  • Must visit when in the Kona area. Great relaxed feel about the place, good bar food and an even better amount of beers to choose from. We got there at peak time when waits were 45 minutes for tables b...  read more »
  • The food is delicious and the beer is too! Not to mention how fun the atmosphere is.. we came multiple times during our trip! So fun 
  • We didn't do the tour but took our friends here for lunch and a beer. Very crowded but worth the effort to get a seat inside or out and suffer thru the heat if outside just to have one of their beers!...  read more »
  • Service was Excellent. Everyone was friendly. Had the Margarita pizza. I loved it! Had balsamic in it. Very good. It was a little salty but perfect for me. Highly Recommended. Dukes Blonde 3.95 pint all day today.
  • Great beer, really mediocre pizza. The seasonal beer offerings were fantastic and all the beers seemed like the perfect drink for the big island. As for the food... I ordered a pizza that was supposed to have bacon and jalapeƱos on it, and there was less than 1 square inch of bacon on the entire pizza. Definitely not enough to even taste. The jalapeƱos seemed pickled and didn't have any noticeable heat. Overall, it hit the spot, but for the prices I was hoping to be more satisfied with the food.
  • I and another went there for lunch. The greeting staff were unfriendly, and the place was dirty with flies flying inside the restaurant. Our waiter was non-existent after taking our orders and not once did he return after our main meal was served to ask how our meal was or ask if we wanted more drinks. My lunch companion had the mac and cheese which he said was vile, super greasy and without any flavor. I had the chicken teriyaki sand which. It was ok. Don't waste your time or money at this place.
  • A must-visit restaurant and bar for craft beer and pizza lovers. They also have a few lighter offerings for those into lower alcohol (lighter) craft beers. Creative brewing with standard and local ingredients like coconut, coffee, pineapple, and ginger make it worth buying a flight of tasters before choosing your twelve-once or pint glass. The pizza and salad selection also stand out. Kale salad with dried cranberries, macadamia nuts, and a yogurt-based dressing is a great start. I've included a picture of the pizza menu, because there are too many good ones to list. The hands-tossed, fresh-made crust is fantastic, and it's made using spent grain from the brewing process!
  • Beer is good, I always liked oregon beer... I'm from there... yes, check the friggen bottle if you don't believe me. Castaway and Firerock are the bomb. .... Anyway happy hour you can get a pounder for 4 bucks, not bad, not good but ok fair enough... So, we decided to get a pizza. YUCK YUCK YUCK! Mucking terrible. I think we go the spicy chicken... Costco cheese was ok, just had ommm, maybe a ounce of chicken on the entire pizza. What a JOKE! Seriously? C'mon! It was so bad, the costco cheese was loaded up on it and it was way too salty, couldn't even eat it, we left over half the pizza there. Dunno, won't be back for any grub, but the beer was excellent. Your better off going to get Tbones 13.99 a lbs a costco, and picking up a case of fire rock, hitting the beach with smoky webber in hand ... it's the life! Maybe a side order of Ahi cut up in onions and sea salt. Ono! Service was ok....
