Kona Brewery is an great place for everyone. Ordered the Pork Tacos and a pint it was awesome. Atmosphere is laid back with indoor and outdoor seating.

Okay...maybe 4.85 Stars...but seriously, I do love this place. It is always hopping. Take my advice...TRY the Koko Brown. It is the BEST Roasted Coconut Ale ever made. I don't like jalapeño poppers, but I like theirs. All the food is good, the staff is long term and the best. Inside, at the bar is where I prefer because it's... More

As stated, great food, beer and atmosphere. Long waits if you arrive after 5:30. I believe they are looking to expand by 2018

Essentially this is a brewery with a restaurant. The restaurant tends to get busy so when you arrive there may be a wait. They do give you buzzers that let you know when your table will be ready if you are willing too wait. We went on a busy Monday night and not waited 15 minutes. They have a wide... More

Popped in just for a quick bite and a drink and we loved it. We were there during happy hour which made it even better. Good food options for veggies which isn't always the case we found on the Big Island

Take the tour and stick around for some food and beers afterwards. The tour includes ~4 tastings which just scratches the surface of their offerings.

We went on their 3pm brewery tour and had dinner afterwards. The tour guide was knowledgable, fun, friendly and we got to sample beer not available on the mainland. In addition to hearing about how their beer is made in some detail, it was interesting to hear about their sustainability program and business plan too. It was $5 for the... More

I absolutely loved this place and to top it off our server was from Colorado too! I had the jalapeno popper pizza which was amazing with a Longboard! Will definitely be back...

I had the strawberry spinach salad with gorgonzola cheese and loved it. Small size is plenty. My son had pepperoni pizza, very good. I enjoyed pale ale beer. Nice hops. Wing are very nice also.

We stopped for lunch. It wasn't crowded and we were able to get a table outside in the patio area. Service was excellent. We had of course Kona beer and a large pizza. The beer was cold and the pizza was delicious. Lots of varieties of pizza or make up your own. We stopped by again later in the week... More
