We had a group of 14 people with us. We were seated immediately. We were pleased with the great service, food, and craft beers. We have made sure to make a second stop during this trip as we really enjoyed the food atmosphere and prices. We recommend this as a must visit location!

Food was good, beer was good, and we like the atmosphere. Everybody recommended we go there so they must be doing something right. But, if you go during a normal dinner hour... prepare to wait a good hour or longer to get a table.

Figured we should try this place out since we like beer. Tried a sampler of beers I have not seen anywhere else. They were good and the poke was good too. If you like kona brewing beers, you need to stop here.

The Kona Brewing Company Pub isn't that easy to find, but worth the effort. It is a fun place to eat and relax. It can be a bit noisy with all the fun people who eat and drink there, but that's part of the attraction to this special place.

Well there's certainly a lot of beers to choose from. It's a bit touristy. Our menus were sticky and that's a pet peeve for me. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Bathroom was messy :(

Since my husband is a home-brewer, we usually have to stop at different breweries. We enjoyed this one immensely. The staff is incredibly friendly and their fish tacos were out of this world. Pretty a must for us.

This is a nice place to eat and have a beer. The food is typical micro-brew fare and the beer is good. My favorite was the Wailua Wheat. It is better than Blue Moon. You have to remember you are in Kona Hawaii so everything cost just a little more than you expect but all in all this place is... More
