“A must stop in Kona!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

This should absolutely be a stop on your trip to Kona, particularly if you're a beer fan. The restaurant is lively and has great atmosphere and tasty food. If you're new to Kona Brewing beers, try the sampler. I'm a big fan of Lava Man, which I've only seen on tap. We had the Brewben Reuben and BBQ pork. Yum!

“Good beer!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We stopped by towards the end of the evening. The waiter was friendly and service was a little slow. That was odd in that we got the impression that they wanted us to hurry up and leave. I ordered a pizza that was above average due to the nice choice of toppings. I would only return if I was with someone who was a fan of their beer.

“Very Good Meal and Excellent Beer”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We had a very good meal here. The micro-brew beer was excellent. Great local cuisine and character. Parking a little tough, but it is because it is so good. I can live with that. I recommend it.

“Our favorite place to eat in Kona!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

During our recent 2 week stay on the Big Island, we ate at the Kona Brewing Company 3 times. We love the pizza, especially the Kohala (it has macadamia nuts)! The atmosphere is great and everyone is very friendly.

“Good for brew & family eats”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Great selection of food, beyond basic bar fare. You'll wait with all the other tourists, but service is efficient. Food and of course the beer is worth the wait.
