially Fire Rock. Our lunch was pizza and it was excellent, everything was fresh and innovative. Service was good. Overall a winner and recommended!!

“Good Food if you don't mind sharing..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My family ordered a pizza which was a great choice as it turned out. A very good crust and quite flavorful, it went great with a cold Heff. The problem was that we chose to eat outside in one of the most bug infested enviornments that i have ever had the misfortune in dining in

“Good beer, great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Went for the brewery tour, did the beer tasting and decided to stick around for a meal and listen to some live music. Very glad we did as the whole afternoon/early evening was fun. The pizza is awesome, the cold beer variety great and the live music was excellent.

“Great food and service. Sensational array of local beer!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were a family with a small 10 year old girl and arrived at approximately 3 pm after a long 4 hour trip from Hawaii Volcanoes National park. It was a little bit hard to find but when we finally got there we were very impressed straight away. The place was rocking with customers even though it was way past normal lunch hours. We were immediately seated and promptly attended to. The servers were very professional and always smiling. The food was of good quality with generous servings. Their beer was sensational. I would recommend that to you go for the 4 brew sampler (a couple of times ;) so that that you can taste their full array of beer. We were so satisfied and happy that we ended up buying a Kona Brewing Co T Shirt (which are very cool and of good quality) and a huge carafe to take away. If in Bog Island Kona this place is a must for any visitor!!!! Cheers.

“Take the beer brewing tour - before or after lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

What a fun place! Interesting food, indoor or outdoor seating, and their beer brewing tour was amazing (their chilled brewing facilities are a GREAT place to beat the heat). After the 30 tour (which is FREE), you are treated to very generous samples of 4 or 5 different kinds of beer. You should probably have lunch there before the tour. ;- )
