The food was good, fresh and tasty, but I felt a little pricey for what we got. The atmosphere was odd though - although the staff was nice, I almost felt like our waiting was trying to appear standoffish and a bit too "cool" for us. We waited a while, even by Hawaiian relaxed time frame, for our drink and food orders to be taken, then a while for our drinks to come. We then were not approached once to see how we were or if we need new drinks throughout our meal.

It was a good enough lunch but I would not go there again. Plenty of other places to try...

I found this location of the Kona brewery to be much better than the location on Oahu. The layout of the restaurants are different, but the decor is the same. There is the actual brewery here, so this location get's a lot of traffic for tours, refilling of growlers, and those wishing to eat and enjoy the food.

There was a similar menu to the location on Oahu, but the number of beers on tap was much larger since we were at the source for their brewing. They had many off menu offerings on tap, and provided some nice sampling opportunities of the newer formulations that they are creating.

Worth the stop for the food if your not a beer advocate!!! Bonus if you like both!

Hit the spot! After a coffee tour their beer and pizza was devine! Hibiscus blonde ale was tasty! Only a 5 minute wait but table service was so-so. The delicious pizza and cold beer made up for it.

Just tried for the 4th time to get a tour. You must be present to sign up for the tour. Tour was full again this morning, Hostess told us to come back later. Came back later and full again. Tried this earlier in the week and again today 3/15. Hostess not at all apologetic. Won't try again for the tour therefore won't be eating there. Grrrr, was on our list. K

We liked eating at the Kona Brewing Company. What we really liked was the service and the quality of the food. We did think that the large pizza wasn't so large for the price. It was tasty, but a little small. The side salads were enormous for a side salad (easily shared between two) and very fresh. It would have been a fivecircle rating if not for the little bit spendy pizza.
