Got off the plane and drove straight to Kona Brewing Co. for a bite to eat. The pizza and salad are consistently good, and the beers cold. Waitstaff is friendly so it's a perfect way to start our vacation.

Wanted to try the pizza which was very good. I am not a beer drinker but had the one only available in Hawaii (unsure of name) and was very good. Good service with reasonable prices

Flying in to the Kona Airport, this is a must first stop. Great food, good service and huge portions. My husband had the pulled pork nachos and we could have fed the table of six. The fish tacos are amazing. I am not a beer drinker, but there seems to be something for everyone. Geckos and mongoose wander around... It... More

Not as good as Banjy's Paradise Bar & Grill , nor as inexpensive, but very good. Really friendly wait staff, good service. Our waitress guided us well in our selections. I think I forgot to take pictures. If you are going to the Brewery, make your reservations early and even maybe on line. They have a menu other than pizza,... More

You have to eat here at least once while visiting Kona. The drinks and food are delicious and there's a good variety of choices. You can even enjoy a cold brew while you wait for a table. The root beer floats were huge and delicious for us non -drinkers.

First night on the island took us back to Kona Brewing. It was raining quite hard but the huge umbrellas keep most of the rain away. Fun place to have a casual dinner. Food is ok but the beers rock, so I'm told. I am not a beer drinker and still enjoy going. Tshirts are a bit pricy but good... More

Stopped here at Kona as one of the ports on the Pride of America cruise. Boy it was a hot and humid day. The beer went down very nicely. This place was full. Got a table pretty quickly. Ordered pizzas and garlic bread. Very nice.

On the big Island for two weeks visited many great restaurants but the pizza is the best! The waitress was a little less enthused than one might like but it didn't take away from the food!

We ordered two different pizzas and found both to be very good. The beer selections are good, including the array of Kona Brewing Company beers. We found the food, beer, and service to be solid. Definitely a place to dine when in Kona.

Thank Bill2100
