Visited the brewing company, from San Diego, for food and drinks. Food was very tasty and portions large. We tried their sampler of beers and was a perfect warm day for some samples. Samplers were $9.50 for four-five ounces. Kua Bay India Pale Ale I especially liked. Everything was to our liking and would go back again.

Went for dinner withy brother and husband. We had a great time even though it did rain on us. The food was good, and so was the service. I'm now a fan of their beer.

Well attended here twice while on the Big Island. The staff are great from the initial hostesses to the waitresses. Well worth just for some beer tasting but the food is also very good. I highly recommend the Margarita Pizza just have chicken added.

My husband and I visited the brewery because it's one of his favorite beers. We both had a great time. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable. We ate at the restaurant after the tour. The food and service was great.

Nice enough setting. Can only review the pizzas. Our pizza order arrived but was burned to a crisp and not edible. Server did apologise and replaced the pizza promptly. This pizza was not a quality pizza and we ate very little of it. Can not understand the ratings by so many others for the great quality. Was not so!

Pizza was ok but overpriced! The tables were packed in and so dark you had a hard time reading the menu. Our server was terrible and not at all friendly. Would not go again. Very disappointed.
