I came for the beer and stayed for the pizza. First, the beer is outstanding. Definitely partake in the seasonal flavors and skip the commercial favorites. Second, order a pizza. Our favorite is the Puna Pie - a white pizza with 4 cheeses and garlic. This pizza pie was conceived in the stars and served to the gods. Third, it's... More

The food was exceptional. Our waiter suggested that we share the big platter and we found that to be good advice. We also had the wings which were delicious. Then we took the tour and had a blast afterwards doing the tasting. Great stop, even if just for the food.

Went to this place for lunch and were totally impressed. We had pizza, pepperoni rolls and the quesadilla and they were all amazing!! Service was great and the Wailua Wheat beer was delicious and refreshing. We will be going back before the end of our trip!

Stopped by for a light bite to eat and was pleasantly surprised by the fun selection of beers. We had a sampler of beers - our favorites were the Fire rock and Lava man Red. I had the Kahlua pork and rice which was perfect with a little soy sauce to bring out the flavors! My husband had the sliders... More

You may want to try the variety of beers on the list, but it isn't necessary to have a good meal experience. Sitting outside was delightful on a warm, sunny day. Service was good. We shared a delightful strawberry and macadamia salad and a medium pizza. Both were very good and came to the table promptly. Prices were as expected.... More

This is definitely a place you want to stop and eat, have a cold fresh beer, and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. I had fresh fish tacos and spouse had pizza and a salad....and we shared a four beer sampler that was a great way to go. Dessert was fantastic (chocolate chip cookie sundae). Server gave suggestions and beer was fresh... More

Learned a lot on tour. It's funny that the bottles of Kona Beer sold in Hawaii are imported from the Mainland. Only kegs, for bars and restaurants are brewed in Kona. When in Kona, it's a must stop place to drink some beers and have a bite to eat.
