I love the beer but I was surprised how good the food was. We ate there twice and picked up a pizza another time during the same week. A lot of people were eating pizza. I especially liked the Porterhouse Dip but, whatever you do, unless you really don't like garlic, order the Roasted Garlic pupus - and then don't breathe too heavily close to anyone that hasn't shared. The fresh fish is wonderful as well.

If you are a beer drinker, sign up for the tour. It's like $5 and your receive samples at the end. We scheduled it so we could have a couple more beers afterwards and then dinner.

The food was actually pretty darn good and I enjoyed to brew of the week. I loved the music they played (rock and blues) and had a good lunch at Kona Brewing Co.

The food and beer was amazing. The prices are very reasonable, too, considering Hawaii is very high priced. We had a great time and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere!

This should absolutely be a stop on your trip to Kona, particularly if you're a beer fan. The restaurant is lively and has great atmosphere and tasty food. If you're new to Kona Brewing beers, try the sampler. I'm a big fan of Lava Man, which I've only seen on tap. We had the Brewben Reuben and BBQ pork. Yum!

We stopped by towards the end of the evening. The waiter was friendly and service was a little slow. That was odd in that we got the impression that they wanted us to hurry up and leave. I ordered a pizza that was above average due to the nice choice of toppings. I would only return if I was with someone who was a fan of their beer.
