Stopped for lunch here in Waimea on our way across the island. So its a brewery with a mexican restaurant together as one. The beer list was large and unique, so my husband got a sampler and all 5 beers were really good. The coconut one was really unique! For food we got a few small plates to share, including... More

Beers were good. I'm not a craft kind of beer gal but they were good. The dishes were also very good. It's a small place. Local. With a need for updating. But it's the charm of the place. I had the grilled pineapple blue cheese quesadilla. It was soooo good. Different and tasty. My husband had the cheeseburger slider and... More

This place is worth the drive. The beer is excellent and the food is great, too. We actually came here twice during our trip because we loved everything so much. The prices are really reasonable, too. I have come here on all three trips to the Big Island and always bring home bottles from here because it's not sold on... More

Have been here a couple of times now, every single visit has been fantastic. The food and beer are awesome, the whole vibe of the place is great. Staff are friendly and helpful. Don't miss it if around Waimea.

The place was extremely crowded and noisy with the prime time lunch crowd. We weren't there for beer--just something to eat in this small town with limited choices. Settled on the bean and rice burrito, but needed some protein in there, so added the chicken for an additional fee. We also had the burrito served "wet" with added enchilada type... More

This is a small place with a big ambition: Provide a large variety of great food and excellent beer. It seems to accomplish that and more. From vegan to carnivore, everyone will be able to find something here and it will all be really good. Their beer selection is amazing too. They even craft their own Sprite-like drink that was...

Aloha, for your review! I apologize if the soda was mis-represented, although we did craft some sodas in the past, the lemon lime soda you enjoyed is crafted by No Ka Oi Soda on Oahu. Mahalo! More

We wanted to try this restaurant as we were told they brew great beer. That they do!! The food was good as well. The entertainment was not to our liking, but many of the crowd was watching and listening and seemed to be enjoying it.

Aloha, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to read you didn't enjoy the music - it looks like you visited on Original Music Tuesday - on open mic night geared to local & visiting songwriters - never know what we'll hear, but there is so much talent on our island it's usually quite good!

We were a bit leary of stopping here as it does look like a little run down shack, but to our surprise the food and beer were delicious. We had an order of chips and cheese, burrito and chimichanga. I had the burrito with the steak which was flavorful and tender and my husband had the chimichanga with pulled pork... More

Didn't look like much from the outside. Small, but amazing good food. We both had the special, fish enchiladas. They were excellent! Tons of beers to choose from, most their own or local brews.

Great beer, food, and warm "ohana" style hospitality. Try a beer sampler & just about anything on the menu. Excellent prices...you will leave totally satisfied!
