If there is one thing to learn about the USA and that is their serving of food are large and they don't mind that you share your meals. We tried the nachos with pork and it probably could have feed the three or four people, it was delicious, fresh and surprisingly light in texture not weight down with lots of cheese and minimal other flavours. Now I know it's the beer you really want to know about well Koko Brown is really interesting with it's chocolate coconut undertone, the Big Wave is great any time of the day but the one we really feel in love with is the Red Lavamen. Be mindful of weather when you go as most seating is outside so it's no so good if raining also large crowd gather when a bands playing otherwise we have no criticisms.

This is a great place to hang out and have fun. We had 4 in our party and we all got a slice of pizza and a salad. The food was excellent. The pizza was some of the best I have had. I got the Veggie pizza with pepperoni. It was a huge slice with lots of toppings. The crust was also excellent. I also had the Greek salad and it was excellent. However, no matter how good the food was, you go here for the beer. They brew their own beer and they have a huge selection. I got a flight of 4 and I loved all 4. I tried 6 different beers and they were all great. Only negative was the noise level, it you don't go to a pub for peace and quiet, so it was fine. LOVE this place. We will be back next time we visit Kona.

We visited the brewery twice during our visit to kona. We had pizza, which was a little over priced but very delicious. & the fish tacos which were so amazing that my hubby had them both times we went. The beer sampler is very reasonably priced and a great way to find your favorite flavor. The outdoor seating is nice, with ample shade, tiki torches &greenery. We ate one here with our small children& they provided them with crayons.

We went to the Kona brewing company and pub several times on our recent trip to Kona, Hawaii. We really enjoyed it. They don't have the view that other restaurants in Kona have. But, the the atmosphere is fun and the service was really good. And we thought the food was really good. Especially the pizza. It was awesome. And the craft beers are pretty descent as well.
I would say the biggest problem was its busy and every time we went we had to wait. Not super long. But long enough to head to the bar and have a beer.
But we would definitely recommend the Kona brewery and pub.

Don't get turned off by the outside of this place. It's very much better inside. Very good beer. 4 of us had lunch, with much beer tasting going on. We did have a sober driver. The food was great. We had pizza, fish and shrimp taco's. My favourite beer was the Fire Rock Ale. Worth a visit. We'll go one more time before we leave.
