A great place to stop by and enjoy a refreshing ale. The staff were great and also provided lots of ideas on things to do on the island. Mahalo

“OH, YES!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Ok, so there is something GREAT about visiting the brew-pub near the awesome beaches of Kona while enjoying micro-brew on tap that you enjoy in a bottle on the mainland. Add to that a super-friendly staff and a menu that is beyond compare. Amazingly created pupas (appetizers), burgers, fries, pizzas, sandwiches, salads and deserts. The menu is extensive, so bring friends and a huge appetite. This will always go on record as a must-visit location when in Kona. Even the locals hanging out at the bar were super friendly. I love Kona Brewing Co.!!!

“The Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Can't say enough! Great food great atmosphere and great beer!! We went 3 times in one week! Not really any seafood but they are really the only restaurant that doesn't look like a tourist spot. Will definitely visit when we return. Awesome pizza, salad and crab cakes!

“Great pizza, great beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We went here and had one of their pizzas and a tasting flight of beer. Some of the other reviewers mentioned service that wasn't the greatest, but I thought our service was quite good. The pizza was great too...so much variety, so it was great that you could make each half of your pizza and try two different kinds. It was a little bit difficult to find as it's not really on Kaukini Highway, but it's behind a mall and you'll see the yellow building as you get close. One mistake we made though was sitting outside...super hot in the middle of the day, so I would definitely recommend eating indoors if you go for lunch!
