This has been one of our favorite places to visit in the past. However, service was non-existent with our visit. Once we got... seated it was an hour before we got our food. During that time, our waiter didn?t check on us at all and it wasn?t until weflagged him down to ask about our food that he showed any interest in ensuring our drinks were refilled or even to give us anupdate on when we might see your food. After our meal, I tried purchasing a gift card and getting a growler refilled but stoodat the bar for 10 minutes without a single person acknowledging me. Eventually walked out. Super disappointed in the service. Idon?t think we will be going back again. Read more

Great place for a tasty meal. Live music on a Sunday night. Beer was good too.

Great food and excellent selection of beers. Large menu and variety. Nice open layout; half for a hangout area(scrabble and... decorative fire pit) the other half for food/drink orders. Went home with a growler of blueberry hefeweizen! Read more

Really disappointed because usually we do have an okay time but tonight was just absolutely not a good time. We waited 20... minutes for our drinks, another 25 minutes after that for our appetizers and then another hour for our main dishes which at thatpoint we had to get it to go because it was hitting 2 hours and getting late. Get home to realize that the meatloaf was burnt toall get out, edible but barely. I don?t know if it was an off night or this is just the continuation of a downhill trend. Read more

If you haven't had the wood fired pizza from Kalona Brewing you.are.missing.out. ???? Amazing pizza with perfectly picked... toppings & perfect, melt in your mouth, fried cheese curds ???? The atmosphere is great, the music was absolutely perfect, theonly thing missing (for my brother) was a tv because a playoff game was on lol Seriously great restaurant and the bartender(Brian, I think) was fabulous, he expertly suggested great drinks and let us sample some of their brews, the Horse Power is agreat light brew and the Peach is not too sweet with a delicious cinnamon touch ???? All sorts of yummy and I highly suggestasking the waiter/bartender for their faves and secret twists on their dishes ???? Read more

A few beers aren't bad. Only a few of what I call regular beers, lots of designer beers. It's sad that when you ask the waitress... about their beer list and they tell you to go take a picture of the chalkboard beer list. The cheese curds and onion rings arevery good. The rest of the menu is so designer oriented I couldn't find anything to eat. We went somewhere else to eat. Read more

This is the second time we've been to the Kalona Brewing Company. Years ago, we were passing through from Illinois going back to... Omaha NE and stopped in Kalona and ate here, that experience brought us back. This trip was just as good. Walking in we weregreeted and seated quickly by a pleasant young lady. Our wait was like an old friend; courteous, friendly and very helpful.Drinks and appetizer were fast and on point. We had the cheese curds and onion rings (not pictured, so sorry) and they were sogood. The cheese curds melted in our mouths... dangerous little nuggets they were! The NY Steak was more like a filet intexture. The steak, as well as the polenta and sauce it was served with were eye-rolling good. The fish and chips were very goodeven though the fish was a bit over-cooked, I've had this happen a few times at restaurants that serve fish and chips. Ipolitely brought this to attention and it was rectified to my satisfaction. Mistakes are not a deal-breaker to me, not doingsomething about it is, they took care of us on this issue. I can deal with that. I had a couple different IPA's and was a happycamper. The beer selection was big and diverse, more than I remember and expected. Beers are very subjective so I'll leave it toyou to decide if/when you make your way to the Kalona Brewing Company. Cheers! Read more

We had wonderful food, great local brew, and fun with the bartenders. We will certainly be back! The Black and Blue brick oven... pizza should be a staple on the menu!! There wasn't any sours on tap, but the Red Rover was very tasty. And my husband'sHorsepower and Sheer Madness was really good, he said. Awesome find for a couple from Mount Pleasant looking for a good mealafter a country drive. High five, KBC! Read more
