  • We were told to stop here and we are glad we did! It was busy and the hostess was rather rude so I asked her if she was having a bad day to which she responded "I'm just sick and don't want to be here...  more »
  • Great beer tour! Only $5 a person. My husband and I just signed up last minute at the "booth" they had right by the restaurant entrance. The tour inside the beer-making facility wasn't super interesti...  more »

  • Don't let the mobs of tourists steer you away, this brew pub is worth the visit for both the food and the beer. It's always a treat to visit a brewery that you love back on the mainland, but being on the island makes it that much better. The food is simple but very well prepared and high quality (try the pizza where they use spent grains from the brewing process in the dough). The beer is amazing and don't forget to come back for the tour! The staff seems happy to assist you and share their passion for their craft. Don't miss!
  • Kona is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries. I haven't had a bad beer by them yet. Some are better than others, but none are just bad. Delicious pizza, too! My wife and I will be coming to back to take the tour and drink more delicious beer. Edit: having been back with my wife, I STILL haven't had a bad beer and we've tried over 15, between the tour and two dinners. If you don't visit this restaurant during your stay you're doing yourself a disservice.
  • Even though they didn't have the lemongrass beer available the experience was amazing. Are waitress was on point. It's as she knew we were about to ask for something and brought it before we even ask. The buffalo wings are spectacular and the beer was better then ever!!!
  • Amazing brewery and certainly one of my favorite breweries. Nothing but good vibes from employees to customers. Incredible selection of beer, some of which you won't find in stores. 🙏🏽🙌🏽
  • Been looking forward to coming here for a while. Kona brewing company beer is my favorite at home so I was excited to try it here and also experience the brews you can't get outside of hawaii. The beer was delicious of course, lots of options. Staff seemed pretty knowledgeable about the different beers which was nice. The food was just okay.
