  • 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!!!
  • Excellent place to grab some food and the best beer in town of course. Some of the seasonal choices are amazing. Highly recommend the wait. Lunch is way less crowded btw.
  • 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. 🙏🏽🙌🏽
