Visited Kona Brewing (both locations) in November 2012. Beer is good and consistent for what I tried. Food is good. The Hawaii Kai location has a nice view of the bay, but it wasn't very exciting. The location on the Big Island is better. No ocean view, but it's close by. The bar atmosphere was great here, samplers are nice and reasonably priced. Love the touch of adding a hops bud to the IPA! Pizza was really good here, or maybe it was just the beer. :) I would highly recommend, and go back again!

This is Porter Paradise, two regular brew and several more experimental darks. We had a sampler and a pint each of the Black Sand and Limited Release Pipeline...delish. We can get the Pipeline (Limited Release) here in Central Texas, but it just doesn't quite taste as good as it did in Honolulu.

This was our first stop after landing, so we just had burgers. I would recommend trying something more creative.

The atmosphere on the marina was great and so was our service.

Update 04/16 - There has been a recent remodel of the bar area but the basic facility description still applies. The major change is that there are now 24 taps so that nearly all their standards and many seasonal/specialty beers are available. I enjoyed two brews from their Makana series, Wela Red and Aina Brown.
Koko Marina is the center attraction at Hawaii Kai and Kona Restaurant & Pub sits right on the marina. There is a double sided bar with plenty of seating as well as some tall tables and normal tables that extend out onto a small deck beside the marina. If you enter through the front doorway, the bar is on the right and the main dining areas straight ahead. The dining rooms are on several levels that include booths and tables that also overlook the marina.
While there is no brewing at this location, the taps generally include all the Kona standard and specialty brews as well as a few unusual, experimental varieties that are pub only taps. Iโ€™ve enjoyed a variety of styles ranging from Castaway IPA to Black Sand Porter.
The menu includes lots of entrees featuring their brews as well a burgers, sandwiches and good pizza. There is parking at the adjacent Koko Marina Center but it can get very busy and parking is often tight.

This is Kona Brewing's second location. I visited it shortly after it opened so my review is a little dated. I know that the food offerings were expanded after my visit to better fit in with the area.

Beer selection is the Kona Brewing lineup shipped over from the brewery in Kona and served in pint "sleeve" glasses.

Food selection when I visited was more or less pupus (appetizers) and pizzas with a few sandwiches. As stated above, I've heard the menu has expanded to include more entrees.

Atmosphere and the view are phenomenal. One really couldn't ask for more.

Service when I visited was great but it was mid-day and the place wasn't that busy.

A friend living in Honolulu took us there. We were without a car so made the trek via TheBus. Unless it's gotten better this can be a little confusing for first-timers (and sometimes regulars).

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 โ€“ โ€œLiquid Aloha.โ€
