My wife and I ate here and ordered the fish taco, the nachos and the Santa Fe stew, and none of the food was very good and the beer was nothing to get excited about. This is one to skip.

I've gone here several times since my first visit a year and a half ago; it's a standard when I'm on the island. Bar seating is limited, but it's great to hang out there. Big Island Brewhaus, for me, is more about the beer, the...More

Worth the drive up to Waimea from the coast resorts. Award winning beer - get the sampler: choosing just one is too hard. Had a fresh ahi BLT for lunch - fantastic. Friendly staff, chill old school island vibe.

We were there on a night with a fish tostado special. It was layered high and was fantastic! We ate at a bench outside among the locals and really enjoyed it here.

Tasty food and a very wide selection of beers including some brewed on premises, all served in a boisterous, busy setting. Dine inside or out. All in all, it's well worth visiting. It's got something for everyone.

I have only had the chance to visit once and I ate the Chimichanga and it was amazing. Like most places in Waimea they close before 9 pm so get there earlier in the night. I am looking forward to exploring more of their menu...More
