Just vacationed to Oahu and this was a must try. There were ten selections of beer on tap including some of the rarer ones. The waitress was prompt and professional. The food was top notch. I really enjoyed their beer and food. Will go back again if I am ever in Oahu. Must visit for all beer lovers going to Hawaii.
From 10/19 & 10/21 visits: Great brews, great service, and great food! There were 10 taps including 4 seasonal brews. I enjoyed the Coco-Loco the best! A great place to eat, drink, and relax. Great ambiance with a marina setting. A must visit for beer lovers! Happy hour prices weekdays from 3-6p.
I had a great time at the Kona Brewing Company on the Marina. A wide-variety of beers. I was tired of the standard Kona beers that you get in the grocery store. They had 20 taps. Several were seasonal or specialty beers. Oh...and they had a great, relaxing environment.
This place gets an A just for being on the water in hawaii. Great ambience. Friendly people. The food was good. Several unique beers that were only available on tap at the site. I’m sad not to access some of it as there is some tasty rotators. This is a great spot!

10 taps of great beer, a view and atmosphere that is almost the best ever. This place also has great service and food. I loved this place the beers where the best on the Island. Wow Kona has some great experimental brews also. I wish I could bring them back to the mainland they would just kick ass. A great place for lunch and or dinner. They also have great happy hour prices. A must stop in Honolulu. Just need to be diligent in finding it. A tad rough in finding it tucked back in the marina area. KONA Rocks. And as they say – “Liquid Aloha.”
Nice big bar area and restaurant, lots of seating and views of the marina. The food and service were top notch. The beer is good with a nice selection. Been here a few other times, along with this visit, I’ll definitely be back.
Great place to visit while on Oahu. The marina setting and surrounding mountains are very beautiful...especially at sunset and sitting outside...which was when and where for us. I would recommend this place for any visitors looking to get outside Honolulu for lunch or dinner...especially if you don’t want to travel too far...even if they are not craft beer fans. I really liked everything about this place (atmosphere...food...value...service) but one...I’m just not a Kona beer fan. As such, although I ordered flights and sampled everything of theirs...none of their beers really impressed me. The closest to a favorite was Fire Rock Pale Ale...which is what I drank anytime over 2 weeks in Hawaii when I couldn’t get something from the other local beer companies (Maui Brewing, Kauai Beer) or a nice stateside choice. Nonetheless I would return here for certain next time we’re in Hawaii...as I really liked the place itself.
By far, the best ambiance of the brewpubs on Oahu - sitting on the bay with the tradewinds blowing could make even Milwaukees Best taste good. Beers are all well made. Nice but not spectacular food selection. A great place to relax, watch the sun go down and enjoy your surroundings.
