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.

Did the tour. Very informative about the brewing process. Did t realize beer was brewed with such cleanliness and sterility. Lots of pride in their sustainability and environmentally friendly initiatives. Great way to spend an hour

The beer selection at Kona was much wider than we expected. Longboard is usually the only one we see on draft where we live, but there are several selections at the brewery that we prefer to Longboard. In fact, almost all of them. The food...More
