If you really must go here, go after the dinner rush. Waits can be over an hour. Excellent beer selection and you have time to try a few kinds while you wait for a table. The food is typical bar food with a Hawaiian flair with the addition of pizzas as well. The pizzas are decent and the best value... More

This is a great place to go, a bit off the beaten trail in Kona. Great appetizers and great beer selection. Grab a beer sampler and relax.

Bit of a walking maze finding the brewery but great way to quench one's thirst on a sunny morning (or afternoon). Personally love their Castaway brew but lots of other varieties to call your own. The food was okay and the service exceptional.

My wife and I were very disappointed with our experience at Kona Brewing. We received very poor service. Very inattentive wait staff. We were charged for a beer we did not receive. It took three tries for the wait staff to get our bill correct. We decided to order the pizza. Not very good. If you go there, suggest only... More

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 :(
