Really good food. Everything on the menu looks amazing as I saw it being delivered to each table. Massive portions. The poke was the best that I have had. The beef dip was incredible and so tasty. Wife had the pulled pork sandwich. The flavours were the best. Nice gift store also

The pizza was very good. They have a nice selections of their beer. It was nice to try their draft only beers. The service was all very good. The server was very knowledgeable about the beers and was more than will to let you sample a few.

While short, (it's a small brewery), we really enjoyed the comradery of the other people in the group, especially at the beer tasting session. Later in the evening, we came back for supper in their excellent restaurant - best PIZZA in Kona! We did this the first 3 days of our visit to the Big Island, then at the end... More

We stopped by for a quick meal before heading to the airport. We had a pizza and the Kale salad, which were both really great! We tried a few different Kona brews, and enjoyed the sunset from the patio. A nice relaxing end to our vacation!

Went here twice and had a really enjoyable time on both occasions. It's a really busy place, hard to get a table, but we were lucky enough to walk into the bar area and get two seats. Their beers are so good, my partner isn't much of beer person and even she loved some of the fruitier beers they have... More

It might be a little hard to find, but Kona Brewing is definitely worth seeking out. They have incredible food in a very wonderful setting. This is just a great pub and of course, their beer is awesome. We go here every time we come to Kona and it only seems to get better.

When my husband and I have been lucky enough to visit the Big Island, THIS is our first and last (and a few times during) place to eat. The beer is amazing, but that pizza crust!!! The small town atmosphere and great food have us coming back time after time. We've even been known to order a pizza to go... More

I would say their specialty was pizza though they have added salads and sandwiches. We stayed for lunch after taking the brewery tour. We had the salad and pizza slice combo. The food was fresh and good but nothing special.
