One of our favourite places in our 2 week visit to the islands. We waited for nearly an hour to be seated and it was worth it. Great food (delicious fish tacos), and great beers, fun vibe (but BUSY!), Iíd come back for sure.

Nice open bar area. Seating to the side and back. Food is better than standard pub fare. Service was excellent. Kinda hard to find. You can see it but getting there is a chore. Worth the effort. Plenty of beers to choose from. Even gluten free offerings. Iíve only been during the day. I hope I can go back.

This place feels more like a restaurant than a brewpub to me. The beers are good, the food is too. I was a bit disappointed I couldnít take any bottled beer with me (you can only get growlers filled). We sat outside and it started to rain just before our meal arrived. Luckily we could be moved to another table as half of our table got spraid on. Just so that youíre aware.

First of all itís great to find a brewery on Big Island, this place is close to paradise. We are staying in the Marriott across the street and are visting this place for almost a week. The beer garden is very green and nice. The service outside is mediocre, some staff is very friendly, others are rude. Although the bar inside is small, I prefer sitting here, good service and nice people. The food is ok, Pizza is the best choice, sandwiches are average, once they served me a cold one. Most of the beers are light, which is not negative considering the hot temperature here. We liked the Lavaman Red Ale, the Hula Weizen and the Cataway IPA. Overall I absolutely recommend this place when you come to this island!

Had my wife and her family walk what seemed like three miles to get to this place...for me, it was well worth it. Probably canít say the same for them! Just got some samples of what they had available. Nothing too aggressive or unique but all really polished. Beautiful location set in a tropical paradise. Playful and relaxed atmosphere. Wish we were at a hotel close...could have lived here during the trip!

This place is pretty awesome. I enjoyed trying all the brews here especially the Imperial Coffee stout. The service is pretty awesome and the food is utterly amazing. Overall, a really great place for a few brews.

(Visited 12/2010): Visited Kona during a stop on the big island on our cruise vacation. We walked to the brewpub from one of the stops on a bus tour. Kona is located at the crossroads of Kuakini Highway and Palani Rd. Parking looked to be ample around the facility. Konaís atmosphere both inside and out is about all you could want in a Hawaiian brewpub. From the gigantic tank in the outdoor waiting area, gift booth, patio, and restaurant inside it is all welcoming and beer-centric. They also offer regular tours as long as you sign up in time at the host stand. The tour is informative and ends with samples. The color scheme inside can best be described as mustard íní Tang and there are surfboards and fans. The beer selection at Kona is solid, from standard offerings to brewpub-exclusive beers. Some of the brews on tap when we visited included Bourbon Barrel Aged Black Sand Porter, Da Grind Buzz Kona Coffee Imperial Stout, Small Kine Bitter, Big Island Ginger Beer and Old Blowhole Barley Wine. All of Konaís beers are well-made. They also sell bottles like the Oceanic Organic Ale. Service all around, from the hostess to the gift shop guy to the tour guide to the servers is very good. Food at Kona is good as well. My wife and I both enjoyed our dishes. Overall I would highly recommend anyone visiting the Big Island to find a way to visit this brewpub. It is a paradise within a paradise.

First off, the beer here is SO much better than their bottled stuff on the mainland. And they have so many more varieties! The whole setup is very tropical and beautiful, and their efforts to "go green" are impressive. The food is very good and they use their own beer in many of their recipes. The brewery tour was fun and informative, but i would have like a few more samples at the end. (wouldnít we all?!) On the downside, the service was pretty bad. We were basically ignored once it became clear we were not ordering a full meal that day or lots of beer. It was a bit of a turnoff.
