We ate here 3 times on our latest visit to Kona. It is a great place for a casual meal with some excellent beer. It is open (and busy) on Monday evenings which is a plus in Kona since some restaurants shut at this time....More

I would! We showed up and there was only 1 ticket left. There are only 2 tours daily, at 10:30am & 3pm. The tour is $10 which includes the sampling of 4 beers, so it pays for itself.
