Don't know why all the buzz for this place. Pizza was not so good, and service was not so good. If you just like beer, has lots of choices. Servers are not attentive for food except to bring you another beer or drink. We complained about our pizza and they decided to ignore us and brought us the Bill! Well, am sorry to say I will just have to ignore you! If you want good pizza, go to Boston Basils right on Alii Drive. They have the best pizza in town and a great selection of beer at way better prices!

Don't miss the Kohala Pizza to go with the best beer in town. Nothing compares to the fresh beer brewed here, try an IPA!

I suppose it's hidden, even though it's right in town and on a corner. You feel separated from the world by the landscaping...

Great service and incredible food. Kohala pizza...wonderful salads.

I even liked the beer and I'm not a beer drinker...

The Kona Brewing Company is in a decidedly industrial section of the city. Don't be fooled. Once you walk past the hostess stand you will find a very pleasantly landscaped outdoor seating section and an indoor pub type seating. You soon forget where you are. The food selection is just right, not too fussy, nicely prepared. The beer tasting selection is a lot of fun. If you have done the Magic Hat visit, you will now wish they followed the example set here.
We arrived just ahead of the rush. Time it carefully as it is small and there could be a wait. We were not rushed however and our waiter was attentive without hovering. An outdoor gift shop so you can take home an extra memory. Put this place on your list!

Visited the Kona Brewing Company and really enjoyed the pizza and atmosphere. Outside table are great if it is not too humid, but an ice cold Long Board helps! Recommend this place to anyone visiting Kailua-Kona and it is only a few blocks from the pier and shops.
