This was the only place we went to twice in our week in Kona. Sure it's busy and loud - but the food and service was nice both times. And for outside dining it wasn't too hot (but you might ask for a table away from the band ; )

We were just going on the brewery tour (so we could sample beer afterwards) but the food smelled so good we had to stay. I'm glad we did because the food was AMAZING!!! We had wings, Greek Salad, Spinach/Artichoke Flatbread w. Chicken, Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry balsamic vinaigrette, and slice of Hawaiian BBQ pizza. The Strawberry balsamic vinaigrette was... More

Don't miss an opportunity to visit this place for some great beer and pizza. We finished our 8 tour of the island with a visit to the Kona Brewing Company and we were thrilled to relax outside with a couple of cold beers followed by a great pizza that my wife and I shared.

Had a late dinner with our family at this fun place. Several options of great beers on tap, but really enjoyed the Coco Brown Ale. Pizza was very good, and so were the sandwiches. Reasonably priced for such a popular Kona destination. There was a line (not bad) but well worth the wait. We'll definitely return and wouldn't hesitate recommending... More

The Black Sand Porter was fantastic. Pizza was good. Very busy - about a 1//2 hour wait at 2PM on a Saturday. Waiter was good but very busy.

There's just something about drinking the brews where they're born. They're better than bottled. And the food is always outstanding. Relaxed atmosphere. This is a regular stop of ours.
