Kona Brewing - Kailua Kona
The brewpub opened in November 1998. In true Aloha spirit, we opted to make it out of locally-sourced materials, and we even built a 2,000 square-foot outdoor lanai that lets you kick back and breathe in the fresh island air.
Inside the brewpub, you can spend a few hours lounging at our masterpiece U-shaped Koa bar with great grub and great beer. Brewery tours are available daily, and the Growler Shack is also open daily, serving beer-to-go.
Great Place to relax with the family and enjoy some fresh beer on tap. Always a family favorite while visiting Kona.
Kona Brewing has great beer and amazing food. We always love coming here! They never disappoint.
Consistently good food and fun Hawaiian ambience, a must restaurant to experience while in Kona, HI.
Food was amazing! Our server, Pamela, was outstanding. He knowledge of the food, beer and island were all extremely valuable. While in Kona, this was our go to for good food and amazing hospitality!
This place is very popular in Kona so you may want to make reservations before your lunch or dinner event. The food was very good, I had the Hawaiian pizza. The only thing they could change to make the experience better would be to lower the music volume and reduce the number of flies that are trying to share in your dining experience.
Our server was amazing. I don’t recall his name, but he might be Jack Blacks younger brother. The guy was funny, prompt, and just about perfect in every way. The food is good, the beer is better. This is our second visit, and we’ll be coming back next time we make it to the are.
Great food and lots of variety.
Lunch with family.
Great ambiance for a gathering of friends. Wonderful service from Zack, who exhibited good humor and patience with a group of mature women. 😉
We had a great visit on 2/26/19 for my Dad's 80th birthday. We ended up with a nice table for 6 on the patio. Our server was super friendly and fun. The beer and food were yummy!
Been going from mid 90s. Always great beer and pizza. Fun to meet friends and make friends. Enjoyed. Makana' s slack key too.
Horrible. We waited at our table for15 min with NO contact from the waitstaff. We will not be returning to Kona Brewing
If you love beer, this may be the place for you. The food, however, was not anything special at all. They seemed to use a lot of gorgonzola cheese in a lot of their dishes, and it was overwhelming in our opinion. We didn't try the pizza, so that may be better. We had the roasted garlic with gorgonzola, strawberry spinach salad (with too much of the cheese!) and bbq chicken tacos which were not bad but arrived lukewarm. The staff was seriously friendly though which was appreciated.
Using opentable was easy and I didn’t have to download the app, but now I might! I would recommend setting a reservation because often the wait for walking up is minimum 45 minutes. Of course you can grab a beer while you wait! Very satisfied with open table and Kona brewing is a great value with great beers and a fun atmosphere. Great for people watching!!
Great food great beer. Nice ambiance, music was a bit loud.
Staff was very friendly.
We went for a brewery tour and lunch. Very informative and impressive with their dedication to the environment and sustainability. We had the roasted garlic and cheese appetizer and tried a different type of pizza than we would usually have, it was the Hawaiian Luau pizza with porter barbecue sauce, Kalua pork and pineapple salsa. We will have to get another one before we go home. We also shared a flight of beer. Every staff member we encountered, from our tour guide, the hostess and Chad our waiter were very friendly. We found the cost of lunch to be very reasonable. Was a great experience!
We had reservations for a group of 14 or so. Only 1 server for all of us??? We just noticed that every restaurant in the islands of Hawaii takes forever to get anything compared to the mainland. Food was good. Waitress was ok.
My son said it was the best pizza he has ever had. I would likely agree with him on my pizza. It is a beautiful setting and we loved the wide coverage with the red umbrellas!! We had one minor glitch with our bill but is was all good!
Gee, we are in Hawaii , at a Brewery... its' already pretty amazing, however the entire event was amazing!
The food, the Beer , the staff. You have to go if you are in the area. It's that simple
Excellent stop on way to or from the Kona airport - great way to start or finish your Hawaii vacation
Place was great. Kid friendly which is always a bonus for us. Great beer and food.
Awesome little spot to grab a bite. Great service, great happy hour menu options. Awesome music (all classic rock!) First menu in all of Hawaii so far to actually offer reasonable pricing on food & drinks! Make a reservation! We did & were seated in less than 5 minutes of arriving. Would definitely recommend & would definitely return. Thanks!!
Best pepperoni rolls ever. Ola is a fantastic waiter!!
Have eaten there several times on our visits to Hawaii. Always been satisfied. Very good!
We’ve been to the location on Oahu and like this one so much more!! Wish we could transplant it since we live on Oahu, haha!
Good beer and food.
Beer was good. Pizza was horrible. I was there three years ago and food was much better. Go for the fresh and yummy beer but don’t expect anything from the meal. Server was nice and good.
As part of our anniversary trip we wanted to make a visit to Kona brewing. We highly recommend taking the tour as part of your experience. Well the pizza was great the pesto pizza with chicken was slightly dry
Excellent food and beer in fun environment
Great place for a decent meal and great beer. Cool place.
Wonderful place that we visit every trip. The beer is amazing and the flights are fun to try. The flatbreads are the best thing to eat!! Make reservations!
Great food. Great service. Great beers! Can’t do better than than. Make your reservation ahead of time.
Outstanding service! The perfect place to eat and have a (or a few!!) great beers. Highly recommend.
Easy reservation, quick seating, excellent service, great atmosphere in an outdoor or bar setting. Pizzas and choice of beers excellent.
Gift shop was a 10!
Great beers. Expansive menu.Imu pork sandwich was very tasty; macaroni salad was bland. Pizza was extraordinary for a beer place. They only sell beer and wine so go elsewhere for Mai Tais. Long waits without a reservation.
Last meal in Kona. Loved the atmosphere! Will be back!
Food fabulous, atmosphere true Hawaiian feel, service was fast and bye friendly despite being incredibly busy. Best dining experience in Kona!
