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.
Growler Shack is also open daily, serving food and beer-to-go.

Aloha! Mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed your time and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
I booked well in advance of our one-week vacation to the Big Island as we love Kona beer and thought this would be a cool place to visit (we knew the brewery tours were unavailable due to the pandemic). We were escorted to one of two outdoor tables on a patio without an umbrella or the beautiful greenery you see on the website-so ambience was fair. As far as food quality, I ordered fish at every restaurant we visited while on the Big Island. This was by far the worst. The fish in the fish tacos was overcooked and crusty. I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend.
Best pizza and fresh salads. You can even do half and half pizza in case you can't make up your mind. Two good IPAs - Kua Bay and Gold Cliffs. Very reasonably priced too.
Great spot, great food, great service, perfect weather
Aloha! Mahalo for the review. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Love the slice of pizza and kale salad lunch! Service was great as well!
Mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed your time and hope to see you again soon! Aloha!
I have visited Kona multiples times, as I live in Michigan, but always make it a point to come here! With Covid it makes it a little more difficult to get a table, which is just about the same everywhere else you go especially in Kona. My recommendation is to plan ahead when you want to make reservations but make sure you go here! We got the Garlic Cheese Bread and Bacon Mac & Cheese along with the BBQ chicken pizza. All was amazing and I never have any complaints!
Aloha! Mahalo for continuing to visit, stoked you enjoyed your time and we hope to see you again soon!
poor food choices, very very limited. 3 entrees and sandwiches and pizza
Also a nice time at Kona Brew!
Love the live music! This was the reason we wanted to go have dinner there.
Food selection is very good - we got a couple of appetizers and pizza to go with the beer. Outdoor setting is quiet and a great place to have a conversation.
Aloha Ken! Mahalo for the review and stoked you enjoyed your time. Come back and see us again soon!
Table for eight was ready and waiting at our reservation time. The service was great. The Poke’ appetizer was outstanding!
Mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed your time and we hope to see you again soon!
Good food! Huge portions, plenty to take home, or share. We sat outside, the weather was perfect! Of course, Kona, so perfect weather is expected!
Aloha and mahalo for the review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We visited KBC three times in a week while on the island. The brews were great but the real show stopper was the pizza. Everything we tried along with the pizza was amazing, but the pizza is the real reason we kept coming back. The poke was right up there with others on the island, and every salad we had never disappointed. Overall, this was our favorite place to eat in Kona. Highly recommend!
Mahalo for the stellar review! Stoked you enjoyed your time and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
We always go here for our first night dining in Kona. It’s a tradition that we will continue
Great beer, food & atmosphere. Lovely outdoor space. It felt very Covid safe with lots of room around the tables.
Second time here. Fine with the menu, really just “pub” food. But for the second time, the service was very poor. We showed up with 15 minutes left in happy hour and the server came by as happy hour was ending. Did make the pricing right, but still had to wait. Server never cleared dirty appetizer plates from our table until we were done with dinner. This place needs some
Leadership when it comes to the customer experience.
I had a great experience here. The beer is awesome and the food too. Highly recommend the hummus plate and the lemongrass beer.
Food was good but beer was better! Service was fast and I felt safe.
Good experience. Go there every time on the big island.
Enjoyed our last day in Hawaii at Kona Brewery. The beer and food was great but the service was even better!! Ola was very fun and made our evening special.
Aloha! Mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed your time and we hope to see you again soon!
If I had one last day earth, I would have my dinner here. An order of pepperoni rolls, the jalapeño popper pizza, and a couple of Hula Hefs. Great food and service.
Aloha and mahalo for the excellent review. Stoked you enjoyed and look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was outstanding- pizza was especially great!
Aloha and Mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed your time and we hope to see you again soon!
The best pizza you will ever consume!!
Mahalo for the review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We were served by a very pleasant waitress named Jill, she made our experience very enjoyable! Would highly recommend the Kona Brewing experience.
Aloha and mahalo for the review! Stoked you had a good time and we hope you come back and see us again soon!
The beer and food were amazing!
Mahalo for the review! We hope you come back and see us again soon!
Always good food and local beers
Mahalo for the review! Come back and see us soon!
A wonderful way to start our island time, we came right from the airport so this was the perfect way to relax. Pizza and beer, what a great combination!
Mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed your time, come back and see us again soon!
We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately at an outdoor table. Our server, Pamela (I believe that was her name), was so helpful and friendly. Beer was cold, pizza (half Greek for me/half Jalapeño Popper for my husband) was hot and her recommendation of a hot sauce exceeded my husband’s expectations. The Kilauea browning dessert was amazing, as well.
Aloha! Mahalo for the review and we're stoked you enjoyed your time! Come back and see us again soon!
As always great beers and pizze. Too bad the dark beers were out and the specialty glasses were sold too.
We felt safe and taken care off, but I can't feel ten 5 stars this time, something just didn't feel 100%
But we will be back :)
An excellent option for dinner or happy hour. The tables were well spaced and our server was great: timely and not pushy at all. The local beer was a great treat sampling the seasonal choices and left full from great food.
Aloha! Mahalo for the review. Stoked you enjoyed your time. Come back and see us soon!
We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The Kona beer selection covered the range of their beer styles. Covid-19 guidelines were well enforced.
Aloha and mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed and we hope to see you again soon!
Food and service are excellent. We made a reservation I would highly suggest it since it always seems busy. We had the garlic roast appetizer so yummy . Buffalo wings and pizza! Everything was great.
Aloha and mahalo for the review! Stoked you enjoyed your time and we hope to see you again soon!
We had the pizza, excellent - the best on the island.
Unfortunately there was some construction next door
Great Pizza and Brew. Saw ongoing cleaning at every table. Hand sanitizer available. Masks worn.
Mahalo for the review Deborah! Stoked you enjoyed your time and look forward to having you back!
