Learned a lot on tour. It's funny that the bottles of Kona Beer sold in Hawaii are imported from the Mainland. Only kegs, for bars and restaurants are brewed in Kona. When in Kona, it's a must stop place to drink some beers and have a bite to eat.

The pizza here is really good. Fresh catch of thr day is also very good. It's a little pricy but the food is worth it. It was good experience overall.

Only here one time for a couple hours but long enough to really dig the beers and atmosphere. Kona has a good lively vibe and friendly bar keeps and servers. Plenty of indoor and outside seating. What I like most about Kona is their brews. So many craft brewers are dialing up their hops and brews resulting in outrageous alcohol... More

Stopped here on the way to the airport for the midnight flight back to the mainland. Still busy at 8pm and with the rain, a bit tight on seating outside and inside. Quick service, great food...delicious pork tacos and pork sandwich. Great pub with a nice selection of beer and food.

4 of us went to lunch this past Saturday. We sat outside and it was lovely. We all had different items. I can't resist a Mahi Mahi sandwich, it was so good. The Caesar salad looked good and was huge. I can't remember what the other two had, but all was good. We have taken the tour before, so,we didn't... More

We were going for lunch but found the menu to be limited for the group I was with, so we tasted a few good beers and were on our way. Great brews :)

The pub has wonderful atmosphere and is a worthwhile experience although it is touristy. It is different than other beer pubs I have been in - and perhaps because it is outside it does not have the stale beer smell. The beers are very good and with some very different flavours. Food wise it is the usual menu. We shared... More

It wasn't much of a tour, just a quick peek at their grain silos, a glimpse of their manufacturing floor, and a group huddle in the walk-in cooler. However, the tour guide was a nice chap and the tasting afterward was much appreciated. We stayed for lunch and were impressed by their menu offerings. The food was good and the... More
