We visited on a weeknight, but the place was still busy. We had about a 20 minute wait. We had the Hawaiian luau pizza. It was pretty good. They have beer and wine selection, but not a full bar. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Cute little...More

Have been to the Kona Brewery twice now and both times had a great experience, food was awesome, beer was delicious, tried four different kinds on separate occasions, enjoyed them all. Customer service was excellent as well.

Dry mealy chickpea burger not worth eating. Server not sure if “people who don’t like meat”liked it. The vegetarian nachos were also inedible

If you have ever had Kona Beer this is like a spiritual pilgrimage to the home land. While the food is fantastic (especially the pizza and the pulled pork), it is the beer that is great. And since this is the birth place of Kona...More

We loved our pizza here, although the large is not very large. Another fun part was the live band that played great music. People even ended up dancing! It was a fun place to go. We didn't rate it a 5 because we swatted flies...More

Beer was okay, but don't bother eating here, it was terrible. The Chipotle tacos should have been labeled as spicy, I had two relatives who couldn't finish even one because of the spice, and the tortillas looked like they were pulled straight out of a...More

Two families went for a evening meal. Beer and appetizers were great. Highly recommend the mussels. Entrees and service were not as strong. The two vegetarians in our party both said the veggie burgers were not great

We went here straight from the airport and we were told there were no tours for several hours. Let’s just say the employee was very rude. We decided to not return.

My family LOVED visiting the brewing company. Even my dad had a great time, and he doesn’t drink alcohol. The guide was very knowledgeable not only about the local history of the company and the backstory behind many of their business decisions, but also knew...More
