“Great beer, great food”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Stopped in a couple times during our stay. The food is always good, the beer is outstanding and even though it's not an ocean front place the atmosphere is still great. Beautiful garden seating.

“Best Pizza on the Island”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Definitely the best pizza we had on the island, and according to my seven year old, the second best pizza he has ever had in his life :-).

The pizza size and topping amounts were very generous. We overbought pizza not knowing that, and ended up taking a to-go box home with us of what amounted to a full pizza.

I had the fish tacos, which were very good. They were very accommodating to my food allergies, able to leave ingredients out and make substitutions.

Being a pub, I wasn't sure about it being family friendly, but it was. They had a children's menu which was quite substantial. My daughter had pizza roll ups, which looked almost like cinnamon rolls with pepperoni and cheese rolled up in them instead of cinnamon and sugar. She really enjoyed them.

I also enjoyed their free-refills on their Kona Coffee. It was excellent!

The outdoor seating was great for the gorgeous weather the day we were there, but there was also ample seating inside if the weather wasn't quite so nice.

We would highly recommend eating at Kona Brewing Company.

“Good place to catch a bite to eat and have a beer!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We were on the Big Island for eight days. We ate here twice. If it wasn't for the 30 min drive from our resort, we probably would have been there more! Both times we had lunch- it was good, they have a good variety, offering pizzas, salads, sandwiches. We sat on the patio and were able to look at the Gecko's running up the trees (my four year old son loved that part)! We would highly recommend. The pricing is not bad either, you get a lot of food. I split my meals as they were that big!

Ate here with a group of 6. The wings were great. Service a bit slow and had to wait about 35 minutes to be seated, but hey--that's 35 more minutes to sit and enjoy their beer.
